Today, a reader tells us how her ex-boyfriend slept in the same bed as his daughter. Her story, after the jump....
Here's her story....
I was dating a great guy a few years ago. He was divorced and had a 12-year-old daughter. After quite a few amazing dates, he introduced me to her. I love kids, but she instantly hated me. I understood that--I mean, she probably wanted her parents to get back together. But it was really rough.
The weirdest part? Whenever she would stay with him, they'd sleep in the same bed. His apartment had two bedrooms, but I guess they liked sharing a bed. Now, that's fine if you have a baby or you're traveling or something, but every night? The same bed? With a seventh grader? It seemed really weird to me.
Finally, I brought it up and told him that I thought it seemed a little inappropriate. He got really mad and told me that I shouldn't be competitive with his daughter. It was so creepy--I mean, I'm not competitive for his parental love and devotion, but I am for his bed! Needless to say, we broke up soon after.
Dear readers, what do you think? Would this be a dating deal breaker? Have you ever dated a guy with kids? (Would you?) How was your relationship with his kids? And what about your parents: If they've ever dated anyone, was it weird for you?
