This chapter discusses the influence of fathers, both positive and negative, on how men make friends. Some men want to emulate what their dads do while others distance themselves from their fathers as role models. Some men were raised by dads with many friends, while others by dads who were isolated or who never had time for friends because they worked all the time and dedicated their free time to their family. The chapter concludes with wisdom about friendships accrued from the fathers.

Keywords:   men, fathers, dads, role models, free time, family, wisdom
