i'm closer to mom, my father was the classic father who steps out early on the morning to work and came back at home on the night

The problem with that is now that he's retired, I love my dad, but i feel him like another person

I'd like to think I'm closer to my mom but I can't recall the last time I've sat down and had an actual conversation with her.

I lived with my parents but it was my grandparents that raised me and that I'm closer to.

I always thought it was my dad that I took after since I copied a lot of his habits. But after growing up and taking care of them I realize I'm not hardly like either of them. I was always the one that stood out the most in my family. My family is a bunch of different types of apples, and I'm the orange. lol

My mother, but that's not to say that I'm not close to my father too. I just happen to talk to her more.

And good luck with that research paper. Just try to do your best. Your loved ones would want you to succeed.


Thanks on the research paper. All but 2 are progressing smoothly.

They found out what was wrong with my father. It still isn't good, but at least it isn't as bad as they previously thought. Worst case my father becomes paralyzed and blind. Multiple Sclerosis sucks. They though my pops was going to keel over because he kept passing out at random times and loosing all nerve control.

This is better I guess? Still sucks as my dad is incredibly active. Loosing his mobility would greatly upset him.

My dad is very extroverted and load, so I don't relate to him very much.


This is pretty much the same relationship I have with my parents. The only difference is that my mom isn't shy like me. She's willing to speak up when its needed. Even then, I still have more in common with her compared to my loud dad.


I am in the exact same boat as you.

Im closest to my mom because i could tell her anything and she was always there for me. I was never close to my dad, like when i was a kid i used to bother him a lot (punch him, scare him, make him mad) because I didn't know how to talk to him (I was a weirdo) and even now im not close because I always felt like he was judging me and disappointed in me, its probably not true but i just feel that way.

Definitely closer to my dad although I honestly feel like I don't know that much about him except that he was a soldier back in his old days and his soldier personality has been etched into him to the point where he raised me and my brothers like soldiers.

I am a lot closer to my mom. She took care of me and has listened to my problems since I can remember. My dad worked too much. I basically saw him for a couple hours a night growing up, and then had him at home on the weekend. I felt like he was always so serious about everything. He tried to teach me how to work by taking me to his properties and doing yard work there. I mean, it made sense, you want to teach kids that they have to work for things. But I was (and still am) an extremely sensitive person, and that kind of work stressed me out a lot. I dreaded working outside. I can't blame him though, he did what he thought he needed to do.

Because he was such a serious person, especially growing up, I was always afraid to ask him how to do things. I mean, some really simple things that everyone knows how to do when they're young. Like shaving-he never taught me what to do. I just used his electric shaver, but I was afraid to ask him how to use it, or how to do it the old fashioned way with cream. He also never once talked to me about sex or masturbation.

I see him every month and a half or so. He lives literally 5 minutes away. But I am 25 years old, and I feel like I still can't talk with him honestly or openly. I am actually tearing up as I type all of this. I guess I really needed to say something about it.

On the other end, my mother was probably too comforting. She would pretty much let me do whatever so long as I behaved well. She knew I was responsible (as far as not getting into trouble), so she would sleep after I got home from school, and I would just play videogames or eat for hours. She never pushed me to do anything. But she would at least listen if I had any distress, and I've always felt like I could talk about anything with her.

So I guess they were both not so great for my development. My mom was too easy on me, dad was too hard. The result? I am too afraid to do almost anything now. As an adult, I of course take responsibility for my life, but your childhood definitely molds you.
