“He has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up ’til now.”
This sounds great, right? It sounds like paradise, actually. I know that there have been times in my life when I’ve been dating someone and I’ve thought to myself “you know what would make this romantic relationship even more special? If we had more of a father-daughter dynamic going on.” And that’s why this little revelation makes me a little angry, because Elisabetta and George had that, and they threw it all away.
You don’t let something that special go, Elisabetta. Once you find a partner that you see as a parental figure, you grab on with both hands, and you hold on tight. Better luck next time, girl. You live and learn*.
*Why yes, I did thoroughly creep myself out with this whole story.
