I have been dating a guy for about 5 months now. Both my 7 yr old boy and I spend a lot of time at his place with his dogs.
I am a single mother in that i pay my own bills, have my own place, and raise my child 90% on my own with the help of a paid sitter to help during school days.
My sons father is in the military so he moves around a lot. He moves in Jan 2013 about 15 hours away from us.
I have never asked much of my boyfriend, I know my son is my responsibility. However, I feel that he should not immediately dismiss me when i ask him if he would help.
For the past couple of days i have had severe pelvic pain and i wanted to go to the doctor this evening. I asked him if he could please pick him up for me from the sitter (I dont like to leave him there later than i have to and i had school today.) He immediately said no.
Now, he is a 33 year old bachelor without any kids of his own and no ex wifes. He comes with no baggage. My sons father is not a problem either. Very healthy and drama free.
I wanted to talk to him about a little help after my ex leaves the state. I mean- he is trying to become part of the family no?
He said i was wrong- that he was dating me, not my son.
I feel so sad because he is an amazing guy and he KNOWS i come in a package but he is not willing to take the time to bond more with him.
And yes guys, this man is very serious about me. He is so respectful, honest, and caring but i dont know how to feel about him and my son??
