For me, it's my dad. I'm pretty close to both, but my dad is more laid back. He feels more like a friend I can talk to. (And he lets me get away with a lot more than she does. >_<) I love my mum, but we don't spend that much 1x1 time together and I don't feel like she understands me as well.
Now that I think about it, some of this might be related to weed. I was always a little closer to my dad, but the gap has gotten a lot bigger in the last couple years, and I think it's because my dad and I smoke together. My mum doesn't really approve. : /

For me it is also my dad. He's a very relaxed person, which somehow applies to me. We are compatible.

In my mom's life it is/wad all about activity, right contacts and career. She pushed us kids along that way. Even the leisure time was entirely planned and filled with activities to prepare us for a life with the best career chances. And that wasn't my world.

And for a year and a half, there was war between me and my mom. Total war.
But finally, she unnerved agred that I could live with dad. And living with him that was best time in my life so far .

Meanwhile the relationship with mom has more relaxed. And she surprised me. She now lives in the north of Sweden. In a region that, imo, doesn't really fit her. Rather to me. It is a very remote area. And to live there, I would even die. She's ... she was a city skicker. Sort of.

I travelled a lot with Dad. And we've also done a lot in our spare time. For example, strolling spontaneously through Paris seeking for cool graffities. Or similar in Brussels. But there we looked at comic scenes from classic european comics on the walls of the houses.

When Dad's girlfriend moved in with her three kids, something evolved what I call family .

That is pretty unusual. I think if she's up to the challenge of something like that, it must have been something she's wanted a lot, for a long time. I take it you're not close enough to know much about her?

I get on better with my Dad. We are exactly the same. We have similar intrests and he's totally laid back. We both like sports, support the same teams, listen to the same type of music etc. I got to Dad first if I've got any issues or problems. He seems to understand my frustrations and anger issues more than mum. I love my mum to bits but she is less understanding. We clash and row often.

Do you guys think gender plays a role in which parent you're closer to?

Not always but I imagine it does help. Fathers are able to relate to their sons easier than women and vice versa. I would think that family dynamics would play a big role. For example if your parents split up and you pretty much spent all your childhood with one parent, then odds are you're going to be closer to the one that's raised you.
