Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
My wife of 32 years passed away a year and a half ago. I have been dating a woman for the past 3 months. The relationship has grown to the point where I want to introduce her to my 28 year old daughter. I have told her I have been dating but get no questions. I brought up the idea of having my new friend over for a cook out and my daughter told me she was not yet ready for that. I would like my new relationship to continue to move forward but I also want my daughter to feel at least comfortable with the idea. Can you suggest any techniques I may use to slowly help my daughter get comfortable?
