NEW YORK – Its common to say I Love you Mom, but anytime you say that three words for your father? If not then you are not alone, almost 25 percent people shy to express their feeling about dad.
One in four people feel too awkward to say ‘I love you’ to their dad, according to new research.
Nearly half (49 per cent) only greet their dad verbally when they see them, preferring not to hug, kiss or even shake hands.
Four out of nine (44 per cent) admit they don’t always say ‘thank you’ to their dad when he has helped them, while 43 per cent reckon they should probably say ‘I love you’ more often.
And even though some of us can’t tell our dads how we feel, we’re still happy to take his cash, as researchers also found nearly two-thirds of adults (61 per cent) regularly borrow money from their father.
Those who don’t say ‘I Love You’ to their father claim it is because it makes them feel uncomfortable.
The survey also found less than a third (28 per cent) will give their father a hug and a mere 10 per cent will greet him with kisses.
