Its been 16 years and I was asked if I wanted to see my real father AMA

Yes

151

No

46

I never knew my real dad at birth and my mother ran into him one day. He asked about me and my mom asked me if I wanted to see him. I originally said no because I could care less about at this point in my life because Im 16 and all I know about him is his last name is Wood. [u][b]So I ask you all to give your opinion on this topic.[/b][/u] [spoiler]What a great life I have. :([/spoiler]

  • Ask your mom about him. If he seems like a total toolbox, don't do it. Obviously moreso than that you should do what you feel is right. Screw what everyone here says.

    • Let me ask one question Would you rather: A) Never have the chance to meet your father, even though you would like to B) Meet your father, even though you kinda don't want to, C) Never meet him, and regret it later. My point here is that many people do want to meet their fathers, even if only deep in their hearts, and you have been given that chance. However bad someone is, you should always give them a second chance. This is all your own choice, but I would've said yes

        • I'm 18, biological father left when I was 7 or 8. My dad has been with me since I was about 9 months old. Him and my mom divorced when I was 8, but I still went and saw him 3 or 4 days a week. I changed my last name to his when I was 14. I recently got back in touch with my aunt and uncle on my biological father's side, and from what they've said about him, I don't wanna see him again. Go with what your family tells you, they probably know what's best.

          • You should meet him at least once. I'm worried that my kid will want to meet her dad, but he'll never want to do that. At least your dad has the balls to see you.

            • It could be worse. At least you didn't have to see your parents go through the divorce

                    1) Meet him 2) Acquire contact and address information 3) Sue for missed child support payments 6) Buy yourself a bitchen car for your 16th birthday 7) Acquire ladies You turned out fine on your own, you don't need him, but you might as well get a free car out of it.

                        • I never knew my birth father either. I was in the same situation as you are at about he same point in my life. I chose not to meet him. My thoughts were if he didn't care about me all these years...I didn't care to know him. I wasn't going to give him the satisfaction of even trying after all these years. He has since passed and I honestly don't regret my decision. Good luck with whatever decision you make. Only you can make the choice.

                          It's been 17 years and I've been asked to see my long-last half-sister. My sister, I would go see. My dad? Not really interested.

                          • I voted no. It'd be awkward as hell and I personally wouldn't give a shit if he didn't want to be a part of your life growing up.

                              I'd do it. I'm still kinda waiting/hoping this situation will arise for myself. I have so many questions...

                            • Definitely. You'll regret it if you don't, and you'll regret it less if you meet him and dislike him. You may even like him if you can get over the fact that he was never around.

                              • I'd say yes, only because every one should meet their dad. But that all depends on the circumstances, of why he couldn't be there for you.

                                Everyone deserves to know who their father is. It'd make his day to go and see him, mate. What bad can come of it?

                                    • I would not. I also have not seen my father (in 17 years) but I don't think I will ever, even given the chance. Though my father was abusive, so it's (possibly) a slightly different situation.
