Stacy and Brad have been together for a year. He moved in with us as soon as they started dating. But my daughter, who had depression and severe anxiety, is actually happy and doing amazingly well right now. You may have felt that having him in your home was safer than her perhaps running away and living with him. And you would have been right.
If you believe this, then it unfortunately ties both you and your daughter to him. Your daughter might be maturing into a more emotionally stable state. At 18, her brain is still developing. She should seek a professional diagnosis and therapy, even though she is feeling well right now. You should ask her why she thinks she is feeling better lately. What are the most positive aspects of her life right now?

This article was published to the Internet several years ago and was originally written to help identify “Losers” in relationships. The e-mail feedback I have received on the article has been tremendous. It’s clear the article is a way of identifying not only “losers” but controlling, abusive, and manipulating individuals. It’s also obvious these warning signs are not only found in dating relationships – but in our spouse, our parents, our friends, and our relatives.
There are more victims in the environment of the Loser than his or her partner. The loved ones want to understand the situation and ask for recommendations and guidance.

Have a question? Email her at dear. My year-old daughter has never been married but has had relationships with men and women. My daughter is having a good time but knows that the relationship is going nowhere. I feel she is not thinking clearly and is not valuing herself. One of the hardest aspects of being a parent is recognizing that your children are their own people, and that no matter how differently you see things—or how much you want to protect them—they get to make life choices of their own.
Dear Amy: I am the proud mom of two young adults, ages 25 and I do not like or approve of my year-old daughter’s boyfriend! He just does not “belong” in our family! He is 25 years old and does not have a paying job.
In most states she can just marry the loser, andthen things are much worse. An acquaintance of ours had the same problem. Her daughter had dated an inappropriate guy for five or six years – thru her freshman year. Mid-way thru her sophomore year he started getting jealous of her college activities and new friends. He finally started down the “it’s me or them” road and she chose “them”.
Your friend should absolutely try to get the girl to make new college friwnds and get involved in campus activities, with no aspersions cast on him. We all know they will grow apart, so if the parents can just keep nudging her toward growth and delay marriage, hopefully the growth spurt will happen before she is too committed. Giving ultamatums will only make it worse. You don’t say that he’s a dangerous person – just that her parents think she could do better.
