    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone has been through anything similar? My non school attending, not liking people much 15 year old son is not happy about me having a boyfriend. It isn’t about his dad, my ex, as he is happy we aren’t together and doesn’t really want a relationship with him. I was single for a year before I met my current bf. My son can’t really articulate why, I have provided reassurance re me still loving him and his brother just as much as before and how it is a different type of relationship.

    Hello.

    I don’t have any advice as I’m in the same boat.

    It takes time sometimes for them to adapt to a new situation. I had this with my boyfriend I met after I’d split from my husband. My kids took a while to be ok with it at first,it was them feeling uncomfortable so they would tease him. Think it was more they wanted to form a kind of relationship but were not sure how to go about it. They are fine about it now but it has been 2 and a half years now! Although one of my daughters still sees him as taking me away from her, although I’ve told her that would never be the case. Sometimes I would put them in situations where they would have to interact to get to know each other! Which can help the situation, it’s never easy but can be better with communication between both parties.

    Thank you, that’s really helpful. We have been together for 15 months but avoided introductions for a long time as we weren’t sure how it would go between us etc

    One person added to a group can change the whole groups dynamic, which can be a bit unsettling.
