  • How many times are you going to post this today?
    Not trying to be rude..but I have seen this post a lot today...and if you haven't gotten responses it's because nobody knows how to answer you...You have already met him...so now it's up to you...I could see if you were saying...I'm meeting my dad for the first time ever tomorrow, and I'm nervous, what should I expect? How do I handle this? But you already met him...now you have to work on your relationship if there will be any...Stop posting the same question over and over in different categories just because either you didn't get answers, or you just didn't like the answers you got.

  • I would just try to have real expectations. You may have dreamed of this day or built it up to be fantasy type situation but he will have difficulty measuring up if you expect your relationship to be something you have imagined. It will take time to get to know him nad it will be more of a friend thing since you are grown and he cant really treat you like a dad would treat a child.

  • I don't know how to answer your question, but I will pray for you to be able to build a foundation for a relationship going forward. I think ria7 has a point about expectations. Keep and open mind and try to keep forgiveness in mind. Good luck, OP.
