It primarily means you have or feel some kind of neglect emotionally from your father and seek a father figure verses an equal in a mate. Someone to take care of you, sometimes controlling - but not always.

It means the qualities you look for in a man are more daddy qualities in the way you want to be treated. You are the child.

Those are usually the girls who are attention whores, and will go from guy to guy, whoever gives them the most attention.

I think men and women have this problem. They believe that a partner has to unconditionally love them no matter what they do , just like a parent is expected to love their child. I think they can be devoted to a relationship devoid of sex.

You're right, and I don't like speaking to women like I were speak to a child.

In every relationship my best friend has had since college and on, he would speak to has GF as he would a child, and she would do the same back to her. I love my best friend and all, but I can't stand the way they would speak. It's absolutely annoying and I can't bring myself to the way they would speak.

And I treat my GFs as equals. I do not like acting like a father towards women, and nor am I really controlling.

This.

They usually go after older (Often MUCH) older guys, and don't go for being treated as equals, more someone to take care of them (Not just money)

BIG difference from 'Gold Diggers'

Sometimes Spoiled, Sometimes abused, sometimes molested... Runs the gambit from what I see...

Good post.

My take is that parents have a responsibility to raise a child into a person they can respect and who they can trust is capable of taking care of herself. If they did not do their job, then I believe there are "daddy issues." In order to do this, they not only need to discipline the child, they also need to avoid imposing on her. Some parents see both as a necessary part of raising children, which in that case is no longer discipline but punishment and control. Other parents are very good about not imposing but make the mistake of not disciplining.

Yes, that is pretty much what the term means.

To be quite honest, I don't know why women label themselves as having "daddy issues" because THEY can't get it together in their life. My father was hardly there in my life and when he was, he was so drunk he didn't remember and I never wanted a man as a father figure. I had one father and that was enough for me!
