9yo girlfriend's daughter hates me
I have been with K for 6-mos and we were on our way somewhere significant in our relationship. Her daughter A and I got along great, I helped her with her homework, helped her with her piano lessons, and we just had fun laughing and getting along. She is a brilliant kid and her mom K is unlike any woman I've ever met.
The daughter saw her mom kiss me and she flipped out. She began having serious behavior issues about "the divorce". Her dad is pretty much a deadbeat troublemaker. K has a hard time talking to her daughter about things. The daughter doesn't want to have anything to do with me and K has retreated completely to "focus on A". Our relationship has pretty much evolved to nothing. I told K I would wait for her. I feel a calling of sorts because this little girl is so remarkable and needs a strong male role model in her life. My daughter is a college athlete and I have a tremendous relationship with her...A deserves the same. I've coached girls sports for 8 years and several of my kids are now playing in college. A deserves all the goodness in the world and I feel like I am in her life for a time like this. I just don't know what to do. I feel sometimes like walking away but I just can't.
