I will be the first to admit, I am a self proclaimed daddy's girl. He's my best friend and the first person I want to talk to about anything and everything. So I'm kind of an expert on anything you should expect if you date a girl who's as close to their dad as I am. If you're thinking of falling in love with someone like me, you should probably read these seven facts to prepare yourself.

1) Her dad will know everything about you.

From where you live, work, hang out, or even which bar stool you sit on at your favorite bar, he will know. Maybe you should reconsider your life choices if you’re a person of habit, because he will leave no stone unturned.

2) He always hates you.

Even if you have gained his trust to the point where you consider yourself in a serious bromance with her old man, he still hates you deep down. You took his baby girl. You have more power than almost anyone to hurt her, and that’s not something to be taken lightly. There’s a good chance that when you two are dude-ing out, drinking beers and watching football, he’s really just keeping you close enough so that if you hurt his daughter he doesn’t have to chase you very far. If I were you, I would make sure you’re wearing good running shoes before head to her place.

3) Watch what you say about her dad, because a true dadd'y girl doesn't keep secrets from him.

Papa Bear will always be numero uno in her life. If you insult him, adios muchacho.

4) She is always comparing your actions to his.

Do you want to make this relationship work? Then you had better start studying daddy-dearest. How is he with money? Is he a man of few words or is he a charismatic old bird? Does he cook? Is he good with cars? I'm not saying be the reincarnation of him, but try and get your head around his demeanor. To her, daddy is the embodiment of how a man should act, so if you want an easy way to win her over, be like him.

5) You're absolutely, positively, never good enough for her.

I'm sure you understand that you're never good enough for her in Papa Bear's eyes. Are you a doctor? Not good enough. Have you cured cancer? Not good enough. Do you take care of orphaned children and sick puppies in your spare time when you're not running for president or fighting off terrorist attacks? Still not good enough. Get used to it, and don't complain.

6) If you ever, EVER hurt her, you're dead.

It's really that simple.

7) If she loves you, he'll love you.

In the end, if she really, truly loves you, he will love you. Of course he always hates you, but he'll love you for making her happy. If you treat her with respect, he will respect you. He will never be happy about losing his little girl, but dads want their daughters to be happy more than anything. Now, just make sure if you're asking for his blessing to marry her, take him out to a really nice dinner first.... but remember those running shoes if things go south.


Hopefully, this little list prepares you for what to expect before you start talking to a daddy's girl. It's pretty cut and dried; just don't hurt the girl. If you really like her, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

I'm The College Girl Who Likes Trump And Hates Feminism, And Living On A Liberal Campus Is Terrifying

I will not sugarcoat it: I don't feel safe on my own campus.

I will get right to the point: being a conservative on a liberal college campus in 2019 downright terrifying.

At my university, I'm sure about 90% of the population, both students and faculty, are liberals. They are very outspoken, never afraid to express their views, opinions, and feelings in several ways. There are pride events for the LGBT community, a huge celebration for MLK day, and tons of events for feminists.

Then there's the minority: the conservatives. The realists. The "racists," "bigots," and "the heartless." I am everything the liberals absolutely despise.

I like Donald Trump because he puts America first and is actually getting things done. He wants to make our country a better place.

I want a wall to keep illegals out because I want my loved ones and me to be safe from any possible danger. As for those who are genuinely coming here for a better life, JUST FILL OUT THE PAPERWORK INSTEAD OF SNEAKING AROUND.

I'm pro-life; killing an infant at nine months is inhumane to me (and yet liberals say it's inhumane to keep illegals out…but let's not get into that right now).

I hate feminism. Why? Because modern feminism isn't even feminism. Slandering the male species and wanting to take down the patriarchy is just ridiculous.

I hate the media. I don't trust anyone in it. I think they are all biased, pathological liars. They purposely make our president look like the devil himself, leaving out anything good he does.

I will not sugarcoat it: I don't feel safe on my own campus.

I mostly keep my opinions to myself out of fear. When I end up getting one of my "twisted" and "uneducated" thoughts slip out, I cringe, waiting for the slap in the face.

Don't get me wrong; not everyone at my university is hostile to those who think differently than they do.

I've shared my opinions with some liberal students and professors before, and there was no bloodshed. Sure, we may not see eye to eye, but that's okay. That just means we can understand each other a little better.

Even though the handful of students and faculty I've talked to were able to swallow my opinions, I'm still overwhelmed by the thousands of other people on campus who may not be as kind and attentive. But you can't please everybody. That's just life.

Your school is supposed to be a safe environment where you can be yourself. Just because I think differently than the vast majority of my peers doesn't mean I deserve to be a target for ridicule. No one conservative does. Scratch that, NO ONE DOES.

I don't think I'll ever feel safe.

Not just on campus, but anywhere. This world is a cruel place. All I can do is stand firm in my beliefs and try to tolerate and listen to the clashing opinions of others. What else can I do?

All I can say is... listen. Be nice. Be respectful of other's opinions, even if you strongly disagree. Besides, we all do have one thing in common: the desire for a better country.

Dear Young Voices Of America, Stand Up, Speak Up, And Do Something

Our time is now.

374

Dear young voices of America, I think we can both agree that we are sick of being told we are America's future while simultaneously being told our opinions don't matter. Now I personally do not listen to the people that tell me I'm better seen than heard; however, I know there are people that are a little timider when it comes to raising their voices. I am here to encourage you to be loud and speak up on topics that matter to you. There is no better time than the present to make your voice heard. Whether you are advocating for change in your school or the government, your opinion matters and is relevant.

We are the future of our country. How are we supposed to evoke change and reform if we can't have our voices heard? I call bullshit and I think it's time to take action. Even if you're the first or only person to advocate for your cause, be that person. Don't be afraid of anyone that tries to stand in your way. The only person that can stop you from speaking up for yourself and your cause is you. No matter how many nos you have to hear to get a yes or how many doors you have to knock on to get someone to open up, never give up. Never give up on your cause, never give up on yourself or the people you're representing, just don't do it. There is someone out there that supports you. Maybe they're just too shy to raise their voice too. Be encouraging and be supportive and get people to take a stand with you.

It is never too early or too late to start thinking about your future or to take action. But don't hesitate to say something. The sooner you start speaking up, the sooner you have people joining you and helping you, and the sooner you start to see and experience change. So get up, make that sign, write that letter, make that phone call, take part in that march, give that speech. Do whatever you feel fit to get your point across. Shout it from the rooftops, write it on your profile, send it in a letter, ignore everyone that tries to tell you to give up. Maybe they don't understand now, maybe they don't want to listen, maybe they're afraid to listen, but the more you talk about it and help them understand what exactly you are trying to get across, they will join you.

Even when it feels like you have nobody on your side but yourself, I am on your side. I will cheer you on, I will march with you hand in hand, I will write letters and make phone calls and help you find your voice. My life changed when I found my voice and yours will too.

So dear young voices of America, the time is now. Your time is now. Don't be afraid of the obstacles that you may have to face. Someone is out there waiting for you, waiting to grab your hand and march on with you. As Tarana Burke once said "Get up. Stand up. Speak up. Do something."
