Funny question. I mean that in a positive way though. I am a father of both boys and girls and one of my daughters asked me this very question.
It is because we were once young men as well and we know what kind of mind we had and expect that today's youth have the same thoughts. We do not give our daughters enough credit to make the right decisions even though we know they will remember all that we taught them. Once my daughter brought this to my attention and we discussed it, I was able to back away and watch instead of trying to be the intimidator father knowing that everything will turn out okay in her relationships.
Perhaps if people taught their sons to be respectful towards women, rather than letting them fly off watching porn and treating girls like crap, then they wouldn't need to worry about their daughters being treated so. Most fathers indeed are scared because they used to treat women that way, and now that they have a daughter, all of a sudden, it's not cool. Hypocrisy at its best.
Men have a natural instinct to protect, and they see another man in their daughters life as a threat. I think it is inevitable, and yes, it may make things more difficult on you and potential boyfriends. But when your father, like most fathers, realizes that you are old enough to make your own decisions, and when you choose a boy that is 'good enough' for you, he will ease up. And you are only 14, so I'm sure that he is not ready to let you 'grow-up' just yet.. Give it time.
Hey I kinda know what you are going through I am 17 and I don't have to worry about my dad I have to worry about my grandfather he lives right down the street from me and any boyfriend of mine he meets he doesn't like but the thing is you are only 14 you have a bunch of stuff going for you and messing with boys your age aren't always looking for a relationship and your dad knows that and he wants to keep you from getting hurt for ex. You go out with a guy for about 2 weeks and then the next thing you know is they ain't interested in you any more they want someone else. Believe me I know I have walked those shoes wait until you are a little older to rag on your dad about being a little to protective because if the right guy likes you enough he will put up with what your dad has to say or do. And what your dad is thinking is he is protecting his little girl until she is able to protect herself hope you had some help from this answer.
My dad says it's because he knows what it's like to be a teenage boy.... He says he just wants to keep me from getting hurt. But honestly, sometimes I feel like he's just trying to keep me from having another man in my life. He just HAS to be #1. But at the same time, I know he's trying to protect me.
I think its because they were boys once themselves and are on to what boys try with girls.
That is wrong the father likes the boy and wants him to date his daughter and is very respectful to the boy. But the boy's father will not let the girl go anywhere near his son.
Fathers remember what they were like when they were 14. Young and horny. They want to protect their daughters from any guy who may just want to get her into bed.
Fathers tend to be very protective of their little girl, they know that boys only think one thing, and that because they were boys believe it or not!
Obviously your dad understand that boyfriends lead to sex and I can almost guarantee that he just wants to preserve you because he understand that virginity is a gift, and you should too, not saying you already don't, just letting you know!
Because they care for you and don't want you to get into a wrong boy's hand!
Why are fathers so protective over their daughters when it comes to boys? Because they know most teenage boys are with most girls just to get in their pants and the number one reason he doesn't want to see his baby girl pregnant AND doesn't want to raise another child:)
I really don't get it, my dad don't even let me talk to boys. My mom says she don't care because we're just talkin. My dad don't let me talk on the phone with boys.Now can you please tell me what's wrong with that.
My dad is so over protective its beyond a joke :( , I can't even go out to my friends anymore hes that protective :O
Becoz he loves you and not all guys are good.. Is he need anymore reason to be so protective?
Ohmygosh, Its sooo annoying. But I get where he is coming from, he doesn't want anyone to hurt me, but thats what life is about taking risks.
I did not date when I was in high school. But I cannot wait to see the day when I personally see a married mother be protective of her son when his girlfriend comes over.My mother died five years ago, and I my dad started dating, I would be questioning that lady, seeing if her body language is honest.
Fathers are just naturally more protective of daughters because thats just kinda what they do. They want to make sure that the guy can take care of you and that you will be safe with him. I suggest dating a guy that your parents like, that way your parents wont have to worry every time you leave the house.
Because of boys like me. And Males in their teens are going thru raging hormonal changes and sometimes can't control their urges, Fathers were teenagers once.
Because your father was once a boy and he know
just what is on their minds because he know what was
on his mind at that age
There protective because he thinks you might get pregant I have bf and my dad doesnt know about it . He is trying to put presure on the boy so he will take better care of you and knows that you are in good hands.
Because we know what boys are thinking
