Pregnant and feel stuck(4 Posts)
I’m 5 months pregnant with a man I no longer love.
I had caught him messaging other women and stupidly took him back a month later I was pregnant. He’s good to me other than this but is very needy and I can no longer stand being around him, I find him boring, fake, unattractive and we have no real connection with him at all. We live in my house (rented) but he’s paying all the bills as I lost my job so I’m basically financially dependent on him and I feel so stuck. There is no way I can leave him as I’ll have nothing. I wish I had stayed away when I caught messaging other women because since then I feel nothing for him and actually dread ring around him. No real solution until at least another year when I can work again so I don’t know why I’m posting just so depressed.
Sounds like my ex! Extremely needy and cheated because he couldn't deal with problems 🤮
Well I'm a lone parent to my son and love it. But I didn't leave straight away, make sure you have a
Plan when you do.
I had to fake love for months, even tho I knew I was leaving or was hard having him touch me and believing I forgave him.
Just remember it's all for him.
I notice my ex always talked about him and always told me we couldn't end cause he needed me - wait what about what I need
@itaintthatdeeep Thank you so much for replying. I feel like I’m faking love now it’s so hard. Can’t stand him touching me and keep telling him to stop because I feel sick just as an excuse although him touching me repulses me. I’m setting out a plan now and will leave before the baby turns one. Glad to hear you love being a single mum
I'm good friends with my exdp ex because we both have a dc from him and he's so good at being manipulative. He treated us both the same.
I think finding out that it's just an act made me get over him really easily.
I know how you feel, I felt the same - it
Just creeped me out him being touchy with me. I've gone 5 months without seeing him which really helped.
Oh yes I really do, I don't think of all the happy family stuff because most time those families have their issues.
It's me and my little man and I'm good with that.
