Hi. This site looks great, but to be honest I don't know where to post this. It's a step mom issue. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity in that group. It's also a single mom issue, so maybe that's the place. Here it is in a nut shell. I am a single mom now, but not for long. Getting married to man MUCH older. His daughter is almost my age. My son is 5. Obviously, she doesn't like me and thinks I have alteriior motives. I was a working mom, but recently quit my job - mutual decision with my fiance. Nothing wrong with it - but this is fueling her fire.

Thank you. He's actually 25 years older than me. One of my biggest issues is that I know what the stereotype is for the women in relationships like this and I admit that it APPEARS that I fit the stereotype. So I get her concerns - but I don't get her condensation and lack of respect. I have spoken to him and he just tells me to just ignore her. I could go on and on about the specifics, but i think I would bore people here. lol

Or actualy thats something your fiance should do,talk to him about whats bothering you,and then let him talk to his daughter. Or you both talk to her.
