    Just her chameleon your post made me realise the possible crux of my annoyance about this.... the fact he knows I'm a single mum, my child is still young and wakes at the crack of dawn (he knows this little fact too), AND it's school holidays o no break for me. I have put off dating men for years because they never seem to get how hard it is to raise a child alone, even when they are themselves single parents. They don't get it. 10pm visits might be all well and good for them but I'm bloody buggered by then! Actually I'd normally already be in bed.

    We're all night owls here with the exception of partner working the next dsy (but he only works 3 days a week) so that wouldn't bother us but if it bothers you you need to be firm and tell him.

    Before I met dp I had a "friend" who would text me asking to come over etc but I was ok with it. But we had known each other for quite a while etc and we didn't want anything bar an "adult" friendship at that point in our lives

    To me it seems he is trying for a booty calls hence the late texts while your child is alseep. That's my thoughts on it. Your response is totally valid

    Totally what I thought too. OP, I'd send him a text saying if he wants to come over, it needs to be before 8pm (or whatever time you are comfortable with) because you usually go to bed early and dropping by after 10 is just too late for you.

    Haha! The thought had crossed my mind...

    But I think he's just trying to be friendly and nice mostly.... one time he bought me a rice paper roll, another time he turned up with some neurofen because I'd said I had a headache.... he brought me empty egg cartons for my eggs....

    Anyway, prettt sure he knows 10.15 is just too late to be rocking by now! 😆

    I was thinking at least he sent a text first, what's the problem?

    But then I read this ^^ standing on your porch is a bit creepy imo!

    Hopefully he knows now not to do it again.

    Oh and bringing you nurofen and a rice roll sounds like he likes you

    He likes you. I think it's cute he brings you things and he's pretty friendly. Just tell him when it's too late for him to drop over, I'm sure he'll understand.

    Better he text than just knock on your door.

    If it happens again you need to point it out to him that anything after xyz time is not good for you. Sometimes people dont see things from the same angle as you and its better to just say it straight

    I don't like things done last minute it sounds like he is not considerate at 10pm.

    With a young kid at home I would say 7pm is late.

    Ask for a few days notice and then you can have a coffee and or drink together scheduled.

    Thank you everyone. Good to be validated! I haven't heard from him since so I guess he's either sulking or just isn't interested in me anymore. Hooefully next time he meets someone he asks them out for a coffee before turning up on their doorstep at 10 at night! :O
