Overall, I would have thought that he would be better at relationships since he was previously married. That's a huge turnoff and I would suggest to your boyfriend to leave you.I love him very much and I could be with him the rest of my life. Please, any advice that can provide insight into the relationship or help me not be confused? Because the only way you'll know you are in love, is when all your needs are met by a person. It only shows that you cannot take care of yourself and that you're relying on him to pick up the slack when you drop the ball. Now, the part about him not buying you a bday present two years in a row indicates that he's not in it. So either way, he should leave you or you should leave him.anywho, I dont think you should continue spending time with this man that doesn't seem like wanting another serious relationship the way you desire to have one. Because at the end of the day, he already did the whole married thing.. he's not giving you as much attention as you need because you would think that a divorced man would know the basic values of being a good boyfriend/husband but then you have to ask yourself, why is he divorced.always, but sometimes hints a clue. I can tell you have strong feelings for him and when i began to read your post, I read about his 17 year old daughter and thought he's almost done having to converse so much over her with his friendly ex wife.
If I need something that costs money he doesn't offer to help me. It bothers me that he doesn't give me anything and that he makes me feel uncomfortable asking him for anything.
Sometimes when he is angry with me, I feel as though he is acting out a previous event that he had with his wife. In his eyes I'm his queen - and i make sure he understands that( I make it a Well gymgirlie men have responsibilities after a divorce that you couldn't possible fathom. It is give and take, and time for you to understand that he is older, probably does care for you, but in a different headspace, and for you to grow up and be supportive, not tear him down.
For instance, he accuses me of lying when there is no reasonable reason to believe that I am. They are left in financial straits and have to pay alimony and child support, then face the stigma that you just proved that women stay away from them BECAUSE they are trying to be responsible to their children (goes to prove my point that they like douchebags). I'm divorced with children and dating a girl that's about your age.
I would not be wasting my 20's hoping this older guy is going to be yours one day. Just making a side note that sometimes it's the Mother in certain circumstances that pays the father the child support. Essentially he has asked me to enter into a long, long distance relationship with him.
I know that is hard to hear but not nearly as hard to accept as accepting you are 37 and that you missed the boat for a life completely. And if he's not what you are looking for, and he can't afford you. If the bag doesn't isn't investing enough to the new bag.... In my instance, not because she wants to, because she has too. Let him know l love you dearly but l need your best efforts... He has told me that he loves me and would like to be considered as an candidate to father my children.
