Hello! I'm not sure exactly how this works, so I'll just shoot. I come here because I need advice on a situation that not many people can give me, given that they have never been in this situation. This seems like a decent place to try and seek some kind of answer. I've been in a relationship for about 9-10 months now with someone whom I previously dated a few years back, before he had a child. We now live together, and his son is just about 2 years old. The child's mom and I get along well, and do not have any issues whatsoever.
Just found this site and very excited to find some people that have grappling with the same issues as me. I've been a SM for almost 4 years now, and it seems to be getting harder and harder for me to deal with it. I have no close friends that have skids, so no experiences to learn from other than my own upbringing (which was less than ideal!). My skids really couldn't care less about my existence. Their BM is a jealous and pathetic woman (she really is a nightmare), even though my DH and I have bent over backwards to make our situations work as best we can.
