Single father stories

jhnmakii

No incest.

Just a heart warming story of the struggles of being a single father.

Age doesn't matter, the mc could be in his teens, adult-teens, or middle aged.

The mother could be AWOL or dead or separated.

This is a brand new one. All the good guys win and most of the bad guys become good guys. Pure romance and everyone ends up happy. http://storiesonline.net/s/13649/perhaps-love

I was going to include that in my next 'most enjoyed' blog but the story has ended :(

Actually, single father stories are tricky. Aside from 'romantic comedies'--which aren't wildly popular on SOL--there isn't much inherent conflict in such a story. Essentially, you'd need to add the 'single dad' idea to another story with enough interest to drive an entire story.

That's not to say that it can't be done, but that it's not as likely that many will undertake the effort. Zombie, time travel or MC stories essentially write themselves. Nice guy stories--as they often do in real life--finish last! :(

I would probably enjoy a light hearted story of a single father more than any other story here on SOL to be honest, if its drama.. even better.

I could think alot of obstacles/struggles a single father will have to face.

One kind of single father story that would not have to somehow eliminate a wife, or even manufacture a child, would be about a Roman Catholic priest, who is normally called Father.

Or more commonly, a single father discovers a runaway (on SOL), or meets a single mother and bonds with her kid after the couple split up (in the Real World).

Absolutely. Keep your insulin handy if you're anywhere near diabetic. It's also very funny.

Best line (this is not a spoiler): "Are you a retard?"
