when a girl has a messed up relationship with her dad. usually the fathers fault. either he left or is acting like a total bitch.

as a result the girl might be attracted to older men, or men with anger issues if her father was an angry man, and sometimes will stay in an abusive relationship because it would just feel like home. if he left, don’t ever blame yourself for him leaving. he just missed the best thing that he could have ever have.
person 1: yeah dude my dads fucked up, he left me for money/drugs/alcohol/a younger woman. and now I’m attracted to older men.
person 2: I’m sorry dude that must’ve been hard.

person 1: yeah I have to go to therapy

person 2: well you already know that you have daddy issues so that’s a start

The result of a messed up relationship with one's father, or having an absent father. Results in younger women chasing older men and even seeking mistreatment in some cases.
I was dating a 24 year old when I was 38 but I didn't try to dress young. I was just a major alcoholic and she was the daughter of an alcoholic and had major daddy issues.

Once I sobered up she lost interest and I got creeped the fuck out thinking about the psychology of it all.

Father complex in psychology is a complex—a group of unconscious associations, or strong unconscious impulses—which specifically pertains to the image or archetype of the father. These impulses may be either positive (admiring and seeking out older father figures) or negative (distrusting or fearful).
Sigmund Freud, and psychoanalysts after him, saw the father complex, and in particular ambivalent feelings for the father on the part of the male child, as an aspect of the Oedipus complex.1 By contrast, Carl Jung took the view that both males and females could have a father complex, which in turn might be either positive or negative.2
