Im dating my sons girlfriends father
He told me on a Friday that they were together, and then on Saturday, my daughter had plans to go to the movies with this friend, and I was under the understanding that the mother was picking them up and taking them to the movies.Well, my ex pulls up, driving his girlfriend’s car, to collect my daughter, almost like a family and I was livid.
Sometimes she wants a little space and distance, and I’ve just always encouraged her to bring that up with him.She was pretty upset, and she was struggling with that. I just encouraged her to talk to him about it and I said, “Listen, I know that you and your brother are Dad’s top priority and if he doesn’t know how you feel, he can’t change his behavior.”I didn’t want to get involved unless I absolutely had to, so I just encouraged her to talk to him, which I guess they did and he’s been able to help her feel better about it. I’ll ask him how he feels about it and he’ll just go, “It’s fine, it’s cool.” He’s a pretty reserved kid.He’s very social but he doesn’t talk very much about his feelings.Dad’s around all the time, as much as he wants, and if the kids say, “Hey, I want to go hang out with Dad” or “I want to call Dad and have him come over and play basketball,” that’s fine with me. I always try to stay focused on not wanting them to lose their dad or feel like they’re losing their connection with him.From my dating coach’s perspective, your kids’ activities would definitely be somewhere to meet other adults who share a common interest and who may also be single so it’s not surprising that new romances evolve.
