The assurance of your father that he's there for you to protect you from the outside world.. To restrict you from doing things which you will regret doing later on...
It doesn't affect you at all!!!
A girl I dated knew her father who was high powered and she was conceived by trick in a bar. He has court order against daughter or mother being around him. She is not right but I loved her. It is a shame what happens from that disconnect of never meeting him.
I can’t speak for those who didn’t have a father in their life. My dad was a very hard working man. Very kind. He grew up and had a hard life. Till the end, we talked to him what he has done and he should be so proud!!
he may and will never be a perfect father…no such thing…but he gave what he can for us to succeed!
he did his job.
I dated a nice guy from both good hearted parents. However his father walked out when he was around 5/6 years old. The father would come around from time to time to take him and his brother out and gave them some gifts…by the time I met him…his father had health issues…his mom help but not always showing love.
he grew up relying on alcohol and drugs. Perhaps to cover the lost …
boys, especially boys growing NEED to have a father figure to give them the encouragement, the emotional support. The presents of a father figure should not be undermined.
man of this society!! Please rise up and take control again!! This country need you!!
Your father can't protect you from everything (at least I don't think.. maybe unless he's got friends in high places lol).. sooner or later you have to learn things for yourself.
If I DIDN'T have a father (thankfully I did though), growing up, I still probably would've relied on my older brother, and THAT would've been a big mistake in many ways as he was MUCH more immature than me.
Source: My 4 and a half years older brother and my lovely dad. He's not PERFECT but he tries hehe.
It’s really wonderful and us lucky ones to have a good father figure.
Even though I dated a guy where the father walked out on him. I would never know how he feels. I would never know the times when he wondered why his dad is not home or just left. I would never know when all other kids in class talk about their fathers on Father’s Day…that little boy maybe crying inside…
All these affects how that little boy will turn out as and adult.
Perhaps…those are the reasons why my ex boyfriend relay on alcohol and drugs.
There are so much unknown…one thing we know…their father wasn’t their to cheer them…to hold their little hands so they can feel love, comfort and that big man/superhero to look up to.
Not sure about not having a Dad, but I had to raise my daughter the last 10 years of her life.
I wish her mother could have been here to see her grow to be the woman she is now.
Sure it was difficult at times, and she needed her mom to talk to, but, I did the best I could and tried to remind her often her mum would be proud of her. I gave her as much love as I possibly could, show her right from wrong and keep an eye our for her.
As the single parent standing, it's all you can do.
It was a disaster because my mother was dysfunctional. His view would have balanced hers. But he died.
So I am ready to take an honest look at myself and make changes for the better. My mother's ideas were way wrong. she was cruel to me and favored another sibling. I forgive both of them.
It depends on who your father is, or was. I've had three dad in my life. My biological Dad is a good dude but we don't have anything in common, and he's kind of a prick sometimes. So, I don't know how to feel about him. My second dad was a piece of crap who started beating me when I was 2 years old. He died when I was 12 and I don't miss him. My third dad is a really kind and supportive man. I like him a lot and will miss him when he goes.
The man who I lived with was no father he was a child abuser and a wife beater, he’s dead now and I couldn’t be happier.
Well, my dad left when I was 13 and I didn’t see him very much afterwards so basically I was raised by my mom and I turned out all right I think, but it would’ve been nice to have a father figure still in the household
i never met him, so i dunno. he's a piece of shit though, so i don't care either
My dad died when I was 9, My oldest uncle became my "dad" or sorts.
I am traditionally unaffected by having no good father (figure) in my life.
Other than the obvious abuses of course.
But who raised me? Me, myself and I did. That's who.
Don't care. My parents could be dead for all I know.
Well, my father died 20 years ago, so...
I can't really vote because yes, Dad was not there, but I happened to end up in households that had a father figure in place. My Great Grandparents was a little strange since they're literally from the 1800's and the things I learned were not really fit well with dealing with how the world is now... spent 3 years with my Mom, who was 30-ish and a lot less than 100 years old and that was a shit show. I had a step-dad there but he was like early 20's and got fucking dominated by my mom. I won't go into it, but just accept me saying it was a shit show... then at 16 I finally had a semi-stable father figure again... my uncle which was just with my aunt. Aunt was a foster kid and he wasn't related either. She was fucked up retarded (raised by the same great-grandparents) but he at least had his mind together. He taught me shit I could use... like fighting and just being an asshole toward women that don't have their shit straight... like my Mom.
Dad was a thing where he hit me up on facebook one day... I asked him what he could bench when he was at his strongest... and I never heard a damn word from him again and he died. My brothers and sisters started going ape shit to get money out of it and I just checked the fuck out of that shit show. I probably have more money than all of them put together so let them eat themselves. Not my problem.
So in general... I feel like I had some Dads... just not "the dad" in place. My Mom was a totally crazy bitch that me and my sisters talk shit about her to this day because she's such a bitch. Just a nutty crazy bitch. Thank god I had some cool dudes in my life though because they taught me how to deal with women in general. I'd be one of those simps thinking a onlyfans girl is his girlfriend if it wasn't for that.
