I am a single parent as you guys know. I have met someone who i think is great and really lovely. Trouble is he doesnt know about my baby boy and i dont want him to automatically rule me out thinking i am looking for a surrogate dad for my baby, when all i want is someone to have a laugh with and be twenty three with. I know i should have mentioned it immediately but originally i assumed he knew. How do i tell him the truth without immediately putting him off.
I would be honest and tell him about your ds you could make it funny/relaxed by saying you have "another man in your life" as this may break the ice slightly. The longer you leave it though the harder it will get.
TBH once you have told him, if he runs a mile then what have you lost? Maybe someone who wouldn't appreciate your ds & the joy he brings to you. If the issue doesn't faze him then you may have found someone worth holding onto .
Goodluck & I hope it works out.
if he really enjoys being with you then him finding out about your child shouldnt be a problem although he may go quite for a while (thats shock 4 u) tell him asap otherwise he will see it as if you have been lying to him and he wont respect you as much. If you really like this someone you will respect him by telling him. good luck.
do you know waterfalls thats all i have done all weekend. he makes me laugh, he accepts my son, he is compasssionate, very intelligent and responsible. And a damn good snog with a fab backside how lucky am i!!!!!!!!!!!!
