This man had the best first date ever — and not with his wife

There's something special about the relationship between a little girl and her daddy. It colors every relationship for the rest of her life.

The first man a girl bonds with is her father. U.S. pediatritian Dr. Meg Meeker says a woman is subconsciously drawn to relationships where she is treated like her father treated her mother or her. This is why the father – daughter relationship is so important.

The best way to be a great father is to give your daughter your time. Time is more important than any material thing you can provide for your family. It shows love. Your time doesn’t have to be in the form of elaborate outings or fancy vacations. Make any time you spend with your daughter special by letting her choose the activity or just snuggling up close.
