How long is too long?
I am new here! Here comes my story.
I am not married (divorced for a long time). I have a boyfriend of 9 months who is also divorced (very recently). We started our relationship very slowly, so things were developing slowly which I liked because mistakes were made in the past.
He knows my daughter (19) and is very nice to her, he also knows the rest of my family.
He does not feel ready for me to meet his daughters (25 and 19). Older one lives in NYC, younger one is in college 2-3 hour drive and she lives with him during school breaks. Both had hard time with his divorce (or he feels they did).
Not only he is not ready to introduce me he cannot even tell them he is dating. It makes our relationship rather complicated.
He keeps giving me different time frames: give me a month, give me two month, i don't know when, maybe 6 more months. etc.
He loves me and treats me nice. In his opinion 9 months is not that long and he also thinks that meeting children is too big of a step. On top of everything he is obsessed with his daughters, talks about them day and night, and I am under the impression they run his life (I can give you examples).
I wonder if I should end it now or wait longer. It feels like a bit too much to say the least
