Of your parents, who do you feel closest to?
Do you confide in them, or trust only your friends?

I think I'm fairly typical in this regard.
I felt more comfortable discussing sex issues with my dad, since I'm male.
But on most other matters, I felt closer to my mom.
Same with you?


EDIT:
Thank you to all who have participated.
The poll and replies mostly confirmed what I had suspected.
But there were a few surprises.
Most notably, the absence of spam replies to the thread.

My dad sacrifices more things for me, and I'm much closer to him because there's a lot of things that you just can't talk about with my mom. But if my parents divorced, I'd have to live with my mom, since she's much more reliable

don't talk sex with parents

but I feel slightly closer to my mum, 'cos I don't see my Dad all the time (works a **** load).. but I have a real good laugh with my Dad and we have an identical sense of humour which is amazing.

Males trust their mums most, females trust their fathers most. It's natural, lots of evidence for it too.

EDIT: There are exceptions too.

Is this because of sharing the same "gender" point of view or is it just something about your mom and your dad that causes you to prefer talking to him?

I don't talk to my parents... I just can't. I don't want them to worry about me if I have to say something bad to them or if I'm going to disappoint them, so I don't say anything at all.

well my dad is usually a jerk to anyone and everyone. he sits on the computer playing WoW all day because he doesnt have a job but he complains about our financial situation. he blames my mom for all his problems ("i dont have any friends because of you") and he says everyone is wrong but him.

so i've pretty much gave up on my father
#22
I feel awkward talking about anything serious with either of my parents. That said, I get along with my dad much better. I think it's because I don't see him as often so it's more like he's my friend than my dad.

my mum's ponged in the fruitloop. She's quite mental.

My dad's just a more reasonable, likable person. I'm not particularly open with either though, I tend to just deal with them by myself.

I live with my mom, but I feel closer to my dad, because we have much more in common, and he's my role model. I'm following his footsteps. I barely talk to any of them about something really serious, but I'd rather talk to my dad than my mom. I just don't want to disappoint or upset them. Dad is often away though, but if I ask him for favors, if he's available he will help, because he owes me. I suppose I'm much closer to my dad, although he's not the best parent. He's a friend and a father. My mom is... my mom.

My mom's an irresponsible bitch, so I'd rather talk to my dad cause he doesn't suck ass. Talking to either of them about sex though? No thank you.

The gist of that is obvious, but UK slang is still a bit foreign. First time I've seen the word "ponged". It makes me giggle.

I'm female. My parents are divorced and I've lived away from both of them for over five years. I talk to my mum about my friends and my life in general; I talk to my dad about money and my career. I talk to nobody about my emotions. Parents must only know thoughts, not feelings.
#35
I dunno, my mom is annoying and over protective, but she's not retarded and is mostly nice.

My dad gets angry at the slightest thing, is annoying, probably has mild Alzheimer or something (he's always out of it), and is terrible to talk to.

I guess my mom but I'd rather not talk to either. And I don't.

Always been like that. No one seems to notice, though.
But once you make a poll you CAN'T edit the poll or delete just the poll.

my mom pretty much supports my family singlehandely, but she's lost her job recently so everything's gotten pretty bad. but i have so much respect for my mom because of what she grew up with (abusive parents) to become the person she is now. i'm sure she would do anything to help me, my brother and sister
