One woman explained that she is happily single and admitted that she’ll stay that way until she finds a partner who will love and protect her like her dad always has.

Ash Bartolo posted a cute video to her TikTok account that has earned praise for setting high standards in today’s messy dating world. In it she shared one way that her “fix-it” dad takes care of her.

“My dad mailed me a LAMINATED peice of paper to leave in my car wit hall the details of our insurance company + a list of dotpoints of all the things I should ask in case of an accident…” she wrote.

“If you can’t take care of me like my dad does, then it’s a no,” she added.
