    Re: Anytime a girl wants to solve her father issues ...

    Psychological issues.

    In a nutshell, girls who grow up without a strong father (or father-figure) in their lives often look for the company of men in psychologically unhealthy ways. They tend to be more promiscuous, use drugs, etc. more than girls who grow up in two parent households.

    Barney, of course, looks to exploit such a girl for his own sexual pleasure.
