Meet lying boyfriend’s kids?
Sonia, 29 Birmingham
Ireally love my best friend’s children but I’ve never wanted any of my own.
I made this very clear to my boyfriend when I first met him on a dating site.
We’ve been seeing each other for three months now, but one day he blurted out that he actually has two children already.
I was totally stunned. He apologised for not being upfront with me from the start, but now he wants me to meet his kids.
I’m still upset that he lied to me, and now, I feel I can no longer trust him. He knew I didn’t want children in my life yet he began dating me.
I’m so torn. Should I agree to meet his kids?
Pick Me Up! reader Dorothy Hatherley says, ‘You love your friend’s kids, so why not meet your partner’s? You told him at the start you didn’t want kids, but maybe back then, he wanted to see how your relationship went. Now he knows he wants to have a future with you, he’s probably a bit ashamed he didn’t tell you.
Give it a try, you might enjoy it.’
Pick Me Up! reader Lindsay Jane Magee says, ‘Blimey! Question is how much do you love him? Is he the one you want to spend the rest of your life with? I understand you think he’s broken your trust but he may have thought it’d scare you off. I don’t think you should meet his kids, but if you do decide to, you need to think hard about it as they may see you being around for the long term.’
