I’m a 30-year-old female and have a child with my current boyfriend, with whom I’ve been living for 10 years. The problem is we’re roommates rather than lovers.

I recently met a guy at work and fell madly in love with him. He treats me like a queen and I love him beyond words.

I’m now caught between the two men. I told the second guy about my current relationship. He doesn’t mind for now but tells me I will need to make a decision in the future.

The baby daddy doesn’t know about the new guy.

I don’t know what to do as I don’t want to lose either of them.

It seems like you and your baby daddy let your relationship go stale. Both of you will have to work on it if you want to save it.

But, will he be willing to do that because he seems comfortable with the way things are? You could have tried to work things out with him before finding an alternative.

What’s left for you to do is to make a decision about who you want to be with.

It would be better for you to do it sooner rather than later, before you end up losing them both.
