I treat it like any other day, I don’t do anything special. It really depends though, I am not sensitive about the lack of relationship. BUT I am always in agreement for a treat yo’self day so do it! 


ETA: CHEAT DAAAAAAY get yummy foods too!

I have a crappy mother, so I can relate. Yup, treat yourself in whatever way that you like. Personally I’d get my nails done and then go buy a new book. Maybe get takeout from my favorite restaurant. Avoid social media if seeing people posting about their parents upsets you. Have a good day and don’t let it get you down. smile

My dad passed sesy so it’s just another Sunday for me.

Although I have a slightly different situation (my dad is deceased), I don’t really “do” anything. If you don’t celebrate Father’s Day, it is just another day. You can do something special for yourself if you wish, just like any other day.

I do not a damn thing. I never even know it’s Father’s Day until someone reminds me.

I’m starting to celebrate my fiances father for fathers day these days… But previously I ignored it and spent time with any friends who were free

I celebrate with other fathers. Usually either an uncle or father figure. I’ll usually send my ex father’s day well wishes.

But I think doing a Treat yoself day sounds great!

I was blessed with the most wonderful father in the world …. unfortunately I did not pick a good father for my children, and I live with that guilt. On Fathers Day the kids and I celebrate with my dad (their grandpa) and my brothers.

I no longer speak to my father and honestly I am lucky and have a step-dad who is not a piece of garbage, so I called him and wished him a happy father’s day. 

Other than that, just forget about it and live a normal day, just like any other 🙂 I think I had work that day so I didn’t really have a choice to spend it doing something fun lol… If you want to make it a food cheat day I can’t stop you! 😉
