Why do men get angry when an older man stares of flirts with their sister or daughter? If they were single and had the opportunity to date an 18 year old they probably would, so why do they hate if an older man flirts or looks at their sister or daughter? Most men would rather their daughter or sister date a guy their age rather then an older man, why? I'm not criticising, I'm just wondering why? Sorry if this is a stupid question I'm just wondering? Thankyou

Men are inherently protective of their girls. This includes sisters, daughters and female friends.
Part of it is because we care. It's also because we know men are dirty little bastards. The stuff that I would do to an 18 year old girlfriend...well...let's just say I don't want another version of myself defiling the girls among my family and friends.
The feeling is especially strong among fathers protecting their daughters. Often, when girls reach puberty and take interest in a boy, we know that the early relationships will fail and she'll be heartbroken over and over again through most of high school. Dads get angry when boys hurt their daughter, so especially in their teens, no boy is good enough for our little princesses.
For brothers and sisters, it's the same thing.
For guys and a girl friend, it's quite different. Often, when guy/girl buddies aren't dating, there is still some level of physical and sexual attraction, despite being in the friendzone. Men act protective of their girl buddies, but more often than not, the guys secretly would like to be with the girl (or at the very least, give her a test drive in bed). So they don't really want other men fiddling with their friends, as there is a certain level of jealousy involved.0
