I was honestly going through a similar situation... My parents divorced a year ago and right away my parents got into relationships. My fathers girlfriend lives in another country and almost every weekend he goes to visit her. My mothers boyfriend lives near by but he tries extremely hard to make us like him... The whole situation is overwhelming but I think we have to remember that life isn't going to be like this forever. You can't make yourself like your dad's girlfriend but you can control how you deal with the situation. They may not even last so it's good if you don't create an attachment. Just remember, I know you care for your father, but your his son, not his friend. You can't read his messages or try to be in that part of his love life because it will only cause your pain... Trust me, I once read messages between my mother and her boyfriend and it was extremely uncomfortable! Try not to stress yourself to much, you can only control what you can control. Good luck!

No, I don't think you sound stupid at all. Your sadness and frustration are completely understandable. Your mother is doing the smart thing; your father is making a big mistake by staying with someone who keeps threatening to break up with him. As a general rule, a single parent shouldn't stay with someone who doesn't get along with the kids. That should be a deal-breaker.
