Not at all... I would be disappointed in a girl that I was dating saying that to me.
I know he is being sensitive with respect to his son, but his some is a teenager and he is not giving him enough credit!
I think if he were to sit down with son and explain things, most sons or daughters would be okay with it.
I am sure his teenage son would be bright enough to pick up on what was happening anyway, so he would just chalk it up to his dad and you lying to him.
Just be honest with his son and he would have more respect for you and his dad that way!0

Ugh, GaG never disappoints with the self righteous doom and gloom replies.
You are the first person he's dated since the divorce. He is concerned on several layers.
1. Son tells ex wife about you, ex wife makes your bf's life a living hell, possibly even refusing to allow him to come around son if she is vindictive like that. Either way, very uncomfortable.
2. Son may be resentful of new woman, so boyfriend wants to ease you in to his life
3. Not sure how long you have been dating but most divorced folks are very careful about bringing people they are dating into kids' lives until they are sure things have staying power. Even then, introducing them as a "friend" is safer for everyone at first.
The lists go on and on and do NOT include being ashamed of you in any way.1
