Still sorry after all these years

Dear Annie: Thirty years ago, when I was 11, I got into an argument on the school bus with another kid my age. I was an insecure child, and I was losing the argument and feeling humiliated. In a move to try to regain some power, I called the other kid, who is black, a […]

Out of jail, but still trapped

Dear Annie: My father was in prison for my entire childhood. I am now 23 and have managed to build a good relationship with him since he was released two years ago. Recently, Dad became very ill and stopped breathing. He was on life support for a week. Because I am his closest relative, I […]

Family splits on dealing with brother

Dear Annie: My father recently passed away. Dad was helping to support my 43-year-old brother, “Ben,” who suffers from depression and is on disability. Ben doesn’t work and spends a great deal of time in bed or buying liquor and lottery tickets. He’s always just a little bit out of it, and I think his […]

Tired of disgusting habit

Dear Annie: My husband and I meet up with a group of family and close friends every week for lunch. One couple in this group (a close family member and her spouse) constantly blow their noses during our get-togethers. They use cloth handkerchiefs, which are then reused multiple times, and her husband picks his nose, […]

Remember this day’s meaning

Dear Readers: Memorial Day has become a three-day holiday of picnics and cookouts. But there is a reason for this commemoration, so please remember the servicemen and women who died serving their country. Consider visiting a veterans hospital or military cemetery and paying your respects. At 3 p.m. local time, the National Moment of Remembrance […]

Workplace getting toxic

Dear Annie: I work in an office with 35 women, and it seems as though someone is always hating someone else. Right now, I am the target of two women. One of these women used to be my friend, and I have no idea why she isn’t any longer. I once asked her about it, […]

Now she can be different girl

Dear Annie: I’ve been seeing (and sleeping with) “Jordan’” for eight months. We met at the gym, and I asked him out because I had an amazing feeling about him. Since then, I’ve become totally infatuated. He is one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. I thought I saw a future for us. But […]

Letting him down easy

Dear Annie: I am 17 years old and still in high school. I recently became “Jake’s” girlfriend. We’ve been dating for about a week. I’ve known Jake as a friend for a year, and we hang out with the same group. I never had feelings for him until I learned that he liked me, and […]

He’s feeling like a sucker

Dear Annie: I recently dated a woman who never offered to pay for a meal, a movie or so much as an ice cream cone. We went out several times. We’re both in our late 50s and earn good incomes. She says she won’t pay for things until she is in a committed relationship. I […]

It must be a great apartment

Dear Annie: I have been with “Joe” since his wife died nine years ago. The problem is, we have different styles of communication. At first, it wasn’t too bad. I have tried to analyze our fights to see what I could do differently or what we could do together to make it better. But I […]

Showing up empty-handed

Dear Annie: My daughter recently married for the first time. Her attendants were her three best friends. Their friendship goes back 20 years, and they still regularly get together for a girls’ night out. My daughter attended all of their weddings. For each, she hosted a bridal luncheon. At her rehearsal dinner, my daughter presented […]

Wants to do it on her own

Dear Annie: I’d like to start a small business, but I’m afraid to mingle my finances with my husband’s. We have a house, which is paid off and in both of our names. I have money in my retirement account and about $10,000 in savings. When I spoke to a banker about using home equity […]

Stick to your health and the weather

Dear Annie: My best friend, “Clara,” and I have known each other for 30 years. We’re both retired and live in the same town. Neither of us has a husband. We talk on the phone every day. We get along fine, except we have never been able to talk politics. If I don’t agree with […]

The squeaky wheel gets the refund

Dear Annie: I have a problem with one of my best friends, and I hope you can help. “Monique” and I recently split the cost of a hotel room so we could enjoy a weekend of shopping and relaxation. We experienced a few problems with the room, nothing major, but Monique complained to the manager […]
