Ladies, I am about to bare my soul...I don't want to be judged, but I guess that judgement and truth is one in the same...just let me have it after you read this..I'll try to be brief. :-)
Okay, so during the Summer of 2011, I began seeing a married man, and after several months of seeing him, I became pregnant in the Spring of 2012. After telling him that I was expecting, I hardly heard from or saw him. Out of the nine months carrying my son I probably saw him once. During the few times I heard from him, he would tell me that he was just having a hard time accepting the situation, but I couldn't understand that because I had no choice but to accept life as it rapidly changed before my eyes. He wasn't present for any appointments, wasn't there when our son was born, didn't sign the birth certificate., etc.
My beautiful son is now approaching 7 months and his father has seen him maybe 4 times, and I thought that he would not only fall in love with our son as much as I am, but that I would get back in his good graces as well. I learned that he and his wife separated when I was still very early in my pregnancy, and then after a recent visit, he laid some real truth on me--that he has been seeing another woman for the past year...
Have I been played? YES. Should I have expected something like this to happen? Absolutely! I just feel like the world's biggest idiot. I just wanted to vent and get that off my chest. I was going to ask that you be gentle with me, but this situation doesn't require gentleness...it needs a kick in the arse. I'm ready.
