My DD has a new guy in her life - and that's good in that the abusive ex-BF is unequivocally out. Big sigh of relief there! New BF seems friendly, kind and hard-working.
My new dilemma is this: DD has confided in me some things that new BF needs to change about himself to be a better partner. What is my role here? Listen and shut my mouth? What about when she asks my opinion? I know she is carefully "reading" my facial expression and non-verbals, and it's unfortunately too easy for me to speak up, even if it's just in a generic way about relationships, or examples of situations that I know of that are similar to what she is facing.
True confession: There are some things that I wish she hadn't shared with me and I worry that more is coming as the two of us spend more time together next month. Does anyone have any experience in dealing with an AC sharing too much information?
She has a tendency to move quickly in relationships, and I worry that she will be married within a year, with children soon to follow. They've only been a couple for a few months and already she is living with him and his roommates. I've spoken up about that - she claims she had to get out of a bad roommate situation (it WAS awful) and there is no one else to live with. But I'm sure this is her number one preference anyway.
Any opinions are greatly appreciated.
