Best uncle

By Sean Martin - 06/02/2020 05:00

Today, I realized that the last 3 months, I've been taking care of my girlfriends 1 year old kid. The other night, she told me that I was a good uncle to him. FML

Women years ago used to tell their kids that their new boyfriend was “Uncle John” . If you’ve only been together 3 months, maybe she just doesn’t want to build the kid’s hope up? Just ask her about it!

So...? You aren‘t the biological father, therefore no need for her to tell you, you are "a great dad". I suppose that's why you're hurt...?

As long as your name isn’t "Ben"...

You must be a pretty terrible babysitter! It took you three months to figure out that's your job?

Your girlfriend told you that you never will be the (step-)father of her child, only the provider for both of them. You should think long and hard what this relationship is worth to you.

She said no such thing. She indicated that it's waaaaay too early to be anything more than an honorary uncle. And she's right.

I think the GF's already "had the long and the hard." That's how she got pregnant in the first place.... :-D

I can't tell if she doesn't consider you two are in a relationship, or if she meant that literally. Do you have a brother by any chance? If so, time for a little talk.

Uhhh I don’t really remember a wide majority of people accidentally creating incest HOWEVER this child is 1, there’s no way to give or take away the child’s hope as the child hasn’t a single clue what family relationships are and would naturally make assumptions based on a 1 year olds mind.

have you never heard of people stepping up and raising the child even if its not their blood? its this thing called being mature, you should check er out

Are you sure she's your girlfriend, OP?

I call my stepmother "Auntie". Doesn't mean I don't see her as my step-mother, but in my culture there's no word for stepmom and obviously I'm not going to call her mom. That's what I call my actual mom. Auntie is the next best thing and most respectful.

What were you expecting? To be "Dad" after three months? No way.
