difficult child-daughter has a very concerning reoccurring tendency toward the same romantic delusion... The "storyline" remains the same... the characters change.... "His family (usually his mother) LOVES ME!!!!" and..."I haven't met him yet..." (or "I barely knew him when I knew him, but now we're so many miles apart and we KNOW we belong together!")... Always... "WE'RE so SERIOUS about each other!" And frequently... "I already KNOW I'm going to MARRY him!" We just heard through the grapevine difficult child-daughter is planning to fly to Germany to meet her current romantic delusion. She "fell in love" with "current guy" that she's never met... through his mother... they work together. difficult child-daughter revealed this plan after hearing about easy child's ever increasing success as a young adult... easy child is moving into her own expensive apartment on her own... and will be covering all her expenses with her own hard earned salary! husband and I are sooooo proud... and sooo blessed to have one child who is healthy and lovingly attached to us!!!!! The concept of difficult child-daughter chasing a stranger out of the country is a nightmare for easy child, husband and I! But our hands are tied unless we want to have her admitted against her will for psychiatric evaluation. We won't do it! We only know about her insane plan as "hearsay" through a third party. For all we know it ALL could be just another huge Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) lie... difficult child-daughter could be trying to bait us to "react" through an innocent third party because difficult child-s' local audience's attention may be waning, not enough drama to keep the crowds. The scary thing is "the chasing a romantic stranger story" does mimic so many of her past "relationships." Oh, and this is the week we've been getting harassing calls all week saying the same "buying a ticket to Germany difficult child" failed to pay her student loan. My "non-professional" opinion is she keeps subconsciously seeking her birth-mom through all these crazy relationships. What would Dr Freud think?
