J'ai manqué mon père.
Mon père me manque.
Is there a difference？
This is tricky for learners.
I you want to say -
I missed my father
in the sense that you arrived too late to see him, you would probably use a verb like 'rater'.
J'ai raté mon avion = I missed my plane
but to miss someone ( emotionally) you use manquer but it has a strange construction.
Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson -
Mon père me manque = I miss my father
Je manque à mon père = My father misses me
I hope this helps!
My father misses me.
Yes, these are clearly different. I don't see how you could think they are the same?
[Edit] Looks like I learned something there too!
