Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I am a 65-year-old woman, attractive and lonely. I am uncomfortable using dating sites because I have genital herpes. I was infected by my first husband more than 40 years ago. If I were to meet someone on one of those sites, when would be the right time to reveal my problem? After we...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I go away once a year and leave our two toddlers with family. This year, their aunt couldn’t watch them, so we asked his cousin “Renee,” who we have always liked, to watch them. She agreed, and we paid her $150 for the weekend. We also bought food she liked and stocked...
DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my husband for five years. He’s the man of my dreams, and we have a wonderful marriage. Recently we learned that his ex-wife — to whom he was married for 20 years — has been diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer. They have two adult children together. I have...
DEAR ABBY: I have been happily married to “Roger” for 20 years and have two kids still at home. They are pretty independent now, but my husband was very involved in coaching and volunteering when they were younger. Sometimes when Roger and I take walks, we run into children playing in a yard or...
DEAR ABBY: I am a mother of three and happily married to my kids’ father. I am now seven months pregnant with my fourth baby, but this child is not my husband’s. My husband is a loving man and a good father. My problem is, I don’t know how to tell him I’m not carrying his baby. The man I slept...
DEAR ABBY: I met my boyfriend, “Matt,” when I was a sophomore in high school. We started dating when I was a senior. By then, he was already active-duty military. We weren’t serious at the time (his decision, not mine). We’ve always had a long-distance relationship. During his first deployment,...
DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, my boyfriend broke up with me by sending me a note. We had been together for 14 years. His boss had introduced him to a twice-divorced woman with three kids. What really hurts me is he started his new relationship with a lie. He told her he wasn’t involved with anyone....
DEAR ABBY: I’m an active, 60-something wife, mother and grandmother who was recently diagnosed with early stage Parkinson’s disease. From all outward appearances, I appear healthy and I’m living my life as normally as possible, as my neurologist suggested.  My symptom manifests as a right-sided...
DEAR ABBY: My ex is a recovering drug addict. We have a 2-year-old son together. I realized he was using drugs when I was seven months pregnant and all our money was gone. I stayed with him for a year after I learned about his addiction. That year was the hardest year of my life. Choosing to...
DEAR ABBY: I moved to the Philippines five years ago. While I was there I met “Emma.” After a few months, I realized I was in love with her, and last year we became engaged. I took her to meet my family. They loved her and supported our engagement. I’m now living in the States and she’s still in...
