Am I being unrealistic to want a man who seems totally in to me and I'm totally in to him? What about when you both have kids and ex-spouses? Why do I feel like I have to compete for his time? And when I voice my concerns, he lets me know I'm being needy and unrealistic. Ouch. We've only been dating for 2 months and I've tried to break up with him twice now. He argues that I can't expect any other man to be any different than him because I have crazy work hours and I have a kid. He has "normal" work hours and 2 kids with 2 ex wives. How in the world can I make that work? I like him but I end up feeling like I'm on the back burner. Sometimes the way back burner. In a different kitchen that he totally forgets about. And the excuses! And he wants me to be so understanding since he has to balance his custody with the exes. It's nuts. I work long hours but I have my son on a set schedule. How am I being unrealistic by wanting a man to be around? He said that maybe I want to be smothered. No! I definitely do not. But I want to feel like we're on the same page. Maybe I am out of touch and don't understand men. I know 2 months isn't very long. So that's where I give into his argument that I'm being unrealistic. He obviously wants to be with me, he keeps convincing me to keep him around.
