Q. I’ve been dating this guy, “Steven,” for almost a year and a half. Prior to meeting me, he had a child, “Adam,” with his ex-girlfriend. She ended up cheating on him and they broke up shortly after Adam turned 1, and he’s 5 now. Adam is shared between both of their houses — more with her than him — but whenever she drops him off at Steven’s place and I’m there, she gives me really mean glances and won’t even speak to me.
At first I thought, “Alright, I’m the new woman in Steven’s life. She has a reason to be upset if she still has feelings for him.” But as time went on, she wouldn’t even ease up just even a tiny bit. Things actually got worse with her texting Steven to see if I was there before dropping Adam off.
