Pretty much the opposite for me. When I was a kid, my dad constantly wanted to take me places like to the movies or the driving range, but all I ever wanted to do was play my Gameboy, or do something introverted, because that's how I was. I recall overhearing arguments between he and my mom, during which he'd be shouting, "He never wants to do anything with me. Why does he hate me?"

Never hated him (well, not never, but you know), I was just introverted. But now I'm an adult, and my father and I really don't even know each other. It's kind of sad, and I'm probably going to regret this later in life, but it's the way it is.

That's actually the exact same thing for me.
My dad lives hours away. I live with my mom and step dad.

As a kid, I would go visit my dad and his family almost every weekend. It was cool I guess. He had neater things in his home, like cable TV and a fridge loaded with food, but I didn't like that he took me to places he wanted to go. He took me to see his family who I didn't know at all. He took me to watch soccer games. He took me to work with him. He took me to resturants that he wanted to eat at, and check out chicks. He did show he cared about me, from things like letters to me every so often, to child support, to him telling me he plans on giving me his pickup truck (pretty new and decent looking at the time)

I grew up and gradually stopped visiting him as often, and sort of stopped caring as much. I don't hate him, though I can't say I love him, at least not as much as my plenty supportive step dad. I know for a fact that I don't want him to feel bad, or feel I don't like him.

I don't honestly consider him someone that is a close part of my life. My mom has to be the one to remind me of his birthday to give him a phone call.

Call him. Call your dad and tell him you love him. You know you'll regret it if you don't, and you know it will mean so much to him, so why don't you do it? Please? For someone that doesn't have that chance anymore...

Call him, I pretty much never take the time to thumb up comments, much less make one. I'm doing both now, call him.
