  • I Refuse to be a Single Parent Again

    I met my ex three years ago he didn't have a job and said that he had just got fired from his job at the time.

    We began dating three years ago and our relationship got off to a rocky start. He would stand me up and I wanted to know that the problem was. Well I cracked into his email and phone and found out that he was reaching out to other women and couple for kinky sex. Being over 30 I decided to work it out because I was tired of being unmarried and alone.

    We began to live together and I didn't trust him because I had found out so many lies. we continued the relationship having some good times but mostly bad. Shortly after this I became pregnant. This would be his only child, his parents first grandchild and my second child. I was not sure of whether or not to have the baby because he began to act strange in my sixth month of pregnancy. Well needless to say I found out he had cheated.

    He promised to marry me and took me to get a marriage license and I was thrilled. A few days after I came home from work to dangling hangers and no marriage license. He had took all of his clothing and marriage license to his mom's house and I haven't seen the license ever since.

    We tried counseling and he'd said he didn't want to be with me because I had checked his email. I was devistated. I called the young lady and she admitted to the affiar it was a one night stand.

    I knew that if I aborted the pregnancy the relationship would be over. So I gave birth to my second boy he is 4 mos old and I don't know if I made the right decision. I love my son but he reminds me of being a single parent again something I hated. I was almost done and now have started all over and now he has told me again that he want the relationship to end after we finally signed a lease to a new place three months ago.

    It has been almost a week and I haven't spoken to him except for the counseling session we were suppose to have last Wednesday but it wasn't really a session it was just an assessment. After the counseling session, he ran off to his car and didn't say anything to me.

    This guy has an anger problem but I don't want to be single, especially a single parent. He goes back and forth from our home to his parents home and they allow him to stay there.

    He told his mother that he never wanted to move with me at all. I am devistated I have a 17 year old from a previous relationship and a 4 month old what should I do?? I don't want to be a single parent again. I am so depressed . . . . I call my mom all day everyday and she doesn't know what to tell me other than leave.

    I don't want to hurt or be single for the rest of my life, I hate dating and I want the father of my child to be in a family setting with me. I cry everday because I believe he is cheating and using marajuana. Please help me.
