My Daughter Is Slipping Away!
My daughter is 21. She lives in the other end of the state attending college. She started dating someone 1 1/2 years ago. Little by little she began to change. We are a very close family. She told me his family and him do not get along. They dropped him off for college and never went back to visit, he was at that time a junior. In the past year she has lost interest in taking care of her self. She was always very conscientious about her clothes, make up, hair, now she looks like she is just thrown together. She is 5'2" and maybe 108 lb. she said she's worried she is getting fat. My husband and I went to visit her last week and she look pale, withdrawn and sickly. When she was home for Christmas and her boyfriend came to visit, her sister her him say to her she had to drink another cup of coffee because she had to stay up with him until he went to bed. We feel by other things that has happened he is malipulative and controlling. My daughter believed in abstinence before marriage. We found out in March that she has contracted the HPV virus from him. We are devasated by this relationship. He is smug when he has been around us. He interrupts her when she talks. He is always late when we have plans. We fear she may never be able to break away from him. We need help and prayers.
