Long story short, I dated a guy (we went to the same schools from elementary through high school, but never saw each other since we had second grade together-weird!) and we got in contact through Facebook last November. We ended up talking every day and although he was in the military (out of state), we communicated a lot and eventually started dating. He knew from the beginning I had a daughter and we talked about it as much as a single mother can, and he said he was okay with being a part of my daughter's life as well as mine. HE wanted to meet her and get to know her (she's 2 1/2) and see if she liked him/got along with him. He was stationed 10 hours away but it was only going to be for 6 months (it's a lot but we were fine with it). Or so I thought. He ended up saying (on my birthday) that he "didn't think he could handle having a child right now"...etc. It was all out of nowhere for me, but he had said he had been thinking about it for a few days.
Well I got upset/angry/etc because I saw that he's dating someone. It's been a couple months, but I feel hurt. I know it's common when you know your ex is with someone else, but I thought I was over it. But seeing him in a picture with his new girlfriend just made my heart drop. I think I'm angry because I realized, personally, that some guys choose not to be with someone because they have a child.
