is it an american thing for dad's to be complete assholes to their daughters boyfriends

Well in my family (I'm English) all males in the family be intimidating at first until they know if the lad is alright at not. But when I met my cousin's boyfriend I was only a dick for like an hour until I realised he's awesome.

Its not so much assholes, as being overprotective.

A father's son is his lump of clay to mold into a manly man. It wont be easy, it wont be fun, but that lump will become a man.

A father's daughter is his spun glass princess and if you so much as breathe on her too hard then he's going to rip off your head and **** down your neck.

I am pretty sure most father's nowadays have no interest in seeing their daughter end up on the Mtv show "16 and Pregnant" or any variation thereof.

Any father that doesn't take an active interest in his children's lives, especially his daughter(s) isn't much of a father to begin with.

Rather he be an asshole, protective, father than a dead-beat asshole who doesn't care that his daughter is out spreading her legs at the drop of a hat.

There's a difference between taking an interest in your daughter's love life, and threatening the guy with a shotgun. One ensures she doesn't end up on 16 and pregnant, the other ensures she has as much sex as possible just to get back at you.

Yeah, but it will take her a while to finally get someone brave enough to chance a meeting with that shotgun in order for her to have sex.

**** dude, all it takes is "follow me to the bathroom" inn the middle of a movie. If the guy was smart, he chose a movie he'd already seen so it wouldn't matter.

lol since when is that the mentality of a guy who is about to have sex in a theater bathroom stall? "Damn, I hope I don't miss important plot points while this teenage girl is bouncing on my crotch"
User avatar #142 to #93 - lolollo (04/18/2013) [-]
Since when is what what mentality? The very next sentence describes exactly what I was trying to say (just how easy it'd be to get the guy in for sex) so I'm seriously confused.
User avatar #147 to #142 - guymandude (04/18/2013) [-]
What I was saying is that the mentality that I described is NOT how most guys would think. I'm saying that he wouldn't give 2 ***** about missing parts of the movie. But I guess I get what you were saying now - "if its a good movie then he should see it before his mind is clouded with popcorn and boobs, because then he won't care." Yes? No?

It was actually more of a half sarcastic note at the "rules of dating." I have yet to see Ironman 3 (because it's not even out yet), yet if (when) I see it, if an opportunity arises to get some ass, I'm just gonna go see the damn movie some other time to pick up any missed plot points during the whole ordeal...

I'd be surprised if it's not normal elsewhere to sit down the boyfriend and have a chat to make sure he won't knock your daughter up or won't hurt her, etc. That's just basic fatherly protection.

That said, I'm reasonably sure the introduction of weapons to the mix was an American initiative. It just seems like something we'd think of, you know?

Bonus Story time! My dad decided to clean his AR-15, Glock, and H&K pistols, since I was home from college on break at the time I pulled out my H&K .45 to join in, when a kid was going to be dating my sister and he had a particularly....unsavory reputation, shall we say. You could practically hear his knees knocking together and later on he turned out to be a halfway decent kid.

i can understand dads being cautious and stuff but i've never really heard of anyone being sat down and questioned really, even when my sister started dating. dad's just try to be friendly and stuff

My dad and uncles always interrogate new boyfriends and girlfriends. They had my cousin's girlfriend in tears the first time she met them. She swore she was never going to another family party ever again. Now they're married with 3 kids and she organizes a good portion of get togethers.

It's not a standard thing elsewhere? The idea of your date's father sitting you down and making sure you don't get any funny ideas about getting his princess pregnant or hurt?
