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