I just don't get this!! Am I being unreasonable???
Started dating another man with kids. 'Im 34 and live in a small town, there is no way around it. I've learned a lot from this site over the past year and I took time off from my last rship to reflect, learn, etc.
New guy: has 2 kids. Been divorced 4 years. Met him on eharmony. During our first date, we began talking about previous relationships. I asked him about his ExW. He said he despised her until 2 years ago, but now they get along and all is well. They have 50/50 custody. He said they work so well together, that they really don't have set days to have/drop off the kids. They work the visitation schedule around each others' schedules. Great, I thought. She sounds reasonable.
I haven't yet her yet because he wants to make sure we are in a solid rship. That's understandable. But, Saturday night I was at home while THEY, yes THEY, and the kids are playing at Chuckie Cheeses and going to the new museum together. Like one big happy family. And then Sunday, she brought over a cake that she made for all of them. And they both call eachother all the time. And they sit next to eachother at practices, games, etc.
Ugggh I'm jealous. He said it's best for the kids this way and their rship is platonic. I hate that I'm so jealous ab this. Is this such a bad thing? I haven't met her yet, maybe she is really nice and we will get along fine and all will be well. My sister said she doesn't think their "relationship" will continue for the next 12 years as is. She said they will either get back together, have a FWB, or have a big fight and hate each other again.
Should I run?
