I hope this doesn't come off sort of creepy or anything like that. I think those of you who are fathers of teenage daughters can share my angst. My oldest girl, 17, has gone off to her high school graduation prom this evening. I gave her the speech about drunk drivers and such, but a father still worries. I don't think I'll sleep tonight until she's safely home again.

Anyhow, here's a shot of her I just took. She gets her looks from her Mom, fortunately. And no, Wilhelm Schulz, before you ask, you can't have her phone number!

I know the feeling, you must feel quite proud and rightly so but yes, being a boy and knowing what they are like is a worry.
Don't worry, show her how proud you are of her and trust she'll be good.
I went through the same a while ago and mine is 22 now (still asks for money though), but have faith. If you've always tried to set the right example, she'll respond in kind

Hey Kaleun, I think I only live about an hour drive from you, can I have her number?

lol, j/k. I suppose I could more likley expect a fist to the eye.

It must be tough to be the father of a pretty teenage girl.

And in honesty seeing the pic kinda turns my stomach upside down as I've just been cheated on (sorry, some kinda mental association). How a sweet church girl whos saving herself for marriage can turn into a **** at the snap of a finger is still beyond me.

Very pretty girl you have there, hope she has a good time and gets home safe. I have about another 16- 17 years before I will have to worry about that, but I guess I will be up all night also.

Thanks for the kind words from all of you. I'm glad to say she got home safely, even though I did have a restless night of it. The thing that worried me most was the possibility of some drunken idiot getting behind the wheel. I gave her the talk before she left, told her that if her driver was drinking she was to call for a ride home and I'd come and get her. All went well, though, as she hangs out with a good bunch of kids who still respect their elders.

I suppose it is the parents who worry the most who have the least worries, if you can understand that. The parents who should be worried seem not to. My wife is on the school council and meets with the teachers and prinicipal on a regular basis. She told me that the event that bothers the principal the most is the prom. Last year he had to send a few kids home who had been drinking. He's a proactive kind of guy who likes to stay on top of things, so fortunately these things usually go off without major problems, but there will always be a few who test the limits. Here in Ontario the legal drinking age is 19, so most of the kids graduating are underage and therefore the prom is officially alcohol forbidden.

Well, one down and one to go. My youngest daughter just finished grade 9, so in three years it will be time to do it again.

Nice pic, Foehammer. Thanks for posting it and suggesting others do the same. This sort of thing takes the topic above and beyond and lets us get to know each other a bit more. And I agree with Otto when he says cute girl.

I'm a bit disappointed WH hasn't posted here yet. He's always up for a bit of good natured ribbing. Now that you mention it, I can only recall you and him as amongst the few teenagers here. Perhaps this game dates us, as a historical sim of this sort usually appeals to the older history fan. Anyhow, it is refreshing to see young people take an interest in history. We older folks are sometimes too quick to dismiss youth as being self absorbed. Glad to have you aboard.

Yesterday I saw a young girl about the age of 16 wearing a Led Zeppelin t-shirt. I was so glad to see that and it took me back to my high school days when I used to wear the same. Led Zeppelin were still a touring band when I was a teen. That young girl wasn't even born yet when Zeppelin disbanded in the wake of Bonham's death. I'm rather pleased to think that young folks are still listening to the classic bands of the 60's and 70's.

I see A LOT of kids wearing Pink Floyds "Dark Side of the Moon" t-shirts these days. I the one with the prism and the spectrum colors shining out of it. There's hope! (that there not listening to this over-produced pop junk that plays out there)

A few years ago I also noticed that one of the big sellers from Ambercrombie and Fitch was a raggy T-shirt with the term "82nd Airborne" on it. I noticed that they didn't use the proper title "82nd Airborne Division" Nothing like going up to a girl and saying "hey, you were in the 'Division' also" Then getting the blank, deer in the headlights stare! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

My son went to a surplus store and bought himself a Canadian Airborne Regiment tee shirt. I told him he might get into trouble wearing it. When he went into his firefighter training, the training officer and two of his fellow recruits were ex Canadian airborne members. They asked him if he was an ex airborne and when he replied in the negative, they gave him a good razzing. He didn't wear it for purposes of pretense, but more of a tribute to the unit type of thing.

