mrmaximum Posted August 5, 2008 Share Posted August 5, 2008 I guess I'm just venting but I appreciate any feedback this thread generates. Here's the sitch; just had the eldest of my exes's kids contact me after about 7 years. It was quite the experience let me tell you as he is a man now and no longer a child at 21. Very awkward and full of a mix of emotions but I did reply to him and relate my current sitch. I'm married now with two kids (step of course) of my own. Talked to my wife and she is all good with me speaking to him and all that. I was just worried about what I do at this point. Do I be a friend, do I try to be a father figure, I mean, when I met his mom I was literally a year older than he is now. I was just a kid and idealistic and very naive which did indeed affect the situation. Just got a revelation that rocked my world. I found out that his younger sis is now a single mom and she isn't out of highschool yet!! I was terrified that this was going to happen when I was with her mom and now my worst fears have been realized. I know that they are really no longer my responsibility, but I feel like I have failed her in some way because I couldn't be there for her as an example. Thanks for letting me vent, I appreciate the opportunity to do so. I only talk to the eldest at this point and although the others are on facebook, we've made no moves to communicate to each other or even add each other as friends. Kinda wondering what I should do at this point. Link to comment
