A father who his child can rely on. He hugs and jokes and treats his family with respect, caring for the child, making sure that they want to live and keep them from harm from others and their selves. He listens to his child, he cares for their interests and never laughs at their mistakes. He understands his child's dream and ambitions and would go out of his way to help them reach this. He never puts money at a higher importance, and knows that he cannot buy love.
Above all, he will not hurt his daughter.
Dad often gives hugs to their children

The parent that DOESN'T call you a slut and a drug addict and kick you out of the house. The one who doesn't call up their family and tell them you "bashed" them when THEY'RE the one who's pushing YOU while screaming "HIT ME! C'MON HIT ME!". The parent who never lied about lawsuits and restraining orders and where all the money went. The parent who tells you when things go wrong, when he's out of cash for the week, when he drinks too much, when he crashes his car. The parent who admits his mistakes and sets the record straight. The one who takes care of you and makes sure you're doing everything safely. The parent who makes dorky jokes and tells you not to eat so much cookies because he "worked hard to get this gut" and he doesn't want me to look like that. The parent who calls me pathetic and rolls his eyes at me every time he says I smell like an ashtray. The parent who gives me money for coffee and gum and chips and soy sticks, just because I don't want to spend my own shit change. The parent who has always spoiled me and called me silly nicknames. The parent who tells me I've got too much make-up on, because I don't need it. The parent who does what I say. Asks me how to make his chat-site work. The parent who took us in and has a job and does something PRODUCTIVE on the weekend. The parent who's not over-consuming pain medication just because their toe hurt. The parent who lets me have the main bedroom in the house just because I wanted it. The parent who builds me furniture and buys me shelves with anchors and boats from the kids' section, just because I wanted it. The parent who made me act like a (more) sane, normal person rather than an angry, withdrawn person who punched walls and cupboards and threw glass bottles at people. The parent who I never fight with, who I can't be angry at. The parent I LOVE, not the parent I can't even PRETEND to stand to be around. The parent I appreciate, and am thankful to have in my life.
"16 and not yet stangled. Lots of love - Dad." - best one yet.

One of the few, if not the only, boy a girl can trust. He's the one who loves playing games with you & goofing off with you while your mom works. He works too, doing manly things like mowing & vacuuming, just not as much as the mother.
He's the old-timey guy who loves board games but also enjoys Mario Kart very much. He stays in the basement watching old western movies & working on puzzles (my family refers to it as the Mancave). He's the one with the stories of when he was a boy that make you smile & always teach a lesson, he's the one who still wants to hold your hand or hug you at the mall, visits video game stores & watches movies frequently, demanding at times, the one you can talk to when your mom's having major mood swings.

The greatest guy ever.
Mom: OAUEHTFAIOSEHBORICQHUE0SIRUHYZIJQBEO!!! D:<

Me: Mmm, looks like Mom's in a mood again.

Dad: Yeah, that's been happening a lot lately. -chuckles- I love your mom, but when she gets angry, -chuckles again- she gets angry.

Why I distrust all men, cry myself to sleep at night, feel unwelcome in my own home, & would cut my mom slack for anything.

He acts like a nice parent when guests are over, or we're in public, but once we're alone, he's a maniac. A bomb always waiting to blow, he snaps at the slightest provocation. My options are to let him get away with his abuse, or to stand up for myself & get the living crap beaten out of me.

We’ve only not kicked him out of the house because my mom was raised by an abusive father herself, so she doesn't know what it is to be treated right, & because she believes that children don't do well in single-parent households.

Every time I give him another chance, he proves me wise for not having been completely open with him since I was 8 years old.

He has failed at giving me the the sole thing I deserve: Unconditional love. Thanks to him, I've had to stay in the closet my entire life. Even when my heart was bursting at the seams with love for the first time, at the age of 13 years old, I couldn't go to my own father for advice.

Thanks to this thorough incompetence, I've basically had to raise myself.

Cherry on top: My family is wealthy, so whenever I drop even the slightest hint that I'm miserable with them, I get called a spoiled, ungrateful brat. I find this to be ironic - you would think that less fortunate people would understand even better than I do that the impact of material items on happiness pales in comparison to being accepted & loved...
*My mom is deployed overseas, so I'm alone with my dad and brother on Christmas*

Me: "No, Dad. I don't want to talk to Grandma. She says horrible things to me and insults everything I do!"

Dad: "YOU WILL TALK TO HER THIS INSTANT!!!"

Me: "NO. She's a BULLY."

Dad: *hangs up phone and starts yelling profanities in my face, then starts punching me over and over until I'm pinned on the floor, trying to shield my face and genitals as he keeps hitting me*

Me: *later, to my brother, through a split lip and bruised face* "Merry Christmas, huh... let's call Mom on Skype. Maybe we can still have some happiness today..."
