8 Signs That You Are Daddy's Little Girl

8 Signs That You Are Daddy's Little Girl

The best friends we were born with.

Unlike girls who struggle with the 'dad complex' in a negative way, a daddy's little girl has a different complex. The role of the father is now a very important role in her life. Good luck boys it is hard to date those of us who are daddy's little girl.

1. He is always there for you.

Even if you don't want him to be there. They are the type of father's who are constantly involved in their daughter's lives. Even as the grow their father's still attempt to be as involved in their lives as much as they can be. Any time you need to talk you can count on him to be there and ready to listen.

2. You can do no wrong in his eyes.

Well maybe this is only partially true, but just a few bats of the eyelashes and a cute smile and he is wrapped around your fingers. You have that one look that you give him and all of a sudden all is forgiven. I am almost 21 years-old and I can still get away with this.

3. He is your best friend.

You will always have him as a best friend, someone you can hang out with and be silly with and it doesn't even matter. You will always have fun and even though you'll continue to explain the newest "lingo" he will try his best to use it with you.

4. You have someone to be honest with you.

He doesn't understand fashion trends or any of that. He will always be the one to tell you straight up how it is. You friends and mother might gloss it over a little and try to make it seem better than it is. One time my father was like "You can see your bra in the back through that tank top, it looks funny." Yes, my father did not understand the style of tank top, but he told me what he honestly thought.

5. He will help you with your car troubles.

The great thing is you can call your dad up or show him what's been happening. My father taught me how to do a lot of things with my car like change a tire, check the tire pressure, add air to the tires, put windshield whipper fluid in, where to buy power steering fluid, where to put the power steering fluid, how to pump gas (I live in NJ where it is illegal to do it yourself), and so much more. The great thing is if I ask him to help me he will.

6. He called you some goofy nicknames growing up.

I remember my father calling me Michael Bublé, thinking he came up with the name I then grew up and found out he was a famous person. He also called me crazy names like Bubby and Goofy Gazoo. These are names that no one else would ever use.

7. You will never be allowed to date.

This one is just funny to me because growing up my father used to tell me that I was not allowed to start dating until 3 months after I was married. I could not get married until I was 30. So how do I date or even get married is the question? Well in his mind it isn't going to happen.

8. The bond is unbreakable.

Time goes on and people separate, but a real father always finds a way to make himself involved in his child's life. You will grow and so will he, you may never be in the same place at the same time for years due to distance. But a father daughter relationship is strong and has this bond that no matter what happens cannot be broken.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

Your Relationship With Your Parents Changes Over Time, Here's Why

Four ways in which your relationship with your parents change from age eighteen to twenty-two.


Over spring break I had time to think about all the different ways in which my relationship with my parents has changed throughout college. We've definitely had our ups and downs, but as graduation grows closer, I take time to note how far we have come. From freshman to senior year of college I have undergone a drastic change in how I appreciate my parents.

At eighteen, I wanted to get as far away from my parents as possible. I was going to college in order to be independent, study, and hopefully make a career for myself. Nothing could stop me and no one could give me advice. I was stubborn and hungry to explore the new life that awaited me. I didn't realize how hard it would be being on my own for the first time ever. I had never even been to camp let alone moved to a different state not knowing a single soul. I was happy for the new opportunities but quickly realized how much I had been sheltered. Initially, I resented my parents for my little life experience going into college but as the years have passed I realized I can't be so immature to put my lack of knowledge on them. As an adult I now make things work and advocate for myself. Your struggles as an individual humble you so you can come back together better and stronger than before.

Here are some ways in which the relationship between you and your parents change:

1. You don't live together 24/7, so you appreciate time spent with them.

When you're not sharing a space with your parents and they are not there to nag at you about chores, you finally get to know them as people. As an adult yourself you begin to relate to them in ways that weren't possible in childhood.

2. You realize what is worth fighting over and what is not.

You have learned how to live on your own and set boundaries. As an adult, you come back home knowing what can be improved upon within the relationship and what are things you can let go.

3. You have experience with adulthood now and can understand how really great they are.

Adult struggles are real and now as someone older and wiser, you have experienced a great many. You then begin to realize how your parents took on all these responsibilities plus the responsibility of raising/providing for you. You don't know how they did it, but suddenly you're mad at sixteen-year-old you who fought them on everything.

4. They are your biggest support system in wanting you to achieve your dreams.

There is no one quite as invested in your dreams like your parents. When you have no one to turn to and nothing to give you that extra boost of motivation, parents are there. They may not be perfect but they love you more than anyone so call your parents.
