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!”

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Therapy.

Dear Annie: I have been technically single all my life. I did have a casual long-term relationship with a man that lasted for 12 years. We were never exclusive. We would have never worked exclusively, and we both knew that. That relationship ended badly. An unplanned pregnancy resulted in a painful miscarriage that required surgery.Continue reading “Blah, blah, blah, blah. Therapy.”

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.”

Fun times with advice commentary today!

Dear Annie: I’ve been married to a man for 17 years. But not long after the marriage, he stopped being a husband. At first, we would talk, laugh and have fun. We would do things together, go places and, most of all, we would make love all the time. It’s been 10 years since weContinue reading “Fun times with advice commentary today!”

Have a wonderful, splendiferous day!

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Please address the issue of customer service people who tell everyone to “have a good one.” At numerous stores and restaurants, upon leaving, I am told to “have a good one.” I am so tempted to say, “A good what?” What happened to, “Have a nice day”? GENTLE READER: It was smotheredContinue reading “Have a wonderful, splendiferous day!”

Difficult for Annie Lane to create good content!

Dear Annie: More than 65 years ago, my mother was a military wife, a German “war bride” and an orphan from the war. This means that I had no grandparents on my mother’s side of the family. So, we always went to my father’s parents’ house on Christmas Day, but this led to some frustrations,Continue reading “Difficult for Annie Lane to create good content!”

It ripped through the night.

So, last night I fell asleep analyzing what went wrong, and then several hours later, I shrieked like a banshee. Sonya was still up—she keeps late hours—and heard it through her headset. When she told me this morning, I immediately remembered its happening. I don’t recall the nightmare, but I do recall thinking, uh oh,Continue reading “It ripped through the night.”

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!”
