Dating ex wife male
Ultimately, however much he's around, there's no way he can replace you.
Simply be yourself with the kids and try to improve your own relationship with them.
Tonight, he interrupted a conversation I was having with my son, speaking directly to him from about 20 feet away.
This has worried me, but don't want to step out of line.
During that time, he never came to a game, graduation, dance recital, etc.
Last week, I believed that he showed up for the first time, and told my son it was good to finally see him there and, "I would have to go introduce myself." His reply was that was not the guy she had been dating....
All you can hope is that she doesn't try to turn the kids against you, and tries to put her new man into your place.
Don't shy away from asking about things they do with him – although, in most cases, children tend to be garrulous, so they'll probably tell you anyway. Your kids don't need to know that there's a turmoil inside your head and heart.
It can be hard enough to maintain a good relationship with your children if there's just a limited amount of time you can spend with them.
It never feels like enough, and you worry that there might be a distance growing between you.
That feeling can worsen if your ex gets a serious, long-term partner.
The natural feeling is that the new man in her life might end up closer to your children than you are.
