I do have to say, that all ya all sound like the kind of dad that one of my ex'es used to have. But eventually even he warmed up to me. Treated me with a bit of respect. I think cause he knew I wasn't out just to screw his daughter and move on...
I first met my ex g/fs family at a wedding reception. One of her uncles were getting married, he has 3 other brothers, all were obsessed with MMA, even their grandfather, who I referred to as Mr Miyagi. My g/f had been putting off introducing us (can't think why). Anyway, when I went to the wedding reception my g/f came up to me, and all her uncles and some aunties followed to meet me, having heard lots about me. One uncle said, "you're a brave man coming into a room full of Heaneys (their name obviously)". Without thinking, I said, "well you know what they say, there's a fight at every wedding". Then came the longest, most awkward silence of my life.
My current g/f's dad used to erm, dislike me. I actually started seeing her in secret at first. But then she managed to get me an invite to her birthday party, at her house. I silenced everyone and respectfully asked his permission to take her out for dinner. It was VERY respectful, apart from the fact that I asked him in front of his wife (who liked me), some of her cousins (who liked me), and all of her friends (who liked me), not to mention, infront of her as well. Respectful as it looked, it was really a kick in the teeth. Not many dads would of been mean enough to say no under those circumstances.
My own dad thought it was stroke of genius
It's worth noting that we get on great now, 4 years down the line.
