  • I have 3 criteria:
    1) the kind who will be loyal, no matter what
    2) the kind that is in control of his temper and understands how to be polite
    3) the kind who is willing to work hard to provide.

    These criteria see her taken care of, loved, and in a situation that should ne stable.

    He doesn't need to be smart, or rich, or upper class, or whatever. I don't care if he is a plumbers assistant with an IQ of 85.
    As long as he treats her well and makes her happy, and is willing to work to see her taken care of, I'm ok with it.

      Are you that type?

    • 12d

      yes. i never cheat or betray, i am not governed by my emotions but instead govern them, and i am willing to work hard to make sure my family has their needs met.

    • 12d

      Marry me now lol

  • Rofl. No. I'm not that type of man. I wanted a daughter, as a teenager. If I had one, I would want her to marry a multi-fauceted-strong man with a good job, high-tier skills, social acumen, intelligence, and ignorant in all the right places and knowledgeable in all the right places. A man who was health conscious and takes exercise seriously and semi-religiously. I wouldn't mind that kind of man raising my grandkids. Basically a total drone, but a good quality drone. I'm not a drone.

    I would be very verbal if the guy didn't meet my minimum requirements. Ultimately, she could choose whomever she wanted. Even if it was some fatass, lazy slob who was just a parasite or some criminal. But I wouldn't have to approve, condone, or aid.

    Of course, I also don't believe in marriage. But, small risk to women. If I had a child, I would raise them to believe that they would be better off without marrying and just staying with someone until it became difficult. But, if she did, wouldn't make a fuss.

  • She could do a lot worse than someone like me, that's for sure. I'm not the perfect husband at all, but I don't ever abuse my partner or hurt her in any way. That puts me way up toward the head of the class.

  • I hope she would find someone who loves her and accepts her for who she is as a person. They should be making each other happy and encouraging the other to be the best possible person they can be.

    I do try my best to accept people for who they are and encourage them to do better and accomplish those things they want to

  • Some guy who isn't stupid. In which the definition is doing "stupid things". Where "stupid things" mean inherently self-destructive things, like alcoholism and drugs and stuff, associating with lowlife criminals of that sort.

    I wouldn't want to do anything with that kind of stuff. Otherwise, all that's important is that they click.

  • I'm not gonna restrict the people my daughter is "allowed to associate" with. This is what causes dissent between a child and the parent. The child has been socialized their entire lives around the institutions of her parents she understands the central values of the adults in her life but that does not mean I expect her to conform to them. I will give my child the skills to synthesize her own values but also the analytical acuity to understand why her parents hold they values they currently have.

    It's these external behavior modulators (punishment, negative reinforcement) that prevent the child ever gaining confidence to make reliable decisions themselves. I will not dictate the parameters of someone's life like that. But allowing them to make decisions early on they will gain confidence in their ability to excel as an individual.

My princess daughter with her bitchy princess mentality only needs the best and no less. And ain't no ho gonna be able to shame her about her baby daddy not being able to pay her child support bills cause it will never resort to that.

      Why can't Disney make a movie about that kind of prince charming? :D

      @zorro8888 Yeah I know those masochists and me and you should produce that movie.
      I wouldn't be a racist and kill of the black character either like those evil hollywood corporations.
      If I had a son I'd treat him like the special prince that he is :3.

  • I wouldn't want any men near my daughter -_- ( kidding ) but if she were to marry ( when I have one ) I would hope she would find a honorable, strong and good, hard working man who was christian just like me, my father, my grandfathers and great grandfathers.

    And of course all men will be tested to make sure they are right for her.

  • My daughter's life isn't about what I want for her, If I feel I done my best as a father to her, then rest is up to her. She must make the decisions of choosing a man who is right for her, cause at the end of the day, I am not the one marrying her. When I am dead and gone, and I will no longer be able to protect her, but I while I am still alive can only do my best to advise her, and pass my knowledge and experiences down her, how she uses that, is up to her.

    My roles as father, is to prepare her for the outside world, and not tell her what to do with her life, that's out of my control.

