  • You know, I don't have a huge number of women to reference in this case, but the one that comes most to mind is this girl Madison, a girl who worked for me as a part-time nanny. When she was 11, her father renounced his rights to her and her brother in exchange for immediate forgiveness of all of his back child support. She was in the court room when it happened and talked about how she was completely shocked when he made that choice. To this day, she hasn't spoken to him but she admits that she'll look at his Facebook page from time to time and wishes that she could message him to ask him if she could come over.

    I'll say this -- Madison is an incredible girl. She not only does part-time nanny work, but works full-time as a CNA where she cares for the elderly at an assisted living facility and even has time to do spot work for a modeling agency. She's responsible, funny, caring (my girls love her), and I just see nothing wrong with this girl at all. Does she have daddy issues? No doubt -- we talk about it all the time. In fact, she has said that when she sees me with my girls, she gets a bit jealous but at the same time, she wrote this wonderful declaration in support of me during my divorce.

    I mean, this is just one example and maybe Madison is an aberration, but I almost think that having a crap father made her stronger.

  • I'm not a guy but I don't think it would, no. If you're working through some psychological problems your partner should be respectful of that and if they can, help you work through them.

    Some guys might be uncomfortable with you calling them "daddy" and all of that, and if they are, then you shouldn't do it. But having some issues is no problem, everyone has some kind of issue.

  • That's an interesting question, and quite a deep one I think. First, the daddy issues which can be massive in a girl's mind and then whether it's a deal-breaker... I'd say it depends how the daddy issues are expressing themselves - very openly and obviously as part of a huge emotional trust thing, or just wanting someone 20+ years older for support as a "daddy"?

    • Oh no no not the 20+ older for support... not sugar daddy things 🙊
      Just the part of a huge emotional trust thing. Thank you

    • I've got some more info on this I could share probably best if you follow/PM me

    • Thank for the offer sir

  • Depends on what sort of issues. If it's an open wound from her father figure that hasn't healed, it wouldn't necessarily be a deal breaker, but she'd need to heal so that I could have a defined place in her life rather than just as a substitute for paternal validation.
    If she *has* recovered and it's just a residual kink, no problem at all.

    • Okay, thank you sir 🙃

  • i guess it depends on the extent of the daddy issues. but it's certainly a red flag and then it's a matter of gauging how much those issues will impact a relationship

    • Thank you for the opinion sir

  • As a man I didn’t have daddy issues but I suffered abuse as a teen so I really understand where girls are coming from. I’ve actually had quite a few relationship with girls who have had this or similar issues. It honestly makes no difference to me, I think it can actually make you closer in some respect. As a man could be the one that she turns too for help and support. As long as the guy is genuine , understanding and patient then I can’t see a problem with it whatsoever! Hope this helps!

    • Thank you a lot sir for great opinion

  • Can you elaborate? when I think daddy issues I think of a woman who is a misandrist, aka who hates men and has issues with them in many ways. Delusional man hating feminists come to mind.

    • Oh no no, really not that. Some might be, but that's not the main thing... it's just coming for not exactly getting all the attention from your father as a child... it often leads to trust issues too

    • I suppose, but at the same time you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that there are millions and millions of amazing loving, caring fathers out there.

    • Oh no no of course. Now my father is more "avaliable" and I am aware he loves me and cares for me. It's just things that happened that made me wanting this attention... a father figure more since he wasn't here much...

  • Some guys might be comfortable with it. It's a big world, and there's someone out there for everyone.

    • Okay... thank you sir

    • I'm reminded of something- a lot of people pick partners who remind them of a parent.

  • It depends. If she starts to call me Daddy, in that case its a deal breaker. However if she has daddy issues by simply missing him, doesn't like him or else, that's not a problem.

    • Oh okay thank you for the opinion, sir

  • Depends... What issues... Generally though, if she has daddy issues, she hooks up with a guy just like her dad... I'm a great dad, so girls with daddy issues would probably not choose me. :)

    • Oh no... I don't hookups anyways...
      And my father is a great one. I would want a man great like him, all I want is a simple man who could protect me and take care of me... so it's not true to all 😶

    • Show All
    • Oh wow thank you that's very nice 😶

    • YW reach out anytime

  • Nope, not for me. I'll also take into account to what extent her daddy issues are.

    We all (well most of us anyway) have issues with our parents in one form or another. Daddy issues is just an easy "catch" that people use that are too lazy to figure out what is / are really the issues.

    • No... no that's really not the case. I do love men and I do want a man and need one in my life. And I'm not that, I save for one man only.
      But some are these and some aren't I guess...

  • Nope, actually can be a turn on depending on how she treats it.

  • If you are a licensed psychologist maybe you could ask something like this I’m going to assume that you Are not a licensed anything so that is a silly question

    • I don't see why it is a silly one... I'm just asking for the opinions if it actually a thing that matters to some people... like asking if it's a deal breaker when your partner has depression, do you really have to be a licensed physcologist to ask that?

    • Show All
    • I never said they were the same..

    • What I meant was... these are two issues that effact the person and most of the time, the people surrending him. All I'm asking is it's the people's opinion, if they are willing to put up with it. But it doesn't seem like a silly question when you refer to despression, so why is it one when refering to daddy issues... and why should only licensed psychologists ask these questions?

  • What kind of issues? How would these issues manifest?

    0|0

    • Well for me it shows as being a little too emotional and with a bit trust issues... something like that

    • *shrugs* it depends. Could be problematic if it happens too often and is too intense.

    • Oh okay thank you
