My nieces dad
My niece is 18. She has just been in contact with her bio dad for about a year.
BD and my sis had my niece when they were teenagers. A lot of drama happened on both their sides. BD got into drugs and took off. My sis met future BIL and he raised my niece since she was 1 years old. That has been her dad.
Anywho so niece and BD talk now. Mostly texts and FB. I think they talked a lot more before they actually met and they met over the summer.
I have no issues with the BD. He is actually the brother of one of my closest childhood friends.
However, he likes everything that my niece posts on FB. Like, like, like, like. And he comments 80% of the time with "honey, sweetie, love you, you are so beautiful, love you so much."
My sister said when they first started talking, she read some of their texts and she said it sounded like BF/GF.
I know BD is just trying to make my niece feel special and make up for the lost time and for the past issues. Disney Dad? Guilty Dadf?
But what is up with dads and daughters and the way they talk to each other?
I havent seen my niece post much to her BD or anything like he does.
I feel a little bad but I am tired of seeing all of his likes and all the sweeties and honeys and loves, etc.
My DH has 3 girls and I have seen/heard him say a lot of the same things but not as much as this. Plus it's a little weird since BD hasn't really been in my niece's life.
Okay just a random thought I wanted to share.
