Kathryn Rateliff Barr has taught birth, parenting, vaccinations and alternative medicine classes since 1994.She is a pastoral family counselor and has parented birth, step, adopted and foster children.Same thing applies to a woman dating a guy with kids, by the way. ” when Tom Cruise says to Cuba Gooding Jr., “Can I ask you a question? Scott was a single guy dating a woman with kids, ended up marrying her and says he couldn’t be happier.
The reason is because being in public is a less frequent occurrence when compared to being at home in private.
As with anything new, practice is needed or in this case just feeling comfortable with this new situation.
After time, the child will feel more and more comfortable and frustration will lessen.
We worked it out but the whole thing leaves a little sour taste in my mouth. And do you think I was over reacting when I confronted GF about this. Well it was your first time in this situation, correct? Some people also are happily married for decades even though they NEVER warmed up to the in-laws. We have been dating for about a yr and I met her kids about 3 months ago. I've met her ex..seems nice/respectful and a good father. I got to meet her family this past weekend for the first time at her house (we don't live together). But I didn't want to create a scene or give anyone the wrong impression, so I grinned and beared it. When GF and I had some time alone, I told her how I felt and was somewhat angry for her putting me in that situation.
Just want some feedback especially from others who may have been in similar situations and how you dealt with uncomfortable situations like that. Based on your description of the ex's relationship with your gf, it seems like that isn't going away. I'm sure it was awkward for you, I've been there too, but you need to look in the mirror for your own advice. Her ex was there and the kids along with her family. Seeing them interact together and GF interact with ex (not in love at all but get along great)... It's hard enough to meet the family, having the ex husband present just makes it tougher.
