ASK REAL GUYS
Is He Ready to Move Forward?
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: My ex boyfriend and I haven’t dated since 2006. We had an off and on relationship in 1997, and we both saw other people after things ended. A few days ago we started chatting about life in general. He has a 20-year-old son who is a Marine, and since I don’t have any children he said “Would you like to have my baby?” I was shocked by his question to say the least. I haven’t given him an answer yet, what do you think I should say? Do you think he wants to start a family with me, or does he just want to sleep with me before running off?
Avery: The fact that you had an on/off again relationship with this man shows a pattern. If you are inclined to be a single parent and raise his child, then go for it, but if this is not the scenario that you see for yourself, I’d say that you should move forward with this man very carefully.
