My girlfriend says we can't see each other any more because her 16-year-old son hates meDecember 18, 2018
I am 49 and have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for a year. I have a son of 16, too, who lives with me. He knows my girlfriend’s son a bit but has no problem with me seeing her. He is polite to her and always gives us privacy when we ask.
Her son, on the other hand, is no longer friendly. He used to enjoy coming out with my girlfriend, my son and me. This has all changed.
There are so many problems with him that my girlfriend says we can’t see one another any more, especially as her son is threatening to tell his dad all sorts of bad things about me which are totally untrue. She is naturally worried.
DEIDRE SAYS: He may be picking up animosity towards you from his dad.
Tell your girlfriend that of course she wants to treat her son considerately but it is damaging for kids to get to feel they call the shots.
My e-leaflet on Stepfamily Problems covers such issues and should help the both of you sort this out.
