Oh my god. All I have to say about the hilarious Funny or Die video "DaddyIssuesDating.com" is that I wish it came out a long, long time ago. Because I'm pretty sure a few of the boyfriends I had when I was younger inspired the d-bag characters in this clip, and maybe watching it would've made a lightbulb of recognition turn on in my head:
Why am I with this loser?
Nah, who am I kidding? I probably would've just shrugged and told myself some lame-o lie, like "Emily" in the video:
"Tripp only invites me over when he's been drinking, but that's just because he knows night time is the most romantic. And he's always really excited to see me ... really ... excited."
If you have/had your own Daddy Issues, prepare to fall off your chair laughing in recognition. If you have a friend with Daddy Issues, I suggest showing her this video. (She won't even know it's an intervention! At first, anyway.) "Dr. Todd Lodge," DaddyIssuesDating.com founder, pretty much sums it up:
"Nice guys are boring. Treat you with respect, unconditional love ... you don't want that. You want a guy who treats you like dirt! You want a guy who fulfills your Daddy Issue."
I know, I know! It's funny because it's TRUE!
Do the girls in this video remind you of anyone? (Maybe yourself?!)
