RULES FOR DATING MY DAUGHTER . . .

It's Prom Season again . . . time for a re-post of THIS wisdom . . . S.L.


Rule # One:

If you pull into my driveway and honk, you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure as Hell not picking anything up.


Rule Two:

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.


Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear baseball hats on backwards and your trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off your hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open-minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your hat on backwards, underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, In order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my pneumatic nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist. And while I'm at it I will rotate your baseball hat so the visor's in front, like it should be.



Rule Four:

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate: when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I WILL kill you.


Rule Five:

In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."



Rule Six:

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.


Rule Seven:

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like change the oil in my car?


Rule Eight:

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness.


Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T- shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose-down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.


Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless God of your Universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. My personal intelligence network is extensive and it is everywhere. I also have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.


Rule Ten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for an inbound re-supply chopper. When my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to start cleaning my guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car. There is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

  1. AWESOME! I am going to save a copy of this (daughter(s) drive their father's crazy), if you don't mind. This is the daughter dating SOP. Of course it wouldn't hurt to be cleaning the ol' Mossy 590 or Glock 21 when the young man comes to the house, plus giving a bone crushing handshake and making him stand while you sit. Any form of physical/mental/emotional intimidation is allowed when it comes to a supposed young man wanting to date any daughter of mine. Thank you!

  3. Rule 11:

    Always remember, I am not afraid to go back to prison.

    ====================

    True story. An uncle (may he RIP) was fond of shooting skeet. Whenever his daughters were dating a young man his rule was that the young man would come into the house and introduce himself to Dad. Dad would, of course, be taking this opportunity to reload shotshells. I was lucky enough to witness one of the events. Uncle Joe could keep one cold eye focused on the young man while he asked questions and poured gunpowder and shot into the press. It was spectacular and very amusing. His daughter just stood off a bit behind shaking her head and rolling her eyes, but the young man was completely focused on every word coming out of Uncle Joe's mouth and every action of his hands.

  5. Hi friend I want share with you some dating tips hope you enjoy. Be a gentleman We should all strive to be gentlemen at all times; however, many men today shy away from it, attempting to respect a woman’s space and equality. Believe it or not, there are still plenty of women who still appreciate chivalry and being treated like a lady, and being a gentleman when you are in the presence of a lady shows her that you are attentive, respectful and well-mannered.
    2. Maintain eye contact
    It can be tempting to look a beautiful woman up and down, and the more beautiful she is, the harder it is to concentrate on the conversation with her. Just remember, if she catches you staring at her cleavage when she’s telling you how much her dad means to her, you’ll look like a creep.
