When a woman chooses to be with a man and she knows he’s an absent father, that says so much about her. When a man has a child and he isn’t actively involved in his/her life, it’s a huge red flag. One you can’t avoid.
It is not a compliment when a man chooses you over his child. You shouldn’t feel blessed with his love. You shouldn’t claim to be fine that he’s a father, and do nothing. You shouldn’t give him food, a place to live or even attention. Give him what he gives to his child, nothing.
If he is willing and able to walk away from his own flesh and blood, what does that make you?
