He is in love with you....

That is what my sister said to me after Thanksgiving. Since then, it has been on my mind. My father in law is always at my home. He comes and he helps me around the house. He fixes stuff and he keeps the outside of our home in shape. Usually he eats here, because he is always fixing things or sprucing up the outside of my home. I appreciate his help, because I like my house to be clean and beautiful. This is an old house with no mayor problems. Anyway, I always thought he was lonely and he appreciate the company of my kids and me. Don't get me wrong he has never made a pass of me, but my sister put that thought in my mind and I cant get rid of it. Should I be concern or is my sister maybe misinterpreting my fil?

Did she say why she thought that? Personally I wouldn't give much credit to someone else's judgement on a situation that you know first hand. Don't let her words create doubt or concern in your mind when it wasn't there before based on your actual experience.

We live together if that is your question, he works 12 hours a day.

I'd assume he was trying to be a good grandpa and inlaw, and that he is probably, as you said, lonely. Don't stress it. Your sister is just screwing with your head.

I think he's just being nice and helping his son's family keep their home nice since he works 12 hours a day.  Your sister should have kept that inaccurate sounding thought to herself.

I wouldn't care if it were true as long as he's doing stuff, lol. I wouldn't address it.

This.

It's a shame that your sister would misinterpret someone just being helpful. Does she have any healthy relationships in her life?

He is probably helping since your husband works and he's being a good dad and grandpa.

I'm sure he loves you but not in love with you. If that was the case my dad would be in love with my husband
