Sometimes I feel ignored due to my boyfriends child: Advice?

My current boyfriend of 10 months has a 4year old kid. When he has his kid, I feel ignored, less text sometimes no text or calls at all I try to reach out but I feel like I am bugging if he is not even making some sort of effort to reply or answer at times, but when he doesn’t have her, he gives me the attention I want. I have thought about ending it with him not just for that reason, but I feel like I am wasting my time if he can’t appreciate that I am willing to work with him or at least make time even to talk or text, I know he has a busy agenda — our first Christmas I gave him a gift and one for his kid. I didn’t expect anything in return, but sure enough, he didn’t bother even to give me a greeting card. Am I overthinking this? Thank you in advance.

His child should come first. Sounds like a decent guy, one you may not deserve because you’re petty…

Sounds like a great Dad to me! :woman_shrugging:t3: I think he’s just being attentive. Just try to see it as a good sign that he’s a good father.

You think you’re more important that his 4 year old child? Lol. Get a fucking life.

Thats kind of sad, it seems like he only gets his child every once in a while that time should be for him and his child, you can see/ talk to him any other tome let his child get some of his time.

He seems more invested in his child than you which is fine. You shouldn’t have gotten with a father if you weren’t prepared to be second place. Find a man with no responsibilities lol

He has a kid you’re a grown ass women get over yourself if you’re not ready to take on the responsibility of a child. His kid comes first over everything including you

:roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes:
U can’t be serious? Let me guess… You’re a teenager? Grow up a bit more before u decide to have a relationship. Especially with someone who has a child.

A persons child comes first. No matter what. If he inly gets his son occasionally, you should commend him for putting all his time and effort into having a successful relationship with him.

I mean, I hope its because he is giving that attention to his daughter! Be grateful he is a good father if that’s the case… sorry but our children should always be #1 … so if you’re expecting for him to put his child 2nd after you, you’re very selfish and he needs to leave you honestly
