Inheritances, dead relationships (not necrophilia), and finding resources!

TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE IN CONTEXT OF ADVICE LETTER A note before I get to today’s advices: Someone contacted me and asked me to remove a name from a blog post. I found the blog post in question and couldn’t find any names in it. (This person said that the blog post was coming up withContinue reading “Inheritances, dead relationships (not necrophilia), and finding resources!”

Fun commentary today!

Dear Amy: I’m at a complete loss right now. I am an asexual person in my late-30s. I am in a five-year relationship and am in school pursuing a degree. About six weeks ago, an adult classmate of mine started pursuing a friendship with me (he has a wife and children). We’ve become really closeContinue reading “Fun commentary today!”

The day the friendship died.

Dear Amy: My husband and I are retired. We have a good life in a city that we moved to about seven years ago. We’ve been able to make lots of friends. I’m so pleased by the variety of people in our friend group. What I’m not pleased about is that one of my dearestContinue reading “The day the friendship died.”

Shout-out to my fellow quadragenarians!

Dear Amy: My father has realized his memory is failing and is using this to whitewash his questionable parenting skills. Now I have no closure or recourse on events like his racist outburst of 2012 that led me to a very awkward Thanksgiving in a house full of people I did not know. My dadContinue reading “Shout-out to my fellow quadragenarians!”

Loads of commentary tonight!

Dear Annie: I have been with my partner for 10 years. While he was going through his divorce, his mother lived with us. At the time, she had nothing nice to say about his ex-wife. She acted like seeing her was a chore when one of the children graduated high school (I was not allowedContinue reading “Loads of commentary tonight!”

The pigeons were huge!

I’ve been given an opportunity to make some money. My dad’s paying me quite generously to get rid of the disaster in the garage: wet boxes, styrofoam, and household junk. I’ve been doing manual labor for several days now, and I’m quite determined. I also called and requested a bigger recycling bin, but a lotContinue reading “The pigeons were huge!”

Meg’s favorite alter ego!

Dear Amy: I was in an exclusive monogamous relationship with a man for eight months and, unfortunately, I kept catching him using dating apps, even after I had drawn a hard boundary about it. He also lied to me about substance abuse (he was in Alcoholics Anonymous for years but kept falling off the wagon).Continue reading “Meg’s favorite alter ego!”

The wrong way of looking at it!

Dear Amy: I am a successful woman in my early 30s. I am currently happy in my life. I have a good job, I have both accomplishments in the past and aspirations for the future, I have a loving husband, I take care of myself and feel cared for in my day-to-day life. But IContinue reading “The wrong way of looking at it!”

An advice smorgasbord!

Dear Amy: My teenage daughter had one of her longtime friends over. My 19-year-old son walked into the kitchen to microwave his coffee, and even though he was mere feet away from my daughter’s friend, he did not say hello to her. I think this is very rude. I didn’t think I raised my childrenContinue reading “An advice smorgasbord!”

Hangin’ with the neighbors!

Dear Amy: My husband and I bought a house a year ago. We had, at the time, a 24-foot boat, which we kept in a gravel spot next to the driveway. (The spot was designed for this kind of thing.) By the way, if you don’t know boats, this thing was big and looked evenContinue reading “Hangin’ with the neighbors!”
