I'm 25, my BF is 36, his children are 15 & 17, it take a while for them to warm up, considering you are very close in age, she's proably judging you - would't you do the same?
Try to smile and be nice to her - if the relationships works out, and you are kind to her - she will eventually like you - I know my step-kids do now, but it takes time to prove you not what they think you are.
If your not willing to put up with the judgement - leave now, before it gets any worse..

She is his daughter yes, but shes also a grown woman, he can't tell her how to feel about you. You need to give it time so she can look past your age and respect you regardless. Sometimes, respect needs to be earned. Give it time, and the day will come where she acknowledges the things you do for her family. I knwo it sucks in the meantime, but if your not willing to deal with it that would be my deciding factor on if I was going to stay in the relationship.
Don't ask dad and daughter to fight over you -- this will only cause more problems.. Just play nice and wait it out if you really want this relationship.

Well it does not suprise me that the 22 year old does not like you since your dating her dad and young enough to be her sister...if my dad did that I would never talk to him again. What does suprise me is that the 26 year old likes you...since y'all are the same age. I have a friend who is 19 and he now ex is 36...he had a daughter that was her age and that was pretty much the end of their relationship. I would say your wasting your time if he isnt gonna put him foot down about her being rude to you though because even if she is only a few years younger than you she is still his child and he is still her father. But I would say put yourself in her shoes if it where your dad with a GF your age how would you feel about her?
