  • I agree with SinaiJ!!! If you are that close, you should be able to tell her how you feel!

  • You say she is like a sister. She has a new love. Try joking with her about it and joke her into listening to you.

  • You're grown. You have a child of your own. Maybe she's enjoying her freedom a bit. I plan to as well when my kids are grown.

  • well i am sure you can make time to squeeze in what u have to say, try sending her a text or something, maybe it's just the beginning butterflies... it will soon pass we all get all giddy in the beginning

  • If you are really close, you should be able to tell her how you feel. Let her call you some. That way she might be more willing to ask you about your son. Throw a question or two in there about her BF. You need to know how close they are. Also, she's old enough to date, what happened to your father?
