She's obviously taunting you.

What with her flaunting her belly and all.

I think you should confront her.

Social work. It will be in SW and it's more of a community direction that I'm going in.

Then you should start applying now. It's better to have a job now than later. You will have to deal with the fact that your pay is never going to be all that high either. So the pay between you and mm isn't going to be all that fantastic.

I think all of us would like to believe that you're right.

If not, I have the deepest sympathies for the OP's future children and for anyone she comes into contact with on the job (if she ever actually gets a job as a social worker).

This post can't be real, no one is this desperate.. You don't know this guy, a few dates and skyping and attraction does not a relationship make. Also, the fact you think being needy and clingy in a relationship is a good thing, and a guy should appreciate that is super scary. You are no not ready to be a mom, and I would say not even ready to be in a relationship with anyone. Most guys would be running for the hills.

You're intentionally trying to make it sound bad but it's not. I know of people who literally met someone married them super fast and are happy. Or people who had one nighters and got pregnant and are married to the person and happy. That guy wants a baby so how he gets it I'm sure it won't matter he's not bad he wouldn't ever be a dead beat dad or something

Hmmm, you say that people can have "one nighters", get pregnant and end up happily married.


Well, maybe 1 out of 100 or 1 out of 1,000.


They are more likely to be like my co-worker, whose had to sue and take the baby daddy to court again and again for child support. And, their son developed serious emotional problems due to constantly being "neglected" by his father.


Or one of my friends. Yes, they got married but fought like cats & dogs and ended getting a divorce shortly after their baby was born. His wife was still in the hospital when Dad went to the divorce attorney.
Or another friend who managed to stay married until their baby was a year old.


Or someone in my neighborhood. She told that man that she was pregnant and he immediately moved out of state and did not leave a forwarding address.


Or the family in a school where I was a teacher, the dad ended up actually killing the child (beat it to death) because he felt trapped into getting married.


Frankly, I did not see any happy endings in the people that I know that had that happen to them.
