I have read many sensible posts from poly parents about this - basically the smartest and safest thing to do is wait to introduce a lover to your children until you've been seeing that person regularly for a few months (I'm thinking six) and know there is a solid commitment first. It won't kill you not to see the boyfriend while your kid is with you. You've barely begun seeing this guy - it's less than three months. Hold off on having them meet. Just wait until the relationship is on solid ground, so you know you can trust the person with your son AND so your son doesn't get attached to someone too soon (in case the relationship ends).
The world opens up... when you do.
