He was born 13.10.1945 - in the year when world war 2 ended and now he turning 65. We never have been very close to eachother especially after he divorced with my mom, but still he is my father and i always will be his son who loves him. Sometimes I have expressed open hostility and rejection to him, but i have done it just because he wasnt with me in times when i needed him very much - in my teenage years. Now he trying to gain my respect as he can, but most of his attempts fail so far. I still love him and i wish him happy birthday tomorrow!

Life is short,that's what most people say. We never know our last day on Earth. If he's making effort to gain your respect, then give him a chance to be a father to you. Both of you are getting old, maybe by now you have a family of your own too,and you know how it feels when you're son/daughter loves you back.

Thanks for best wishes! We work together in the one house so we meet eachother every single workingday. Also we play table tennis at lunch break, so i think its good to both of us to have this time what we spent together :)

Happy birthday to your father. Hope he'll have a good one and I think that would help if you do something nice for him. Since your writing a discussion about it, maybe you wanted to do something special for your father? Be nice even just for his special day. Who knows after that day, you'll get closer and gradually resolve whatever issues you have with him.
