wow "Every day"?--awkward!
I would think this blows massive holes in the doctrine that most men are gay because their daddy never hugged them...
eb925guy saidThere's also a big difference, in my opinion, with dads of today versus dads of a generation ago. My dad never was affectionate towards me growing up but when he got older we always hugged while saying hello or good bye and he got so he always told me he loved me after phone conversations.
I think it's something you develop but society's acceptance of men feeling more comfortable being affectionate has a lot to do with it. I always tell my son I love him when I see or speak to him and we always hug when in person. We have a close relationship and we both feel that. I also call him 'son' a lot instead of his name because he's the ONLY person that get's that greeting.
Funny to me that the grand kids get the cool/loving granddad, not the man I used to lie awake at night, planning how to kill.
