Things we have in common

tempers
work ethic
good social skills


He rarely watches sports unless I am home, he has only had 1 drink in his life, I'm more emotional. He never played sports growing up even though he was tall and athletic. It was all about work for him but that was what was expected out of him from his father. I'm glad he has given me the oppurtunities he didnt have.


We do get along though most of the time. He does have a sense of humor but you have to catch him in the right mood. He has definitely opened up more as I grew up though. The only thing we can really conversate about for a long time is his work, which he loves. He has a worse temper but nowhere near as bad as his fathers.

things we have in common

tend to spend a lot of time in our own worlds (absent around others frequently)
smart sensitive men
both fancy ourselves very funny
both good ball players
both good actors



after that we're very different, my dad is a "type A" worker and worrier, i rebeled against that to a fault. my dad's good with money i'm not, my dad plans ahead i don't, my dad stresses out about little sh*t, i don't. different politically and socially as well, he has probably been drunk or stoned 5 times in his life, i don't drink much either (i've got 5 times beat by a lot though) but i did a lot of drugs and still smoke bud. he was married at 22, i'm 31 and still don't have much interest in committing to one girl for the rest of my life. I've always felt very lucky to have had the parents i had, they are different than me and frustrating sometimes but they are/were very grounded and wise to the big-picture for the most part, i see/hear about some other people's fathers/mothers and i feel so blessed.

I didn't meet my real dad until I was 21. He's the only other person in my family who has any any sort of interest in sports. I had always wondered where I got it from. He's 52, still has all his hair, and is thin, so I guess that bodes well for me

He has a bit of a drinking problem and is a bit more of a redneck than me (not that there's anything wrong with the latter, but worth pointing out). Other than that, we are pretty similar.

We generally share the same interests, very similar personality.

I have qualities that he'd like and vice versa(we've discussed them so we know)

We're as close to best friends as you could get, only he's my father.

Default Re: Just like my dad

My dad died 7 years ago and before that I didn't think we had anything in common at all. The only time we could actually talk to each other was when discussing sports and even then it would turn into an argument sometimes. He really liked baseball and I was just a casual fan. He loved college basketball but hated the NBA whereas I liked both about equally.

It's funny but now that I have a kid of my own I find myself acting like my dad. The other day I actually said "I'm gonna turn this car around and go back home if I hear any more back talk from you!" I actually scared myself.

I learned all my manners and stuff from my mom. I got my own attitude, values, and morals though.

I'm nothing like my pops, as far as I know. And I don't really ever want to share any similarities with him. I have more of an emotional connection to the bum that used to be outside the liquor store all the time that we'd give a couple bucks to so he'd buy us liquor when I was younger.

But, I try not to hold grudges. All the bull**** I've been though/done in this life shaped who I am in some way, shape, or form, and he's definitely been an influence though he was never there. I'll credit him if I do in fact end up being a good father, cuz all I have to do is the complete opposite of him.
