    I am a single Dad trying to be open minded about my 15 year old daughter dating.I don't know if its just the Dad in me but i think I am being over protective I am worried all the time is that normal

    You can never be to over protective of a 15 yr old girl. At 15, all children are raging hormones. Your daughter will be no exception. Unless you want to be a single GRANDFATHER, supporting your child and grandchild, protect, protect, protect. Remember when you were 15-19. You sniffed everything your could. A girls's protective daddy meant you didn't get any and your girl daughter needs that right now.
    She'll challenge you and "hate" you, but in the end they are still your daughters and they'll alway love you. Welcome to the worry stage of teenagers.
    My mother always said, "Boys are easier. You only have one penis to worry about. Girls, you have to worry about every penis in town." She was right. My daughter is 25.

    Good Luck

    Be friendly to your daughter. Talk to her as a friend and express your concern politely and calmly.
