For the last six months, this 28-year-old woman has been dating her 27-year-old boyfriend after they met through some friends they share.

Since the day that she met her boyfriend, she shared with him that she has a 6-year-old son from a previous marriage.

Her boyfriend has met her son, and they get along wonderfully. When she does spend time with just her boyfriend and her son, there are no problems. In fact, her boyfriend spends one or two nights over at her place every single week.

“It’s important to mention my son has severe ADHD that we are just starting to medicate him for,” she explained.

“He struggles in social situations, especially when there are a lot of people he doesn’t know/if he’s in an unfamiliar environment. Once he’s overstimulated, we usually have to leave an event.”

Now, her boyfriend lives at home with his parents and his two siblings, who are in their 20s. He’s still living at home so he can save up enough money to purchase a home, which he’s close to doing quite soon.

His family home is not exactly meant for kids. His family has no kids, and there are a lot of breakable items or decorations throughout his family home.

His parents also like peace and quiet, and they enforce very strict rules, even though her boyfriend and his siblings are technically all adults.

“There have been a couple [of] occasions where my boyfriend has politely uninvited me to things when I tell him my son is coming with me,” she said.
