    Hi I really need some advice

    I’ve met someone and waited until I feel he is ‘here to Stay before I can introduce him to my girls – they are 12 and 16

    It hasn’t gone well to date. My 12 year old is polite but I can see she is uncomfortable. My 16 year old refuses to be in the same room with him. I’ve tried to speak with her – she said just needs time – we have tried to invite her to to public events like safari and bowling but she is just not interested.

    Any advice please

    I’m by no means an expert on this but it’s probably one or a combination of:

    Suspicion about the circumstances of the separation from her Dad.

    Loyalty to him.

    Hoping her family will be reunited/grieving for same.

    Don’t expect her to tell you in my experience but I’d talk to her as much as possible, starting with random unrelated subjects and listen for clues as the conversations develop.