That is the downside of allowing sacred symbols to be sold to the general public. You see the same thing with kids wearing camo clothing. Personally, I don't think anybody who doesn't serve should wear such clothing, but it's a free world. Now, if you should get caught wearing the Hell's Angel's trademark in an unauthorized manner, you could be in for a tough time. They jealously guard their image.

I'm only 20 here. I've had an interest in 20th century warfare history since I was just a wee lad. I rember being 8 years old and trying to build P-51 Mustangs and B-17's out of Lego.

And you'll see me wearing plenty of vintage t-****s (wearing a Black Sabbath Tee as I type). I just can't get into any of the modern music around today. Theres nothing but rap, punk, and a bunch of Theory-of-a-nickel-creed type bands. I would say it was probably the beginning of the end of music when grunge became popular. Its all been down hill since. Most of the music I listen to was written before I was born. The Exceptions being music that was written in the later half of the 80's, or 80's (or older) bands still producing music in the 90's. As yet another excpetion I listen to some new country now and then too.

I haven't been a teenager for several months now, but I'm still a youngin' around these parts.

kaleun1961...Be proud man, she is a beautiful girl. I am also a father, mine is almost 19. And, with that experience under my belt, I will say that Hueywolf123's advice is the best of the responses...

Quote: " have faith. If you've always tried to set the right example, she'll respond in kind."

That, in my humble opinion, is the honest truth.

My advice to you and others...show your daughters respect, show them love, show them understanding. What you show them is what they learn to expect from men. If your are an ***, they will learn to accept that and will then end up accepting a man who is an ***. If you show them a higher standard, then that is what they will look for and they will accept no less.

Finally, I am amazed with the variety of OT posts on this forum and the (usually) thoughtful responses that follow.

Lost Battalion is a good film. If I am correct, it was a made for television film, thus I expected that it was going to be a so-so movie. Was I surprised, then, how good a film it was. Sometimes those TV films are much better than the box office films. If anybody reading this has not yet seen it, I can assure you it is a film well worth watching.

Otto, enjoy the vacation. My son flew down to Texas this morning for a six day vacation. He's visiting with family friends in Tyler and looking forward to his first genuine American 4th of July celebration.

Hmmmm Looks like when the server crashed it burped & dumped a lot of the more recent posts.... Oh well, I'll try to rewrite my last post here as close as I can from memory.

Like I was saying... I've got 16 years before I'll have to worry about sending my daughter to her prom, but maybe not. IE: I, like Silent_O, didn't go to my own prom, but sat alone somewhere with a bottle of Old Crow bourbon instead. I wasn't popular in highschool. I was smart, a loner, & because I was physically small, I wasn't very good @ sports. I was therefore labelled a "nerd". However, I was "wild" by their standards; into all sorts of heavy metal bands (usually long before they became popular with everyone else), was the 1st in my school to wear a black leather biker jacket as a "badge of honor", etc. So I was called "the satanic nerd". Nerd, maybe. Satanic, no! But needless to say, I wasn't very popular with anyone, especially not with the ladies, in a "bible-thumping", football-crazed rural community.

As for there being hope for good music coming from younger generations.... I've not only been seeing a lot of 6 - 12 year old kids wearing Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Megadeth & Guns-N-Roses T-shirts, but some of them are even playing their songs on guitar! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif There is hope, I tell you! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

You sound quite a bit like me Stingray. I didn't go to prom either... well to tell you the truth neither myself or my best buddy are entirely sure our school had a prom (yeah I ditched alot of school too). We kind of think it was lumped into the grad dance as all one thing. Too embarrased to ask anyone by now.

