Well, I Love the Guy But We Re...

Well, I love the guy but we really don't get along too well.  He is a very conservative republican type and I am not.  We never discuss anything of importance b/c it will turn into an argument.  I always avoid conversations with him unless they are about the weather or something that cannot be argued over.

That's the weird thing is that our personalities are quite similar. It's just our beliefs that are different. We grew up in different times and are influenced by different things. Plus I think it's pretty common for children to rebel against their parents way of thinking. Both my dad and I are far more like each other than either would ever admit.

You're right Celainn, I have much to be thankful for. The grass is always greener right?

Thanks silvertears. Our relationship won't ever entirely slip away I don't think. I don't hate him, I love him, and he feels the same. We are just very different people in beliefs but very similar in the WAY we think so it makes for a lot of butting heads. I just think it sucks that we have to have such a superficial relationship.

Oh contrare my friend, the weather can be argued over, lol. But I so get what you are saying. I find it very difficult to speak to my father at all. I wish you luck on finding even ground. Don't let it slip away completely.
