Dating divorced dad long distance
Like, years ago when my (live-in) ex-boyfriend and I broke up, I kept the window unit we bought together not because it reminded me of him and our relationship, but because he was moving into an apartment with central air and I wasn’t.Everything you’ve described about your relationship with your boyfriend and the way parenthood affects it is normal. His relationship to his ex and her family is normal (and healthy, it sounds like).But “normal” doesn’t necessarily mean right for you.If parenthood doesn’t leave your boyfriend with enough space in his life and heart to suit you and make you feel as important as you need to feel in order to be happy in a relationship, it is OK — it’s essential, actually — that you own that, communicate it, and MOA.
From your description, I get the sense that he is not over his ex-wife because it appears that he still carriers a lot of emotional energy about to his former relationship.
We spoke on the phone a lot, had some arguments, shared some secrets and realized we really liked each other.