I was always a misfit in my school. And it was bad because theres always conformity issuse in school but at mine it was to the next degree. Just like the Rush song "Subdivisions" it was taken to a higher level. There wearn't too many attractive girls at my school outside the city. I'm not entirely sure but I had to wonder if imbreeding played some sort of role around the area. You could litterally go to some schools in the city and see more attractive girls in 5 minuites than you would see at mine all day.

I was also considered "wild" by thier standards... well in the last couple years anyway. And pretty good for a guy who never got laid. I was smart but in high school very lazy, mostly finding it a complete waste of time. I just barely graduated then I went on to college and graduated with honors. The difference was that I was in college for something I was actually interested in (metal machining).

In hindsight I wish I went to a different school, I could have been a completley different person today maybe. ... But then maybe that wouldn't be such a good thing.

I never went to my prom, either. For the first 15 years of my life, I grew up in the city of my birth, Toronto. It was an adventurous childhood, never a dull moment, capped by my best year in school, grade 9. Then my Dad moved us to a small town west of the city and my social life became comatose. The next three years of high school were like a prison sentence to me. Bah! I would not spend one spare minute longer than necessary in that school. Too bad for me; I was told later by a girl from school that a few of her friends were hot for me. But girls were still less forward then than they are today; that or I was a bigger geek than I care to admit.

I was a bit of a geek at my school also, just very lazy. Hated being told what to wear by teachers who never bothered about their own appearance. Our school dance was a flop, me and some of my mates turned up drunk and got thrown out, some of the bullies turned up stoned and started a food fight, (by this time we'd crept back in), police got called. My dad was not too impressed having me come home with such 'lawfull' company. Girls hated me, teachers hated me. All turned out good, happily married, own my house and two cars etc. I'd love to rub faces in it, but couldn't be bothered with any of them

I remember people from high school that deserve no better than that. The kind that exist only to cause misery in others, a textbook case of a sociopath. Hopefully most of em end up in jail or dead.


Anywho it seems some of you who didn't do so well in high school are well off now. I thought I was going to have the last laugh until I was cheated on last week by what I thought was the most perfect girl I was going to meet. She &lt;was&gt; of strong moral fabric, loved all the same music I did, increadibly smart, went to church twice a week. Despite wanting to wait for marriage she was very interested in sex and talked like we'd be at it all the time after marriage. and yes she was actually interested in buying a U-boat painting for the house we'd live in one day. She loved the Leigh Light painting (ya'll probably know the one I mean). And all she said she'd never have sex before marriage and would often talk about the "beautiful chitlin's" we'd one day have...etc. I thought the ends would justify the means. She would be worth the wait, otherwise I'd just end up going from partner to partner and eventually end up like my parents, or bitter and alone (can't decide which is worse). Oh yesh, she is also a really cute redhed and has a DD cup size. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

All's I can say is that guy must have been one hell of a smooth talker or something, or maybe hung down to the knee, who knows. I'll admit I was starting to take her for granted somewhat, but always treated her well. And if I knew things were that bad I would have taken some kind of drastic action. I just wanted to get away, forget everything troubling me. I'm going to burn everything she's given me over the last year.

What bothers me is that decent girls are few. I also kind of lack the skills to draw them in even though I'm quite good looking myself. But I'm just living for the moment now. A heavy heavy dose of Motley Crue (and whisky to boot) over the last week is getting me through. Something about the sleezy Sunset Strip rock thats hitting the spot. And I'm absolutly hooked on "Don't Go Away Mad" and "You're All I Need."


Sorry, end rant. I'm just alittle worried now that it seems like most of my future has been taken away from me. Its pretty difficult to imagine once again finding all I thought I had locked in. But it seems to have turned out good for alot of you guys.

Don't beat yourself up over it, nor blame anyone else. It is sad, but these thing sometimes happen. You sound like a good person, you sound quite intelligent, it's her loss - not yours.

