Anyone else? Mason's father and I are still together but living separately because I live with my parents.We don't get a lot of time together because of work and school and it feels like I'm doing it alone.

If you feel like you're doing it alone then tell him that. Tell him to come over more, spend the night (if allowed) and remember that it won't be for ever.

I'm a completely 100 %. My daughter has not seen or heard from her "father" in 4 years, last time was when she was 5-6 months or so.

I'm not any longer but the first two years of my daughters life I was (100% pretty much the first year and we started dating right after she turned 1 then moved in together right after she turned 2). I agree with Anniken, if you feel you are doing it all alone tell him, you shouldn't have to do it all alone especially if y'all are technically together.

Thanks girls and Tanja if he's done that than she's better off without him.

I know... we definitely need to talk about what's going on. He pays for 1/2 of everything Mason needs but he's not very hands on.

My name's Anniken, my daughter is Tanja But yes, it is his loss because she is a fantastic and great girl.

Communication is key to all, he needs to be involved even if it may not be that easy right now with you two living apart but it is still his kid. It is good that he actually helps with money and stuff, just remember that he is your boyfriend and your kids dad and you're in this together.

No worries, you aren't the first to do that
That is understandable but make sure you're both on same page with stuff before moving in together, it is a huge step to take and can be hard if you're already having issues with him not being as active in your son's life as you'd like.

In a way I enjoy living with just Mason and I (above my parents garage). No having to share my bed or tv . We will definitely be doing counselling through our church before we take any big steps. He and I have a problem of taking the other for granted sometimes.

I agree, communicate with him & be honest about how you‘re feeling!

Kay‘s dad was around for a few years then bailed basically. I feel like Ive raised her on my own from birth cause even though he was around, he wasn‘t very involved.

I was a single teen mom. It can be really hard. Good luck.
