I Needed A Dad Growing Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39 People

    I always felt unloved

    and unimportant to my father. Maybe if he was around I wouldn't be gay. He could have taught me different. I really feel like I missed out on all of the dad and son stuff. Like baseball and fishing and all of that. I used to hug big bundles of pillows and pretend it was my dad.
