  • Hard one! I think that in many ways my Dad understands me better. He seems to get my actions but he doesn't really understand me emotionally, if that makes sense. He can get the logical side of me but the minute I express an emotion he seems lost. Mom is the other way around. She seems to understand my deep emotional self but can't figure out why I do the things I do in daily life.

  • My mom, but that's just because I probably share more with her. I love my dad just as much, but he wouldn't be able to handle half the things I tell my mother. Bless her heart. :)

  • Growing up, I thought my mother understood me better. My dad passed away almost 6 1/2 years ago, and I have learned over those years that he had a better understanding about me than I thought. Now, my mother doesn't give,me,DH or our son the time of day. Too bad, it's her loss! She's missing out on a great son in law, and an AWESOME grandson, and a daughter that loves her very much!

  • Before he died, I would have said my dad... but dealing with Dad's death and the years that followed have led to my mom understanding me far better than my dad ever did.
