Have you ever been interested in a guy (or gal) who says they have not talked to their mother in a few years because they "don't get along", father simply wasn't around growing up (ok fine), goes several months without talking to younger adult siblings, and hasn't heard or seen pre-teen daughter in a year because "the baby's mother keeps her away"? I ask because I found myself in that situation and I don't respect him for it. Especially because he's looking for a new place and his youngest sister asked him to stay with her 'til he gets his new place (she really missed him), so I said "Oh, that's great! You both can get close again:)" and he quickly dismisses it with a " Yea, whatever. Anyway." "What?"
I'm calling this shit quits because now he's treating me like a fucking piece of shit. So, what are your thoughts on people who don't get along with family? Does it influence how you view them? I refuse to believe that in any situation in life, it's always everyone else that has something wrong with them. It's a cop out, in my opinion.

I don't have a good relationship with either of my parents. My dad left when I was little, while my mom was emotionally unavailable and disowned me when I was 19. I wouldn't want my date to meet either of them, honestly... I don't enjoy their company, and he knows that. I don't see my brothers and sister much either, or other family members for that matter. We all sort of do our own thing. The guy I'm dating now doesn't get along with his mother and isn't close with his family either.
If anything, we bonded more because of our family situation. Doesn't mean that we "don't get along" with them, but every family has their own issues.0
