Obsessed with my teenage daughters love life

Hi I read something similar on here and wanted to get out how I am feeling. My daughter turned 15 and started an online relationship with a 17 year old boy. I was really supportive as he made her so happy and even though he lived 400 miles away I helped her meet up with him on regular occasions. I'm not sure if it was because I was so involved in making their relationship work driving her there and arranging meetings but I found I would ask how things are and want to know if she had spoken to him etc. he even stayed with us for a week. I found I was fantasizing on the future and how they would make it work as they grow. Would she go to college near him. Thinking about when she could drive to meet him when she got a car even where the wedding would be. I'm not sure if I got caught up in the romance and happiness of their relationship. So when it came to an end suddenly after a year ( my daughters choice) I have found it hard that he is taking it hard. I keep checking his statuses and hers to see if he is coping. I don't understand these feelings but I feel I am living the break up and I'm over concerned for him. Do I need help!!!!

Tracy, you may be a little too involved in your daughters love life. It's normal to get excited about it for her and and sad when she is sad, but fantasizing about their future may be a bit much. I don't encourage my daughters to date. They have plenty of time for that in college.
