Are you the dad of a teenager girl? I am. If you are, then I think you can relate to how I feel about my daughter dating and how protective, or overprotective, according to her. Ok, maybe I’m a little cliché, but if you follow these simple guidelines, you’ll do ok. Think about, I may just as for a DNA sample for future use.
Rule #1- Don't Honk The Horn
If you pull into the driveway and honk your horn, or if you pull up and send her a text to let her know you are here, it would be in your best interest to turn around because now you are going stag to that party.
Rule #2- No Touchy!
No touchy! Noooooo touchy! If you want to make it to date number too, have some respect and value her limitations. I do have military training…not a threat, just stating a fact.
Rule #3- Keep Your Pants Up
If your pants are “on the ground”, come back when you are properly dressed. I would prefer that you don’t wear a goofy looking hat with the tag still on it, but if you must, it better be on straight. You don’t want me to assist you in properly adjusting your drawers. Did mention my military training?
Rule #4- How To Talk To Her Dad
When you come to the door, if you have to wait a few minutes for my daughter to finish getting ready, do not discuss with me any other information other than what time you plan on being home. If it’s later than I typically go to bed, you may need to adjust your plans.
Rule #5- Don't Complain
If my daughter is not ready when you come to pick her up do not complain, do not fidget, and do not roll your eyes-get used to waiting. It’s what guys do.
Rule #6- Don't You Dare Lie
Don’t lie to me. I have more computer skills than you realize. I will find your Facebook page and I will find out what happened. I also have access to my daughter’s Facebook page. I may be older, but I’m not stupid. I was a teenage boy once.
Bottom line is to have fun...responsibly, and you and I will get along just fine.
