Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I’m 15 and my parents won’t let me date. I try to talk to them about it often, but they are convinced I’m going to get hurt or lose my virginity. I think I’m old enough to have a small relationship. I don’t believe in premarital sex, and neither does the guy I like. I know I’m mature...
DEAR ABBY: My friend “Virginia” and I have known each other for 11 years. Five years ago she went into renal failure and was on dialysis for three years. It was hard on her and she needed a kidney transplant. Her three healthy siblings refused to be tested as a possible match. Virginia is on the...
DEAR ABBY: I have a complicated family situation. My dad was married to a woman named “Cynthia” for 16 years until they divorced. He met and married my mother the next year. My parents were married for 40 years, until Mom died of cancer a year ago. Since her death, I have gone with my dad to a few...
DEAR ABBY: My best friend, “Kate,” approached me on a matter I’m uncomfortable with. For the last 12 years we have laughed, cried, consulted on everything we struggle with and shared our joys. Kate has a great marriage. I’m struggling with the decision to remain in mine. Recently, Kate, her...
DEAR ABBY: I have been concerned about my parents for some time now. They are elderly and live in a retirement community. They have a very nice home and don’t have to worry about money. The problem is, they drink every day — sometimes from noon to when they go to bed. Many times, their drinking...
DEAR ABBY: For health reasons, I had been walking during my lunch break at work. That ended last summer when someone unleashed his dog between his house and his car. The dog saw me on the sidewalk, charged, jumped on me and bit me. Thankfully, I put my arm up, so it only got my arm, but now I’m...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 15-year-old girl, and I’m madly in love with my boyfriend. The only problem is, I can’t tell anyone but my closest friends about him. I met him over the internet, and he’s an amazing guy. I didn’t think I’d ever fall in love with him, but I did. He lives in New York, and I’m...
DEAR ABBY: I am 32 years old and divorced my wife two years ago. Although I tried dating for a bit, it was a brave new world of online apps and profiles. It wasn’t for me, and I became discouraged. A year has gone by and female friends are telling me I need to get back out and date. I find the...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 21-year-old college student. Recently, my cousin (also 21) moved in with my parents and me because her mom is verbally and mentally abusive. Lately, I’m having issues with her being here. She constantly barges into my room, leaving me no time for myself. Most days she ends up...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 40-year-old man, divorced with teenage children, and have been exclusively dating a woman who has a 4-year-old daughter. There have been no clashes between our children. We have yet to have sex. When I’m over at her place, I sleep on the living room floor either on an...
