Daddy Dating Complex
Have you noticed some oddly familiar traits about your boyfriend?
Sure, the thought of dating a version of your dad might make you want to puke. But if you can get over the gross factor and think character traits, you might be surprised.
Dr. Linda Nielsen, a psychologist at Wake Forest University, says, “Women who grow up with meaningful, comfortable relationships with their dads make better choices in who they date, sleep with, and marry."
It’s natural that you would associate how to express love with your primary caregivers. So whether your relationship with your dad is good or bad, if thinking about what you like and don’t like helps you decide on the things you want most in a partner, that’s not a bad thing, right?
