DEAR ABBY: Hospital patient receives surprise anatomy lesson

posted: 06/28/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I recently had to spend a night in the hospital following minor surgery. One of the female techs taking care of me leaned over me to straighten out the bedding and I could see "everything" when the top of her scrubs fell open.

DEAR ABBY: Widower finds companionship, but isn't ready for romance

posted: 06/27/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My wife died of cancer four years ago. She was my best friend, and the pain of losing her was more than I could cope with. I was in a fog for about two years, just going through the motions. Eventually the fear of spending the next 20 to 30 years alone drove me to try internet dating. I met some nice women and some very strange ones, but nothing came of it.

DEAR ABBY: Hospice volunteer's woeful tales wear her family down

posted: 06/26/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My mother has been a hospice volunteer for six months. I think that's great. The problem is, all she ever talks about anymore is the families and patients she helps. I'm tired of coming home from school or work and hearing about her latest patient's family drama or the details about how they died. My grandmother, who also lives with us, is burned out from it, too.

Dear Abby: Hands off until a date stimulates your mind

posted: 06/25/2017 2:20 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I'm a single 38-year-old woman. I haven't been in a relationship in more than 10 years because of school, work and kids. Lately, since I graduated, I have been on a string of blind dates. Men seem to want to hold my hand, touch my hair, stroke my arm, etc., right away. When I say I don't like it, they say they are "just being affectionate" because they like me.

DEAR ABBY: Family communication gap is sparked by dad's disapproval

posted: 06/24/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: We are from the Middle East. My younger brother married an American woman and moved to Arizona, where her family lives. Because our dad didn't approve, my brother made the plans behind our back and told Dad in an email. He also didn't mention that they were moving until a week before the wedding.

DEAR ABBY: Serial father keeps chummy relationships with his exes

posted: 06/23/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I recently met a 28-year-old father of three I'm interested in. He seems wonderful. He's a hard worker, takes care of his responsibilities and is an amazing father to his children. They're all still very little, but they're great kids.

DEAR ABBY: Girlfriend deserves to know about man's abusive past

posted: 06/22/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My brother is in a long-term relationship. Throughout my teenage years, he raped me every chance he got. The emotional and physical abuse has left my life broken. Should I tell his girlfriend about it? I did confront him about it, but he just denied it. Wouldn't she want to know? -- SURVIVOR IN FLORIDA

DEAR ABBY: Gal pals can't see positives in woman's open marriage

posted: 06/21/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Friend finds gender fluidity a hard concept to follow

posted: 06/20/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I have a longtime friend I see almost every day. She's an awesome friend. Her children are adults. One of them is gay; the other is a transgender male. I respect her for supporting her children, learning everything there is to know about the LGBT community and seeking social change on their behalf.

posted: 06/19/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I am a 28-year-old female. I recently married the most amazing man in the whole world, "Jeremy." We connect, communicate, understand and love everything about each other. My only issue is, Jeremy has an obsession/fetish with women smoking cigarettes.

DEAR ABBY: Mom wins: Not wise leaving 15-year-olds at home alone

posted: 06/18/2017 2:05 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I've never written to you before, but I'm having a disagreement with my husband. We are taking our daughter out of state to drop her off at college in August. Our twin 15-year-old boys will be starting high school at the same time.

DEAR ABBY: Teen's behavior draws strong words from concerned readers

posted: 06/17/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: Regarding "Needs a Playmate" (Feb. 15), I agreed with your advice to 7-year-old "Jessie's" mom to make it clear that what happened was not her daughter's fault, and that "Jason" was in the wrong. You also addressed Jason's mother's unwillingness to deal with the issue. However, I don't believe your advice went far enough.

DEAR ABBY: Teen tells mom to stay away during his band performances

posted: 06/16/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My 15-year-old son will be entering 10th grade. He has been a member of the school band since sixth grade. After performing in last year's Christmas parade, a group of the students went to a nursing home to perform for the residents. When we arrived, I started to get out of the car with my son so I could listen, as other parents were doing. My son seemed surprised that I was going to stay and said he would rather I didn't because I make him nervous. Needless to say, I was devastated.

DEAR ABBY: Sweethearts struggling with a 30-year age gap

posted: 06/15/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I'm in my late 20s and have a male companion who is 30-plus years older than I am. We were together for a while, then stopped so we could both try to find someone closer to our ages. Neither of us did, and we recently started seeing each other again.

DEAR ABBY: Man's old tryst with wife's yoga teacher causes strain

posted: 06/14/2017 1 a.m. Comment 1

DEAR ABBY: My wife recently started a new yoga class she really likes. But I made the mistake of telling her that the instructor and I had dated briefly (had sex) when we were around 15. I am 50 now and my wife is 45. I was a promiscuous drunk when I was in high school and college. I have been sober now for 28 years, and we have been together for 22 years. I have not been with another woman since I met my wife.
