If you believe that you're craving relationships as a coping method, I'd trust your instincts. It's good to be curious about your behaviors and how they relate to you as a fatherless daughter. Being able to stand back, look at our destructive patterns, and change them is a rare ability. Those who do it, though, save themselves a lot of heartache and gain control of their destinies.
Your gut may be telling you to spend some time by yourself. Moving from one relationship to another keeps us from enjoying our own company and figuring what we want out of life. It distracts us from the task at hand. This would be an especially critical step to take if you're consistently in relationships with less than stellar men.
Like many fatherless daughters, I had low standards for the guys I dated in my 20's. I was just grateful for any man who gave me attention. My girlfriends with loving dads, though, had high expectations for the guys they dated. Their close father-daughter relationship gave these women an incredible sense of self-worth. Therefore, they simply refused to tolerate bad behavior from anyone but especially their boyfriends.
Since my dad was emotionally absent, I lacked confidence. I had to build it through my own achievements: graduating from college, starting a career, and purchasing a house. It was through my accomplishments that I gained pride and eventually expected more out of the men I dated.
I think you're on the right track and I wish you well.
