Daddy Vs Boyfriends

My father and I always enjoyed each other's company. He took me everywhere with him and he was always teaching me. At the market, he showed me how to choose the best fruits and vegetables. At the river, he showed me how to catch fish. At the seaside, he taught me how to swim. He even taught me how to drive.

My Dad was always very protective. In my early teens, boys started to become interesting and interested. But he never liked any of them.

One time a boy came to our house to pick me up for a date. He put his arm around my shoulders as we walked down the front steps. My father yelled out the window "Boy, do you want to keep that arm?" "Yes, Mr. J"      "Then get it off of my daughter!"   I was so embarrassed.

Another time a boy came to visit, we were going to study together but my father wouldn't let him in the house. The boy insisted, giving all kinds of reasons. My Dad looked him in the eye and said "Boy, are you going to walk back down those stairs on your own or am I going to have to kick your a**  down them?" The boy ran.

My Dad had a reputation of being difficult so one clever boy only came to pick me up when no one else was home. Dad caught us at it one day and told the boy "If I ever catch you within a 10 kilometer radius of my daughter, I will shoot you." I wailed "Daaaaaddy!" but he wouldn't bend. I never saw that boy again.

But aside from not liking my boyfriends, Daddy was good to me. He never yelled at me. If I got into trouble , he patiently explained why the thing I had done hadn't been a good idea. If I wanted to go out shopping, he would slip money in my hand and wink "Don't tell your mother." 

Daddy has always been full of good advice. He lives far now but I call him whenever I have a question about anything: work, health, life, the world.

About anything except boys.

you are lucky to have such a great loving dad

You ask him about anything except boys? I think this is the one thing that you should not fail to ask him. Anyway it is nice to know that you have a dad who cares for you

I just taught my daughters how to see the bs a boy was running. I pity the poor men who fall in love with my daughters. They are intelligent, beautiful, charming and 80% of the men who try are turned down with such grace, there are men who are pining after them years later (these are guys who never even got a date!)

ha this story sounded kind of like the classic situation of most father-daughter relationships. it was cute and comical and it meade me smile =] I am glad you realize that he was just doing it out of fear of seeing his little girl grow up

Your father is a good man . He reminds me of me . I am the father of two girls whom I love much more than my self . I think being there Dad is th greatest thing God ever gave me.

My dad was just the opposite.

Fathers only want the very best for their daughters. Unfortunately, they're idea of the very best is different than their daughter's idea.

According to a coworker, a friend of his went to pick up his prom date to find her father in the living room cleaning his guns while wearing a clown suit. The father didn't say anything, but my coworker's friend treated his date like a princess and had her home before 10 PM. It's quite common for fathers to be overprotective of their teenage daughters. It's part of being a father.
