  • I just posted moments ago about my daughter wanting to tell everyone she is gay------but she is only 14. I feel its too early for her to determine this amongst her High School friends. In your case---your an adult. You cannot tell anyone who to love, but I am sure it surprised your daughter. My best advice is keep talking with her and let her know you love her

  • How old is your daughter? If she's still very young, explaining to her that mommy and daddy are taking some time off from each other. As for seeing you kiss, I'd do that more privately until she's old enough to understand that adults who are the same [gender] can have healthy relationships just like adult couples like mommies and daddies.

  • It's safe for 2 women to date but if I were you I would wait till the divorce is finally before becoming to series. You need to sit down with your daughter and explained things to her. She may be confused. It wasn't that long ago when you were with her father a man and now sh sees you kissing a woman. There is nothing wrong with that but to a child it's very confusing.

  • Do you think your daughter was taken back by this because of the actual kiss.........or could she have been taken back by the fact that you might have moved on and no longer care for her father? She might be more worried about that part.

  • Depending on the age of your daughter, this might be very, very confusing to her. Maybe a more indepth explaination?

  • Daaaammmmmnnnn...that sucks. The first time my kids saw me kiss a guy (the guy Im with now), they actually cried. I felt horrible.. I just explained to them (5&3).. that Daddy & I no longer are going to be boyfriend/girlfriend, but we will always be friends and we will always love them both the same! They love my new guy now.. and his new girl.
