Customer Question
My boyfriend has been a...
My boyfriend has been a compulsive liar almost the entire relationship. Me finding texts to other women, catching him in ringing women, you name it. We now have a child together. My sexual urges are close to none. And I’m fine with that. He’s not. I reconnected with a ex a few weeks ago and I’ve started getting old feelings again. I’m actually thinking about leaving my boyfriend for him but we do have a 10 month old and he is the best father figure for my daughter, which I got when i was 16 with another deadbeat man. That’s the only thing stopping me. My daughter doesn’t need more drama like this in her life but I’m not happy being in a relationship with whom I don’t trust. Please give me some advice?
