Today, I got a Facebook message from a cute guy I used to work with. He admitted to liking me, and when I asked why we never hung out, he told me that my dad, his boss at the time, threatened every guy I have ever worked with. FML

Just wait until your first date OP, your dad will show up at the door with a gun

Without knowing how old the OP we don't know if the dad was being protective or overprotective of his daughter. But especially dependent on the type of business it is, he's protecting the workplace from drama should they fight or break up. But overall I agree, awesome dad.

If men are old enough to work for OPs dad I think her dads over protective

In many states you can legally work at 14 so we have no idea at all. Besides it is better to have an over protective dad than one that doesn't care.

in most states it doesn't mater how old you are if you are related to your boss and aren't working in a field that us dangerous.

Are you kidding me? He's a total asshole.

I'm with 68. Being protective of your daughter is great, even being a little over protective isn't the worst thing ever. But this dad is threatening people, and not even just anyone, but his employees! You cannot threaten your employees! That is harassment / assault and it is illegal as well as being an asshole thing to do. You can be protective without being a jerk to others.

all of you guys thumbing down comments where they say the dad is out of line; I'm pretty sure you guys would be pissed if your parents threatened any person that had any interest in you to the point they couldn't flirt or go out with you. just saying.

I wonder how many counts of potential (battery and) assault that would be?...

Well, hopefully you don't have to deal with your dad doing that anymore, and at least you know the guy liked you! Still, bummer for missed opportunities.

What missed opportunity? He was probably messaging her so they could reconnect. Maybe they'll go on a date now that OP's dad is out of the picture.

At least daddy loves you, he just doesn't want you to get hurt.

He doesn't want her to get loved either.

It may seem sweet on the surface, but it's better if a parent provides guidance rather than trying to stop the inevitable. If she's getting involved with someone who's clearly dangerous, then it makes sense to interfere, but if every guy who might try to talk to her is threatened, that's just stopping her from learning how to form normal relationships with guys.

That's the same logic some parents have used for locking their kids up and not allowing them to go anywhere. Terrible logic, really. If daddy loves me, he lets me make my own decisions - within reason.

Well look on the bright side, you survived teenage pregnancy (I'm assuming).

I'm going to assume OP can handle her own. Automatically coming to the conclusion that OP would be pregnant without dad is a little much.

Can you blame him? He probably still sees you as daddy's little girl!

I hope your dad has a good explanation for this one...

What other explanation is there besides being protective of his daughter?
