Like did anyone else grow up without a father (of course it's common, but I'm not sure I've ever met someone on here without a dad). I would think that since AB is all about reliving childhood it would be more common to have people without fathers or mothers. Personally I never had a dad, I mean I had a dad, but I never knew him and still have never met him. For that reason I guess I gravitate more to a strong fatherly theme in my roleplays, because I never had a father as a child. I always tried to find fatherly figures in my life when I was younger but they were never what I hoped they would be. Eventually I did find a nice friend who was a man (7-11 clerk), but he was just that, a friend who had a childlike side to him. I want to make it clear that I'm perfectly happy with my life and wouldn't change a thing, I'm just curious if there's anyone else on here who's dadless.
