Rules for dating my daughter application

Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me.

Marine, gathered these rules together from around the Web, updated them a bit and sent them to me. Rule One: If you pull into my driveway and honk you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure not picking anything up.

However, his post about the rules to date his daughter set me to thinking.

If we have rules about how the young men are to comport themselves when they plan to date someone's princess, shouldn't there ALSO be a few regarding the behavior of the young women hoping to date our handsome princes whom we are sending out into the world to slay the dragon, protect the castle, defend the honor of the princess whom they hope to someday receive as the queen of their castle?

It was by far the most viewed and “shared” blog post so far in the life of this project.

In fact several people even asked about a shirt with those 10 rules printed on it.

If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter’s body, I will remove them.

Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.

Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with either your bra strap showing or your blouse 2 sizes too small, and I will not object.

However, many of you have older daughters and you are in the middle of this tumultuous time of life. This picture will be used on the cover of the upcoming book Don’t let this sneak up on you. We have two kids, Brittany (25) and Trevor (21) I have been a Young Life leader for over 30 years and currently serve as the Regional Director for Young Life in Los Angeles.

I would like to offer a couple of thoughts in this regard. I have a passion for my family and have learned a few things along the way.
