Dealing with parents (6)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2007-09-26 03:05 ID:nqLg/G+p

I have a bit of a dilemma.

I have recently taken a liking to this one girl, who feels mutual attraction to me. However, there is a slight problem: her parents are very overprotective and they come from a culture which is very strict when it comes to controlling their daughters.

Now, I do have some advantages: I have gotten the approval of her brothers and of her mother seems to like me, but the main problem is getting the father to accept my wishes to see his daughter. I do speak their native language and know the sensitivities of their culture, so I do know what I'm getting into.

Anyone else have experience in this, or have ideas on how to approach the father? I mean, it's HER choice in the end, but I think it would definitely help my case if I were able to talk to her father man-to-man about this. Any ideas on what I should say?
