Like, dad had an affair or something. Or broke up for general reasons.
Eventually, it feels like you haven't got a dad.
Why do 'dads' do this?

I'm sorry this is is your situation. A lot of men, fathers emotional abandon their children. Most of the time the answer is selfishness. Even great dads often get to the stage where they almost seem not to care about their children once they get older- this is usually why children maintain a connection with their mothers much longer and more deeply than their fathers. Don't take it personally, all though you feel like it is personal, it is his problem and not yours. It is sad that he is missing out on you and all you have to add to his life. Hopefully when you are old enough, you will remember to choose a man who has a great connection with his family because this is a good sign of his persistence with you. Chin up girl- just because he is not valuing you, doesn't mean that you are not valuable.1
