My 22 year old daughter got dumped by her boy friend.

She's crushed! He was quite a catch, a well off and good looking celebrity. Although she was his first serious relationship, thery're both young and you know it wouldn't last forever, it upsets me too. The way he broke up, on the phone, refusing to talk to her face to face. It came out of the blue, from one day to another he doesn't love her anymore, feels nothing and didn't miss her at all when they were apart. Cuts off and not any contact since that phone call. My daughter doesn't contact him either which is good, she wants to but knows it'll hurt her even more. The thing is I'm angry, I don't wish him well at all, quite the opposite. I'm secretly have hateful thoughts, I'm like a child here and ashamed of it even though noone knows. So I guess I'm the tiger mom looking out for My kid, or am a psycho?

Oh, I didn't take offence. You asked a question, whether you were psycho. I was simply addressing that. I wouldn't say psycho, but I would say taking a step back would be a really good idea. I agree that there are more respectful ways to break up, but it is between the two of them. You just need to be there to support your daughter in her grief, but other than that, you just need to stay out of it. Whatever you do, do NOT bag the guy out. As I said, it is their business, leave it their business.

Not My first regret just explaining what a popular Guy he is. And yesI know My thoughts are off. Although I share them with noone, so noone is affected by them at all. Carrying it all inside me. Just sad that she's hurting real bad. Thery're both good kids though I do believe there is a more respectfull Way to break up knowing one Will be hurt.
I did believe this site was for questions and occationally spilling your guts while being in a bad place. If some takes offense, I'll take My leave.

I'm a little concerned that your very FIRST regret was that he was a good catch, well off and good looking celebrity....is this really teaching good values?

Anyhow, your daughter is 22. It's really not any of your business how or why they ended it. I think you need to take a step back. Sure, I can understand you hurting for your daughter, but to have anger at him and have hateful thoughts is over the top.
