I’m 22 and my ex-boyfriend is 28. We have a two-year-old son together.

After I became pregnant we separated and he did nothing for the baby – I was on my own. Because I was angry  I refused his calls but I would like to give him a chance to know his son better.

The problem is, he wants me back but he’s still dating his other baby mama.

What should I do?

It’s commendable that you’re will­ing to forgive him, and let him be part of the child’s life. That’s the best thing you can do for your son.

However, I wonder if getting back together with him will be a good idea after he hurt you so much. He left you with a newborn and now wants you back but is still involved with another woman.

Think about it carefully, will it be worth it? I suggest you nurture the relationship between him and his son while you do yourself  a favour and move on.
