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!”

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!”

Why do we fall for shallow men?!

DEAR ABBY: For a long time, I have been in love with a man who is 15 years younger than I am. We had a relationship for about a year, which ended six years ago. Since then, we have remained friends and occasionally hooked up a few times. The short relationship we had was closeContinue reading “Why do we fall for shallow men?!”

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose…

DEAR MISS MANNERS: How does one deal with false modesty? I found myself caught flat-footed when chatting with a textile artist. I joked that he could be the one to help me with my blanket stitch, and he responded that his handwork wasn’t very good. Fine; I’d been mostly kidding anyway. But then he wentContinue reading “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose…”

Self-absorption, controlling tendencies, and more self-absorption.

Dear Amy: I’m undergoing treatment for breast cancer. People have had some very odd reactions to the baldness caused by my chemotherapy. I’m not asking for advice on how to handle it, but I am seeking an explanation. I find it very strange that several friends have asked to see me bald. Those who seeContinue reading “Self-absorption, controlling tendencies, and more self-absorption.”

Mesmerizing Meg is on call today!

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: Okay, so a Coach/Trainer asked if he could use my premises for a daylong workshop he was conducting. He further added that I could attend it too. No money was discussed at all. And during the conversations there was no talk about any fee that I would need to remit.  Initially, IContinue reading “Mesmerizing Meg is on call today!”

Here’s to lost opportunities to help people!

Dear Amy: I’m a woman, currently dating a man younger than me. He pursued me relentlessly before I agreed to go out with him. On our first date, I leaned in to kiss him and he got a terrified look on his face and blurted out, “I’m gay!” I immediately left and avoided him forContinue reading “Here’s to lost opportunities to help people!”

Good night, John Boy. No, really. Go to sleep and leave me alone!

Dear Annie: My son has been dating a girl for a little over three years. My husband and I really like her. Our son loves her. Here’s the problem: I have asked her before to help in the kitchen with meal preparation and cleanup, and she refuses. They come once a week for meals, andContinue reading “Good night, John Boy. No, really. Go to sleep and leave me alone!”
