Dating after baby

Hey mommies,

My son is just about 4 months old. His father and I have been split for awhile now, and I feel like I'm ready to date again. I recently met a nice guy on a dating app, we've been texting back and forth for a little over a week. He doesn't know yet that I have a son. I'm 20 years old, he's 25. We haven't even talked about going out on an actual date, we just sort of chat throughout the day. I'm not at all ashamed of having my son, he's the love of my life. But I don't want to bomb-barred this guy with this news since its not even that serious. My girlfriends have been telling me that I should let him get to know me before I tell him. My son is a big part of me though. Im feeling bad about him not knowing. But I also don't want him to think I'm out trying to find a new daddy for my son. So I guess my question is, should I tell him as soon as the opportunity presents itself the next time we talk (Cause I obviously wouldnt say, "goodmorning, I have a baby"), or should I give it a couple days to see if talking even goes anywhere?
