Now that I have a daughter of my own, from time to time I think about the kind of boys she might like one day (when she’s 45, of course.)
Now look, don’t go crazy on me. I’m not one of those anti-feminist, uber patriarchal dads. I’m just saying, I have ideas about the kind of guy I would prefer my daughter date.
I wouldn’t even care if he showed up on our front steps with tattoos and a nose ring. I won’t be nearly as concerned with his outward appearance as I am his character and overall sense of decency.
I wouldn’t necessarily care about the guy’s politics or his religious affiliation. We don’t have to vote or even worship the same in order for someone to date my daughter.
But can I tell you what I do care about?
