My daughter is about to turn 18 she’s only had one other boyfriend and now she’s been dating this kid for six months. She let him have her virginity literally on the first date which was shocking for me Because she was so against it before that. So far the kid seems nice enough but I am very concerned at the amount of attachment that my daughter has with him. Show literally cries multiple times and every day if she doesn’t get to see him that day. He works full-time and she goes to school and works so they see each other about three days a week sometimes four and she just feels like it’s not enough it’s like she Hasssssto be in his presence every minute of the day. Then if he leaves her messages on “read” and Snapchat she or takes too long to reply . She starts questioning if he’s talking to somebody else or if he doesn’t want to talk to her. She has low Self-esteem, I don’t know where she gets that from, her dad and I are divorced and she lives with her dad during the week (Because she wants to be in that school) and me meet during the weekends. We are extremely close she’s not very close with her father. We have a very open relationship and she tells me everything but I am very concerned at the amount of distress she has. Every little thing that he does or doesn’t do. It’s hard to put into words the amount of extreme. I’m trying to convey in a message but it’s very extreme And I don’t know what to do. Is there anything I can do or say to help her get out of the codependency she seems to have with this kid and to maybe love herself some more and do more things for herself! I’m so sad for her.
