Just curious if anyone has any advice for me. I am dating a guy with children. I have children of my own. My kids get along great with him. Our kids love playing together. Problem is I am worried about meeting his ex. As per her request, she wants to meet me now that things between us are getting serious.

Its hard to meet the ex of your partner. There is not much you know of her until you do. Just be polite and respectful.

She obviously cares about her kids. The kids probably talk to her about you as well. Best advice is to be friendly and recognize how much you enjoy her kids but that she is the mother. It's how you'd want to be treated too.
Things will be so much easier if everyone can get along and perhaps ask your "guy" for advice? If she is super insecure, or is she bossy and controlling? Having a feel for her personality may help you figure an approach when you meet her. You like her kids and they like you so you are off to a good start!
