Dude…. I dunno how to answer that without sounding like a reptile.
I do find her funny occasionally. I don’t find children cute.
Obviously I don’t want anything bad to happen to her. To try to imagine how I’d feel…. it would likely trigger some negative emotions.17/04/2019 at 6:43 am in reply to: Things They Didn’t Warn You About Before Becoming A Dad #25314
Nah mate, I am hopeful that as she gets older some of her interests may start to align with mine. Maybe she will want to play football or start the boxing or playing the guitar (or another instrument) so we could jam together. Then we could do things we both enjoy together.
I’m a 33 year old red blooded male, it’s not likely I’m going to enjoy dolls, paw patrol or soft play areas. It’s not like she will be into these things forever either though. She loves spending time with me because I take her places she likes and I spoil her. I really hope one day I can start to enjoy it too.15/04/2019 at 7:29 pm in reply to: Things They Didn’t Warn You About Before Becoming A Dad #25219
How mind numbingly boring spending extended periods of time with kids is.
Cards on the table I never wanted kids, my partner knew this but came off the pill without telling me. So yeah I’m a dad now. My daughter is 5 now. I’m not with her mum anymore (I’m now engaged to a fantastic women who is much more on my wavelength) but I still pay the money and take my daughter at weekends because despite never wanting to be a parent I realise it’s not my daughters fault. I don’t enjoy anything about fatherhood though, I’m not wired that way. It’s an obligation I fulfill.
It really is sooooooooo boring though. That’s the part no one warns you about.
