my dad is a total douchecanoe. fine. a lot of ladies have this issue on the boards. i don't think i am special or anything. i just need to release some sh!t.
i have been REALLY good about his BS for the past year. he has met FI a total of 3 times in the 4 years we have been dating. he lives 2 hours from me, when my mother lives ACROSS THE COUNTRY and has met FI and FIs family so many times. this is including the E party. hasn't contributed any $ towards the wedding. not that i would have accepted it anyway. the last part was more informational than rant.
i haven't spoken to him in probably a month or so. that wouldn't be totally unusal if i wasn't getting married. i called triple the amount i normally do, emailed, texted. he finally picked up the phone tonight.
2 weeks before the wedding, he hasn't book his hotel, having suit issues, then starts talking to me about looking at furniture that he wants to get rid of b/c he is thinking about retiring? complaining about lack of work, pulling his usual Eeyore routine. then he starts in about how his life is changing and i am getting married and having a total moment. this is a FIRST and i am really not equipped to deal.
on top of that, he is all bent out of shape about some girlfriend that dumped him THAT I DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS DATING. he said, "i guess she thinks i mistreated her or that i was unappreciative of her. i was getting sick and tired of it being me and her all.the.time. so i planned/took some me time, and that backfired. so now i have nothing but me time."
somedays, i really feel like the parent.
vent over. can we go back to telling crazy dating stories? or weirdest places people have had sex?
thanks for listening.
ETA: at the very end of the call he shouts into the phone: i want to see the grandkids!
