Today, my boyfriend told me how jealous he gets when I "hang out" with Dylan. Dylan is the 5-year-old boy whom I babysit every day. My boyfriend wants me to stop, because apparently Dylan cockblocks him. FML

I can't believe there are guys like OP's bf. If I was him I'd be the one taking Dylan to Playland or Legoland or wherever. There are few things better in life than being able to be a kid, with a kid.

Well dang. I looked back at my comment and realized it didn't sound the way I wanted it to be, and I went to change a few words around to make it sound better, I found out apparently passed the time limit for editing.

Anyways, what I meant was that I was implying that OP's boyfriend is acting like a child and that she should take HIM to playland. Sounds a bit stupid now that I think about it, but it sounded funny in my head! Lol

And to OP! If I was you I would tell the boyfriend to either grow up or pull up his big boy pants and leave.

I'll second that comment. Those who are able to be a kid with a kid are the ones who will never grow old and will continue to have fun as we pack on the years. Being able to relate to a child or teen on their level is a gift. I'll never have to worry about a generation gap and that's what makes me successful in my line of work.

Man, I used to sometimes look after the neighbour's kid after school (he's 13 now, so not anymore). It was a blast pulling out my old bin of Lego and getting down on the floor and watching cartoons and playing. I can't have kids of my own, so I live vicariously through other people's kids. I don't get OPs boyfriend. You can introduce these kids to all these things you loved as a kid that they know nothing about but is cool again.

I kind of understand his reasoning. Maybe he means it like she's spending time with Dylan when she could be spending time with him, hence the cock-block

Tell your boyfriend to stop being so ridiculous. If he's threatened by a little kid then it's likely he'll be unreasonable about pretty much any social interaction with a male. Hope he comes to his senses!

Alright guys I'm going to bite the bullet and say that maybe OP is manipulating her boyfriends words (she is human we all do it) and her boyfriend is just mad because he doesn't spend that much time with her, hence the "everyday" babysitting.

94, that is a possibility, but its her job. If he is upset that she works too much then that is also a big issue. If she's babysitting every day, chances are OP is young, he shouldn't be interfering with her work. She still will need to figure out if he is worth possibly losing her job if she asks to cut back. Personally I would be ticked off if my kid backed out of her responsibilities like that for a boy!

Do you remember to keep your boyfriend occupied with stimulating experiences while you are gone? I can recommend toys where you can put his lunch, for mental stimulation, or a colour book, if he is more into that kind of tasks.

Your boyfriend has some serious self esteem issues if he feels "one upped" by a 5 year old. I suggest you tell him to repeat what he said to himself and man the F up.
