Dads n daughters...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi - I'm skitt, I'm new here tonight... I'm wondering what folks think about dads & daughter relationships...
I'm in the process of "finding" my daughter, she is 19 now - the last time I saw her she was 7! We are in contact by letter and sms but have still to meet. I'm looking forward to the future with my daughter in it, but to be honest I'm not sure what my daughter will expect from me - I dont want to let her down in any way. Any thoughts? Anybody? skitt

    it sounds like you already get on fine so there is nothing to worry about there. i absolutely adore my dad, he's nothing but an angel to me. The thing is its nothing that you can outrightly 'do' to acheive this it just comes from being there, being interested in whats happening in my life, helping when there is something wrong. On the less 'deep side' little things are really important like going on shopping expeditions (my dad has great clothes sense!). I think you'll find she'll take an automatic shine to you, its natural, so dont worry. I really hope you'll come back and tell us how it went.
    Good Luck.

    Why haven't you seen her for 12 years? It's a long time to be away, she's getting to know a stranger, and you need to bare that in mind at all times. Don't push anything, let her make all the decisions.

    Without knowing the reasons for your absence - and more importantly, how she feels about the whole situation.

    Hi Skitt,

    The chances are that she's no more certain of what to expect than you are. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> You are still in touch (or did you recently re-establish contact?) via sms and mail, so just continue to be yourself.

    That more than anything else is what she knows and will expect, I think.
