She Was Tired of Being Put Second After Her Dad’s Irritating New Girlfriend, so She Told His Family How Neglectful He Really Was

A 19-year-old woman recently came to a hard realization about her relationship with her father. She accepted the fact that he was never going to change. Here’s what she had to say.

The girl started by saying that her father never really raised her like a parent should. Her parents had her at a young age. Her father’s family didn’t even know she existed until she was 3 years old.

Growing up, her father continued to be absent from her life. He would often cancel plans they had together so that he could go on dates with women. It got so bad that the original poster cut off contact with him when she was just nine years old.

Eventually, she reached back out to her father when she turned 13. “He then told me he had a girlfriend,” said the woman. “I was happy for him.”

Around the time of the pandemic, she moved back in with her father and his girlfriend. It was supposed to have been a happy time, reuniting with her father she hadn’t heard from in years. But it only confirmed the worst of what she remembered about him.

“It was then I realized I wasn’t really prioritized despite being his daughter,” she said. When it was her father’s girlfriend’s birthday, he pulled out all the stops, getting her expensive gifts and treating her to a spa day. When it was the girl’s birthday and she wanted to go to her favorite mall, he took her to a different one and let her buy a shirt. Meanwhile, he let his girlfriend get multiple pieces of clothing on the same trip.

On top of this, the woman said that her father’s girlfriend was not the most mature individual, despite being in her early 30s. “She always thinks she’s the best and that people copy her when, in reality, she and everyone else are just following the latest trends,” she said. But she would soon learn that her father’s girlfriend was here to stay.

Her father and his girlfriend finally tied the knot. At the wedding, his family asked the original poster some questions about why she seemed so distant from her father and why she wouldn’t call his new wife her stepmom. She decided not to cover for him anymore.

She told them their entire history and how he never put his own child as a priority. “Most have been understanding,” she said. “But a few family members did say that I am being a little harsh and should be happy for him, so now I’m second-guessing myself.”

She asked the Internet for advice

Ultimately, all she really wanted was a father who showed he cared for her. She never went without the bare necessities, but she also never really felt that he loved her. She asked for the Internet’s opinions on their dynamic and if she was being too hard on him.

Commenters fully supported the woman speaking her truth. “They asked you, and you answered honestly,” said one. “It’s not like you made a speech and announced it at the wedding.” Another added, “He didn’t respect you enough to meet a child’s basic emotional needs. Why should you treat him with the respect he never showed you?”
