My boyfriend and I brokeup last year in June.We have not spoken to each other since. We have a 20 mnth old girl together. He does not visit the baby(by choice) but he do pay maintainance. I would like us to start communicating gain for the sake of my little girl.It is important to me for my baby to have a relationship with her father. How do I approach him so that we can start talking again without him thinking that I want him back again.?

MAke it clear that your concern is for the child, and that without the pair of you resuming your own relationship, it is necessary for you two to communicate for the sake of the child, and to enable him to remain a presence in her life. But I also agre with the other readers, that if he hasn't been bothered to WANT to be a presence in her life, maybe he isn't going to prove necessary to her, if oher male family are available to fill that role
