Dad is seeing another woman now. He has been divorced with my mom three years ago. This is the third time he introduced someone new to me again. He said he met this woman in a bar a week ago. This Peru lady is not that beautiful but so kind to me. I’m not sure if she’s just sugarcoating or pretending to be nice to me. Tell me, how do I get rid of her? I don’t like her to be my stepmom. And I don’t want her to be my dad’s new girlfriend! Please help!
Tell your dad, “Every year you introduce me to someone new. I don’t want to meet these women and become attached only to not see them again. Can you do me a favor and not introduce me to anyone unless and until you’re engaged? Then I can fully embrace the new person in our lives.”
This will free him up not to mix romance with family life and force him to be more serious (and selective!) about who he brings home.
