Where’s my daughter?!?


That’s a photograph of the project creator. I didn’t blur it out; that’s how he uploaded it.

  This Project is to develop an App to monitor who my teenage daughter is dating.The first section will consist of a voluntary section to be filled in by the prospective suitor. It will be simply name, age (not birthdate) GPA, hobbies, does he drive and sports activities.The second part will include reviews form past dates filled out by other parent as to the reliability of the person in question.Things like punctuality, politeness and demonstration of respect.Other things such as tattoos or piercing can also be annotated.This is a dating review site for parents.

This whole thing is so adorable! It’s the perfect portrait of an old man shaking his cane at the world while he tries to work out which buttons to press to make his newfangled computer “do the internet”. I hear apps are big now, right? Maybe an ‘app‘ can make sure his daughter doesn’t hook up with some reprobate miscreant who listens to that “inner city” music and wears his pants too low!

So adorable!

It IS a project!!

    “The first section will consist of a voluntary section to be filled in by the prospective suitor” – because no one is more honest than a teenage boy trying to get laid. The next question would be, “How is every boy in your school the valedictorian?”

    I am a computer programmer and a basic webapp form should only take like one week for a one-man team and $1000 to develop AT MOST. P.S. Having some old man breathing down your neck the whole time may make it take longer.

    I am still trying to figure out what that picture is supposed to be. Kinda looks like an armed guy on the back of a truck?

    Sad thing is, I have seen evangelical communities where an app like this would actually work. Some places in the US, fathers really do still have this level of control over daughters, including only allowing them to date within the church.

      When I was in the Middle East I had a girl I was hitting on, who was in her mid-twenties, tell me very politely I was wasting my time because she didn’t have the authority to respond to my advances. I was then handed her dad’s business card and told to discuss it with him.

        Was she giving you the brush-off because she knew her dad would tell you off, or was she interested and really hoping you’d call him and work it all out?

          Kind of neither which is why it was weird. She was very nice and did seem apologetic about it but it was more like I had stopped to ask about a car for sale in her driveway and she was telling me the owner wasn’t home and giving me his card.
