Daddy issues = a girl having a subpar relationship with her father (abusive to her, absent, alcoholic or drug addict, witnessed him abuse her mom or other ppl)
U hear guys and girls talk a lot about a girl having "daddy issues" and how it impacts their choices in guys, and their behavior about sexuality, dating, relationships, marriage, having children, and how they parent...
...for the negative rather the positive.
Do you think the effects of a girl having a negative father figure is over-exaggerated by people, or do you think a female having a negative father figure (or lack thereof) is truly THAT impactful in her relations with men?
Please vote and reply as detailed as you choose (using examples if you want).
Thanks for answering. 8-)
P.S. Men and their "daddy issues" will be asked on a separate question at a later time.
- Yes, daddy issues are exaggeratedVote A
- No, daddy issues are really that impactful on a femaleVote B

Everyone is different, I do think that how a womans father acts and treats women deeply impacts many women, however, it doesn't happen to all of us. My dad has done some pretty dispicable things to our family and I feel that it deeply affected my sister but it hasn't affected me at all. My sister pretty much thinks all men are bastards, whereas I am able to step back and take everyone on their merits...maybe that is why I'm studying to be a psychologist and she isn't lol.0
