Hello, I am a psychiatrist.

Why do you want to make her like someone to whom she's not attracted?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
She used to be interested in him but she has also an interest in a boy that won't step up and she knows that
Expert:  MN Psychiatrist replied 5 years ago.
I see. That said, she lost interest in this young man for a reason - whatever it is. That means that she's decided that he's not right for her. Why try to change that?
If her new interest is not a good fit for her, that's a separate issue, but that doesn't mean she should be with someone she doesn't want. From what you've shared, it sounds like she shouldn't be with either of these young men.

I became friends with this young man, should I still continue being friends with him even if my daughter has no interest in him?
