Dear Abby

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...
DEAR ABBY: I need help developing a response to a very rude question. My daughter recently turned 13. It seems that every time we go to a gathering and the moms get together talking, someone will ask me if my daughter has gotten her period yet. It isn’t even a question from people I’m close with...
DEAR ABBY: My beautiful, kindhearted, loving daughter “Cora” has a “best friend” she used to be very close with. However, her friend now has a boyfriend, so Cora doesn’t see her on weekends or receive texts from her very often anymore. Everything they plan to do together, the girl cancels. My...
DEAR ABBY: I have a hard time differentiating between enabling and just helping out my sister. Throughout her adult life, even while she was married, she has never been able to make ends meet. She’s single now and in her 50s, a hardworking but underemployed, depressed individual. I have a good job...
