Idk what to do for thanksgiving?

This would be my first thanksgiving with my bf and his family but i feel if i go im going to be bored for we wont have nothing in common and he'll be talking to them and I'll just be there . But i feel i need to show him I'm interested in getting to know his family. But on the other hand my father is 66 years old and he's pretty sick for he has dementia and he's not getting better and sooner or later he'll be going to an assistance living and me and my bf been living at my fathers house which will be my house . My sister is always telling me we don't know how much longer he has ;/ i just don't want to disappoint even though my bf says he doesn't mind if i don't go he says whatever makes me happy .

(I feel i should go with my father i just need some feedback ;/)

  • I would stay with your father, not because he's ill necessarily, but because it seems that's where you would rather be. Or maybe you could split the holiday?

  • How long have you been with your boyfriend?

  • I think either way would be fine. Do you know your boyfriends family? How long have you been together? If you feel like you should be with your dad then stay with him but maybe go to bf families another day or invite them over for dinner on another weekend. What are you doing for Christmas? You may be able to do Thanksgiving with one family and Christmas with the other.

  • I feel that family is important and if your father is sick you dont know how much time he has. so my suggestion to you is to go and see him. he would be glad that you made the right decision.
