Dysfunctional father-daughter relationships

Question: I recently started a relationship with a man who has a 15 year old daughter. In the beginning he told me he was unable to have a relationship in the past due to his daughters behavior and emotional issues. She believes she is his girlfriend. She does everything for him a girlfriend would do. She keeps tabs on him, goes thru his phone & email. wears his clothes & walks around smelling them. We went to see a band the other nite & came back to his house to her in his bed in panties & a tshirt. What is this called when a daughter is this way towards her father?

Dear Anonymous,
Unfortunately, it is the father, your boyfriend, who is allowing the behavior. In a way, he is encouraging it. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but you need to get out of this relationship immediately. You may want to think about filing a report with your local department of children and family services. I would actually encourage you to do that. This isn't the man for you. It is he who has the issues, not his daughter.
