Worst Of The Worst: Fathers Share Stories About The Worst Men Their Daughters Have Dated

The protective instinct of a father is an unwavering force, especially when it comes to their daughters. Even as their daughters grow and go off on their own to navigate the complexities of adulthood, fathers often find themselves in a unique position—striving to shield their grown children from harm and adversity, no matter what challenges may arise.

A second user said, “He ran from the cops for weeks after failing a drug test (he had been caught selling drugs in a school zone years ago). He ended up hiding out in my house without us knowing, and then the cops came to the house and arrested him. She is still with this a****ole too.”

A third user added, “The one who got drunk and drove with her in the car resulting in an accident that left her with a compound fracture on her arm. Mainly because after the accident, he pushed her down and stepped on her broken arm that wasn’t in a cast yet.

A Redditor said, “My daughter actually married and had a kid with this guy who had already done two stretches for assault with a deadly weapon.

This poster said, “I had a 16 yr old stepdaughter meet a 27-year-old drug dealer at a party. She immediately moved into his trap house. She OD’d on fentanyl and was sent to the hospital. It was there that I found out his true age and address. I left, went directly to his place, and banged on the door, not knowing who or how many were going to answer. When he did, I told him to get her belongings, and that next time, I wasn’t coming alone. I returned to the hospital and dropped her bag onto her lap.”

This Redditor said, “Kid was about 17. Got drunk one night, smashed up a liquor store, then showed up at our house at about 6:00 AM and threatened my wife and me with a butcher knife. Not for any specific reason other than he knew how badly he’d messed his life up. Not sure what he expected we’d do about it.”

A poster shared, “They’d been friends since they were 12, started dating when they were 20, and then he enlisted in the Army. He was all around a pretty nice guy, and most of the family really liked him. He comes back from his first deployment and is a completely different person. He’s more violent, paranoid, and overly protective, and it became too much for my daughter to handle, and they divorced.”

This user added, “He was so gross. He didn’t shower or brush his teeth. He also didn’t brush his disgustingly long hair or wash his clothes. His family was very poor, but that’s no excuse for being unclean to that extent. We hated him because of how gross and rude he was. He told me he had no intention of dating my daughter for much longer. I responded, “Good,” and he broke up with her the next day.”
