My boyfriend gossips about me to his adult daughter

by J
(Virginia)

What to do? His daughter and he talk through his relationship issues for the women he has met in this past five years since his wife died. "Who am I having a relationship with, you or your daughter?" is what I asked him (not so bluntly, though). His response was to tell me the next time we talked was that he is not sure "we" can survive "extended" family issues - not "blended" but "extended" with the focus on MY interactions with my extended family. Which are quite good, as a matter of fact - I am "the favorite aunt" kinda person in my BIG and EXTENDED family. A defense mechanism to argue this point (on his part) and a big FAIL since my relations are good. That he should love his children is NO QUESTION and i even acknowledged how good it is to have living memories in his children of good times of his wife and family.

What to do about this inappropriate gossip???
