Which is where daddy issues come in. I alone cannot vouch for the fact that from what I have observed, women that want a real man and describe him, actually are yearning for a daddy that is taking care of them.
They want a man that is handy and can fix everything. They want a man that listens to them and remembers everything they have told him. As a little girl, you are looking up to the grown up man in front of you who has everything straight in life according to her little Disney fantasy world and daddy does anything to please his little girl. He buys her stuff, he takes her on trips, he plays with her and he's basically there for her. But he's also there to call her out on her bullshit, but still provides her with the unconditional love of a parent. He is her rock, where she can always lean on when she has to cry because Bullshit A or Cowmanure B happened to her and daddy can make her feel all better. When she can't manage something or has stress and feels like shit, go to daddy for the good feelings. Daddy is the place where no bad stuff happens, and daddy can carry the weight of the bullshit she accumulates and passes on to him. It's the worst when all this is taken for granted without any token of appreciation required from the asshole that dumps the shit on her rock which simply accepts it because, daddy's little girl.
Which is where daddy issues from my opinion stem from, and why women who had a shitty dad that did everything for their little girl have only raised a brat that expects the same from her boyfriend/husband. If you lack anything that her dad has done for her, inexcusably you will get shit for it, while at the same time you are required to deal with the shit in the same way like her daddy did, meaning carrying the stress that she is experiencing on top of your own stress in your own personal life. Which is why there are cases when women simply dare to dump a man that has lost his mom or dad and is in the deep well of sadness for the coming weeks.
When little girl has a punctured tire on the way home, she doesn't take out the spare wheel and change it herself, which even I could do at the age of 10. No, twisting a bar, loosening and tightening 5 bolts and carrying a wheel is too much asked from a woman. Better call daddy to drive over 30 miles to do the crap that she is capable of doing. Daddy comes anyway, because little girl is helpless, which is all his own fault. Because we are raised in a society where little boys are raised with the tougher hand than girls, because boys should walk it off and girls should be treated like princesses.
Beware of the daddy that does anything for his daughter. A good giveaway is to ask on dates how her father is, talk about their memories, what she has done for her, and disguise it under the cloak that you would like to know what her dad is like, and then just ask some bullshit questions about her mother. Because the most spoiled brats out there are the ones where e.g. daddy changes checks their oil, changes their summer tyres for wintertyres, and for them is was all magic and taken so for granted, not even the words "Thank you, dad!" could ever come out of their mouth to repay the hard work that a man has done for them.
These women are a lost case, and they have this lifestyle engraved into their minds since the days they were born and only engraved it deeper throughout puberty. You will never ever satisfy a woman like this, and it's better to go ahead and look for a woman that respected her father. One which is not afraid to make his daughter cry and send to her room to deal with her own shit for everything that's her own fault from which she is supposed to learn to deal with.
