Like the girl? Slow your roll. Before things get heated, you have to win over her protective papá. He knows your moves and motives…remember, he was you once. Here’s how to become “el hombre que se la merece.”
Do Laugh at His Jokes
Fake it ’til you make it dude.

Do Find Common Interests

Just because he’s from Peru, it doesn’t mean he likes ceviche…he could be allergic to fish.
Do Get Out of the Car to Pick Her Up
He won’t think you’re James Dean cool if you honk or text her to come out.
Don’t Forget to Greet Him
A simple “hello!” for her dad will do. Nothing worst than when a dude comes into his house and pretends it’s his kingdom.
