    Not at all - my dad is such a loner that he only talks at people, he doesnt care about anything that doesn't directly involve him. He is also very stuborn that it drives me insane.
    For example I cant ask him for lifts anywhere as he doesnt want to be a taxi - but now my friends have to taxi me everywhere
    constantly walking on eggshells as he is so easily offended - which is really bad as i do need him to drive me and my stuff to uni so from now until then i just have to stay out of his way and not talk to him.

    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!
    Thanks for making me sound common!

    No, he has said he wants one because I'm suing him under Schedule 1 of the Children's Act.

    Before that, he left me when I was 2. I didn't see him for 14 years & he moved on with his life. He doesn't care about me.

    We have a shared acknowledgement that people like him shouldn't have kids.

    Yeah I do. He gets on really well with me and my siblings, always there when we need it, but knows when to leave us be.

    Nope. He's a lazy douchebag, who never did a hard days work to provide for his family until he became a bus driver last year. Too little too late imo

    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.
    Well, fair enough, some are bad, like rapists and stuff, but generally, *****ing about something small, like him making you do the washing up or something, pales into insignificance when you consider your life without them.

    Yes we do... i'd say he's a protective person, always curious about what i did suring my days at school or at home.
    He's really cool, but sometimes, really embarrassing!

    Yeah I get on well with my dad, it'd be a nightmare if I didn't as my sister and my mam both moved out years ago. I respect him as he's never really told me what to do with my life or what direction I should take, he's always sort of just guided me and accepted whatever choices I've made, whether he agreed with them or not. And we always make sure we have a laugh and don't take life too seriously, so yeah, he's a top dad I feel really lucky

    I don't really see my dad enough to say that we have a relationship of any kind. He's always working abroad and trying to get in touch with him is like trying to contact an international man of mystery. Perhaps he actually works for MI6 :awesome:
