Im not sure what to do.

Ive been seeing a guy who i met from work for around 2 years, we dont work together now and we have separate places too.The relationship got off to a rocky start due to work colleagues gossping and me cheating with an ex, however, we are both still together and still serious. he stays at mine every night and has keys to mine so its like we live together just he still has his place.What is bothering me is the fact he has two kids and hasnt introduced me to them all this time, or his family or his friends, he seems to keep his life compartmentalised. he seems to share childcare respectively with his ex partner and they seem to get on, however, it was his daughters birthday the other day, they had a meal him, his ex, his daughters, all my boyfriends family, his mother brother, sister, nephews the works, and it really made me jealous as i was just sat in alone and not included. Is this normal? He also pleads proverty all the time, always has an excuse as to why we cant do anything together and yet he paid £400 for his kids birthday, it just really does get to me. why am i not included? why am i kept separate? i feel like the mistress or something and i talk til im blue in the face, he says youll meet his family when you need to and so on, it will happen when it happens, well cross that bridge when we come to it, i am so frustrated and just dont know whether its worth staying in this or just ending it, as i feel as though he is hiding me, or just cannot and will not commit.I really dont know what to do anymore, talking gets me nowehere. part of me thinks should i give myself a time limit and if nothing has changed then maybe end it?

Health And Fitness why-am-i-kept-separate-from-his-family Why am I kept separate from his family?!? Relationship & Sex    I also HAVE to question if the divorce is final or not. He STAYS as your EVERY night, so you don’t go to his place much? His place is also separate from you?I have to agree with N91, why start a “time limit” now? It’s BEEN 2 whole years already and nothing.I think that NOT introducing kids too soon is a good idea. If a relationship is going well at about a year, it’s time. However, my guess is his EX doesn’t know about you and they get along well and raise the kids together still – though I wonder WHY he doesn’t have the kids? If he is at your place every night? When does he have HIS kids?And INTRODUCING a new “GF” shouldn’t be done at a kid’s birthday party anyways. That party is about the birthday kid. NOT the GF. So in a sense I CAN see why you weren’t invited. However, 2 YEARS? and not introducing you? Seems off to me.The financial issue is another thing. He will ALWAYS have his kids to be a higher priority than you. Which isn’t a bad thing, but he also prioritize saving his money for things for the kids. Again. NOT a bad thing. BUT it does leave YOU a bit in a bind. As he won’t have any money to pitch in to do ANYTHING really, with you. AND that won’t change either.You DO seem like a “mistress” or even a “Friend With Benefits”. Having a key to your place means YOU have included him. Let him in so to speak. Have YOU introduced HIM to your family and friends?

I have a different take on this.I think he is still very much married and you are just the side girl. The reason I say this is that your are a secret from his friends and family.I think in two years you would have met at least some of his friends and family.Yep you are his girl on the side.Dump him he will never give you what you want or need.

I think you blew it early on by cheating. He hasn’t committed to you in any way. If he wants to finish it tomorrow he can hand back your keys and go back to his life without too much disruption.Everything else is the same- no difficult conversations with his family or children.He has prioritised his children. He spends his money on his kids and their stability is key. Even if he was committed to you these would be good things. I guess you haven’t managed to convince him you are a good long-term prospect.

Health And Fitness why-am-i-kept-separate-from-his-family-1 Why am I kept separate from his family?!? Relationship & Sex    Normally when a person is in love they want to tell the whole world and are proud of their partner. Doesn’t that sort of say it all? It sounds like you are his dirty little secret for whatever reason. Why do you stay? If he won’t give you answers and just keeps putting off your questions then don’t you already have what you need to know?

Health And Fitness why-am-i-kept-separate-from-his-family-2 Why am I kept separate from his family?!? Relationship & Sex    Why start the time limit now? It’s been 2 years. Does anyone actually know about you? Has he told anyone? Or are you truly in the dark?This doesn’t sound like the signs of a positive relationship, it’s clear for all to see. You started by cheating on him, that’s not really the best foundations now is it? I can see that possibly being a factor still that he’s not fully gotten over it and may be keeping you away from his family because he doesn’t see this as a serious thing, it’s somewhere where he has sex on tap without having to fully introduce you to his life.If one of your friends came to you and told you that they were being kept secret by their partner, would you tell them to give it two years and see what the situation is? Or to find someone who doesn’t mind letting the world know they’re together?
