My boyfriend is 21 and I'm 19, we've only been dating for 2 weeks. Last night he told me he has a 4 year old son. He said he didn't tell me because he was scared of how I'd react. I stopped talking to him for the night and cried. My question is, why did I cry? Why am I so upset? I can't pinpoint the emotions I'm feeling and why I'm sad. I guess it's not as huge a deal as it seemed when he told me. What would you do in my situation? I feel like he waited until I really liked him and felt attached.

You're disappointed, which I understand. But two weeks really isn't that long, and I can kind of understand why he would wait to tell you, especially if he's told other women in the past and they reacted negatively and took off on him. If he was waiting until you feel for him, then he would have waited much longer than two weeks.0

Because a kid is a huge responsibility and you're only 19. You cannot handle it.
It was a normal reaction on your part.0
