My son's father and I aren't together anymore. It was a mutual split and we've both started moving on with our lives. He now has a new girlfriend and he is constantly telling me about how wonderful she is with our son. He emails me pictures of her and my son at the park playing together and brags about all of the things they do together. I'm happy that he found someone that cares about our son and is good to him. But I haven't figured out if he keeps telling me all of this to show me I have nothing to worry about when he is with her or what. I can't help but feel like he is trying to rub it in my face so to say.Answer Question

I like frogdawq's answer but I have to admit it's a hard pill to swallow to pretend but I guess that's what you've got to do.
I married last year and have a 5 yr old stepdaughter. Her mom wants nothing to do with me and the child can't even say my name around her or she gets "mad". When Grace, my step-daughter, talks to her on the phone she gets nervous if I'm talking in the background when he mom might hear me. Grace and I have a good relationship so it's a matter of Grace "pretending" to please her mom. My hubby really despises he's ex wife but I'm always so impressed with how respectful and calm he is with her for his daughter's sake.
I personally would only think he has good intentions if you truly in your heart know this man that he wants to share this info with you for selfish reasons (he trusts you and you were together along time and he still can't separate) or he really wants to reassure you. .
