Hopefully your dad can have a sense of humor about it. If not, at least your boyfriend does.
Theres a difference between having balls and being plain rude, I'm pretty much an anything goes kind of person, but if my future daughters boyfriend said this to me, i would take it as majorly disrespectful, and very arrogant, and a sign that he shows no intent to be on good terms with me. And it would probably make me want to get rid of him, one way or another.
@squideth Agreed. But also why should a boy be treated like a criminal for liking a girl? Maybe her dad was a date-rapist but that doesn't mean the boy is. Seriously, a grown man throwing his weight around like a schoolyard bully is a pathetic sight. Kudos to the boyfriend for mocking what should be mocked. The great Dara O'Briain has a similar bit from the other side, as a sensibly relaxed father confronted with a priggishly manly boyfriend. This post is only four years old, yet from the thumbs ups you'd think it had been posted in the fifties.
Don't get too attached to your boyfriend. If this is how he normally acts, he probably won't survive a second encounter with your dad (that is, assuming he even survived this one).
