Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I have had a best friend for more than 20 years. We met when we were 18 and have been inseparable ever since. I was best man in his wedding, and when his first child was born, I traveled six hours to be at the hospital when “Sara” was born. I have never missed a birthday or Christmas...
DEAR ABBY: I have known “Kathy” for 13 years. Her parents moved up the street from us when we were both 2. I don’t remember much when we were younger, but everyone says we had some good times. We are now 15 and in our first year of high school. My problem is, Kathy has changed. She started going...
DEAR ABBY: I am an atheist. My parents, although raised Presbyterian, never to my knowledge participated in organized religion, so it was not part of my upbringing. Last year my mom started going to church again, and my kids have been going with her. I’ve always said they can make their own...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old woman, and I know I should have a lot more patience than I do right now. I’m happily married with two beautiful children. After work when I return home, I’m fine for the first hour or so. But if my children start to get loud or keep asking me to do something, I get...
DEAR ABBY: I bought my 11-year-old daughter a cellphone. My ex does not approve. We have been divorced for six years, and he still can’t get over it. He despises me. He refuses to listen to why I want her to have a cellphone. While I want her to be responsible with it, I realize she will make...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 58-year-old female. My mother passed away in my home almost exactly a year ago. I took care of her for the last three years of her life. After she died, my brother and his wife came to my home at 1:30 p.m. The funeral home didn’t arrive to pick her up until 8:30 that night....
DEAR ABBY: My friend “Russ” is a sweet, quiet, reserved guy with a goofy side. He’s in his mid-20s, but has never kissed a girl or gone out on a date. (He is the kind of person girls regard as a brother figure.) He has no confidence and doesn’t drink, dance or let loose. I have seen his dating...
DEAR ABBY: I need your help in dealing with an old “frenemy.” “Jenny” and I were friends in high school, but she constantly berated me and accused me of taking advantage of her. She would make herself feel better by putting me down. After she went away to college, she got pregnant by a non-...
DEAR ABBY: My mom wants me to exercise more. Currently, I just walk a lot (in my house and around the block). I know exercise is a good idea, but I’m really self-conscious about it. I never feel like I’m doing it right (because I know you can easily pull a muscle), and I feel like everyone else in...
BOSTON (AP) — Mayors share many common concerns about poverty, racial and income inequality and immigration, regardless of party affiliation or whether they are from red or blue states. That’s according to interviews with more than 100 mayors in 41 states conducted by the Boston University...
