How to Find Out if She is a Daddy's Girl -- What are the Signs


In response to Tammy Swallow we decided to do this hub. We thought we could 'do it' like Miss Olive told us, and we went for it.


  • When meeting you she wants to introduce you to her dad.(smart)
  • When she met you she said: You smile just like my dad...
  • The day after marrying Peter, SHE tells him that her father gave the okay. "Now she told him!!"
  • If you have a handyman problem like a broken lawnmower she tells you to call her dad
  • If she reminds you of the times when she used to sit on her dad's lap and now is on "yours"
  • When she starts talking like this: "I remember when my dad..."
  • "My dad taught me how to drive at 15, 16"
  • If dad died young, she will fall for any loser who knows how to talk to her
  • If by hugging you, she will lean on your chest
  • If late at night she tells you: " That's it?"
  • For fathers day she buys sane pants for you and her dad.
  • When she says: "This puppy we just bought don't take s## like my dad"
  • When you have a mechanical issue with your car: "Just call my dad and save money"
  • When your first son's name is after your Dad in law, logically.
  • When she sees you falling sleep on her after a 12 hours day work, and tells you to go to bed (that we can take)
  • When she thinks twice on trusting you on Painting your own front porch
  • If she wears your work long shirts, after having a Shrimp cocktail for dinner.
  • If her dad is a Veteran, beware, she will want you to be her drill Sergeant
  • If by looking into your eyes, she wants to look for answers, wondering why the heck did she marry you anyway.
  • If last but not late, asking you to move near her parents, after your 30 years of marriage: "Dad might need me, he is almost 80"

Well, this is just an example of so many, where you can relate or have a chuckle. After all I was mamma's boy and still am. Gotta hurry up in finishing this hub. She might call, just to have a long conversation...L-O-N-G enough!

Sunnie Day, I was supposed to be a daddy's girl too and never got the opportunity. So I love when my little girls act like daddy's girls!!

Now, I can see there are plenty of signs, some more tell-tale than others. I think it's a good thing when someone turns out to be a daddy's girl because it probably means she has a good daddy. Thanks for sharing, my Lord.

Also, what Ardie said. Mamma's boys are cool, but not the real thing. ;)

Not that I didn't know it already but according to your list my daughter is definitely a Daddy's girl. I would have thought you wrote this about her! Fun hub.

Some of the ones on the list I don't fully understand the relation to being "A Daddy's Girl," however I get the feeling that may just be me. Overall though a very nice hub and great topic. +up

HI Ardie,

You make sense to all of us and we agree with you. But we give some space for the guys being mamma's boys..right?

Sunnie Day,

Thanks for your visit, and we undertand your words and we want to say hi to you! You are a sweet lady and it shows.

Yes Tammy, sure you can Link to our hub, whatever you think is better for both of us. We wrote this as a response to your mamma's boys hub, Thanks again Tammy!

Haunty or bela' You got a point brother,

This reasons are from experience from our sisters, ex wife and friends... we just wrote what came to our memory. Thnaks for your awesomeness too.

Cool poetic fool!

Now you know where you stand, and we wrote as we said from real experiences and some can relate and others probably not..but it was fun, Thanks for commenting!

Hi Melissa,

I enjoyed this one. I was a daddy's girl but daddy died too soon. I was only 10.

I am closer to my mom than my dad, but I will say I want to live near my Mom...

I had to laugh when I read the comment about cars. Dad is a mechanic so he wasn't willing to get anyone else to fix ours. Yet at the same time, working on our cars and anything else that needed fixing means time he does not spend on things that make money, so...

Thanks so much Gypsy Rose,

Didn't know your dad passed away when you were 10, No wonder you found your soulmate and ran away to Latvia!! Thnaks for the warm comment!

I had small children before I got to be Daddy's girl, but that was alright, at least it finally happened and stayed that way until he was taken from this world.

Great hub. Beautiful.

After reading tammyswallow's engaging hub on mama's boys a few days ago, I saw your hub being linked to her hub and decided to read your hub. Your hub on Daddy's girls is entertaining. I am quite a Daddy's girl but when it comes to my future finacee/ husband, I know how to treat him very well and never compare him to my dad or talk too much about my dad to him and all. Even my dad is very thoughtful and will undoubtedly give me and my future man some necessary space - my dad himself told me. Fetching hub. Well-done!

Thanks for SHARING. Interesting. Voted up

Lol! In other words you are a dad's girl but wanna keep it as though you are not... especially for hubby. Interesting though, how different cultures deal with this issue. Thanks for stopping by my friend.

You are very good in understanding the sensitivity of a woman who is well nurtured by her father. A father who loves and teaches his daughter is a sensitive one. And a woman who has been well nurtured by her father is able to have security and sensitivity to her man.
