She is hurt, upset, feels like a failure, etc. My W and I can only relate what we know from our dating days and the people who did the same to us. We can only relate how we have seen her relationship die on the vine. And for my W and I....it is for the better. Long story. Yet, our daughter will jump right back in the saddle if offered because she feels she will not do any better.....YET....she has others who have approached her for dates, etc. In hindsight my W and I are glad he pulled the plug because our daughter would not not. She is a miserable angry person as a result of this relationship but refused to see it.



Anyway, like I said, they can take or leave your advise but they will do what they want to do anyway. Learning from their mistakes as it were.


Sucks to have to watch. Heck my W couldn't watch any of our kids get a bruise or scratch. Our oldest boys are in college but girls are younger. Fun times ahead for sure

The only saving grace is a majority of us have been through it before. We offer advice for what we know from our experience. We only hope it sinks in. As I get older I find myself saying, "My parents were right after all."
