All it requires to successfully date a dad is to follow a few simple protocols and have a bit of patience.
Sure, you have a right to be treated with respect as someone special in their father’s life, but don’t be surprised if they don’t warm to you immediately.
And the easiest way to ensure they stay frosty is to try bossing them around. Just because you are going out with their dad, you can’t stroll around his house like you own the joint.
I have a friend -- let’s call her Jane -- who only dates older men.
The span of time between their respective ages never seems to really matter, as long as they are older.
It’s no big deal, but failure to tread softly can kill off a potentially brilliant romance. This is a concept that is sometimes hard for people who aren’t parents to understand.
