Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter, a junior in high school, is still living at home. She has befriended a 51-year-old man at her first job (a burger place). We have told her that although she is kind to be friendly with him at work, we feel it’s inappropriate to do things with him outside of work...
DEAR ABBY: Americans are at their best when they unite around a noble purpose. On Memorial Day, that purpose is the National Moment of Remembrance. On that day, all Americans are asked to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time to honor our fallen. In 1971, No Greater Love, a patriotic...
DEAR ABBY: A coworker has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. She’s not sure how long she may have. She is relatively young, so it’s tragic. We have excellent insurance from work, national health care and disability insurance. Another co-worker sent out an email with a link to a crowdfunding...
DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend and I have been together for three years and have a 1-year-old daughter. Unfortunately, our fights have become more frequent now. She suggested counseling, which I agree with. However, she insists I’m the one who is causing the problem and I should go first. Sometimes we...
DEAR ABBY: I recently received a very competitive internship in New York. I’m excited and can’t wait to go. I have never been to New York, and my mom is driving me crazy over it. She’s using my internship as an excuse to go on vacation to “see me,” even though I have told her multiple times that...
DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband has suggested and arranged for a series of spray-tan sessions for my 12-year-old daughter. I feel that telling my preteen girl that she should spray tan is sending her the wrong message, and we should instead be teaching her that she’s beautiful just the way she is. How...
DEAR ABBY: There is a guy that I kind of like at school, but he’s really shy and doesn’t really talk to anybody. I have talked to him a couple times, and he’s really nice and has good manners. He sits with me and my group every day at lunch, and I see him around school. I say hi to him every time...
DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with my high school sweetheart for six years. He is only the second person I have been intimate with. I love him and am pretty sure that we will end up marrying. Neither of us has ever cheated. The problem is that I’m having doubts about my lack of...
DEAR ABBY: “Doesn’t Want to Lose Him” (Dec. 16) wants breast implants, but her boyfriend is against it. I had breast augmentation at age 27 for the same reasons she wants them. I was flat-chested, and clothing, especially summer clothing, never fit or looked right. My husband was supportive, and...
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of 5 1/2 years died unexpectedly. Like so many other Americans, he didn’t have life insurance or any money to cover his funeral. For the last 2 1/2 years I provided the primary financial support when he came and lived with me. His mother made the decisions about the...
