I'm 22 yrs old and 27 weeks pregnant. First time mom too and i left the father Feb 6th hoping he would realize how he was treating me. He wasn't a bad guy before. He has a 4 yr old daughter that I took in as my own because she is precious and I love kids. I recently tried talking to him and he won't talk to me. He's 27 and I figured he'd have more maturity than me considering how young I am compared to him. But now I see I'm the mature one. I know it's not just me and him anymore we have a baby girl on the way and I don't want her to grow up fatherless like I was. And I don't want him coming and going as he pleases either... Basically I just want to know how long does it take for them to come around or will they ever come around?

I've tried talking to him about it before and hes not the talking type. Im not an angry person and i don't argue with anybody so I'm not sure why he wouldn't talk. And I do hope he can be there at least for his daughter I'll be ok with that.

Well, leaving someone to make them realise how they are treating you is a bit of a strange way of trying to tell them you want them to treat you better and you want to be with them. There are probably other ways you could have handled it. Men are not mind readers. As far as he is concerned, you left him because you don't want him around anymore. So he is NOT going to come around to wanting to be with you through this strategy. He can, however, still be a father to his child without being your partner.

Yea that's true i agree. I just don't want to kid myself into thinking it'll work out when it won't i know we're strong women and can do it on our own but it'd be kinda nice if the father were around to watch our daughter grow :/
