The rules of dating my daughter
This light hearted shirt is bringing thousands of Dads further into the important conversation of their role with their daughter. , I wrote a funny little blog about the “rules for dating my daughter.” I chuckled as I wrote it and never dreamed how much buzz it would receive.
Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been.
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. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, all-seeing, merciless god of your universe.

Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay.

Some of the feedback I received was around the actual rules. ” “I need that shirt” and “Dear God, get me that shirt.” Now, I am not in the apparel business. I am a Young Life Regional Director trying to reach lost kids in LA.
Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.
