My boyfriend and I have been dating "secretly" for three years. He has 4 children from a previous relationship, where his girlfriend and him ended up having kids at only 16 years of age. We are in love and are emotionally preparing ourselves to tell the world that we are going to be together and not be afraid of other's opinions. I don't want to hear about getting a new boyfriend because you know what? The grass isn't any greener on the otherside. I stick to what I believe in and this is the man that I want. During the past three years, people have assumed that we've been seeing eachother. Unfortuantely, I couldn't handle the stress of people finding out so soon, so I lived a lie. I hate myself for that, but what was I suppose to do at that time? Lately, we've been having difficulties seeing eachother because he is always caught up in his kids activities. This has become a strain in our relationship and leads to constant fighting. I don't know what to do anymore. We only see eachother on average about 10 hours a week so that we don't conflict with his busy schedule. I want to be able to tell my family and friend about him but I don't want his children to hate me or him and lead a confusing life. I need advice. Anything will do.
