Daddy Issues vs Father Problems

People throw around the term "daddy issues" and it makes me uncomfortable. We all have father problems, not all of us have daddy issues. Here is the difference in my mind:
  1. If your dad didn't show his emotions often enough, you may have FATHER PROBLEMS.
  2. If you call your boyfriend Daddy, you may have some DADDY ISSUES.
  3. If your dad was too busy to play catch with you/help with homework, you may have FATHER PROBLEMS.
  4. If you only date men old enough to be your actual father, you may have DADDY ISSUES.
  5. If you are mad at your dad because he never understood you/ didn't get your taste in music etc you may have FATHER PROBLEMS.
  6. If you sing about your dad AND older men CONSTANTLY in general in your music you may have DADDY ISSUES @Lanadelrey (where's that girl at, anyway?)
  7. If you are mad at your dad because he always went to strip clubs, you may have FATHER PROBLEMS.
  8. If you are a stripper, it is arguable that you may have some DADDY ISSUES.
    Seriously no judgement. We can blame your dad that's fine.
  9. If you are mad that your dad left your family, you may have serious FATHER PROBLEMS.
  10. If you're an adult and still wear clothes based on what your dad would want you to wear you may have DADDY ISSUES.
    I met someone like this. True story.
  11. If you never met your dad you may end up having both.
  12. To summarize, I think the main difference is that we all have problems with our dads, but they become "daddy" issues once they've buried into our psyches and made us need therapy.
  13. This theory is not fully formed, trying it out here for the first time.
