    Hi all,

    I’m in a pretty complicated situation.  I’ve been with a girl for the past few months.   She got pregnant unexpectedly and she told me she had also been sleeping with her ex.  She’s convinced I’m the dad, and if so then I’m totally happy to step up and be a dad.  The thing is that we’re not seeing each other anymore.  She’s still seeing her ex and I don’t want to be part of it.  I’m trying to figure out what to do when the baby is born.  I had initially suggested that I could move in with her and we look after the baby together.  She owns a house so to me that was a logical thing to do.  My plan was then to look for my own place after 6 months or so.

    Unfortunately she’s still seeing her ex so I’m starting to think that this may not be the best idea.  The baby has to be with the mum for the first few months and I want to be there to support them both but I don’t really know if it’s going to be possible.  The final kicker is she’s exhibiting some symptoms of a personality disorder which, is making it even more difficult to deal with her.  These were before the pregnancy so it’s not due to hormones.

    What I’m trying to figure out is if there’s another way to be a coparent without living with the other person but still being there to help and support.?
