My dad doesnt love me.

My dad doesn't love me,
he's never been there for me throughout my life. I'm 16 years old and all my other friends dad's are regulary involved in there lives. My school prom is coming up in just under 2 weeks, and unlike everyone else's dad, my dad doesn't want anything to do with it. He lives about 1 hour away from me and my mum, and my brother lives with him. I didn't get anything for christmas except £20 and he gave me the same for my birthday. He wasn't even preapered to help me and my mum save our house from reposession a few months ago, even though it wouldnt have cost him a penny.
It's father's day this sunday, and unlike my friends i won't be spending it with my dad because i have spoken or heard from him in over 4 months.,
why doesn't he love me?

  • You need to look past all of it. So many people don't even have or know who their dad is. You need to quit with the non sense && take the igniative to go over to his house && tell him you love him anyways. Maybe if you make an effort he will too. Go easy on him even though your rough history with him. && Keep in contact with him.

  • He probably does love you, he just doesn't know to show it or how to relate to a 16 year old girl. A lot of men don't know how to communicate with their daughters. And your dad doesn't sounds like a mind reader. Have you spoken to your mom about this? Have you ever thought about asking your dad why he doesn't take a more active role in your upbringing? Have you thought about making more of an effort? Sometimes people need a push. He may think you're happy with the way things are..or isn't but doesn't know how to change things.

  • he left when i was 2, and has never bothered with me. My sister whos nearly 30 doesn't talk to him because he was exactly the same with her. I've tried, he just doesn't want to know me. My mum knows what he's like, she just says that she isn't suprised. I have asked him why he has never been there for me, and he said in his eyes and his only he has been, but he hasnt.

  • I'm sorry for you love, but its clear its him, you didn't do anything wrong.
