A man is dragged online after confessing to a one-night stand with his daughter’s best friend.
User u/Affectionate_Tea_852 drew the ire of the internet after sharing his story on Reddit’s TrueOffMyChest forum on June 26th. In his post, the divorced dad explained that his daughter had a “very pretty 21-year-old girlfriend” who he “got along with.” I don’t fight back,” but now regrets his decision to spend the night with her.
He wrote: “If I were younger I would totally date her.
“She’s my type. Blonde, tall, cute face, friendly etc.”
Although the woman has always been “nice to him,” they recently started flirting.
He wrote, “She started calling me daddy via text message, she said ‘Your daughter is so lucky I wish you were my daddy.’
“She texted me at night to ask me a question (it was an excuse of course), I responded to the question but she kept the conversation going.
“She said, ‘I’m in bed right now but I can’t sleep… Honestly, I’d like a hug.'”
The poster said he’s “not a horny guy who drools on young girls” and that the woman is his daughter’s only friend he finds attractive. Although he is dating someone else, the man wrote that he doesn’t consider the one-night stand with his daughter’s girlfriend to be cheating because he and this other person are not yet an official couple.
However, he is afraid that his daughter will find out about the affair.
He continued: “Yesterday she suddenly said ‘we need to talk’ and that scared me to death.
“Basically, every time I see her, I’m like, ‘I hope she hasn’t figured it out, I hope she hasn’t figured it out, I hope she hasn’t figured it out.'”
The post received a lot of attention from Reddit users, garnering over 12,000 upvotes and almost 3,700 comments in less than 24 hours.
For a 2021 study, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology surveyed 263 college students to assess how often people felt regret after a one-night stand. Between the ages of 19 and 37, reportedly 37 percent of women and 20 percent of men regretted a night of casual sex.
Researchers found that women are more likely to regret a one-night stand because of concerns about sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy. However, the “quality of the partner” also played a role. If the participant found their one-night stand partner physically attractive, they were less likely to regret the encounter.
Reddit users had little sympathy for the man, and DanielleDrs88 said: “There is no legitimate excuse to fuck your daughter’s boyfriend.
“It doesn’t sound like you really have any regrets, either.”
Esmifra agreed, writing: “You have chosen to escalate things.
“It was a conscious decision that you had enough time to reconsider that you decided against it.”
Many users warned the man that family secrets have a way of coming to light.
“As a woman, I tell you: women talk!” said no-mathematician678.
“You can 100% trust your daughter to find out that her friend you banged won’t keep it a secret for long,” Bikingsol0 wrote.
“As the daughter of a creepy dad, she won’t look at you right away,” warned redditforagoodtime.
While others shared their own stories of broken parental relationships.
“I work with a girl whose father did something similar to her when she was in her early 20s,” Bonzyyio said. “She erased him from her life. She just told me about it last Father’s Day. So disgusting.”
While cocomimi3 commented: “My dad did this to my best friend and we were both 18, I found out a few years later and let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.
“I’m 49 years old now and I don’t speak much to my father. Let’s just say I don’t speak to him at all.”
