  • I haven't seen my dad in 10 years and I've spoken to him one brief moment over the phone and that was about 10 years ago. I barely spoke to him any before that, he didnt' care to have anything to do with me. I don't care if I ever speak to him again.

    Do you have the opportunity to spend time with your dad? Do you get to see him much or are you in different towns? If your relationship is good. try to arrange a time for the two of you to go out and do something together.

  • Well we all have different lives and relationships. I can tell you from my own experience that life is VERY VERY short and if you love your dad to bits...then MAKE the time to spend with him and to tell him you love him. I got a call the day after 4th of July from my dads wife telling me he had been found floating face down in their pool and had died. I would give anything for one more minute with him.

  • I would think it depends on your relationship and if it causes him any problems. Most girls have more of a relationship w/Moms and boys Dads. I wouldn't feel too bad unless you feel it's making him feel bad, then maybe a few more calls, short & sweet would be good.

  • I don't speak to most of my family if I don't have to. And I haven't had anything to say to my "dad" in over 4 years... Nope, nothing wrong with it, just how you choose to live. IF you don't like it, change it.

  • Me either, but I need to start. Perhaps we could call our fathers every week?
