    I loved all your responses and have no doubt that your daughters will bring home "good guys".
    I also know that most of this is tongue- in- cheek because I've also read your posts in other threads. Not one of you would really kill a boy for "not being nice" to your daughter.
    I admire your enthusiasm though!

    My daughters are 32 and 30 now. The oldest brought home a few trolls in her teens. She's now married, has 2 little boys, a great husband, good job and is more Conservative than I am.

    So, don't worry so much, your girls will be ok in the end and you won't be sitting in prison watching reruns of "Tru TV".

    Yes, It was quite an experience to have raised four kids, one male and three females that have my attitude and a mind of their own. Yes, their past dates can consider themselves lucky to be called survivors. Three are married and the fourth is to be married in April.

    Why not just tell them you hope things turn out better for him than they did for her last boyfriend?

    Hardly. Fathers almost always seem to like me. I actually had a grandfather of a girl I was dating use the "I have a bunch of guns, don't hurt her feelings" line on me recently. He was an old NYC detective and he and I got along great, and I felt like the line was somewhat obligatory and in good fun. The point is, you guys aren't intimidating people.

    can't make that assumption based on forum posts, or even what people look like. Roy Nelson doesn't look like a fighter with his appearance but he is very dangerous. You don't know the background of those fathers. Just saying

    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

Help them through their teenage years to avoid the negative peer pressure that is so pervasive these days (easier said than done I know). Teach them to be independent and think for themselves (even if what they think isn't what you'd prefer). Treat your wife, or women in your life, the way you want boys to treat your daughters, they learn a lot by that example and it establishes what a good relationship is. Girls with self-confidence and a positive image of men/women relationships will chose boyfriends that treat them with respect and reject those who do not.
    How pedantic

    Re-run on the Ten Simple Rules for Dating My Daughter

    Rule One:
    If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

    Rule Two:
    You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

    Rule Three:
    I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.

    Rule Four:
    I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

    Rule Five:
    It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

    Rule Six:
    I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

    Rule Seven:
    As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

    Rule Eight:
    The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

    Rule Nine:
    Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

    Rule Ten:
    Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.
    Holy smokes that is funny. Best post ever

    Im curious if you are a father yet? Speaking for myself, ive made a few references to guns and even been shooting in the backyard when a date came calling. Bottom line most of what a father says isn't meant to intimidate. Its just a way to let the boy know how much you care for your daughter. These responses are hilarious to those of us who have been there. As for threats? I never threaten anyone. I also dont underestimate "out of shape middle aged men" with daughters.

    Almost everybody makes assumptions based on what people look like. I am keenly aware of how violence works; I don't underestimate people. Most people aren't that dangerous, however.
