I don’t love saying no to guys – especially nice Christian guys that I like just fine.
In fact, I’m rather horrible at saying no in general – and I was absolutely thankful that Dad would do it for me.
When I was 16 the Christian guys started thinking that I was of totally marriageable age and began talking to Dad – or asking me if they could talk to Dad.
To all guys who were cat-calling, whistling, yelling out car windows asking my name, or in general asking me if I liked to party . (Nor did I give them any of the remarkably witty come-backs that my brother always suggested for me after the fact.
I would offer a counterpart to his advice to guys: “Girls! He’s asking for the bar to be lowered until it’s on the floor before he’s willing to step over it. And I’ll be real – there were some serious courtship nerds floating around back then as I assume there still are today. He even went so far as to spell out his future career plans and lay out his financial situation to show me that he could support a wife.
If a guy is too much of a pansy to talk to your dad, say good riddance and be grateful you aren’t being troubled by the attentions of a eunuch.” He also wants girls to always answer yes when asked out. Not an overly impressive attitude, and not a trait that would be in any way fun to have in a husband. Dad has always been big on the concept that you need to distinguish between principles and methods – and there were people even way back then who were getting all caught up on the method . The whole thing was just ridiculous – he and I both knew that what he wanted was a girlfriend for the weekend, but at this particular conference you had to wrap that up in proper “courtship” language.
My response was generally something like, “AAAAGGGHHH!!!!
” although if I had been asked directly by the guy it would have taken me 20 painful minutes to make him understand that I probably wouldn’t go out with him no matter what night of the week he suggested.
