My son is going to be 5 and his dad and i split up about 1 year ago. He and i both have new significant others. The first time I met his girlfriend I had just found out they moved in together, she tried to avoid me and run away from me. My son chased her down and asked if she said hi to me. I tried to shake her hand and say hello, but she pretended to be on the phone and shook my hand with the same hand i put out (Instead of the opposite hand, like a normal hand shake). I tried to meet her a second time and she was sitting on the couch in their house but didnt even look up at me when i said hi.
Flash forward a few months to now...when i go over to pick my son up from his dads (at least twice a week) she hides in the bedroom or the backyard until i leave. A couple days ago, my sons dad "liked" one of my pictures on social media and i guess she threw a fit about it...claiming she is the "other woman". Granted, he moved her in with him, supported her until she got a job (recently), they have a puppy together, and spend all their time together. He and I still have a civil relationship and i maintain a civil relationship with his family, mainly for my sons sake but i get along with his family well and adore them. Last night, she "liked" a picture on my social media, started following me, then undid everything and blocked me...but i still got notifications on my phone.
She is immature and disrespectful and i feel it's time to have a talk with her. bad idea? where do i start? what should i say? I feel it's necessary now and i'd like to get to know the girl that's spending so much time with my son. I feel like i need to get the point across that i am going to be around but i am not a threat...I've had it with this!
