To start off, I am not even in a relationship yet. But I like to think about my future. I'd also just like to know if anyone is in the same boat as me. My father is weird, to put it simply. He wasn't there for a lot of the time growing up, because he was in prison. Once he got out, he eventually moved in with us. I don't want to go into detail about that here, but I'll just say, he's pulled some shit and was not the best person to live with. We got away from him by moving away a few years ago. Even after we moved out, he pulled some shit. So my father hasn't been the best father, but it's clear to me that he is putting effort to remain in my life. My issue is, I don't ever want him knowing I'm a lesbian. When he lived with us and I saw him more frequently, he'd sometimes make weird sex jokes that made me extremely uncomfortable. If he finds out I'm gay, I am scared he will make creepy lesbian sex jokes. I don't want to deal with that, it would be painfully uncomfortable. So, some day when I find a nice girl to marry, I may not want to invite him. But I can't help but feel I'd regret that. He is my father, after all. It's not like he's the worst father ever. It's just a complicated situation. Shouldn't he be there? Can anyone relate? I know it's way off in the future, seeing as how I am not even in a relationship yet, but I still can't help but wonder what I am going to do.
