Every man who enters her life will be compared to you; every relationship she has with a man will be filtered through her relationship with you.

Girls like to talk more than boys and men. It’s healthy for girls to talk a lot, but it can be a problem for you, because men are experts at tuning people out. You have a lot on your mind, you’re less verbal than women are, and all of us, particularly when we’re really busy, have a tendency not to give people full attention. So when you’re together, she’ll probably do most of the talking. Just listen patiently-and don’t try to fake it. Daughters can tell right away when dads aren’t listening.
