It's gotten a lot better since he moved five states away. We talk every couple months and meet for Christmas. It's perfect.

My last experience with my father was performing CPR on his lifeless body for 40 minutes (a fucking long time) on a trail 4 miles into a wilderness area. I was 22. We had a good relationship. While he was a fairly stereotypical male of his generation — quiet, capable, and inept at expressing emotions — he excelled at sharing his passion for the outdoors. We camped, backpacked, fished, skied, and otherwise played outside as often as possible. Given the choice, I would like to go the way he did; doing something I love with people I love. No rest home, hospital or doctors involved.

I don't know how my father would have reacted to me telling him I had a boyfriend (much later in my life). I don't think he would have understood or really accepted it, but our relationship was good enough that I don't think his opinion of me would have changed.

We don't talk much. He hasn't been a great father in the past. It's not a bad relationship now, but he thinks it is. He complains that we don't talk much but I think I'm better off not talking much. I think there's no point.
