observation and sudden revelation

You know why fathers are protective of daughters usually? becauase they know how men talk.

Unfortunately for them, they get to know about it when they cant do anything about it.

A consultant (woman) comes to meet one of the bosses. The whole department takes note of how she looks.
Per se, an average looking woman in her late 20s dressed in regulation black suit (including coat, poor thing)
One guy (father of a 2yr old) remarks - "shes good eh?" to another, just behind me. There are only two of them, and he other guy gets a bit uncomfortable after a millisecond of interest.

Not because Im there. They dont know I heard em. But, I realise, because he has a teenage daughter.
But then, he cant change anything. Can he?

Welcome to the great Indian doublestandard.
Same way-single men have a very different notion of the kind of gal they want for a girlfriend vs. a wife. The girlfriend preferably should be the party hopping type, while the wife should be a sati-savitri. Sheesh.

A mirror to the self!
Its quite a weird thing (actually not quite so weird), but the guys who are most 'protective' about their daughter/s are the ones who were the worst when it came to behaving with women in their younger years.
They basically see themselves in the other guys shoes and then realize what they would have done. And what they would have done is not something they would actually be proud of today. But now the shoe is on the other foot, and so they fumble around making excuses about how protective they are about their daughters.
Makes sense actually. Unless you have been there and done that, you would not really understand how bad/good things could be, right??
