I'm confused; my boyfriend of 9 months recently broke up with me due to my so called insecurities. He hasn't talked much to me or my 13 yr old daughter in the past week. He used to text her and call her often and would tell her daily how much he loves n cares for her as his own little girl, then the past 2 weeks he was very distant from her and me. Now, almost 2 weeks after the break up, he says he wants to continue to be apart of my daughters life because he loves her n cares for her a lot and he tells me she should be his daughter. He said last night for me to not keep her from him that he wants to take care of her forever, he sad she knows he loves her and cares for her thats why she trusts him (her real father is not there for her always) my daughter does adore my ex very much. I am confused as to how he can be distant from me but wants to continue to care for my daughter and be in her life? I feel he may be using her to keep the connection with me; so confused! For the 2 weeks after our break up he seemed like he didn't care for either one of us, and all a sudden he's back to texting my daughter and he called her yesterday, telling her he will always be there for her! Yet I text him last night and he texts me very little then just stops texting! I don't understand; if he wants to be part of her life still, he has to go through me :( so confused.
