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)

Both my father and FIL are white.

Asian babies are quiet because they can't understand english... :D

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.

    • I'll admit, I've been on the Funchess sucks wagon from pretty much the beginning. Didn't understand the pick, didn't like the pick, and have seen very little since then to change my mind. Still hoping he'll wake up, but honestly don't expect it. With KB, I liked the pick. Pretty much gave him a pass for last season coming off the ACL, but if this dude shows up out of shape to camp again... hot damn. He still has plenty of time to show up to camp in excellent shape, but he definitely needs to start doing a better job of taking care of himself year round. The older he gets, the harder he'll find it becomes to work those off-season pounds off.
