The magic word

Day one 2009.

I came home this morning around 1am with a friend, it was the first time she was staying over. She cuddled up to me in bed pretty quickly and we were off to sleep. In the morning we went to her church to start the year off right, it was my first time back in a roman catholic church since prep school.

While she was at my place she was all over me. 2009 was going well so far, a potential girlfriend in my lap telling me all the dirty things she wanted to do with me. What magic words could possibly stop anything happening between us? The phone rang a bit but I didn't answer. I returned the calls after she left and heard the last thing I expected "I'm pregnant".

She forgot her heels when she left, I should see her tomorrow. How do I tell her?

Whoa Adrian! What a complicated way to start 2009. No "easy" button for this one.

Lawd have mercy. Mi jus drop in to wish you happy new year...

Geez...

Well, honesty is always important. I've had a dude leave me to be with his pregnant ex, because he wanted to do the right thing. Needless to say, it didn't work out and by then I didn't want him.

If you like New Years Chick, let her know. Don't shirk your responsibilities and still be there for Pregnant Chick, but let her know.

She can decide whether she's ready to handle that kinda baggage.

Good luck, jed.

You did the right thing even though the outcome wasn't what you thought it would be.....In telling her you gave her a choice as to whether she should deal or not and I guess she made her choice....She'll be upset with you for a long time but she'll grudgingly respect you for doing the right thing.Happy New Year anyway!

Damn, sorry to hear that New Year's Chick is a wrap. I agree with Rockaway Girl. You did the right thing.

You're a good guy, and good dudes always win...even if it doesn't feel that way.

Adrian... Not trying to diss, but consider this. It don't sound from what I have read like you and the mother-to-be of the child was in anything too deep. You sure she was seeing you exclusively? You sure is your yute?
I remember reading that nuff nuff Jamaican women trying to take away work from tailors, you know, giving men a proper jacket!
Of course, if you are sure is yours...

You did right telling New Year's Eve girl still.
