my dad was exactly like that for the first 2 months of us going out (thankfully he wasn't afraid of my dad and 8 months have gone by and we're stiil together.)
My dad was there the first time we met, and my bf has alot of common background with my dad and is always helping him on the farm where we live.
Dad would have been alot worse than the rules on here, except for the fact that my bf is NOT one of those ones who walks in with his pants practically round his ankles. he doesn't think he's "gangster" or i wouldnt have said yes in the first place :L
My dad has now learnt to trust me, even though both me and my bf are only 14
