    Mom/Dad side of the family.

    I'm desperate for your thoughts on this issue.

    Is their such a thing as 'spending too much time with one side of the family'. Someone accused me of spending too much time with one side of the family, which is untrue, but I feel pretty bad.

    Not really, just spend more time with the side you feel more comfortable with.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    No, there is just that side you're more comfortable with. That's why there are two sides, they aren't the same.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    No, i all depends on who you are closer too, you can't make people like you just because your related. Thing dont react well when bonds are forced anyway. If you would like to you should try and show another side of your family some time for bonding, but you dont have too, you make not mix well with the otherside....in a nutshell, follow your heart.

    ^^This basically. I wouldn't know about sides of a family as much since I didn't know either of my Grandmas or Grandpas so I guess I'll let others explain.

    Nah, not really. Depends how close you live and how often you've seen them in the past.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    You shouldn't feel bad man, maybe that side of your family are more friendly and well more comfortable than the other.
    Everyone spends more time with others without even knowing it themselves.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    It's not quite a bad thing, but if your family members are important to you just sort out who you feel as if you should spend more time with. Personally I don't spend enough time with my dad's side. I don't live with him and I have two younger half siblings that I really care for, yet haven't had to the time to go see. If it's wrong..? Well, that just depends on you my friend.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    If It makes you feel better I haven't seen anyone on my mothers side of the family in 15 years.

    I just hang out with my dad's family all the time, I just find being around them more enjoyable than my other side. Nothing really wrong with that, you shouldn't have to make yourself uncomfortable

    personally I'm very close to each parent but obviously my dad's side because it's much bigger and they all live close it's which ever one you feel most comfortable that you should hang out with

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    man, id rather not spend time with either of my family member. or at least not for a while. not because either side is worse (although my mother's is quite religious, and im not), but because my folks are crazy and ignorant. also i need to focus on my own needs and play ketchup with my life. a difficult thing to do whilst always being preoccupied with visits, birthdays, holidays, doing things for others; and im also quite lazy. all and all a family can make you a better, worse, or both, person. just do what you can within reason of your own well being.

    My moms family lives in another country and disowned her so I never had that problem.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    I don't understand how its anyone's business.Its your life,and you spend time with who you feel the most comfortable. If anyone has a problem with that,then they should change their behavior around you so that you generally want to spend more time with them.

    But I suggest you should spend time with both sides,so that it seems equivalent at an extent,in order to escape criticism.

    That is unfair to you. Tell them to wise up and not to b*tch at you. If they can't enjoy time with you don't give them it.

    15 years?! Damn. Most of my moms side lives nearby where I live whereas my dads side is split up.

    Re: Mom/Dad side of the family.

    Nope. As long as you know in your mind that you love both equally (or maybe favor one side more than the other, we're all human, but still have love for the other) than your fine.

    And it's not like you have much control if you only have access to one side. And there are a lot of other factors.

    It depends on if you can relate to the less-time side of the family more, if they have anybody who you consider both family and a friend, the age groups and stuff and junk like that. But try to get the best of both worlds, there's nobody like fam.

    Well that depends on you,but it never hurts to try,but its in no way a obligation.But one should socialize,in order to create awareness in a community.

    Extended? It depends what you consider extended family members.I for one,consider the family of third-cousins extended relatives.Overall it never hurts to try.Who knows,maybe you'll find someone you get along with.

    You don't -HAVE- to do anything. Unless a guy is holding a gun up to your head and you want to live then you don't have to do anything.

    I know no one on my dads side because they never get together or want to meet.
