AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

Temptation asks: I met this guy through friends and we kind of hit it off.  He just asked me if I wanted to see the porn he was in!  He’s also been texting me and asking me to hang out…I have a boyfriend – so does he – so nothing like a date, but I […]

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS WANT WHAT YOU GET

A thoughtful question: My husband is impossible to shop for!  We have an anniversary and his birthday coming up, and the only thing he says he wants is a gift certificate to Amazon.  I hate giving gift cards, especially to my friends and family…what would you do?

GAGGING FOR IT

A choked-up person requests: What do you do when you’re talking to someone about something emotional and they start crying?  What about if it’s you that starts crying?  What do you say?

LISTEN: Take them on a shopping spree?  First to buy new clothes […]

SERVIEEEEWWWW…

An understated and understood undoing: I can not believe I am writing this.  I went to dinner at the home of a new aquaintance (sic) who is a rather eccentric artist.  The food was good but wierdly (sic) prepared.  Things like sweet potatoes stuffed with poached fish and salad made out of raw beets.  Anyway, […]

BANG BANG

An armed inquiry: I have several firearms in my house – two pistols, two rifles and a shotgun.  I keep them all cleaned, maintained and loaded (except for the shotgun).  Do I have an obligation to tell guests about them?  I know some people have an objection to being in a house with guns. LISTEN: […]

FEELGOOD M.D.

An inappropriate situation: My husband (a doctor) and I had a meeting earlier this week with two business partners, one of them a woman, and she leered at him all through the meeting.  What should I do? LISTEN: Ask her to join you in a ménage à trois?