Thanks for the kind words gents. I must say it stiff baffles me how a girl like that could so quickly give up everything she believed in. Maybe the DD's suggest high amounts of estrogen and the chemicals were stronger than whatever she was made of. Too bad she gave up to the wrong person, definatly her loss. But its time to forget all about that. Try to do the right thing and you just get s-h-i-t on in the end.

I was in love with this girl for more than 2 years, but when she was available that bastard stole her http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif, he knew i was in love.

When I went to university I moved to the mainland, Portugal(I am from the Azores Islands)

During that time I had two girlfrinds but both just dumped me for others guys. At least they havent cheated on me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif (At least that is what I think)

Well, our friedship grew again and i couldnt stop that, even if I wanted to.
A year ago she was having some problems with her boyfriend (they were having problems all the time) and she came to me. During one week we were together as friends. I even asked a friend his car, to take her to a nice place. During that time she said to great things to me that, like she wanted to be with, but could not just dump her boyfriend, etc, that sort of things.
I had to make a tremendous effort, to avoid making something stupid, like kissing her... I was sure that something like that would ruin everything.

Well that week just passed and she returned to her boyfriend, leaving me in in bad shape.
From that time,m things between us were never the same. She started to avoid me.
I just left her alone, had to live my life damn http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif.

Life is hard my friend. Take comfort in knowing that you're not all alone. 5 years of your life a waste? Hell, pretty much my entire life was a complete waste until I started college. Before the DD girl there was this Portuguese girl I was so into and worked on her for damn near 2 years. And even in the end when she was making it quite obvious it would never go anywhere, I blindly kept pushing on. Strangly that girl is a mess now. She just went straight to decadence without my influence. Shes into drugs now as far as I know and her ambitions include opening a tattoo parlour. But I don't concern myself and I don't miss her. I just take it as a learning experience.

You have to find something to take your mind off it, set a new goal for yourself or something. Stand up straight, hold you head high, and square your shoulders for the hard road ahead.

Booze and a highly immersive computer game are a good start. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Or you may want to get dating or get laid or something. Thats not something I can easily accomplish. All though I'm pretty damn good looking theres something about my personality that turns women off untill they talk to me for awhile and get to know me. I've been pretty much flat out told that before. I've had girls really warm up to me when they've been around long enough but I somehow make a bad first impression. Sadly first impression is like probably 95% of the game.

Thought I might add something , I think we all have a few ghosts in the closet.
I too had the problem of getting to know girls before getting into their underwear and found after weeks of getting to know we were friends and staying there.
Leaving school gave me a new sheet, the gym was a good friend and months later I had 52inch chest and the belly was gone.
I dont know if my confidence was the change or they liked the new bod but I found myself with girls. Found my wife and have settled down very happy.

I think when you try for a new start its time to leave the past behind, its rough to watch a friend trample your feelings with a girl you are hot for but at 20 there is a whole lot of life out there. You wont attract the girls without a smile. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif so throw a few around and see what comes back, try new places new clubs, gyms and for me it was martial arts classes.

@Andre
I feel your pain. I've got a "ghost" that has haunted me for over 15 years. I know as well as anyone what regret is. I suggest that you tell her that you have loved her since you were 16 & give her an ultimatum; stating that you have waited for her & this is her chance that if she wants to be with you, she better do it now or else you're moving on. You've waited long enough my friend, but if she doesn't come around now, she's probably not ever going to. And you don't want to be strung along & held "in reserve" as her "fall-back plan". You deserve more than being "second best". The reason I say you should do this is so that you won't always wonder for the rest of your life what might've been if only you had said or done something different.

For any relationship to work, you must be able to live with them, talk with them, eat with them etc. If anything annoys now, it will be magnified in a couple of years time. If she isn't too interested now, she'll be less interested later. Don't look just at the body, take a look under the hood as well, an average girl with a personality of gold is worth 50 catwalk models any day.

For fathers that have teenage daughters beginning to date.
(I just got this from my squadmate, JG52SoraAkuma.)

