  • Your daughter hasn't had time to transform into an adult yet. She thinks she is going to college and is going to be capable of taking care of you. I would talk to her about how ok you are with living by yourself bc I would be afraid she might leave college to move with you to Vegas. I'm telling you this bc I myself am still young and have attachment issues with my mother and I want you to make sure she stays on her path of college.

    Answer by kylansmommy09 at 2:16 PM on Apr. 9, 2011

  • Don't settle anywhere until you know you want to live there. Just visit. Let her settle in college. She may not even like it then she might want to come home or to another college and you are out all that money of moving. I'd go to Vegas and check it out but at our age we have the opportunities to be nomadic and travel around and see what all our options are. Don't listen to your ex. Tell him to live his own life and you need to live yours. It would be a shame to "wake up dead" and missed out on all you want to do in this life bc others tell you not to. You have done your time with the family. Now it's your time. Enjoy

  • Do what you want to. Your daughter needs to start becoming her own person. And you deserve to do whats best for you. And Las Vegas is not so far away.
