I was so sad when Dad and Mum split up two years ago. I was heartbroken. I got on with him so much better than with Mum who was always criticising me. He used to call me his “little darling” even when I was fully grown.
So I really missed him when he didn’t make contact for a month. He then confessed that he had met someone else and had moved in with her and her two children. Both girls.
I was quite shocked and rather jealous. I kept ringing him asking when he was free but he kept putting me off. Eventually we met up in a café and he brought his girlfriend along. She seemed okay but kept pawing Dad and didn’t ask anything about me. She obviously wasn’t interested. Nor did she seem to understand that I wanted to talk to Dad on my own.
Last Christmas I asked if I could spend time with him perhaps go on Boxing Day or Christmas Eve. He put me off again and just sent me a voucher for Christmas which is the sort of thing you send to someone you don’t know. Now this Christmas is nearly with us I’ve still not heard if I can go and see him.
I feel heartbroken and totally abandoned and don’t know what to do. Mum is still recovering from the split and won’t talk about it. We will probably go to my grandmother’s which will be pretty gloomy.
