Arrow I need to know stuff to talk about :|

Im meeting my biological father tomorrow
this is the first time ive seen him since i was around 2 (15 yrs)
idk what to say to him at all
i met my uncle and grandma and cousins etc. around april and im just finally warming up to them.
and i met my brother in may, whom i didnt talk to because i was like " D: " the entire time.... beacuse im socially awkward and weird (which youve probably all figured out xD)

But yeah...any ideas?

Maybe approach it as if you are meeting someone that you aren't related to. Of course it is awkward and I get being shy, cus I am too. but just make small talk, talk about things you like, how life's been what is going on with you, your betta passion, etc. I'd think any hard questions you guys might have might have should be asked at a later time when you know eachother better. I don't know your situation, but if you haven't seen him in 15 yrs, I am sure there are some difficult or emotional topics that might be best to be saved till a later time.

If you get to choose something, just choose to do something you normally enjoy, or maybe just go out to lunch or something :)


good luck Jooleeah! Let us know how things go! :)

I know how you feel. My parents are divorced and the first time i saw my mom after about 6 or 7 years was very emotional. I was very nervous... what did she look and sound like now? What would she think of me? But when i finally saw her we gave each other a big hug and just talked about how we've been. I told her about my fish obssession things i loved,things i didnt like, i asked her questions about personal things like you may ask you father. I suggest you relax and talk about what has happened in these 15 years. Tell him about yourself. Tell him some funny things that happened and laugh your butts off. Basically just have a good time! And as for the activity you cant go wrong with the park! You can sit down under a tree, ride bikes or scooters,run around,eat ice cream, anything!
