I have noticed this both on here and in my own life but it seems that dating/ living with a man who has children makes you a step mom. Am I the only one who thinks it is creepy to call yourself a "step mom" which mean woman married to the father of the children, if you aren't married.Answer Question

I don't think it's actually creepy but hey if you aren't comfortable with the title, it's not a requirement that it be used. I call my dads girlfriend my stepmom. To me she's a little more then just "my dads girlfriend" and I feel like I'd be putting her down by calling her that.

Oh I definitely can see where she would be pissed. I feel like "stepmom" is a title earned, not just thrown around to every girlfriend dad runs through.
