Dating feelings widower


Hey Meredith, More than a year ago I began dating a recent widower.

He went on this trip last summer and was miserable feeling like the 13th wheel all the time.

So, after what will be a year and a half of dating, am I wrong to feel left out on this trip?

We've spent holidays together with both sets of kids. I know all of the friends going and have bent over backwards to befriend them (still way outside of that loop).

I don't want to sound whiny, but I rarely ever have time without my kids in tow (maybe two weeks total a year, usually in one-night increments).

It seems to me like serendipity that I would be able to go ... I accept the possibility that his kids are not comfortable, in which case, I would understand completely, but he says they like me and are OK with our relationship.

I find myself wondering if I am staying with him merely because it's fun to get out once in a while and make grilled cheese.
