I am a mother of a one month baby girl .I’m currently doing my second year Masters .I am so stressed I to an extent that I even struggle writing my work most of the time because I’m not at peace. I’ve been with my boyfriend since 2010.Everything was going well until I gave birth to my daughter, he started being cold and distant .He was however very excited when I told him that I was pregnant. He sent his uncles last year February 2017 to pay for damages and told my family he would come back for lobola negotiations. For the past two months when I call him he tells me he needs his space. I can feel it inside that it’s over for us. I am ready for anything .My relationship status is confusing.
Don’t be hard on yourself. It could be a misunderstanding from your side. You are drawing conclusions very fast and I don’t blame you. Most women would do the same. It may be true that he needs his space. He was there throughout your pregnancy. He is probably nervous about being a father. You would not understand because you became a parent for nine months alone before him, you went through all the process of coming to reality that you are a mother, yet he is only digesting the matter now. Give him the space. Don’t easily lose hope on people you love.
