    Im 18, ive been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years now. We are honestly great as far as relationships go, however, he has a 15 year old sister. She absolutely hates the guts out of me, when we went on holiday she tried to punch me and shes tried numerous times since. I think she hates me because im so involved with the family when shes a very secluded teenager. I just dont know what to do, ive been nothing but nicer to her than i am to anyone else to try to win her over even after she hit me on holiday. Has anyone else been through this situation and got out of it happily?
    -he is completely on my side and has argued with her many times over this
    -i have spoken to their parents and they have no idea what to do either

    His sister is a total b and you don't have to do her favours to win her over. She's nearly grown so she'll figure it out soon and learn for herself how not to behave.

    Since its his family you cant really ask him to choose you or them because that's a bit too much. You can wait for him to move out and never have anything to do with his sister for a while or you can reduce your activities with him around his sister. Hes on your side so he'd understand. I don't think you should give someone who's 15 a chance if they've done these kind of things many times.

    she sounds really childish for a 15 year old

    Tried to punch you?!

    She sounds horrible. Even if you annoy her, there is no justification for attacking you.

    Nothing you can do. You will probably break up in the next few years anyway. No offence.

    Should I just try and wait for her to grow out of it? Would you not recommend trying to talk about it?
