Lets get something straight:
1- I go to college and am doing quite well.
2- I have a job that pays well.
3- I have my own car
4- I have a beautiful girlfriend that cares about me a lot
5- I am healthy and love to workout and be active.
Why does he always feel like what I'm doing is wrong. He talks shit about everything.
1- "yeah you're in college but how do I know if you are doing well" yet I bring home good grades.
2- "watch I know they will fire you someday because you are not smart enough to keep a job"
3- "So what if you have a car, I had one when I was your age and I wasn't a college student"
4- "Your girl friend is a bitch, and you are stupid for not playing these whores" even though she's the sweetest person you will meet and is in med school.
5- "You're like a woman paying attention to your body and what you eat" yet he sits at home all day and is severely over weight.
I don't get what is up with him or why he feels the need to do this to me. He makes me feel like a failure when the facts show that I'm not.
How do I handle this?

It's difficult when you have close family members who are toxic towards you. If your father is unnecessarily rude towards you and it is impacting your life and relationship with your girlfriend negatively, I would either cut contact with him or talk to him. If your father is the way he is, I don't think talking would be much help.1
