Mine sucks because he's very homophobic and racist. Frankly, it still hurts me. What have your experiences been like?
patmos9990 saidI live in Texas and my dad lives in Ohio but we still talk several times a week on the phone. Every October for his birthday we take a trip somewhere together. I've taken him to play pool and bingo at the gay bars and he's fine with being their. He always asks about my friends but never specifically asks if I'm dating anybody. All in all, I think it's a good, healthy relationship.
Jockbod48 saidI'm coming from a situation that is a little different, in that I was raised by my grandparents and great-grandparents. They were strict and were perfectionists, but loving and kind at the same time. My grandfather was a fine example to me of what a man should be. He was the model of integrity, brains, style, savior-faire and he taught me how to work & study hard, and have a full, happy life - simultaneously. He's gone now and I miss him. I think of him every day.
