I have a 21- month old son to start off. I am only 20 and have been raising him alone for the past year and a half.
So I have been dating my boyfriend who is not my son's father (Tony) for almost 6 months. He is the first serious relationship since Tony and I have no idea what to do. My bf has met my son a few times and hears me talk about him constantly, but I am not sure where to go after that. How soon is too soon to introduce someone as a bf and not just a friend? What if my bf doesn't want to meet him, how much time do I let go by until I need to realize I need to move on from that person? I am so confused that it hurts.
My boyfriend is the type of person that came from a big catholic family. He has a vision in his head that he wants to get married, have lots of kids and raise them in his home town. He claims he is old-fashioned when it comes to dating, but I feel like that is not an option for me. How can having a child out of wedlock and so young go in the direction of old-fashioned?
I just really need some advice about what to do with the current bf and how to approach future relationships. *This is my first post ever, and its kind of deep. Sorry!
