Kind Of A Vent... Also Need Advice If Any Of You Ladies Feel Like Helping A Momma Out Please
Issue one- I've gone back to work full time recently. I like my job and my "brother" is providing cheap child care, so that's good. But other than that, I'm really getting no support. I'm a single mom doing her very best, but my family is basically of the "oh well" attitude. They'll tell me to get rest, but no one wants to help make sure that happens. I'm burning the candle at both ends, and i stay exhausted. Idk what to do.
Issue two- my SO still hasn't told his family about me. Almost four months in and they have no clue he's even dating anyone. He was talking to his father the other night and his dad asked where he'd been the night before. I HEARD him say, with my own ears, that his friend John picked him up and they played video games all night. First off, my name definitely isn't John. Second, we definitely didn't spend all night playing video games. When i confronted him, his excuse was that every time he tells his family he's dating someone, they end up breaking up. Don't get me wrong- forever isn't even a consideration right now... But shouldn't he have just a little more faith in me than that by this point?
Issue three- same SO, different situation. There have been a few times the last few weeks that he's blown me off completely. Two weeks ago, he had to be out of town for a few days. Before he left, we made plans to spend this past weekend together. He gets back and he's made plans to go tubing with his buddies. Oops, he forgot. Ok- i brushed it off. Everyone forgets once in a while. Then, the last couple nights, he's too busy to talk when i get off work. Or we talk for a little while then he needs to go, then he'll text and ask if I'm still up so i text back and say yes. His response is then something like "I'm ready for bed. Goodnight." Idk what to think.
Anyone have any ideas? Please?!
