He also did have a good or short relationship with his mothers- "flings". Still, the closest thing to a dad had to be Dan who was married to his mother. After her death John wasn't able to live with him after he developed somewhat of a drinking problem. Either way he was always there for John. That didn't fill the void though, John wanted to know at least who his father was.

In the story we examine the different types of men in John's life. For him before Tabitha met Dan, men seemed to come and go. With his mothers free spirit, it seemed like men would always seem to come and go. Over the years after her death that did become some type or an issue.
