I have a only child, 20, and in her jr yr at a college 90 mins from home. She has always been somewhat introverted, but has always has a small group of friends and seems to always have a boyfriend. Her high school bf lasted 4 yrs till she went to college. She decided to distance herself from her high school friends who were not the best friends with alot of peer pressue and back stabbing, etc. Freshman yr of college was hard for her making new friends and she came home alot. Sophomore year she had made friends with a group of 4 girls, went out to things and seemed to start enjoy college life although she missed her pets and home. She got a bf also, but he is a partier/drinker and her friends weren't. So there was tension between her friends and bf. So skip ahead to now... she lives with 2 of these girls and they are no longer personal friends, the other girl transferred, and one became a RA and made a whole new group of friends. She is still with her bf, but he lives in a house with 8 other guys and there is a party and constant drinking every night with lots of girls and guys there. I thought she might fall to the peer pressure and begin drinking etc. It seems she hasn't. She sees her bf a bit in the early evening and goes back to her apt alone. She is coming home almost every week-end. Am surprised the relationship with the bf keeps going. She does have one hometown friend she sees some. She said she misses her 16 yr old cat, the dog, and her own bed. She is almost 21 so I know this is her life and her life to figure out. I know this isn't a question, but I was just wondering if anyone has any input or have similiar daughters without alot of social life?Answer Question
