Daughter unhappy about father dating
We have both had our share of failed relationships (I am 32, he is 39)and can appreciate what we have now compared to what we've had in the past.As if an ex and a 5 yr old isn't hard enough on a new relationship, toss in this is a long distance relationship (same province, different towns).Are you going to let this child stop you from loving him?Considering you're catholic, I'm also going to bring this in.And, let's not forget the ex wife who uses the child to manipulate the ex husband. I prefer to stay single until I find someone without any such baggage (yes, baggage).
Accept defeat and move on, this is courageous and will save you a lot of heartache in the long term.I come from a very strong catholic background and im very close with my parents and if they were to find out they would never allow me to be with him and they can never know because it will be the biggest dissapointment and I dont want to lie to them for the rest of my life.I dont know what to do..I leave the only guy that i have ever loved or stay and try to make it work even though im miserable??Of course the people who already have children when in a relationship with a person who has a child will say all sorts..we are selfish and that we need to grow up or that we do not really love our partner.However, for them it is a handy exchange of baggage: their boyfriend has baggage and so do they, so they can only accept each other's baggage and try to make a go of it.
