    Daddy'S Girl

    I have always sort out the company of older men. When I was 16, I secretly dated a 26 yr old. This pattern continued until I met my husband who is 20 yrs older than me. I fantasise that he is my "daddy" when we make love.

    I want to kill my her, she is vile, condescending and cruel. I don't speak to her, she is cold and manipulative, she plays the victim role to elicit sympathy from my father. I can almost see her lips curl into a smile when he repriminds me. I hate her.
