Chuck is making sure his daughter doesn't start dating without knowing 3 simple rules.

I agree with him.

Don't text someone to ask for a date/don't go on a date with someone who won't ask you face to face.

You don't go anywhere alone with anyone unless I've met them.

Be gentlemen, respect your date, pay her way/Don't date guys who don't respect you, he should pay for your date...if he doesn't it should be the last date.

I don't know about the "don't text" thing. that's how kids these days communicate.

I like his rules but I'm not as strict about the no texting.  Kids these days only seem to know how to communicate online or by text.  I also taught my oldest daughter that the guy should pay if he asks you out but I also told her that if she got on the date and didn't like the direction it was heading (ie, he gave off the vibe that he may expect something in return since he was treating her) then she should be prepared to say that's ok, I've got my check.
