For those of you who have left your baby's daddy, I was curious how you got up the courage. Not that mine is abusing me and I'm afraid. If he were abusing me I would have been able to leave him within seconds of it happening. I don't put up with that crap.
My problem is that it just doesn't seem to be working between us. We argue a lot about such stupid things and I don't feel comfortable around him anymore. I feel like I can't talk to him or even be in the same room with him for very long because I'm afraid of us fighting or something. I'm not so sure I even like him anymore. I don't want to show him any sort of affection and I don't like it when he's home unless he is spending time with our son and basically leaving me alone.
I just don't know where to go from here and I don't want to hurt his feelings or cause any problems for our son or even worse - leave him and then realize it was a mistake. I guess I just need to know if it's actually been worth it for anyone else. I know plenty of people who left their baby's daddy's, but they left because they were abusive or addicts. No one I know left just because it didn't work out anymore.
