  • How old is your daughter? I think you need to step back. Getting your heart broke is part of growing up. I still remember when my son was 12 the love of his life dumped him via text. He was so sad for like 2 days and then was ok. Live and learn and all that jazz.

  • You don't. She needs to learn this dating thing all by herself.Be there when she needs you..But do not interfere in her relationship. JMO

  • IF YOU HAVE PROOF, THEN BY ALL MEANS COMFRONT HER WITH IT, IF YOU DON'T JUST STAY OUT OF IT.

  • She probably won't believe you anyway, and if you are wrong, you are going to damage your relationship with her.

    I'd just keep an eye on her (make sure she doesn't through herself at him!!) and be there when she finds out, and she will find out (one of the benefits of modern technology). If the subject does come up, remain neutral and objective, not personal and attacking on her or him - and if you can, discuss the consquences of girls who give into/go with guys who cheat to get a girl back, etc. - weigh the pluses & minuses, and let her come to the (hopefully right) conclusion.
