  • no...because he is a drunk.

  • No, he is a sociopath, and it's very hard to have a relationship with a person like this.

  • My dad and I had the best relationship, he was always there for me no matter what, he didn't lie to me or my family and was the best. Yes I got in alot of trouble when I was younger and I got my fair share of punishments but I respected him and he respected me. He was the best dad ever, I am also extremely close to my mom. My dad passed away in 2005 and I miss him so much everyday!

  • If you mean my step-dad who raised me and whom I consider to be my REAL dad, then yes. If you mean my biological that I haven't seen or spoken to in about 25 years, then no.

  • nope - story too long to tell

    Answer by mommymeg03 at 10:21 PM on Apr. 13, 2009

  • Yes. I love my dad with all my heart.
    He's a riot - has a great sense of humor.
    If I'm having a bad day, I know I can always call and he will listen and make my day much better.
    He's a great grandfather to his four grandchildren.
    He and my husband get along great!

    I can go on and on!

  • We did until recently. I was his little princess but dh and I just made a decision for our family that we feel is best and he disagrees so now we hardly talk.

  • sometimes. we are kind of distant (location and relationship wise) because of the distance and our own busy lives.

  • not really...he is a drunk and very mood swingy, I have no clue how to act or talk around him without getting him mad, so I just avoid him.
