Help! Comfort me!!
Hi am Veronica, been single for a little over 4 years. DS was 6 months old when his dad and I split.
So now I was on POF for a couple of days and met this totally amazing guy! I have a 4 year old boy and he has a 7 year old. He and his ex were never married but lived together. They broke it off about two years ago.
My new man Sheldon has been single for about 2 years so it has been he and his son. His ex was cheating and has been with that same guy the whole time.
Sheldon has been a complete dream....dozen roses the day after we met...three or four weeks into dating he tells me he has never met anyone like me and that I have changed his life because he never thought that I existed.
Then presents me with a beautiful diamond neaklace. He told me that he is completly committed to me and does not want anyone else.
Problem? His son says that he feels like his dad doesn't pay attention to him when we are around. Sheldon doesn't think so... We only see each other the weekends and one night a week
because he lives 25 miles away.
He also told his dad that he likes Liam more than him.
Shaun said that he likes Liam and I.
Sheldon thinks that his son is upset but maybe not expressing it the way he means too.
I was over there last weekend and his dad was working on his boat (races boats and he in the process of rebuilding one) I was heading out and his son wanted to come with me. I had stayed over the previous night and we were all going to a birthday party together. Anyway his son gladly went with me to the store and ran a few errands. His son is nice to me and my son. He even asked if we were going with he and his dad for thanksgiving (to the river for the boat race)
Sheldon says his feelings haven't changed he just doesn't know what to do about Shaun (his son). I told him that if his feeling haven't changed that we should just spend time together when the kids aren't around (which is not very often
He has vacation coming up the week of thanksgiving and said that he is going to go do some things with he and Shaun.
So anyway.....super long post...got that sick insides feeling ...any comforting words of advice? Help!
So I forgot to add that I have felt Sheldon pulling back and kept asking if something was bothering. He kept saying no. Finally today I laid out and said I feel like your feelings have changed. He texted back that he had been slowing down because shaun was upset about us but his feeling haven't changed. SO THIS IS WHY I HAVE THE SICK FEELING YIKES!!!!!!!!!!
I think might be freaking out for nothing but so afraid of being hurt. I was good being alone. NOW UM....SCARED! I love this man!
