Hi everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving!five

Throughout the year I have known my fiance, he talked about fancy dresses.

He loves that his daughter will only wear fancy dresses.

I am guessing that you aren't that interested in buying clothes for yourself?

Although it is possible your DF may go on and on more than necesary, I think the story you told is actually kind of cute.

Hi K---

Observation:

This is second post re: concerns re: SO's relationship with D..................

This makes me think that, regardless of "right" or "wrong" re: how he handles things with D-----it IS how he does this.......*and* this is PROBABLY always going to be an issue for you................and, eh ....(sad face) 5 yo is a LONG time til she's grown....................................

I guess I'm just seeing it as a "red flag" if you're looking at this relationship in terms of "do I want to be marrying this guy or not?".........................
.............I know I"m somewhat of a pessimist----but I dont think the situation with D will change enough that you wont become frustrated with it many many more times over the years..........

Just a thought to keep in the back of your head......

When I was reading the OP, I was thinking the exact same as laurena!!

it 'seems' the the issue is the fiance's relationship with his dd. And you need to realize....if you marry this man, you are marrying his dd, too.
