So, Father's Day is coming up ...

Is it weird that I like my girlfriend's father much more than I like my own father? My gf's father is a laid-back stoner, but more importantly, he's always been accepting of me and my relationship with his daughter. My father, on the other hand, is so conservative and old-fashioned (he's pushing 80 years old) that I refuse to come out to him, and in general I can't find much to talk about with him. I haven't even seen my father is more than a year, and I know that I should feel guilty, but it is what it is.

On a related note, I always address my girlfriend's father as Mr. (last name) even though he insists on me using his first name. I just can't do it. That would be like calling my own father by his first name, and even if I don't get along with him, I would never ever address him by his given name.
