I am 18 years old and I have a 6 month old child. Recently, rumors of my ex-girlfriend cheating on me reached my ears. By the time I heard, we had been broken up for nearly three months. Rumors of the child not being mine have also gotten back to me. I am taking one of those maternity (not a misprint...) tests in May, and if the results come out negative, the child might not be mine. How should I talk to my ex if the child isn't mine? I'm worried about confronting her.
WORRIED IN MONTANA
Here's a little bit more news to reach your ears. You're a fucking moron. You're 18, too young to be having sex in the first place, especially if you can't tell the difference between the words 'maternity' and 'paternity'. From what you've told me, the child most probably isn't yours anyway and you already suspected that because if you didn't you wouldn't be taking 'one of those maternity tests' to begin with. The kid is most probably the school football team's quaterback because you're just a pussy and chicks dig that kind of guy in the first place. Let's face it. You're probably one of those "Nice Guys" and women don't really want one of those. They want the big, stupid musclebound jocks. Nice guys always finish last. Here's my advice. Take the test to see if the brat is yours, and while you're at the doctor's office, have him sterilize you too, because someone as stupid as you shouldn't be breeding in the first place. As for talking to your ex about it, I wouldn't. Especially if the kid isn't yours, and it probably isn't.
