why wouldn't my boyfriend tell his son about me? His best friends know we are dating and so does his brother but not his son or his ex. We have even spoken about having a child of our own but I want his son to know that I am around before considering making such a huge commitment such as having a child together.
how long is a reasonable time to wait for my boyfriend to let his son know we are dating

Sounds extremely suspicious to me. If I'm with someone I really like, and we're really serious, I want my loved ones to know/like them too. I definitely wouldn't conceal them. That's terrible, and I wouldn't put up with it.

TWO YEARS? I am totally a firm believer that one should never introduce their children to someone they are dating for less than six months or until things are serious enough to where you know and they know you are in it for the long haul, but two years is really suspicious to me especially since he's told all his friends and things about you so he's not exactly trying to hide you or pretend you don't exist around them. It's time to get real, or rather it was time to get real with your boyfriend and let him know if he doesn't get it already that you are serious and since his son is clearly a part of his life, you want him to be a part of yours too. I personally wouldn't want to have a child with someone who can't even introduce me to the child he already has. I don't so much mind the ex not knowing, that's whatever, and she's not my ex, but I think max before you introduce a fifteen year old... not even a young child who is probably more fragile, but a 15 year old, I'd say a year.
