Dear Abby

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...
DEAR ABBY: I have a problem with my two younger sisters. Neither one can have children. I have three. Recently, one of my sisters turned my sweetest daughter against me by telling her I had “abandoned her” when I moved to Ohio with my oldest son and divorced their father. Not true! I left my...
DEAR ABBY: How should I respond to someone who keeps her smartphone on and “fact-checks” anything that is mentioned in a group conversation? She’s my brother’s girlfriend, “Marla,” and she’s not a teenager. She’s in her late 40s. I consider it rude. She invariably interjects a comment to confirm...
DEAR ABBY: I am recently engaged, and both my fiance and his mother keep trying to set up “play dates” between his mom, my mom and me. I understand this may be a social norm so the mothers of an engaged couple can get to know each other during the engagement. However, my mom wants nothing to do...
DEAR ABBY: About six months ago, I started a new job I really enjoy. A handyman who does odd jobs around the building was working on the floor in my area. He was chatty and I made polite conversation, but now things have escalated. He has started contacting me on social media to the point where...
