Father vs Mother

February 3, 2010 4:42pm CST
I must admit that I consider my mom as my best friend since I was in college where I can share all my boy problems and all, its a different thing with my dad though where I can not speak with him for a whole month if I can. The same goes with my younger sisters and brothers where they can be themselves when our mom around but not with our dad. I noticed, that most of the children have this undeniable bond with their moms but have weird relationship with their dads. The question is, are you much closer with your mom or with your dad?

I am much closer to my mother than my dad because my mom had been there for me every step of the way, where my real dad has not. After about 34 years of looking for my real dad, I found him online. I was so excited, too! We even got a dna cheek-swab test, and he even called me once in 36 years. Yet my mom has been the one closer to me that knows when I am upset or happy. We share many things, like a bunch of old girlfriends. My dad on the other hand, lies about ever knowing about me when I was still a baby, whereas my mom has evidence that says otherwise. I don't understand why he would continue to lie. I called him on it one time, and then proceeded to tell him how I really feel about the whole situation, and he has not spoken to me since. It is a shame, too, after 36 years of not being able to know who my real dad is. I wish he was more in my life, but not under the guise of lie.

I'm closer with my dad! It's because when I was young, and I saw that I had a brother and then two sisters, I think they might need my mom more than me, so I turn to my dad and i'm kinda daddy's girl too. hahaha.. I used to cry when my dad is outstation and since he always call me everyday when I was in university, so I always missed him more than mom. But I don't really share problems with neither mom or dad because I prefer to keep it to myself tho.
