Yesterday I posted the first 5 Daddy Rules for Dating and as I promised, I have 5 more to round out the list to an even 10. These rules are designed for the boys who might be interested in dating my daughters. But, if you are a dad and want to have some rules ready for when your daughters hit the dating age, this is a good list to go from.

Actually, my daughters are not quite at that dating age, but I wanted to be sure that they knew about these rules and could point those boys who are interested in them to something clearly laid out and defined.

So, boys beware! I’m spreading these rules as far out there as I can!

Please find the last 5 of the 10 Daddy Rules For Dating. So daters take note! The rules have changed!

  • Date Until She is Finished 1 of 5
    Date Until She is Finished
    Even though you might be the most popular guy out there, the only way that you can date other girls is if it is ok with my daughter. You will continue dating her until she is finished with you. And remember, if you make her cry, I will make YOU cry.

  • Wait Patiently 2 of 5
    Wait Patiently
    As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not act impatient. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process than 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 or mow my lawn?

  • Appropriate Date Locations 3 of 5
    Appropriate Date Locations
    The following places are NOT appropriate for dates with my daughter: places with beds or sofas or anything softer than a wooden stool, anywhere dark, anyplace with dancing, holding hands or general happiness, movies with strong sexual themes or romance but any movie about a chain saw massacre is just fine.

  • No Lying 4 of 5
    No Lying
    I may look like a complete bumbling, middle-aged, ignorant idiot, but on any issues related to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of the universe. With anything related to my daughter, I am the omnipotent, ruler of everything that I see and that includes the shotgun, shovel and five acres of land behind my house should you EVER lie to me about anything.

  • Be Afraid 5 of 5
    Be Afraid
    I frequently get flashbacks. And they are violent ones. So, when you pull up in your car, exit it with your hands in the air without any quick moves. Be sure to speak the perimeter password clearly and loudly and also announce that you have brought my daughter back safely and EARLY. There is absolutely no need for you to come inside. And, the camouflaged face in the window is mine!

Ok all of you eligible batchelors, you had better have read these rules if you come within 100 yards of my house. In fact, I will require you to recite them from memory. One mistake, you can come back in a week and ask me to date my daughter. Two mistakes, come back in a month. 3 – in one year and more than 3, I own you.

What rules do you have related to dating of your children?
