9 Rules For Dating My Daughter in 2017

With all the mobile phones, online dating and social media it is very hard to keep track of our young daughters. At this age, they are very likely to experience their first love and possibly even a heartbreak. As much as we wish we could protect them, it is simply not possible. Young boys can be extremely persistent and immature. A dad who has 3 daughters has shared his personal rules for dating my daughter.

“I remember myself at that age. I and my friends always tried to score girls and competed with each other all the time. I was young and reckless. I broke hearts and got my heart broken. I’m definitely not proud of that and want to do everything I can to protect my daughters from boys like that. Having 3 daughters is not easy. Currently, all of them have boyfriends and all of them obey my rules. Here are my simple rules for dating my daughter:”

Rules for dating my daughter

  1. Be grateful 

All of my daughters are beautiful, intelligent and kind. Be happy that you have a chance with her and never take it for granted. You must always make her feel special and loved. If you are planning on dating her in order to use her and leave her, trust me, I will find out.”

   2. Respect our house

“If you come to pick her up, don’t honk your horn on the driveway or ring the doorbell hundreds of times. Just wait peacefully, or come in and wait in the hallway if she has invited you. It’s also not a good idea to walk around the house or help yourself in the kitchen. Remember, even if you are dating my daughter, this doesn’t mean you come over whenever you want. I’m watching you.”

  3. Watch your eyes and your hands

“If I see your hands going lower than her waist level and your eyes looking up and down at my daughter, watch out. Better, just don’t even try doing that at all. You can only and touch her the way I think is appropriate, if you won’t do so, consider you aren’t dating my daughter anymore and this was the last time you saw her. I’m not joking.”

4. Look appropriately 

“When you take my daughter out for a date, I expect that you dress appropriately. Don’t go out of your house looking like a gangsta or a rockstar. Trust me, this is not attractive at all. I understand that you want to impress her but this is not the right way to do it. If your clothes look like you have been rolling in the mud for hours, don’t show up either. Take a shower, wear a normal pair of pants and a shirt and you will be ok.”

5. Be prepared to have a long conversation with me 

“If my daughter picked you to be her boyfriend, I need to get to know you. I want to make sure you are dating her for all the right reasons. Things I may ask you is what your hobbies are, where do you study, what your goals are, and many other possible questions. I also want to know what kind of a person you are. I am very good at reading people so don’t try to fool me. My suggest you practice at home for a while because if I don’t like something that you say, consider yourself single.

6. Know what an appropriate date is

“An appropriate date could be going for lunch, dinner, movies, park, mall, things like that. What you can’t do is invite her over to your house when your family isn’t home or have a date that’s later than 9 pm. I will know where you are and I will find you, so don’t try to lie or hide anything from me. Also, don’t consider sneaking into the house late at night. We have a big dog at home and he is trained.”

7. Learn to wait 

“Girls take way longer to get ready than guys, it’s a known fact. If you didn’t know that, then now you know. My daughter might take an extra hour or two to get ready. She wants to look her best and it may involve her washing her hair, styling it, doing her makeup, picking out the prettiest outfit. She wants to look her best for you. So be patient and wait, don’t sign or look annoyed. Instead, you could be useful and help me around the house for extra points.”

 

Online dating rules

I understand that it’s absolutely impossible to avoid online dating nowadays, but believe me, it’s terrifying to me as a father. There are so many fake accounts and pedophiles on dating sites. I must make sure my daughter never has to go through that. Here are my rules for dating my daughter if you meet online:”

 8. I will see your online conversation 

“Before my daughter meets your for the first time in real life, I will see all of the conversations you’ve had with her. I need to do this to make sure my daughter is talking to a boy her age and not a pedophile or another fake account. If there’s something fishy about the conversation, then, sorry, but you will not meet. I’m just doing my job as a father.”

 9. You will have to meet me before the first date

“I must know who my daughter is going out with. I try to do it with any boy, but this rule is more strict to boys that my daughters meet online. Be prepared to have a short conversation with me before you go on your date. This is all for my daughter’s safety”.


“These are my rules for dating my daughter. This list could go on and on but I tried to sum it up. Hope you enjoyed reading it, haha.”
