I have been dating the same guy for almost 5 years. I have a 10 year old daughter - her father isn't in the picture much, and it has caused her to have a lot of confusion over the years, and also causes her to have trust issues with guys. My boyfriend and I are ready to move on to the next step of our relationship - marriage. However, the situation with my daughter is so bad, he is putting on the brakes. We have given her so much time to adapt, and trust him. He does everything in the world he can for her, gives her more attention than anyone I know, and tries to make her feel comfortable and like him. But - it's a constant let down. She treats me so poorly. She doesn't listen to him, I have to threaten her to almost make her talk to him, she is rude to him, gives him dirty looks, acts like she hates him, and then when my brother-in-law is around (she adores him) she tries to make my boyfriend jealous by showing him so much affection and attention. It hurts my bf so bad, and it hurts me knowing that it hurts his feelings. I don't know what to do anymore. I have tried talking to her about things, she says that she likes him a lot - but her actions (most of the time) don't show that. I've tried threatening her with things, I've tried ignoring it, etc. I don't know what to do anymore. She even hates her father and half the time will say things to my boyfriend about him just to hurt him. It's like she intentionally does it! I don't understand, and I don't know where to turn anymore. anyone have suggestions or ever been in a similar situation? Please help!!!!!:confused:
