So I think I might start dating againI've never posted on this forum yet alone this thread so heres some background info to get ya started. My dd is 22 mo and her dad and I are still friends but we've been broken up since just before she was born. We had been together since I was 18. He cheated on me and took his new girlfriend to visit his parents, his mom told me about this. SO when he got back I said it was over but we've remained good friends.
There's nothing sexual between us but we still share a house (he lives up stairs and i live downstairs). I'd say we mostly live together for convenience were both in college and can't afford seperate houses and the landlord lets us rent with our large dogs (we each have 2 dogs). He's had a few other girl friends over the past two years but never brings them to our house. One of his friends even tells peopel there roomates. I haven't bothered to start dating again. I am totally over him but I guess I'm too busy being a mom to care about my social life. I haven't even had a girls night out with any of my friends since my dd was born.
Anyways, there's this guy I've was friends with for a few years but we haven't seen each other since my baby's daddy and I split up. We were never super close but we hung out a lot in groups and were buddies. I always thought he was hot and never hung out with just him intentionally ykwim? Well we started talking again a couple of months ago and last week I told him I used to have a crush on him...luckily for me he said the same thing.
I just don't really know how to explain to him that I still live with my ex because I don't want him to get the wrong idea or think I care about someone else. It's been so long since I've been in a real realtionship I'm just kind of clueless where to start. Wow thanks for reading this if you've made it this far. I'd appreciate any advice even if it is just common sense of follow your heart
