This probably seems like a stupid question, I know, but this is the first relationship I've had since I left my ex-husband 4 years ago, and I don't know what to do.
I love my boyfriend, and my boyfriend loves me. Unfortunately, he is completely indifferent to the kids. We have been going out for a little over 5 months. He has spent more time with the kids over the last month give or take, but before that was an hour or two once or twice every few weeks at most. Is the indifference at this stage something to worry about? He has told me several times that he has an abnormal level of indifference in many areas; and since I know a lot of people with mental/emotional issues I've been trying to let things progress slowly and smoothly. Some of my friends don't think he's moving fast enough emotion-wise, so they are flipping out and are telling me to leave him.
I'm not sure what to do. When he's around the kids, he engages them and makes an effort to play with them and talk to them. He just doesn't feel anything towards them. Is this something I should worry about; or something I should just give time to see where things go?
