Dear Abby

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...
DEAR ABBY: We are a married couple in our 60s and have no close family. Before retirement, we would playfully tease each other that when we retired, we’d turn our spare bedroom into a “fun fantasy adult room.” Fast forward — we now have our special room, and we’re having a blast. Well, we got a...
DEAR ABBY: I recently took my 5-year-old, “Ralphie,” to his pediatrician. While we were waiting to see the doctor, Ralphie played a game on my phone. Then the doctor knocked on the door, entered, said “hi” and smiled. He called my son’s name and immediately, without any prompts to get Ralphie’s...
DEAR ABBY: I have been with my boyfriend, “Jake,” for a year and a half. To put it mildly, his dad does not like me. He has never thought I was good enough for his son, and he doesn’t like the fact that I have a daughter from an earlier relationship. He thinks I’m interested in Jake only for his...
DEAR ABBY: I have been happily married to my husband, “Mark,” for 20 years. My best friend, “Eric,” is a gay man. For some reason, Mark is threatened by my friendship with Eric. Whenever Eric calls or texts, my husband becomes resentful. It has reached the point that I feel like I need to hide...
DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Rob,” and I are at odds and your response may affect whether we stay together or not. I had a miscarriage a week ago. I was only seven weeks pregnant, but it was still something real for me. My husband’s niece’s birthday was over the weekend. I made it clear that I didn’t...
DEAR ABBY: We visit my grandmother out of state once a year. After our visits, I usually leave feeling defeated. A few reasons why: She leaves multiple notes around “reminding” us to clean up after ourselves. There’s a note in the shower that says, “Please wipe down shower walls after use.” She...
DEAR ABBY: I’m obsessed with having sex. I can’t stop. Ever since I was 8 I’ve been having sex, and now I’m 18. I have a boyfriend I’ve been dating since I was 8, and we can’t stop having sex. I want to stop, but he doesn’t want to. I keep on doing it because he says if I don’t he’ll leave me....
DEAR ABBY: I’m an attractive 30-year-old woman just out of a five-year relationship. I am starting to date again, but I have a complication — I cannot have children. I am wondering when the right time to bring this up with the men I meet would be. After a few dates seems too soon; however, the...
DEAR ABBY: Forty-five years ago I had a mistress. My wife knew about her. Both of our spouses have now passed. I have found her address on the internet, and I’m debating if I should contact her. What do you think? — UNSURE IN IOWA DEAR UNSURE: Because you are both now unencumbered, I don’t see...
