Am I wrong for not wanting to meet my dad's girlfriends?

Am I wrong for not wanting to meet my dad's girlfriends? Topic: how to begin a personal statement
May 25, 2019 / By Kit
Question: My parents divorced when I was 11. I am now 18, and am completely content with everything. My dad, since the divorce, has had a constant flow of g/f's; and everytime I am expected to become "buddy buddy" with them. I have no problem in doing this, if my father were to stay with one. The issue I have, is that I end up becoming "attached" to them in a way, and I begin to really feel comfortable with them and then he breaks up with them. The thing is, is that my dad can't commit. He ends up cheating on them after some time, and he's onto the next one. I'm tired of meeting new women, only for them to leave and I never see them again. I find it pointless, and if I'm being honest, really annoying. I'm not sure why this bothers me so much, but it does. My dad is wanting me to meet the new one. I told him that I didn't want to once, but he's asking again and keeps bringing it up in conversation. This time, I didn't directly say no to him, but I was apprehensive. My dad started getting mad at me, and said goodbye quickly while we were on the phone talking. He's not understanding at all of how I feel. I'm afraid to tell him (honestly) how I feel because I know he will get mad at me. My dad has a bad temper, and is so sensitive when it comes to his gf's. I'm sick of the dancing around I have to do with these women, having to impress them and slowly build a relationship with them; only for it to be broken some months later.. Am I being overdramatic about this, or are my feelings justifiable?

Your dad is not respecting you like you deserve to be treated. He is a bad role model for you and it is extremely wrong for him to have a constant flow of women he is just cycling because he has issues. When a woman comes into his life, it should be none of your business unless he is extremely serious about her and plans to marry her. Then the woman should ask your permission if it were okay with you if she could be with your dad. Your dad is not a good father figure, and it's sad because you are the kind of daughter parents dream of having. My mom was like your dad, a constant flow of men, and I was disgusted by her, because she did not care that I had a problem with it. It's sad how some parents can be so selfish, and put their insignificant relationships before their own children, and their children's feelings.

You were expecting that everything in your relationship would be rainbows and kittens, eh? Well it's not. You've heard of fair weather friends... don't be a fair weather boyfriend. Be there for her as much as you can stand it. Everyone will understand if you take breaks though, you don't have to be a martyr or a saint. But be there for her, that's what relationships are really about, trusting someone to be there, even in the tough times. Play a game on your phone, do something productive while she's working, give her backrubs, bring her drinks and snacks... and take a few breaks once in a while. Go out with her brother for an hour or two, he sounds like a nice guy.

Tell him when he has been dating her for 6 months, you will know he is serious about her and then you will be happy to meet her. Stand firm on the 6 month rule. If he tries to guilt you or gets angry, just nicely say "Sorry, Dad. But I've become friends with many of the women you dated and when it fell apart, so did those friendships. Six months, Dad. Six months. Six months."

No, as human beings we get attached to others. You need to tell your dad that you can't do this anymore, and that you don't want to meet his girlfriends unless he's finally found someone he feels special with.

Yes, giving her number out to a guy was wrong.... ...but then so is posting girlfriend questions in the Marriage & Divorce subcategory...
