I met my boyfriend when i was 17 and he was 21. we have a 2 1/2 year age difference. im now 19 and he will be 23 in december. I knew he had a child, and his child will be 5 this month. I love that little girl very much. But I find that the older i get, it bothers me more and more. the fact that he has a child with someone else other than me, even though we didn't know each other when he had the child. it was a one night stand that resulted in pregnancy. Why does it bother me more and more? I love him very much, and the babys mother has a problem with me for no reason. The child and her live in a completely different state and he only sees her maybe twice a year.
