I've been distant of late because I met someone last month.
Yeah, Free, Music and xxxs -
I agree with Music on this one.
The dad probably had to step up the game because the mom is absent. I dont blame him in a way.. The kid is probably not doing well. Divorce I heard is harder when a teenager.. My son was a baby when me and1st.H divorced which kind of made it easier. He had no reference to anything about separating from his parents.
This girl probably will have abandonement issues because her mom is not around and her dad is
IF a kid is going from taking all AP to failing I would say there is definitely an emotional component there--probably a combination of the divorce, dad leaving home and her being scared about what is going to happen after graduation.
Imo this is super Dad to the rescue; giving the attention DD needs to graduate.
Yes! It is! She went from 5 AP classes, supposedly, to flunking out and not even being able to graduate unless Dad steps in and takes a strong hand. Mom is out gambling and shopping all the time, so apparently DD is left to fend for herself when Dad's not there.
Is this not the DD that is having school problems like flunking out?
No I think it's pretty unusual for an 18 yr old to want to spend all her weekends w/ dad.
Boy this is a tough one. unavailable men.. I am not sure but maybe its about balance. I think if a guy has no hobbies or interests or friends he might be unavailable.. I mean if he just dotes on himself all the time and doesnt have anything to do with other things he might be unavailable. But that is a guy who has been alone a long time but just focuses on himself and cant relate to the outside world..
of course there is the obvious the newly sep. or
Good point, Music. Of course, the first week the older daughter wasn't in town yet and he wasn't living in the family home and he was all about me/us.
Well I think the big clue that he was emotionally unavailable for a relationship was that he was not done emotionally w/ his divorce.
