I remember the first time I met his daughter and I had no idea how I was feeling; I wasn’t as nervous as I thought because she was only a baby, yet I so desperately wanted this tiny human to like me.It is such a huge thing introducing your child to someone and I truly felt honoured because I knew it meant that my boyfriend wanted me to stick around.I hope that when his daughter is old enough to understand, things will be easier and a lot of tension will be relieved.You have to remember that your partner is with you for a reason and as long as you are happy, the external factors don’t matter.I sometimes feel as though I am sharing my man and I can’t help but roll my eyes when I see her name on his phone screen.His ex’s opinion of me isn’t particularly nice, which does cause animosity and often leads to arguments between my boyfriend and his ex.
You may be the type of person who is open to many possibilities and because of that carefree, nonchalant attitude, it may work for or against you depending on the kind of older person you choose to date.
After hours of ‘peekaboo’ it appeared that she had relaxed and became much more comfortable in my presence.
I think it is extremely important to never assume your role in a child’s life; I only ever want to be a friend and someone who could play hide and seek still at my age.
It is always awful when you see someone you love with someone else so I cannot imagine how difficult it is when a child is involved.
His ex is still very much involved in his life and I don’t particularly like it but I absolutely accept it.
In fact, seeing him with his daughter restored my faith in fathers, as mine is non-existent and I had a negative perspective of guys with children because of this.
