I still have yet to meet any of the children after 13 months of dating. I especially feel that I need to meet his young daughter because she is the reason I get very little time with him on the weekends, and maybe if I met her we could do things together.
I have met his brother, his dad, his nephew, and his best friend once briefly for about 5 minutes each, but other than that, I have never been included in anything with other people in his life.
How can we plan a future if I cannot see how I interact with his kids, family, and friends?
