Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 20-year-old college student. I have never dated anyone besides my current boyfriend, “Cody.” He’s my first-ever boyfriend. I met him in high school, but we ran into each other in college and quickly began a relationship. We’re now into our third year together. We have professed...
DEAR ABBY: My 7-year-old daughter, “Rosie,” recently came home in tears because a classmate, “Emily,” told her I was a liar and she was an idiot for believing my lies. Then Rosie asked me if I had been the one putting money under her pillow and presents under the tree all along. Ultimately, I told...
DEAR ABBY: I found out a few months ago that my husband, “Hal,” the father of my children, has had affairs with five different women. I left, and we are now being divorced. I desperately wanted revenge, so I have been secretly seeing Hal’s good friend “Ron,” whom he “forbade” me from contacting...
DEAR ABBY: I have been a nurse for 35 years, and over time, I have noticed a decline in simple courtesy from people who visit friends or relatives in the hospital. Several things visitors should keep in mind: 1. If you don’t know what room the patient has been assigned, ASK. Don’t wander in and...
DEAR ABBY: I am turning 40 and have never been married. Lately, on dates, men have started asking me why I’ve never married. It makes me uncomfortable, and I don’t know how to answer them. I have always been attracted to emotionally abusive men and have always been the one to break things off. I...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old girl and I have a boy best friend who is also 14. I liked him the moment I met him, which was exactly a year ago. He says it’s the same for him. We established that we both liked each other months ago, but we’re still only friends. The reason is his parents have a...
DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married three years. It has been rocky since year two. She’s a great mother to our kids, especially the one who is medically challenged. We have broken up twice so far, and are now back together. However, because of my job, we live in different states. Bottom...
DEAR ABBY: After I became an adult and left home, my father remarried a woman with a grown son. “Jack” has been incarcerated for the past several years. I have only vague information about what he did, but I do know it was related to drugs and gang affiliation. His mother insists he was “framed...
DEAR ABBY: I have always struggled with a lack of self-esteem and confidence. I would like to get breast implants. It’s not to seek attention or anything; it’s merely to feel better about myself. Clothes don’t fit me properly, and I am embarrassed. My boyfriend is completely against it. He says...
DEAR ABBY: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Excited in Maryland” (Aug. 16), whose wife makes snide comments about his impending retirement. That milestone is the biggest, scariest life change people make — a time marker like no other. With many people, our identity is tied to our...
