The ability of Fathers and Sons to have a conversation...

77 posts in this topic

Apparently I don't have this ability, or he doesn't, or some combination of the two.

I honestly feel like I am talking to some alien person when we try and have a serious conversation.

Zero connection.

Does anyone else have this issue ? Or am I just especially fuged up? (yeah yeah)

Find common interests; you can talk about things you like no matter who it's with.

Zero.

How old is he?

60ish.

For instance he called me today about a prior agreement.

Basically telling me I would become a better person if he didn't follow through, b/c he didn't feel I had "qualified" for said agreement happen.

I have of course, he just got into his mind that this needed to be discussed...well argued about.

It's hard to explain what it's like to have such a straining relationship. I feel like I have next to no connection with one of the few people I should.

My dad was always a hard ass growing up and he never shared my interests so we have always been socially awkward. We talk to each other through my mother. We once went on vacation together, just me and him and every night at dinner it was silence.....absolutely brutal. TBH I'm a little worried some things will go unsaid until the day he dies but that's how his generation is. I don't know how to fix my situation and I sure as hell don't know how to fix yours but all I can say is it happens.

    • Exactly. You'll gain weight even eating below 2,000 if all your calories come from carbs/fats. Dieting is about tailoring your proteins/carbs/healthy fats within a calorie requirement. There are min/max to all three of these. I keep it at 50/40/10 depending on how I'm working on my body at the moment. 50% protein, 40% carbs, 10% fat within a certain calorie intake. I'll raise he fat and lower the carbs to lose weight. People also look at that and say wow half my calories can be yummy carbs and fat! Those carbs are rice veggies and beans/quinoa and the fat is avacado peanut butter or fish though so not really. On a diet like IGO's, as long as fats are watched, it's almost unecesscary to count calories. This diet would never work for me because of my needed protein intake...beans and tofu only have so much to offer someone building muscle. However I eat read meat 2-3 times a month, and alternate between fish and chicken otherwise with the occasional bean/pea/tofu day.
    • True. On the one hand, I would consider myself a professional student of the ground game he has architected - but on the other hand, I have to wonder about any artist who chooses a pà1ntbrüsh whose strokes are only accurate 52.7% of the time when he has a much better option in his toolkit...
