We can try all we want, try and avoid it, but it's somehow unavoidable. Without even knowing it, girls, we pick men similar to our father.
Being a daddy's girl, that should be perfect right? I'm his little girl, so my ideal man will think the same. He'll protect me, attack anyone who messes with me, and give me money whenever I give him that look.
As there are good qualities my dad has that I always hoped my man would, there are always a few habits or qualities I could live without.
No one is perfect, but you've lived with these habits from your father all your life. Now you have to marry the same guy?
Whether we like it or not, these are the similarities between the two men we love most.
Their sense of humor.
My daddy has always been funny, in this strange funny type of way. I find my sense of humor similar to his, but find my man's to be practically the same. At least I can always have a laugh right?
Their protective instinct.
My men are so protective of me. Neither of them can stand to see me cry and I love it. They will do anything they can to put me first and fight for me.
My dad was always my biggest fan and knew when I needed him to be there for me. My man knows when I need him, and does everything he can to be there.
Their impulse to make you happy.
Both of them hate to see me unhappy. My dad will do the silliest things, like show off stupid dance moves, sing to me, or even send a cute text because he knows I want that. My man is the same way. He will do whatever it takes to make me happy if I'm not, or even when I am.
I found that my dad and my man have some similar interests. They both love working outside and playing with guns. It's crazy how similar our men can be.
In ways, I can see where my men are alike in this category. They make such similar mistakes as the other it's unbelievable. Even so, I love them both regardless.
So don't freak if you're dating a guy that is like your father. If you grew up loving your daddy like I have, you'll know you made the right decision.
