Daddy Issues

I’ll sleep with you, but I won’t date you. There I said it. Do you want to know why I won’t date you? It’s because of my dad.

People that disagree with my sexual promiscuity are all quick to accuse me of having “daddy issues” and to a certain extent, they’re right. You see, I don’t fuck around because I’m desperately trying to get the male attention my dad never gave me growing up. My dad gave me all the attention and love I needed. I would say that he treated me like a princess, but that’s misleading. To be treated like a princess would mean that I would need someone to take care of and look after me, which couldn’t be further from the truth.

He treated me like a warrior, for lack of a better word. He taught me the skills I need to take care of myself and then instilled in me the mentality to fight for what I want. How exactly does this transition into ‘daddy issues?’ My dad raised me to be independent and not to settle. I know what I want and I know what I deserve. My dad likes to describe the current generation as the ‘pussification of America.’ Gone are all the strong, alpha males, replaced with man-bun rocking, politically correct, hipsters. Now, guys want to talk about their feelings more than I do. They aren’t embarrassed to cry or show emotion. I can’t handle it. I don’t need a guy to take care of me, I can do that on my own, but I sure as hell am not going to take care of a guy. I don’t want to wear the pants in the relationship; I want us to fight for the pants.

I’ve slept with my fair share of guys, and I just can’t help but think about how much my dad would hate all of them. If I were to introduce any of them to my dad, they quite literally might shit their pants. They wouldn’t be able to hang and my dad would be so disappointed that I was wasting my time on someone who so clearly wasn’t worth it.

I like sex, so I have it. A lot. If I were to limit myself to fucking only guys that challenge me, that are strong and self-assured without being cocky and douche-y, to guys that my dad would approve of, well, I’d probably still be a virgin. My dad’s approval means everything to me and I can’t bear the thought of bringing home a guy that would just disappoint him. He wants the best for me and I love him for that. Maybe I do have “daddy issues” and relationship issues, but it’s because I know what I’m worth, because my dad ingrained my worth into me. So ya, I’ll fuck you, but I sure as hell won’t date you.
