Im 26 my boyfriend is 27. We have been dating over 7 years. My dad and I are very close. He had a couple beers after work tonight and told me that my boyfriend asked for his blessing to marry me! He was so happy and excited that he started crying. He said he was sorry for telling me, but he couldn’t hold it in. He was so touched that my boyfriend asked for his blessing. Like I said we are very close and tell each other everything lol. He wouldn’t tell me when, where, or how because he said he didn’t want to ruin anything else!
Now I know, it’s 2017 a lot of people don’t ask fathers anymore for their daughter’s hands, but I’m old fashioned and that alone made me tear up.
That at being said I’m going to be (hopefully) getting engaged soon! I’m writing on here because I can’t tell anyone I know right now. I have to keep the secret quiet! I’m so happy!

I’d be pissed that my Dad told me… but then I’d be pissed my Fiance asked for his permission regardless.
Anyway, you’re not me, so congrats!

Oh, how very sweet! Sounds like your bf is also very traditional. But, dad . . .! They say women can’t keep secrets!

Thats so exciting. My FH asked my father too, but that is probably because he knew it was important to me. I would be a bit annoyed if my dad told me bc it would ruin the surprise. Instead, he told me after.
Regardeless, it is very exciting news!

It’s sweet that you and your dad are so close. It’s sweet that he cried. It’s even sweet that he has a big ass mouth. 😄Happy soon to be planning!
