I've calmed down a lot, but I used to be a total pain in the ass and I really want to show him how much I appreciate him. My Dad's life is his job, so he doesn't really have any personal interests that I know of. What I do know is that he's kinda stressed out, is always on the go, and hasn't had the best luck with women since my Mom died. If you could help me out, that would be great. Thanks! - Kim"
Hi Kim! I'm Found of You, and my husband is a huge fan of your dad. He told me a little about him, and here's what I came up with: The way I see it, you could go in one of two directions:
Go with who he is: Your Dad is pretty handy, tortures people when he deems it necessary, can tolerate some serious pain himself, is famous for the Jack Bauer sleeper hold, and and you said, is always on the go.
