Thank you for the questions, My daughter was enetering tenth grade at the time, and do to a second business in this community, we were debatingmoving but could not find a house. We decided not to move and to wait until she graduated from high school. When we told her she cried(unlike her) and that nightshe wrote my wife a nd i a three page letter telling us why she wanted to move. We were leaving a very small community, which we were an intergral part of. In her eyes she wanted a chance at a bigger schhol and new friends. There were pbly 30 girls in the previous community graduating class. She was finding hersmall circle of friends deminishing with the advent of boyfriends as well as the not so good choice that some of her friend s were maing. We found a house, embraced the move and all seemed well. She had no problem making new friends and became active in the new school.
My son blaims the change in my daughter in the choice of a boyfriend, as he believes she was happy until he came on the scene. Perhaps he is right.
She is a beautiful girl but percieves her self as being to heavy. She certainly is not a size 6 and is tall, and large breasted. She did put on some weight in college with the drinking that occurs and lousy eating and no longer plays sports ( was a basketball and soccer player) 1 and 1/2 years ago became a vegan, which lasted till she came home this summer, she is still a vegitarian. She works out quite a bit to control her weight with moderate success.
So yes the fall out with the boyfriend did hurt her and removed a cicle of mutual frinds that remain so loyal to him (chiildhood friends). She also has distanced her self from a girl Friend that nwho is quite dramaful and seems to make some questionalble moral choices.
My wife believes she has a loyalty problem with friends. So at home now she has few friends, she is in a soreity in college and seems to have many friends (similar to how she once was in our current community)
Any other questions feel free to ask
