The Girl Species: Girl with “Daddy Issues”


Every girl craves her father’s love.

The girl in this category is particularly difficult to deal with. Whether the father abandoned the family when she was still very young for another woman or he passed away, the absence of the male figure left a big vacuum in the heart of the girl.

So she grows up, looking for someone to occupy that empty space within her. Most often than not, she does not find the right substitute so she makes do with any guy who comes along who shows a little interest in her. What the guy realizes rather late is that, she is hanging on so tight as if her whole world revolves around him and that after a while, it drives him away.

So the story of her life: one guy after the other, falling in love with him because of one reason but falling out of love with him because of the other. All she is longing for is someone to protect her with all that he has, to see her as precious and love her despite her flaws…just like a father does.

The girl with daddy issues usually has esteem issues. Every girl growing up needs to be told and assured that she is perfect just the way she is; that there is no need to work so hard to impress anyone. Without this assurance, the girl believes she has to use what she has to get the attention she craves for.

And since it would take more than a few trial-and-errors to find the right guy, the girl tries to trade affection with her body. She gets compensated with a few goodies like the latest phone or some good food but she still goes to bed feeling unsated.

Such a girl may be seen all over the place but all she is looking for is love. Don’t call for her if you are not ready to fill that empty space within her. But when the vacuum is occupied, she can become the sweetest person ever.

  4. Thank you. You have described my youngest daughter who was abandoned by her father at 13 just when she needed him most. He is a prominent rich man who will not even talk to her on the phone, it has been six years now. It breaks my heart to see her struggle but I will never give up on her. Bless you.

    Beautiful post Joseyphina. Girls need their daddy, as long as their good role-models and loving. Sadly many men are blessed with daughters but they don’t appreciate just how wonderful they are.

      Thanks, Carolyn and very well said. If only fathers would stand up and be the anchor in their father’s lives, girls would grow up to become confident and well-balanced ladies who would later be good mothers. We need them to stand up.
