Father daughter relationships and dating
They were serious for about six months but broke up while my mom was still pregnant with me. I think my mom’s psychological problems meant the relationship never really worked out.
She has bipolar disorder and some other mental health issues.
They just weren’t happy and didn’t really keep in contact after I was born. When she’s manic it’s hard to know what she’s going to say. My abandonment issues really hit when I was a teenager.
After I was born she had a nervous breakdown and couldn’t take care of me, so I lived with her grandparents until I was about 2. My mom and my stepfather took a break because they were fighting so much and I cried the entire time he was gone. Near the end of the time my parents had joint custody of me I had a stepdad.
She was working in Syrian refugee camps and delivering Kurd babies in northern Iraq during the 2014 elections.
"While I was in Nashville trying to get things going with music, Hannah was providing medical care to Hondurans during the 2009 coup.
Growing up, I had a great relationship with both my parents.
They both taught me so much and influenced my life for the better.
Dads can set the bar high by taking their daughters on dates when they are little girls and pre-teens.
When a dad opens the doors for his daughter, engages her in good conversation, and treats her with respect, then she will naturally expect that from anyone who wants to date her.
