DEAR ABBY: I'm a 51-year-old gay male. I have a sweet, dear friend I'll call "Samantha" who is slightly older. The problem is, she wants more than friendship. She insists on spending time with me and calls me daily. She hugs me repeatedly when she goes to leave, and kisses my neck or cheek -- whichever she can get to.

Read, watch, listen

To paraphrase the Dos Equis commercial, I don't listen to rock music much anymore, but when I do it's often after reading an intriguing essay or book about a band I grew up with. I'll then go back to their best albums and perhaps even watch film clips or movies about them.

Hog Calls: NCAA Preliminary track meets waste time, money

posted: 05/30/2016 1 a.m. Discuss

posted: 05/29/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I am a 65-year-old widow and recently started dating a 66-year-old man. I really like him and enjoy his company. However, one thing about him drives me up a wall.
