Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I’m 15 and live with my parents. My dad is an alcoholic who has finally figured out that he has had a problem for years. When I was in sixth grade, he left me once in the middle of the night (Mom was out of town) to go out drinking. Ever since that night, I have felt so much pain. I...
DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I bought our house, having children wasn’t yet on our minds. The master bedroom is at one end of the house; the other two bedrooms are at the opposite end. Two years into our marriage we got a surprise blessing — a baby girl. She’s now 3 and still sleeping in our...
DEAR ABBY: I am a divorcee with a problem. My longtime friend “Paul” and I decided to move in together so I could save some money because of my very expensive divorce. The problem is, I think I am falling for him, and I get really jealous when he brings dates home. When I told him I’m starting...
DEAR ABBY: I’m a mostly happily married wife and mother. I love tattoos. When I was younger, I was engaged to my soul mate. His name is tattooed on my wrists in honor of the love we shared. Unfortunately, he was killed in a car accident. Several years later, I met and married my husband, “Brett...
DEAR ABBY: A year ago, I ended a turbulent five-year relationship with my boyfriend, “Alex,” that resulted in a special-needs child. Alex is not living in reality when it comes to our daughter’s disabilities, and his family is not present in her life. Our daughter, “Meghan,” spent months in the...
DEAR ABBY: My husband, who has a beautiful head of dark curly hair, decided to let it grow. It is now about halfway down his back. Sometimes he braids it or pulls it into a ponytail. Other times he wears it down and it falls loose. The problem is, I can’t bear to look at him. He has always been...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old woman. A few months ago, my boyfriend (my very first boyfriend) committed suicide. I feel absolutely destroyed. The problem is, my family doesn’t regard my feelings of grief seriously because our relationship was started and maintained online. We lived several...
DEAR ABBY: My mother calls me all the time. I answer sometimes, but sometimes I don’t because I feel she wants to know too much about my life. I work full time with the public. When I get home, I’m tired. I have talked to people all day long, and I really don’t feel like entertaining her. My...
DEAR ABBY: In my opinion, too many young people today are shortchanged when it comes to manners and etiquette. The knowledge of how wonderful it is to receive written acknowledgment of gifting is rapidly fading. A quick note of appreciation for any kind of thoughtful gesture lifts the giver’s...
DEAR ABBY: My friendships have always included people of different races, religions, nationalities, sexual orientations, professions, etc. A few years ago, I had an experience that was both devastating and humbling on several different levels. It caused me to do a lot of introspection and self-...
