Am I being supporting or sacrificial? Taking things back a step

My boyfriend (just turned 30, and I'm 24) of nearly 7 months is very recently divorced (it was finalized 4 months ago and they have been separated for 9). He's the most open and communicative person I've ever met and keeps me as much in the loop as I need to be about where he's at and how he's feeling regarding his loss (but also keeps some details to himself that I probably don't really need to know about.) Our relationship started out very mutual and enthusiastic, and mostly still is but he's taking a few steps back to analyze himself and it's triggering my relationship anxiety. I don't know whether to trust my gut or quiet the fear. [more inside]

Brady Bunch to be, please help make everyone happy.

Can you please recommend any books that might help on when/how to introduce new boyfriend/girlfriend to kids when divorced? Do you have any advice based on your experience; include anything you would do different in hindsight? I know all kids and circumstances are different but there has to be a general outline that produces happier outcomes for kids involved. More info inside. [more inside]

Dating a dad, feeling marginalized

I'm dating a divorced dad. I realize his kid is always and rightfully going to be his top priority, but is he going too far? I feel like he's spoiling her and creating a situation in which I will get excluded in the same way his ex-wife was excluded. [more inside]

No, seriously, hope me.

I'm disillusioned, and I hate it. I'm not, by nature, a cynical person but I think I'm turning into one. At least where matter of the heart are concerned. [more inside]
