Dad’s unique set of rules for dating his daughters goes viral

A dad has become an internet sensation after posting online a unique set of rules for dating his daughters.

J. Warren Welch took to Facebook about a week ago, sharing the now-viral dating guidelines.

The reason why the post gained so much attention was because the father basically said that his daughters didn’t require his help, implying that they were strong, independent women who could stick up for themselves.


“You’ll have to ask them what their rules are,” Mr Welch wrote.

“I’m not raising my little girls to be the kind of women who need their daddy to act like a creepy possessive badass in order for them to be treated with respect.

“You will respect them, and if you don’t, I promise they won’t need my help putting you back in your place.”

He then finishes the post with “good luck pumpkin”.

The post, captioned ‘I aint raisin’ no princesses’, has already been shared more than 36,000 times.
