I have a question for you.
If a female’s father was/is absent from her life, what makes her think a man will stay and love her forever?
Does it make sense when you think about it? How could you expect a man to stay and love you forever if your father couldn’t be in your life?
Have you ever thought about that? How something so small, could be leading to a chain reaction that some people might be missing out on. Notice how females have grown throughout life, without a father. Most have had long lasting, positive relationships with men. However, some will admit to missing the father foundation they were supposed to have. For many, the reality of not having a father around can be brutal period of time.
“ I don’t think like that. I haven’t had my father in my life. I don’t think it has an effect in your life. Anyway, it goes to show you how you really want a man to be.”

“ …My father has always been in my life; I feel like my opinion will be biased in a way. However, lots of women who don’t have active fathers in their life have other male role models. Such as uncles or coaches, who they can base what a good man is…”

If your father the man that was supposed to teach you how to love and how a man supposed to love you… morals and values of this world, and everything that goes along was not in your life or inconsistent throughout your life…how can you expect a boy, guy, a man love you and stay forever?
Most females dream of getting married, having family, and finding never ending love. Some show no compassion or ties to the guys they can have relationship experiences with in their life. Most young women/ women will admit that they don’t know what love is. Some say they don’t know what to expect from love, because they believe its related to their father not being around.
“Find the right one. A father not being in a woman’s life sometimes doesn’t predict how a man is going to treat his woman!”

“It can predict if a man will stay in a way; it just really depends how a female was raised. I know it affected me with my mom being gone sometimes when I was younger. If you see other people in the world happy and love, you believe in love in your head, and that you can have it to no matter what. It’s kind of like a hope thing. You hope and you think you can have it because other people have it. That’s what make it like that. When my dad was killed it affected me. I didn’t know how to deal with boys and men. I thought by them telling me pretty and stuff like that it could have been love. I thought by someone telling me they wanted me, and wanted sex with that it could be love, and they’ll stay in your life. But then you’ll realize it’s not love and then I’ll move in my life.”

According to the 2011 United States Census Bureau, the percentage of children living with their mother without a father present varied widely among race and origin groups in 2009, from 8 percent for Asian children to 50 percent for black children. Seventeen percent of non-Hispanic white children and 26 percent of Hispanic children also lived with their mother only.
What does a father not being present in a female’s life have to do with a guy staying in her life forever?
If a female’s father the man who is supposed to be in her life forever was and/or is inconsistent, or didn’t stay around… what makes a female think a man will love her forever that doesn’t have to stay forever? Should she perceive things differently about men If her father was not active in her life or inconsistent? Does a father not being a female’s life mean nothing? Can she grow with a man possible get married, and be with him forever without him leaving her life? Do you know anyone in your life right now like that?
These boys turn into young men— these young men turn into men—before, after, and in between some become fathers—then half of females become fatherless daughters. It’s a cycle.
Your choice. You Decide.
Maybe you haven’t thought about this. Re-read the question. If a female’s father was absent from her life what makes her think a man will stay and love her forever? Let it soak in your mind. What conclusions do you come with? Do you think it would be kind of crazy for a woman to think a man would love and stay with her forever even if her father wasn’t in her life? Would girls, young women, and women not be in so much frustration, heartbreak, and pain from relationships if this idea was conceived? Does a female’s father not being in her life really have no effect on her actions, trials, emotions, perception? Can it not correlate to how she receives, and accepts love from men? What do you think?
So what’s your answer….
