Meeting the parents is intimidating enough as it is - can you imagine how much more intimidating it'd be if that parent was Rambo himself?
That's what anyone who wants to date any of Sylvester Stallone's three daughters feels.
In the build-up to the release of their new reality TV series, The Family Stallone, the actor's daughters Sophia, 26, Sistine, 24, and Scarlet, 20 have opened up about what it's like to date when Rocky Balboa is towering over your crush.
When the three sisters were asked about their love lives by Hoda Kotb on Today, Sophia told her: "We're single, so..."
Rocky joked: "I'm hoping they turn out to be spinsters. I'm working on that. They stay home forever."
The sisters explained that they never were able to secure a second date, with their tough-guy father scaring away anyone who's brave enough to take them out once.
"It’s very difficult," said middle child, Sistine.
"He’s quite intimidating to most, and most of the time when they come over to meet the parents, they don’t necessarily return, simply because he’s just so scary."
Explaining why he's so intimidating to the men who show up on his doorstep, Stallone shared: "I don't trust their intentions, because I know men."
Funnily enough, the one daughter who seems to have managed to sneak a boy under her dad's radar is youngest child Scarlet, who has a boyfriend.
And not only that, but Stallone is actually good friends with his youngest daughter's boyfriend now.
"Yes, and he was great meeting him," said Scarlet.
"Now they’re best friends."
Her dad joked: "We have matching tattoos, it's great."
Who is this guy who's managed to take on the Demolition Man himself?
If Sylvester is worried about his daughters dating, you can only imagine how worried he is about them being exposed to the entire world on their new family reality show.
"He's very concerned about our safety," said Sistine.
Sylvester added that he's been trying to warn his daughter that they're going to have to deal with the fame that he's been hiding them from most of their lives.
"I said, 'Your quiet time is over, and once you're exposed out there, it's out there.' You're going to have people following you home, guys like 'Hello, how are you?'"
Explaining how he plans to deal with that, he simply punched his fist into his palm.
