I got pregnant by my best guy friend whom I've known since kindergarten.. we've gone to school together all the way up and into college. I was terrified to tell him I was pregnant because he is (was) such a good guy that I didn't want to ruin his life and his college life because I knew he'd drop everything to help me anyway he could! ... little did I know he was actually a selfish guy who i knew nothing about and when i told him, he decided it would be best that i just have an abortion. He said he couldnt and WOULDNT do this. He said he wouldn't give up his life and didnt want to be a "half-ass" dad so he just wouldn't be one at all. Now he tries to make it clear to everyone who talks to him about it (we have all the same friends) that he's not the father and tries to make me feel awful for raising a kid without a father and wants me to put the baby up for adoption. His mother is a family friend of ours and when we called her to tell her I'm having a boy, she said she had really been wanting to talk to me about everything but that her son (the baby's dad) told her she's not allowed to have anything to do with us.
I'm due in a month and am not giving the baby his last name and I know he wont show up to sign the birth certificate but I need child support. I'm scared to take him to court tho because I don't want him to fight for custody and have to drag my baby back and forth from house to house! Any advice?
