DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend says he wants to be with me but his ex is pregnant and I don’t think I could handle that.
We have been together for two months. He is 22, I am 25. He had a girlfriend but wanted to end it before he’d met me.
He finally finished with her last week and the next day she told him she is pregnant and wants to keep the baby.
He is devastated as he does not feel ready to be a dad.
His family blame me for the split though the break-up was not due to me.
I have said I will step back and let them try again, for the baby’s sake. He says he wants to be with me.
DEIDRE SAYS: His ex didn’t get pregnant by herself and he has a responsibility towards his child if she has the baby.
You were right to suggest you step back and let them see if they can make it work.
Get on with your life and give yourself the chance to find someone new and free.
If it turns out he’s not going to be a dad and you’re really right for one another, he can come and find you.
