Accepting a step
Ok so I have an 11 yr old daughter from a previous relationship. I've been with my partner for almost 6 years (co-habbiting) so she and he are really close, they both have the same ridiculously confident personalities and a fantastic mutual respect for one another (I am so so lucky). I, on the other hand are more introverted, I have a few good friends, not a large circle, find it difficult forming new relationships etc etc (I'm fine with this). My partner has a 9 year old from a previous relationship. Theres no jealousy or similar issues - I sometimes collect him, friends on fb with ex. I really really want to like this boy, I just find it difficult. He seems so different from the 3 of us, I really dont want him to pick up on that when hes older. I just can't bond. I feel so guilty as my partner and daughter are so close. I think its partly due to my introverted personality but I really dont want this to escalate and become a major issue. Can anyone suggest some games, activities, anything to help!
