More bad advice today from Annie Lane!

Dear Annie: I’ve been very happily married for several years to a man I love deeply. Suddenly, his son from a previous marriage, who lives in another state, wants Dad to move to his state to be close to him, as he and his wife are planning a family. His son and I have neverContinue reading “More bad advice today from Annie Lane!”

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!”

There were no jacks at the fair, but…

Oh my goodness. Four years ago, I was involved with someone named Mart. I knew him online, and he’s the person who introduced me to Sonya, my best friend. My relationship with him was disastrous. We were like fire and gasoline. I wanted him desperately, but he wasn’t interested. He played head games with me,Continue reading “There were no jacks at the fair, but…”

Being dumped and being blocked.

Dear Amy: “Trying to Repent” wanted to apologize to his former girlfriend for his abusive behavior during the relationship. Your advice NOT to contact her was well-put. A woman I dated in the past reached out and apologized for the way she handled things. I was genuinely upset she messaged me and waited two weeksContinue reading “Being dumped and being blocked.”

We’re feeling trigger happy!

Do you ever find yourself tracking people from your past, keeping an eye on them online, that sort of thing? Well, I’ve been doing that with Ash, my former friend whom I haven’t heard one word from. I have a stalker facebook account, and I think she knew I was using it, because she deletedContinue reading “We’re feeling trigger happy!”

The ghosts of friends past.

Dear Amy: I really identified with the letter from “Ghosted by a Friend,” in fact, I thought that letter could be about me, because I’m the one who does this to others. I can cut people out of my life, (work or personal), in a heartbeat. It’s a learned behavior from my parents. My siblingContinue reading “The ghosts of friends past.”

Updates from my world today!

I wish I had some exciting news to report, but I don’t. My life has been surprisingly hum-drum, and I don’t know what to make of that. I was so bored last night that I went to the gym and did some treadmilling. I’m not sure which direction my life is headed in. I finishedContinue reading “Updates from my world today!”

I’m ridiculously on the fence in both letters here!

Dear Annie: My sister passed away in September, and I was really looking forward to spending an evening with her family during Christmas. I’d not really been close with her husband or children in the past, but it’s important to me to spend time with them now. Well, apparently, my ex-husband has been invited toContinue reading “I’m ridiculously on the fence in both letters here!”

Ask Amy’s column today is pretty darned good!

Dear Amy: I am in a terrible relationship that’s lasted two tumultuous years. I met him after recovering from an operation. I had been alone for years, as my life was consumed by raising my children, pulling a boy out of a war zone and teaching music. Unfortunately, my boyfriend is a liar. He’s hadContinue reading “Ask Amy’s column today is pretty darned good!”
