Do fathers have a hard time talking about love with their daughters?


I recently posted 2 questions about advice that moms would give sons about love and advice dads would give daughters about love. There were 19 comments posted regarding mother/son relationships vs just 5 comments posted regarding father/daughter. Do you think this difference is an indication that dads don't know what to say about love or that they just have a harder time communicating with their daughters? Curious what everyone has to say about this. Thanks!

    I am sure your 3 girls appreciate how lucky they are to have a dad that openly shows his love for them. Lucky you, too, Abby ;)

    ...possibly, dashingscorpio. I still think most dads will admit to being puzzled by females in general.

    Congrats for having that relationship, edhan! I agree that if the communication is established at a young age it may continue through the more challenging years.

    Thanks for sharing, Hariom. My dad (76) has 1 son and 3 daughters. He will tell you his daughters gave him no choice but to listen and learn about female ways. Now he has granddaughters that he has stopping in and talking about their love lifes :)

    Tough for Dads to watch their little girls become women. It is inevitable so best to enjoy it ;)
