What should you do if you are dating a man 3 years divorced who is fabulous behind closed doors but unwilling to talk over the phone when his 14-year-old daughter is around and it has been 3 months?
This certainly isn't uncommon. You have to think about his young
daughter as she is caught between her father and mother and hoping
upon hope that they will get back together and obviously you are in
the way. It's not the child's fault and is quite normal. Your
boyfriend has to treat this situation very carefully. He must have
heard of a cell phone and he has every opportunity of talking to
you while he's walking, driving, or even from work, so I'd speak to
him about that one. Try getting him to bring his daughter along on
occasion and do some fun things together. It takes time and
patience. If you can do this perhaps you can win at least her
respect for you and make things a little more pleasant between the
3 of you. Remember, it's not all about you or your boyfriend, but a
fightened and hurt 14 year old who loves both parents. Don't give
up on this man!