      The role of a parent, shouldn't be about controlling your child, and telling them how to live their lives, it should be about, preparing them for the outside world, give them the best possible chance of surviving the outside world. If you have done that, then you have done your job as a parent.

  • If I had a daughter, I would want her to marry a guy that is like me. I'm not perfect, but I'm much better than the douches out there in the world.

  • That is a very good question... you have me thinking. That's still far away. Yes. Far away... oh god it's sooner rather than later right? Fuck. He better respect her and treat her like a equal. He must be open minded and embrace her family and her values. Motivated and smart.

    On a different note, i have no problem going to jail if he's a fuck job hahaha

    A positive influence
    someone that made her happy and pulled their weight if she was successful if they had kids a stay at home dad who worked part time would be fine id rather she be successful than a stay at home mom with out having built up skills to fall back on.

      Partly I don't want kids i'd rather we both work then have the option to both retire earlier in India or somewhere exotic or go work there on something interesting.
      I can be trusted and can pull my weight but it would take a long time for me to trust someone enough to marry them.

  • Whomever she loves and whomever lovers her back equally.
    I hope that she chooses someone smart, who balances work and life well, is ambitious and accomplished (to match her accomplishments, of course), and also someone who is intrinsically kind and compassionate and treats her well.
    But ultimately it is up to her, not me.

  • I don't have a daughter but if I did, I would most definitely want her to marry a man like my current partner... and... should I have one... he will be her father.

    My son, I definitely hope to still improve myself and as I have discussed with my boyfriend, I fight hard to role the kind of woman I want for him... why... because I can only hope that maybe I'll set his standards appropriately high on what to want in a partner. Don't get me wrong, I'm already reasonably a good woman... but I want him to have an appropriately educated woman. I just don't want him in a dead marriage and I hope that he'll see love role modeled daily so that he never settles like that.

    I have seen so many marriages where the woman is a lazy and discontent stay at home wife... not to discredit the good sort, but the ones who treat marriage like a man to simply live off of. (Sits around smoking, maybe drinking, berates her husband, steals his paychecks... the stories I've heard from both females regaling their bad behavior and the men on the victim side of it are appalling.) That's never what I've wanted to be... and what kind of good woman is truly content with such an empty life?

  • My partner is definitely that type of man. He's super caring and thoughtful. I've been a bit sick these past couple of weeks, nothing serious, but he still wanted to make sure I'm ok and has been pushing me to start eating more yogurt and fibers haha. He's super kind and gentle, gets along with my family very well (not that that's hard but still). If we have a small argument he never raises his voice and he tries to keep his composure even if he's noticeably irritated or frustrated. He runs to the store for me if we're about to cook something and I notice I don't have an ingredient or something. He has even emptied my dishwasher a couple of times, even though he absolutely does not have to do that, at all.
    So yeah. Great guy. I'm happy my first boyfriend turned out to be super lovely :D I think one of the worst things that could happen to someone in the world of dating, would be to have someone terrible as their first. Would set a really bad example for how relationships should work.

  • A real gentleman. Someone who can make her happy for the rest of her life.
    Someone who we can picture being a great father one day. Someone who will come to our house often and talk to us like he's our son. He should have his life together and should be financially stable. He should treat her with respect and love. I want him to be the type of man who I can trust to stay by her side and take care of her. Most importantly, he should be kind and have a good heart.

      @ AperolSpritz i learned parents can't choose who their kid grown up and marry. a lot of girls grow up and end up marrying some like their father. If you teach her the right way she needs to be treated and respected she won't marry someone who's a fuck up in everyway you can think of.

      @ AperolSpritz well i understand it's sad that she really don't have a male role model in her life. Maybe your boyfriend can become the father figure she needs in her life when she gets older. But if she decides to date assholes thinking like most women " I can change him for the better". In reality only the guy can change if he chooses to. But between you and your boyfriend she shouldn't and won't chase those types of guys. Good luck. I hope he goes from your partner to your husband. For your daughter sake.
