One thing you need to know about us is that no two of us are alike. While there are a lot of commonalities, we will all react differently to a given situation. If it were me, you should not be excited about this. Excitement means change, and (as so many have said), change is disturbing, if not overwhelming. What might be better (if it were me), would be supportive, caring, and understanding. Say that you know it is a big event, and a big change (both in the relationship and his life) but you will be be there to help him through. He needs to understand, not just be told, that together you can see it through. He NEEDS you right now, even if he can't express it.Oh thank you for saying that. If you don’t mind me asking…Is this a common occurrence among ND individuals? Having a reaction similar to this just because it is big news?
aw what great advice Shamar! Do you have any advice on how to get him to talk? I’m going to have a conversation with him in two days. My approach was going to be to tell him how I am excited and I think that he’s going to be a great dad. But that I am feeling a little bit abandoned and losing confidence that we are going to be doing this together because I haven’t gotten any answers. I was going to tell him that I think he’s a great person and I know that he is not trying to hurt me. But I would just like to know how he feels about the entire situation. Do you want to stay together and help me raise this child?
What do you think of this approach?