A Father's 10 Dating rules:

Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure 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 their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their 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 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 electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.

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:
It is usually understood that 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 harder and louder.

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 changing the oil in my car or take out the trash?

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. 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. I 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 unmarked Iraqi car coming into an American base compound in Iraq. For when my "Desert Storm Syndrome" starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the 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.

I swear it must be the 3rd time I've seen that list and it cracks me up every time. And I imagine to some degree it would be how I would be as a father.

Mein fellow Kaleun with attractive young daughters, I don't know how you manage. I think I'd be about as paranoid as a Vietnam vet who was behind bamboo bars for 5 years before escaping. And I can say so as being one of the young preditors myself. Much more respectful than most of course.



And well said to those on to go for more than just looks in a girl, which I definitely do. One common problem with superhot women is that they are so used to getting whatever they want from whomever they want at the snap of a finger their whole lives that they never develop any kind of personality (not one I'd be interested in anyway). They are often *****y, have absolutly no personal thoughts of their own, MTV decides every aspect of their life, what to think, what to wear, how to feel...etc. Not all of them of course, just too many of them.

And for the record of the DD girl I lost. When I first met her she was 180 pounds. I was along time before we fell for each other. For about the first year we were just casual aquaintences pretty much. I later found out that in the time I didn't know her well she went through an unfortunate bought of anerexia. The bright side of that being she was a more attractive 140 pounds. Still alittle chubby, not too much. She had a bit of a tummy but it was not saggy or anything and I thought it was pretty cute actually.

My point to this rambling story is that I would have still loved her if she was 180, or 200 pounds, whatever. It didn't matter to me, and I considered the DD's to be a bouns. Perhaps alittle extra reward for doing the right thing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

... But damn she would have been smoking hot at lets say 120 pounds and she'd still be at least a D-cup then. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


Right now I just want a decent girl I can well relate too. Decent looking too, I don't require a model or anything. And no looks aren't the most important thing but you can't just forget about that altogether. A girl you can't help but to feel ill at the thought of her naked, well I can't imagine that would make for a very healthy relationship.

Hehe. I am a firefighter and there was a list like this that came out a while back for firefighters that had daughters. Was a total hoot. Things like, €œdon€t forget I know how to use, Axes, chain saws, pike poles, jaws of life (or in your case death) and I know where exactly to place the wound to cause the maximum pain. Don€t forget that all my friends are COPS and firefighters. If you think calling 911 will help you, I am 911. Wish I could remember them all.

57, if you can find that list again, I'd like to pass it on to my son, who is also a firefighter. He can use it on his sisters' dates until he has daughters of his own.

Ok, since its story time...

I was young, single and brushed off by women left right and centre. The only ones I could seem to form a relationship with were *very* high maintainece and as deep as a kiddies wading pool. Woe is me. I gave up on women. It seemed the easiest thing to do. Besides I figured if I needeed some one else to make my life complete, then I had a problem. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

One day the phone rang. Wrong number. Nice voice though. Chatted for 40 minutes, accidentally met two days later, not planned, and had coffee. The rest is history.

The point being who she was spoke more clearly to me when I could not be distracted by other things. BTW, she was/is easy on the eye, with a great sense of humour and zest for life and an honourable person to boot. So its funny that when you stop desperately searching for something, it may well pop up right in front of you.

If something ever happened to her, I would not look for another relationship because how do you replace perfection? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

We have had ouir share of troubles and strife but I would not swap her or what we have, or even what we've been through for *anything*, it is all a part of the tapestry of our lives together and we would not be who we are without that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Oh yes, i've been there as well. I think every bloke has! Mine decided after a couple of years i wasnt interesting enough, and thought that my best mate would've been more interesting. that was the 2nd time she cheated on me, and she spent the next 18 months trying to get me back.

