Would you stay?

This is pretty long but i don't have anyone else to turn to. I have a 6 month old son. His father isn't in the picture due to being in prison. I recently started dating this man 3 months ago. I'm 19, he's 21. I guess I just need to know if I should stay with him or not? I know that if I'm questioning it then I know what I need to do...but he's said he wants to step up for my son since we started dating. I moved in with him after a couple weeks of dating but I've known him for over 7 years. Recently he's been so snappy with me over the smallest things. I cook, clean, take care of our 3 dogs and cats, laundry, picking up his stuff, taking out trash, literally everything on top of taking care of my son. He had a job for a little over a month and then quit because he had an ingrown fingernail. He's been out of work for a month now and doesn't do anything around the house. We've been struggling and going without things and I just found out he has a secret account with money in it he's been harboring. My son needed formula so I picked up a construction job since he kept telling me we didn't have any money. I hadn't gotten paid yet so my mom offered offered pick me up and get some for my son, and as soon as I told my boyfriend that he offered to buy him some. But he knew he's been needing some. That was one red flag for me. We just got a puppy when he started his new job a week ago, the puppy hasn't had his shots yet so can't be potty trained outside yet, well the puppy went to do his business on the floor and my boyfriend was yelling at him saying "no not there" and I asked him "well where else is he supposed to go?" And he screamed at me and said "well not on the fĂ—Ă—king vent!"I didn't know the puppy was trying to do that there, but he had screamed and cussed that at me in front of my son. After weeks of him snapping at me and me holding my tongue, I raised my voice at him for the first time and told him to never talk to me like thay again in front of my son. I said that and he ran to the bathroom and started throwing up loudly. I snuck to the bathroom and peeked at him without him seeing me and saw he was sticking his finger down his throat and making himself throw up on purpose, like he was doing it for attention ?? Or to make me feel sorry for him that he was throwing up? Because usually I run to him when he's sick or needs something but I snuck and seen him doing that. He'll hold my son for 10 minutes and get pissy that he won't stop crying. Gets an attitude if I ask him to help around the house even though he's been without a job for over a month. Another thing that's been heavily on my mind... me, my son, and boyfriend will be in our living room and my son will need a diaper change, usually my boyfriends on his phone or watching TV, and I'll get up to go in the other room to change my son, well he just started following me when I change him. As I'm changing him he just watches me and my son and stares at his privates as I'm changing him...I've started asking him to leave the room or asking him for a "favor" just so he'll get out for a few minutes. I've noticed he rushes to do the "favor" and runs back in the room to watch me finish changing him. As soon as I'm done, he leaves the room. Doesn't offer to help, just stares. Is this normal? Do your boyfriends/baby daddies do this? I've never had a male figure in my life so I don't know what's normal or not..but something is telling me somethings not right. Would you leave? Since I've noticed him doing this I haven't been attracted to him at all and he makes me sick..I drank a couple nights ago and apparently we were getting intimate, I told him not to touch my tummy because I'm self conscious and he said "I don't care if you're fat" I left the house walking and crying. (My son was with my mom) I just needed to vent or need advice on what to do..please no negative comments. I'm already a manic depressant with severe anxiety. I just need help/advice. Would you stay? Am I overthinking? Please help a mama out.

I would leave. Him talking like that to you is not okay in the first place as well as acting like he doesn’t have money but with how he acts when your changing you son? Hell no, that is not normal & very weird. Listen to your gut when it tells you something is wrong.

I train dogs and “no shots” is NOT an excuse. If you can’t afford formula, getting a dog wasn’t bright.

Get out and fast. Wait til he’s not there and get a few people over to collect everything and leave. If you have power etc in you’re name, get it cut off and ring the landlord and take you’re name off the lease. Leave and never look back

You have to learn to trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, most likely it is not. As a mom your priority should be your son, which it sounds like it is but it doesn’t seem that he shares the same idea as you. The whole thing about the formula raised a big flag in my mind. I would leave him.

OMG get out of there. The end.

Oh hell girl, get away from as soon as you can! Red flags all over the place. You don’t need another child playing mind games, kick him out!

You need to get out now. If this is how he behaves after just a few months, you’re in for a life of misery.
You’re teaching your son that this is acceptable behaviour. What would you advise him in future years, or your best friend etc?
You deserve a good life , good luck.

PLEASE LEAVE NOW!! Protect your child. That’s every marker for abuse. TRUST ME! I’ve been there. I didn’t see it until 8 months and I couldn’t get out so I joined the army. I found out I was pregnant the week before my meps testing. Found out a while later, he messed with my birth control and condom. I was stuck. It took me another 10 years to leave for the finale time. It starts this way. Super quick almost I love you connection immediately. Their wonderful and charming and when your hooked, BAM it’s a whole different person. By then the cycle of abuse has already started. And it only get worse. NONE of this behavior is acceptable! But especially the diaper changing. That ALONE is enough to get your child out. I was your exact age when mine began. I’m 33 now and I’m still recovering and mentally Ill from the psychological abuse. If you need someone to talk to my dms are open. Good luck dear. You deserve better.

Major red flag sweetie!! When they SHOW you who they are, BELIEVE them!! He won’t change & that’s not a good environment for your son. As a single mother of 3 I KNOW how hard & scary it can be being so young & thinking about raising him alone but it’s better to be a lone & busting your tail for your son than to have him raised with someone who’s NOT teaching him how to love & treat his Mommy!:revolving_hearts:Praying for you! You can do it trust me!! :wink::revolving_hearts:

Red flags!! Keep your kid and your relationship sperate. I don’t understand the need of women to find a dad for their child.

There are sooooo many red flags with this guy. Since you really haven’t been together that long, you must leave. It’s easy to say this to you because you haven’t been with him for that long. You moved on with this dude way too frigging fast. You are so young. You should just stay focused on you and your son, no one else. Be careful who you bring around your son. He doesn’t need people coming in and out of his life. Give yourself time to be a mom. You are growing with your son. There are so many things to learn. Please be cautious with who you bring into your son’s life. Just because you’ve known someone for “7” years doesn’t mean you actually know them. Give yourself time to grow and develop into your own life more. Your son should be your whole world. Men don’t need to be in the picture right now. Good luck!

Leave him asap! He sounds like a pedophile from what you said about your son. You don’t want to chance him harming your child. Also he can’t hold down a job but wants to step up as a father? He don’t help around the house and yells at you in front of your child. He isn’t much of a role model I’d want my own child looking up to. You and your son deserve better.

Watching diapers be changed and actively LOOKING at the babies privates all on its own is 100% enough to leave and never look back. Trust your gut, get out and find a women’s and children’s center if you can’t go back to your moms. 100% do NOT stay with him. Anything else is just bonus :triangular_flag_on_post: :triangular_flag_on_post: :triangular_flag_on_post: red flags and none of it should be ignored.
