My daughter is 21 months old. Her father has been an overall absent figure in her life. She doesn't even know who he is. We've been going through the court process for pretty much the entire time our daughter has been alive. The courts keep giving him chance after chance to prove himself and yet he never does. Im at a point where I need his help. I work full time, go to school full time. And it gets hard when I dont have support from family like I thought I would. Im about to start the fall semester and I asked her dad if he would be willing to work out an agreement with me and see his daughter. He said yes, then wanted to know if I was dating anyone. Truth is...its complicated. I am but Im not. The new guy is in the navy and we have been friends for a long time. We have been talking about having a relationship since February and are just waiting for him to come home. He is so sweet and wants to give us a title now and wanted me to tell my daughters father. So I did. Now her dad is being a complete jerk. Saying what a horrible person I am. That I hurt him more than ever. That he had always hoped we would get back together but I ruined it. He sways back and forth between wanting to do the agreement. Now the new guy is mad at me . . . I dont know why. He wont tell me either. Its like Im so sick of her dad bringing me down and causing all this stress on me and other people. His focus is never on our daughter, its always about him him him. Its like who gives a damn.... I have OUR daughter to take care of while you go have your freak attack....
UGH I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I need help, advice, anything.
