  • Sounds like the relationship you are in is not the one for you and you should be happy (at least most of the time) with you are with. If you want to leave the relationship by all means do so and take some time for yourself and your child. Do not leave for another person because the grass is not always greener on the other side if that is your only reason for leaving. If this old love is meant to be with you then it will happen even if he has to wait awhile for you to get on your own two feet. Good luck.

  • I agree....I wouldn't leave for another person. But by all means if you want to leave GO. Don't stay for any reason other than your own happiness! If you do want to get back with the ex...just give it time. get to re-know eachother and be sure before you do that to your child! It confuses kids. Good luck girl! Why is it you are wanting to stay in your current relationship anyways????

  • i guess i want to stay mostly for my kid and im not 100% unhappy or miserable.and im used to not getting treating right.i guess also due to fear starting over and all that.i have no job no car so i would have to stay with not sure that ex is mr right but its just confused dont know what all i should tell the ex i still want to talk to him.i have no bad feelings just unanswered questions and we have both wondered what if.

  • it sounds like you know this ex is not mr right but neither is the man your with. so the choice is easy to pick but not easy to do. i would leave and not get involved with either one. you could end up the same with the ex in this current marriage of yours. i would never say to divorce here if you were married but since your not then i can say leave.

  • Tell bf what you want out of the relationship. It's never too late to renegotiate and see what each other wants out of it. If you goals have changed then it's time to move on to what you know you want. Give the bf a chance to save what he has. he might just feel secure in what he thinks he has. He needs a wake up call to know someone else wants what he has and if he doesn't appreciate you and give you what you want and need then someone else will. Just talk with him and tell him you are not happy and thinking of moving on. I would NOT tell him there is someone else.

  • I skipped over all of the other answers and I'm just going to say.... it's easy to get along with someone online because they can tell you what you want to hear etc. In person it's not so easy. Don't leave and jump right in with the other man. Date, get to know each other in person... your child may not like him, he may not like the child may not like each other. Don't leave for the other man, leave because you want to or later when your child asks why you split with Dad you'll either have to lie or feel guilt.
