    My dad's really not nice to me at all.
    I'm wondering if I'm alone in this or not.

    Yes, but I wouldn't say we were close, so your poll isn't much use to me.

    My dad has ordered me to have a DNA test out of spite.
    He's just decided that he doesn't want anything to do with me.

    Yeah, he cares about me. But the general point is, I get on with my parents when I don't live with them, otherwise we drive each other crazy.

    Yes, he isn't the most caring person in the world, he's fairly laid back and I'm a bit concerned about him at times for health reasons as he nearly died through a heart attack, and he can be VERY mysterious.

    Does he want it to prove you're related, if he has an idea you're not his... or is he simply doing it in pure hope that it'll be negative? Very Jeremy Kyle!

    Ah I'm sorry Very good point there. But yeah I have a pretty normal relationship with my dad but we have never lived together, so though we probably arent as close it means we're not worse off either by having to put up living with each other.

    I do now but I don't see him very often. We didn't really get on too great when I lived at home though, when I was a teenager. But yeah as I've got older we get on fine.
