My father used to always tell me that I’d better marry a good lawyer or doctor who could take care of me.
That’s honestly never what I had in mind, but he seemed to always think that nobody was ever good enough for his daughter.
I’ve dated a lot of interesting guys over the years but most of them ended up being scared off by my father. I try to talk some sense into him, but he always says he can’t help being protective of my life. He says none of those guys were ever good enough. I guess he’s right considering how they cowered away from his threats. Eventually, I met a real great guy who happened to be an HVAC technician. I didn’t care what he did, but I was impressed with his work and knowledge of heating and cooling systems. He had such a passion that really showed. He genuinely cares about the people he works with and always tries to do as much as he can to help people out. He believes in pushing for energy efficient HVAC systems and improving people’s lives. He also believes that everybody should have access to proper heating and cooling. My father wasn’t very thrilled with him at first until he started helping my father out with his HVAC system. He even got him a smart thermostat as a gift and taught my dad how to use it. That really got them to start bonding, especially when they started watching football together. I have to say, I found myself a keeper.
