Hello Ladies. I was with my guy for 9 and a half years. Last year we welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. About two weeks ago he decides he wants to leave. You see before we had my baby, we decided to leave our apartment because he lost his job and I was on maternity leave. We decided to move back in with my parents. He didn't feel comfortable because at the time he was jobless. My parents didn't have a problem just no sleeping in the same bed. That was understandable. He finds a job when she turns four months. We only have one car so I work in the daytime and he works at night. My mother is starting to voice her opinion on him and finding a car. I'm explaining to her that we are working on that. He's getting frustrated. So after a very heated argument between me and him, he packs up and leaves. He finally finds a car that day but later on he wanted to talk. We never do. He asks can he pick up our daughter. I said no problem. Well when he picks her up that next day, I ask him what's going on. Apparently it's over. He can't take the stress of the entire situation. I'm like Dude this is just something we have to go through until we get back on our feet. He's not having it. It hurts because I understand what he's saying but you can't give up so easily and unfortunately this is a pattern of his. When times get tough, he gets scared and runs. We are getting too old for this (late 20s). What advice can you ladies give me on a smooth transition into single motherhood and if I should hope he comes back?
