I think there is s oon thing to be said for a correlation between the health of a girl's relationship with her father, and the health of her adult relationships with men. I don't seem to chose good men, and fall deeply for the few bad boys I've been with. And I realize that I was looking for someone sub-par to fill the void of my own father rejecting me. He had money, but he was abusive and completely controlling. Then he died. So I have money and my freedom, and I love my single life! My daughter never really got close to him. He was too busy with his own selfish life. Now the two of us girls are independent and very happy. I am admittedly jaded, untrusting of men, and fall too easily, too deeply, too soon. I've had enough and know I am bad at relationships. I am physically attracted to men, but psychologically man-o-phobic. I love my freedom, love living life on my own terms, and love the relationship I have with my daughter. I am a great mom and she loves me to bits. She has all my time and affection. We've got it so good. I have started my own business. Very happy. Don't want a man, don't trust them anyways. I am female-centric and very independent. She doesn't need a dad. I am so much happier without a man, and one would steal my attention from my daughter. Isn't it possible that I am better off alone?
