A Dad's Message to Anyone Who Dates His Daughter
A Father's Message to His Daughter's Future Dates
Every parent is a bit overprotective when it comes to their daughter's dating life. But dads especially shudder at the thought of some boy hurting their baby girl. In hopes of keeping the heartbreakers at bay, software engineer and performance poet Jesse Parent shared a special message to any boy (or girl) who decides to date his daughter. Though the message started off with some violent — albeit sarcastic — threats, Parent ended it with some very sweet words of advice to any future suitors.
"Love her, befriend her, protect her. Be there when I can't," he says. "And when my body gives up to the grave, let the grin that eternity carves into my face be a reflection of the peace that your love brings to her."
