>dad is really shy, never had any girlfriends
>my mom was his first (they got married when he was in his early 30s, mom in her late 20s).
>no friends outside work
>after work just chills at home watching old french movies/dad rock music videos
>mom makes serious cash, travels a lot, head of family
feels so weird typing this out and I don't wanna diss my old man, but that's how it is, if /r9k/ existed in the 1970s he'd be here.
kinda weird because he has an attractive face, like a michael fassbender with brown eyes. he's just so terrible at social situations.
>met my mum through a friend
>had to go on a course early in his career to improve social skills
>loves trains, classic sci-fi books
>told me how he feigned interest and hung with people to keep up relations at work
I like my dad.
>Dad is fat and short (5'3) lives on his own in a shitty apartment in the ghetto
>drives a 2005 Camry that's been painted and looks awful, tape hangs off the sides
>poor, plays the lottery daily
>had a child at 16, gave the mother money for an abortion she didn't go through with it and spend it elsewhere
>writes positive mantras on the walls of his apartment
Genuinely surprised he hasn't killed himself, I'm pretty much turning into him though started writing affirmations myself.
My dad is the ultimate robot.
>shut in; hasn't left the house since I was 13 (when he retired)
>cannot read faces
>talks nonfucking stop
>my mom drives him everywhere
>she's loyal as fuck
>saves every fucking penny
>wears autism shoes and jeans
>makes synth music and paints
>goes into a rage and breaks everything when shit doesn't go his way
>eats tendies all the time
>only drinks soda
I wish I was making this shit up. I had to give my parents my cat so he wouldn't go bat shit insane.
>dad is 5'4
>about to turn 40
>2 serious relationships, one with my mom, and one with evil roastie that took a lot of his money, also her kids were dicks
>had to move back in with grandparents last year
>no friends to hang around with
>accounting degree, but unable to find work, stuck at walmart for years
>spends free time watching cooking shows and playing vidya games with his fuckup spawn
>incredibly smart, could have had a free ride through college but wasted it
I do love my dad a lot, and despite this he's been a really excellent dad. He's pretty optimistic about this year, though.
My mom does it as well, my girlfriend's sister did it as well and got into Berkeley after doing so but I'm pretty sure she'd have gotten into it anyway. My girlfriend's roommate does it but her life is already pretty damn good.
your dad is lucky, it sounds like he's got a good life.
Kid that loves him. wife that financially takes care of everything, free to be his anti-social self, good job.
I'd kill for this life
>your dad is getting cucked
doubt it, my mom's too right-wing-justbeyourselft-hardWorkPaysOff-family-values to do that.
yeah, like I said, his life is chill, he's just a weird guy. if he was ugly he would be FUCKED. but he isn't short and has a beautiful face. I guess that's all it takes. as for me, I got cucked by genetics and didn't inherit his good looks.
>tfw my dad was/is basically Chad
His idea of good parenting is financially supporting you, never mind the constant emotional and verbal abuse I suffered from him as a child. I'm 25 and he's much nicer to me. He's gonna be 64 soon.