I however had decided that women werent worth it, and as such was so single and seemingly unappealing to women that most people, my mates included, thought i was gay. Alas, all of a sudden a very good friend of mine (of 4 or 5 years) suggests we have a coffee, coffee turned into an all night chat, which then turned into quite a cheery relationship! so there is hope for happy endings yet http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I found it K below:
A Fireman's Little Girl
I am very dedicated to my work. I wear firefighter shirts every day, even when I'm not on duty. The fire department is my second home, and my second family. It often seems as if my life revolves around the fire department, but it means nothing compared to my little girl. I am normally a very friendly person, but if you hurt my little girl you will make me mad. I know my little girl is growing up, even if I don't like it. She seems to like you, so I'll tolerate you dating her, but here are a few things for you to think about while you're with her:

First of all, I go into burning buildings to save people that I've never even seen before, you can't imagine how protective I am of my little girl.

I once broke a man's sternum by accident while doing CPR to save his life. If that's how I help people what do you think I do when I'm pissed off?

I investigate arson fires. I know exactly what clues to look for to prove it was arson,so I also know how to make sure nobody can tell how a fire started... and I know where you live. Remember Backdraft?

I've worked more car accidents than you.ll ever see, the sight of blood doesn't bother me one little bit.

It's normal for me to carry chainsaws, axes, and various other extremely sharp tools in my car..touch my little girl and me and you take a little ride.

When we burn down a house for training, nobody ever looks in the closets.

I use the jaws of life to tear doors off wrecked cars. They cut though solid metal like a hot knife through butter. So watch your paws or get the jaws.

Sirens and air horns can really muffle the sounds of someone screaming.

Most of my friends are cops, paramedics, or firefighters. WE ARE 911. If you make me mad who do you think you're going to call for help?

I have access to explosives.

I am well trained in emergency medicine. I know exactly which arteries are the easiest to sever and which ones bleed the most. (remember all the sharp tools?)

Even though my little girl insists that you are a nice guy, and not like most other guys, I know better. I was once your age, I know EXACTLY what you're thinking. Because of that I already have plenty of reasons to not like you. It wouldn't take much at all to push me over the edge, and I just sharpened my axe.

So if you want to date my little girl you better keep these things in mind. Fireman are protective by nature, and there is nothing we are more protective of than our little girls. Whenever you're alone with her, you better remember that someday you may be alone with me!

LOL, thats a good one too. Doesn't quite crack me up as hard as the other list though.

I would hope the tougher of you fathers would go easy on me. If she's a sweet girl then I really am different than the other guys. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


For the rest of them...well welcome to the rat race I guess

My dealings with "the boyfriend" are simple. The first time we met I sat smoking cigaretes and staring at him. Did'nt say a word until he was about to leave. Walked up to him quietly and said:

"you break her heart or try any funny stuff I *will* hunt you down like the dog you are"

Every so often since then I say something similar (quietly), or just stare (quietly).

He thinks I am nuts. He behaves. Mission accomplished.

To you younger guys, sorry, but it is a dads job to scare the poop out of the boyfriend. When you get older, become a father to a little girl, and look at the guys she brings home - you too will remember exactly where your mind was.
Tips for impressing her father, don't touch, don't talk, get a haircut, get a good job, dump her & go out with someone else. Dump her nicely though, if you say anything un-toward, look out!

Very amusing tactics! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here's a view from the other side....

(Doubtless you know all this - after all, you must have been in the boyfriend situation yourselves a few times.)

Surely you don't want your daughter to end up with some spineless sycophant?! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

As 'the boyfriend', my motto is "keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer!" I've always made the effort to get along with the girl's father and mother, but also made sure that, when necessary, I supported her if she was having a hard time from her family. Mutual empathy and respect http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think girls often tend to fall for guys who have qualities that remind them of their father. Equally, I can say that my dearest lady was brought up well and shares many of her parents' good qualities, which means I get along with them fine.

Just to change the subject slightly: do any of you have sons? What's your strategy when he brings his new girlfriend to meet you?
