A parent isn't necessarily related, if they raised you and cared for you, then that makes a parent.

Try talking to him, if he's any kind of dad, he'll probably help you through this.

I can tell you from experience finding out your dad isnt your father is hard but if he loves you and you love him it wont matter. My mother never told me because she thought i always knew it wasnt until he had kidney dease and i thought that if she couldnt give him her kidney i could have that i found out. All i know is, the man who treats me like im his wown has been doing that since i was a child and when i didnt even realize the meaning of calling someone your father i looked at him and told him "I love you Daddy" and he cried for the first time. if you truely love hom and he loves you it wont matter.


ps. sorry if that was more info than you wanted i just hope it helps

Does it even matter all that much? If your Dad loves you, it doesn't matter. He's your father and that's all you need.

I was born before my parents were married, and sometime I can't help but wonder if my dad is my biological father.

I'm turning 17 and I'm not so sure my father is my father. It is very heartbreaking to tell the truth. :/

Dad and Father are two very different terms.

Dad is someone who raised you, who loved you, and is there for you as much as they can be.
Father is someone who gave his sperm... that's really it.

Dad is emotion, father is biological...

If the man loves you like a 'Dad', then it shouldn't matter if he is your 'Father'.

Though if it does bother you to not your genetics(which is understandable, you don't want to suddenly come down with some horrible genetic disease and then find out that you couldn't have gotten it from your dad or mom), then ask your mom. If you ask him then it might stress him out... Your mom may not want anyone to know the truth, but she should know...

In my opinion if he raised you and loved you like he would a daughter then he is your father in every way than matters.

Even if he wasn't the one who.. fathered you, you shouldn't suddenly hate him. He's still your dad.

A few years ago I found out the man who took care of me wasn't my father; I had trouble looking at him the same. But not because of the fact that he wasn't my father; it was the fact that burried memories of him hitting me had come back from sleeping over the time he was in jail. I've tried to forgive him for that, but I still appreciate him for being there. It shouldn't matter, maybe he's not your dad, but he is your father.

Almost any man can physically father a child. It shouldn't be what makes them important. I personally don't think blood relations are as important as people make them out to be.

On the other hand if you're worried your mother cheated on your dad and we're all completely misunderstanding the secret maybe have a talk with you mom about it?

It doesn't matter?
Father is the one that is with you all your life, not the one that put the semen.

He may not be your father, but the fact is that he is your DAD. A father is merely the other half of your genetics, what makes a man a DAD (at least in my opinion) is whether he raised you, loved you, provided for your needs and wants, and is always here for you regardless of biology. If the man who has been in your life all this time is the one who did that, and if oyu love and see him as your dad, then whether or not he is genetically your father doesn't matter, except in the case of giving you your own peace of mind.
You are of an age where it should be appropriate to ask your parents to confirm your suspicions (or disprove them, whatever the case may be), so I say you should ask your mom or both parents together, and be ready to give them solid reasons for your doubts. If they believe you are mature enough and ready to handle the truth if it turns out he is NOT your biological father, they will tell you. Just remember that, regardless of the answer, nothing changes that he is the man who has raised you as his child this whole time, so he clearly loves you and for that you should feel eternally grateful and blessed. I wish you the best in this journey, should you choose to undertake it. :hug:

Have you thought that maybe, the person who sent this secret in may be a really great artist? This isn't about a person's art talent, it's about their secrets and the fact that they are willing to share it with everyone.

You don't have to be a pro-artist to submit a secret...We all have secrets that eat us away inside, artists, writers, photographers, convenience store managers. So please, be nice.

Hey bro/bradette: be nice. I'm sure we all started out that way at some point- I know I did before I got to where I am now. And if one didn't start out that way and was able to draw realism at like, two, when I was just scribbling colours on paper, then congrats for them, they have a freakin' GIFT. But your words are your opinion, and you are entitled to it-
but don't gripe when this deed comes back to you.

Biology isn't the same as love, though. Even if he's not your dad, if he raised you as his own with love and care then he might as well be :)

The important thing, in my opinion, is: do you love him? It does not matter if he is not your real father, but if you felt him like he really was :)
