    I never knew my biological dad.
    Is anyone here close to their biological dad?
    I really have never met any gay guy before that was...
    but I am sure there are a lot out there...

    I was never close to my dad. He was in military and was always disappointed at how bad I was at sports and I never tried hard at it feeling no matter what I did he will always be disappointed. We just could never bridge that gap.

    I know my biological dad, but we aren't close.

    We clash a lot, and we never see eye to eye. I tried for the longest time to give him another chance. But it never worked out, and after one too many disappointments, I gave up. I still love him, but I honestly don't care whether he is in my life or not.

    I'm reasonably close with my dad, but not nearly as close to him as I am to my mom. (I'm out to both of them, by the way).

    Ckfeezy that is so cool!

    I have a lot of straight male friends that are really close to their dad and I was thinking how I have never met a Gay guy that is.

    Some of my friends talk to their dad about important things in their life, do you?

    I am not close to my "Mother", so I never told her anything important about my life...

    So it is weird to me to see how close some of my straight friends are to their family.

    Also did your dad raise you?

    Super close to mine. He wishes I were more like a stereotypical boy: sports, girlfriends, etc etc, but he realises he has no choice here icon_razz.gif

    Anything big I talk to him except for any relationship advice because he's still uncomfortable with the whole me being gay thing. He just needs time.

    I'm extremely close to my Mom and my brothers and sister. I was raised by both of my parents. I didn't know till I started meeting other gay men that so many have relationship problems with their Dads.

    For the first years of my life, my father was an alcoholic nightmare who would yell at me and hit me for paranoid reasons, even accuse me of doing things I never did. He also abused my mother, which I saw. He stopped drinking and all, but the only time he's tried to connect with me was to use me as the middleman to try and get back with my mother. So, not very close to him and don't really want to be.

    You are so lucky!!
    That is really cool man..
    Yeah my bi and gay male friends all have dad problems ...

    While I was in school, I worked at Hollister and I met a gay guy that disliked his dad so much, he went and had his last name changed.

    Like he really paid and had is changed...

    So do you want a family? I mean to find a husband and adopts kids and whatnot?

    I am close to both my parents, but I haven't lived near them for over 30 years. We talk at least once a week and communicate by email, and I make sure I see them at least twice a year. My dad and I don't have a lot in common, but he's never judged me and he's very easy to get along with.

    And please understand that I am NOT judging anyone, or anyone's father, or anyone's relationship, but I am a father myself of one grown daughter and two grown sons, and I can't imagine not being close to them and having them in my life from the moment of their birth until the day I die. (And the ONLY thing I pray for is that my children have the honor of burying me. I cannot imagine how painful it is to have to bury a child, and I know too many people who have had to do it.)

    I know the biological parent/child bond can be broken, but I can't conceive of how that happens. I've been very lucky, I guess.

    Aristoshark saidI get along great with my dad now. And I think this is going to be his last year, which makes me very uneasy and unhappy.


    Wish you much strength J.

    Also enjoy every moment you can..

    I was really close with my dad as well. I grew up playing video games and watching sci fi movies with him. He unfortunately passed away earlier this year from pancreatic cancer

    We were father and son. We were coinstigators in selecting toys that drove mom crazy but gave us great pleasure. We hunted, fished, and ran around the countryside together. We were best buddies. As time moved forward I assumed the role of father as dad passsed into what was his second childhood. I was there the moment he left this earth and will always cherish what I learned from dad that has so well protected me from people and the crap of this world to this day.

    There will never be a better father than my dad.

    Yes, I have a very close relationship with Dad. I feel like I can talk to him about anything. We do lots of things together.

    Unfortunately, I don't have as great of a relationship with my Mom, though.
