I agree! OP should tell him amd reaffirm it with his actions that he respects his daughter and will not let any harm come to her. It's a fathers job to scare the living shit out of you before allowing you to take her out. He has spent her whole life taking care of her and has to clean up after a guy breaks her heart, its natural to be protective of her. Lets face it he was a guy and remembers that no one ever looked at a girl, turns to the guys and says, wow I would totally buy that girl a slice of pie and a cup of coffee! More like I want to give it to her until her toes curl!
Actually... there was a story on the news a few weeks ago where a teenager went to see his girlfriend. Her dad answered the door and pointed a gun at his face and told him to leave. He refused, and the dad shot him in the face. Thankfully the boy is alive, the bullet grazed the side of his head.
I wonder if I am the only one who thinks this is stupid. I mean, sure, every parent wants their kid to be treated well by their partner, but waving guns around? really? Doesn't he trust his daughter to pick good people to be with? that kind of stuff would end up just chasing away potential boyfriends because it's so obnoxious and dumb. What happened to just sitting down with the person and telling them to "treat my child right?"
Speaking as a father of a beautiful girl, that's the point; to scare away any potential boyfriends that would break my girl's heart. If it doesn't scare him away, maybe he really cares for her. My daughter already knows a gun will be nearby when she brings home any potential suitors. The "treat my daughter right" conversation will happen with a little proof that I'm serious nearby.
Seriously!?? What is it with the stereotype of fathers threatening boyfriends. It isn't reasonable to threaten to kill someone for fear they might break your daughter's heart. She has to have a bf sometime and people break up - it happens. It is ridiculous that he got so hostile towards you. Sheesh. I mean you are his daughter's friend, she chose you. It doesn't always work out but she has a say in this too - he should respect her choices.
Relax, no matter what he says he isn't going to shoot you. Treat his daughter with respect and he will eventually stop acting so obnoxious towards you.
Good opportunity to show him all the reasons not to shoot you and why his daughter chose you!
