    An absolute game for the ages. I was so wrung out afterwards, I felt like a wet dishrag. Never been so tired in my life. Changed my Pats gear once, and it actually seemed to provide a spark (OK, I kno more »

    If you've already got this guy under the microscope, it's only going to get worse. But it sounds as if truly the problem is not anybody in particular, but you. Perfection doesn't exist my dear. If tha more »

    LW, I find this letter deeply disturbing, but not for the reasons you outline.  Sure the guy is a creep and his anger issues, flaring over his own behavior, would really scare me.  But frankly I'm mor more »

    Why on earth do you want to accept a coffee "date" with her?  To discuss what, and resolve what?  I think the less said the better--in fact nothing, works for me.  You had no intention of asking her t more »

    I only just caught wind of this, trying to toggle between BostonGlobe.com and Boston.com [the Globe has the worst designed online websites of any major newspaper, you can only comment on one site but more »

    LW, please please don't think your kids dont' know what's going on.  They do, in spades.  Kids have a 6th sense about problems with parents, arguments or no arguements.  Tension is palpable and not sa more »

    I'm very excited about this choice, for its boldness.  Andris is young, enthusiastic, and a very energetic presence on the podium.  The concert I saw him conduct in January, which debuted a young Latv more »

    All music directors continue to have other commitments.  No conductor conducts solely for his home orchestra.  Look at the bright side: this guy wants to live here!  With Levine, you truly had a part- more »

    Oh, Meredith, I am so very sorry.  I liked your mother the second I met her at Ann Landers.  Then I saw her briefly at your book party.  Not knowing her, or you well, I remember when she spoke about m more »

    Meredith: I rarely rarely check LL these days, but did so just now and am absolutely dismayed about you and your mom.  I did meet her, remember, at the Ann Landers play.  My thoughts and prayers to ou more »

    Elizabeth Bennet nailed it.  Don't lose sleep over this, because you just werent on the same page.  You have every right to want to be exclusive with a guy you're sleeping with.  Men have an easier ti more »

    Excellent points, these.  May I also suggest the writer not date anyone for 3 months.  Yes, get used to being on your own for once.  You might be surprised at what you learn.   Not a great idea to jum more »

    Excellent and thoughtful answer Miss Fussy!

    I kind of agree.  For all you know, you represent the "good mother" he doesn't have.  A 10 year age difference means nothing at older ages, but he's 24, which is still pretty much an adolescent these more »

  • Posted 02/27/2013 11:11:19 EST

    Absolutely agree.  You shouldn't be "negotiating" with the person who wronged you.  The person who wronged you should be bending over backwards to show behavioral change. But back to you: maybe you sh more »

    I just read this letter and was sort of amazed that someone in her 30s, married no less, could be so abolutely cavalier and careless about what is, for all intents and purposes a legal commitment. The more »

    I agree with those who say this LW needs continued help for even asking if she should respond.  LW, please recite 100 times a day: "I dodged a dangerous bullet."  "I dodged a dangerous bullet".  Repea more »

    I second everyone saying, "ask him out."  But I also suggest just being pretty casual about it--refer back to your initial rejection, and eimply say, "I was in a different place then.  How would you l more »

  • Posted 01/15/2013 03:58:01 EST

    What a crock.  Every suggestion is bad, except maybe the responding to texts too soon.  I particularly hate the one about not ever spending money on a date, this isn't 1960, and many women earn a lot more »

    I read statements like this: “I don’t like getting injections,” she said. “If everyone else gets it, I won’t need to.”    And I just shake my head.   Because everybody looks to the next pe more »

    Posted 01/09/2013 09:19:14 EST

    The ideal, dear LW, would be to get another job. Clearly not possible, so the next best thing is to get real real busy. This guy is occupying too much space in your head, and until you get some psycho more »

  • Posted 01/03/2013 09:41:58 EST

    Dear LW: the real problem is the drama you have created without owning up to it. Every decision that led to the current mess you find yourself in, started with you. And when you write: "I do not mind more »

    The spirit was willing, but the flesh .............. At least he didn't kill anyone while driving, since he managed to park his car on Bill's lawn.  Knowing Bill, he'd just tell the guy to "get honest more »
