Sorry if this is off topic, it seemed like the most appropriate place I could find.
For reference, I am a 22 y/o male who just graduated university in May. My life revolves around technology (primary hobby, degree, etc) and therefore I am on my computer 90% of my free time. I also live with my parents (close to my full time job - I am not financially dependent on them, just accumulating money before moving to get my own place, but do not pay for rent/food).
My father is coming up on 60 if that matters.
My relationship with my father has always felt sub-par in comparison to my mother. Not that my mother and I are best friends, but we are able to at least talk fairly normally/regularly. The only time my father and I exchange words is when he needs me to do/help with something, or to say goodnight (except occurrences where we are "forced" to talk i.e. in the car together).
We do not have similar interests (I'm into tech and games - your average 22 male, while he is into beer, old music, sports) so there's not much of a commonground. I have tried discussing things I am working on but I can tell that since it's not his area of expertise he's just not as interesting as I am and therefore doesn't feel like I'm really telling anything.
We are not an emotional family and therefore feelings like this are not discussed either.
Another major factor in all of this is that when I was a senior in high-school until sophomore year of college, I was severely sick (in the hospital for probably 1/3 of that time). A thought I had was that due to this, and having to make some life-altering decisions as soon as I turned 18, made me "miss out" on the rebellious end of being a teenager and moving into my twenties, and therefore I'm in that phase currently and just generally being unpleasant to deal with to my father/parents. I'm sure that these few years took a toll on my parents, although they do seem fairly "back to normal".
I don't want to compare myself to a sibling, but my sister has a fantastic relationship with my father as they are both into beer and sports.
My father is not abusive in any way.
I feel extremely bad even thinking about it because I know that I can be moody and frustrating when I want to be left alone and snap or make rude remarks to my parents.
I want to try to amend what I can. I do love my entire family very much and have been very fortunate, but I don't want my current situation to become any more damaged.
I've thought about counseling for this, but while it may help us talk with a counselor, I don't see it changing anything at home. It feels like there are some more fundamental issues that wouldn't change. I haven't brought this up with anyone.
Thanks for the help.
