Recycling people?

Dear Amy: I recently reconnected with a man I was engaged to, many years ago. We have not gotten together in person because we live several hours away from one another and are both in our 70s. The problem is that he blames me for a breakup that happened 50 years ago! (His perception isContinue reading “Recycling people?”

Ebenezer Scrooge and gift cards.

Dear Amy: Every year, my husband receives a text message from his sister asking what our two children would like for Christmas. She does not acknowledge our children’s birthdays or any other special milestone that would warrant a call, a card or a gift; but at Christmas she always sends gift cards. My children andContinue reading “Ebenezer Scrooge and gift cards.”

Say what?!

Dear Amy: Before the pandemic, I met a wonderful woman and fell in love. The catch? She was from New Zealand and had to return home in November 2019. She and I made arrangements for me to move there. Then the pandemic hit and created unending border closures. My flight was canceled by the airline.Continue reading “Say what?!”

The intention table!

I’ve created an intention table to bring the sort of love I want into my life. It was sort of Sonya’s idea, but she said I should list the qualities of a man and rate those qualities in order of importance. I’ve done a bit of that in my mind, and here’s the first mostContinue reading “The intention table!”

Huh. Interesting issues.

Dear Amy: I’m a man in my late-50s. I’m currently dating — or trying to date. It’s clear to me now that I’ll never know women, so please explain what just happened here: I met a woman on a dating app, and we had one of those perfect first dates — lots of laughs, lotsContinue reading “Huh. Interesting issues.”

What happens in Prague…

Holy exhaustion! I’m about to keel over and die. I just spent hours and hours and hours walking around Prague with Sonya and Georg. It was great fun, getting to know Georg better. In fact, there might be photos… Tell me that guy isn’t stunningly sexy! Because, hello sex appeal! And I’m usually not attractedContinue reading “What happens in Prague…”

Go Meg, go!

I can’t believe this! The guy I like here in Prague seems to like me, too. That never happens! Only for other people! Never for Meg! Go me! His name is Georg. He’s such a dreamboat. In my honor, and referring to me as the guest of honor, he brought home-cooked food to the writersContinue reading “Go Meg, go!”

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!”
