My daughter has been dating her boyfriend for two years and I'm now to the point of every time I hear or see him it makes me sick.
I thought that she would get tired of all his crap, but she continues to put with it. I believe he is a manipulator and tries to control every thing. He speaks so low that only she can hear when they are in a room with us.
I always thought she was an intelligient girl, but lately I'm beginning to believe she is just stupid. He puts on this big front of what a great guy he is, but we see him for the turd that he is and I'm ready for her to dump him.
Just today, I was on the phone with a client who was sharing the same experience with me: “ It wasn’t until she showed me one really GOOD email from a guy that she started to get it. But look at the emails you write back to the boring men.
He asked her a silly question and started grilling her with more and more trivia questions, teasing her about what she might win if she got all the questions right. “It made me funny in response to him,” she replied. They’re just as boring as the ones that you received.
She played along and pushed right back and they’ve already got a first date lined up. “He was so lively and engaging that I sort of had no choice but to come back with something equally witty and creative.” “So by him writing something playful and interesting to you, he actually brought out a more playful and interesting side of you? Wouldn’t it stand to reason that if you took the time to write something interesting and creative back to these guys, you might discover that they actually have a personality?
I think the jerk is trying to alienate her from us.
I have cried and cried over this more times than you can imagine. She is distant with us and does not seem like my daughter anymore.
At times, the weight of all of this crap is almost more than I can bear.I try not to say anything negative about him to her anymore cause all it does is cause fights, but it sure is hard to be nice and pleasant to someone when you want to pinch their head off. Is your daughter still with the same guy and has your relationship improved with her yet? Just kicked him out yesterday and she's blaming us and is threatening to move out permanently. I seem to run into this a lot and haven’t seen this addressed.In my first email, I usually ask a few questions and figure the female will answer them, which they usually do, but then they don’t ask anything of me but still seem interested.I may email again, saying, “If you want to know anything just ask”, etc. It’s that you probably haven’t given her a compelling reason to be. “So if a man can make you into a more engaging person by writing a witty first email, wouldn’t it make sense that you could turn a man into a more engaging person by doing the same?but I still get no questions in return to start a conversation. If you want to know why your email correspondence online is generally flat and falls apart after a few emails, you have to look in the mirror and take responsibility for your part in it. ” “Yes, but it’s a lot easier when he says something and I can respond to him.” “I agree.
