Any advice / tips for meeting a Boyfriends teenage daughter for the first time?
I've met my boyfriends younger daughter who's 6 before and everything was awesome! I have a 3 year old so I've got experience with toddlers / younger kids. I'm a bit nervous about meeting his older daughter over pizza tonight. She's 15. Any tips
Don't try too hard!
Teenagers tend to think adults are "lame" for the most part and if someone tries too hard to connect with them they often see it as being fake. Just "be yourself" and let things flow naturally.
Accept the fact that (it's going to take time) for her to get to know & trust you. She may view liking you as betraying her mother.
This is especially true if the mother harbors resentment towards her ex. If that's the case she doesn't want things to go smoothly.
