    Id say if it goes on too long try jumping in during a lull with a "on a different note, do people know what is good on the menu/have any fun holiday plans, etc." If there is a chance to change the top more »

    I would agree with the comments that quiet people can be disconcerting to a group sometimes, but it's not your fault. I would say don't feel like you have to change yourself, but if there are appropri more »

    Dear Wrong Medford. Shouldn't be in the "Our Town" section. Make sure someone checks these before posting. more »

    I've often thought this. And I've often felt it wrong that our society only acknowledges the importance of a married relationship. Thankfully we can individually do differently. And when I got married more »

    Wow, first time in a while an article by KPD made some sense and was actually readable. Keeping all of the analogies and references to a minimal and the article has some substance. As for the Bruins f more »

    In hockey lots of players take several seasons before you really see what they can do. It's just a different level of play from the juniors and can take time. Seguin was not able to finish plays in th more »

    I would agree that "change" is a bit of an exaggeration here. I clicked on a link that said "change comes to Belmont with election results." I was expecting it was a wholesale change of the selectboar more »

    Sure go. Take part in a session or two. Therapy is great for when someone needs to work through something and can then move on. But I would have a real problem if my significant other needed therapy w more »

    This article started funny but then it just turned out the author is kind of not a gamer and it wasn't all that funny. Sorry she didn't have a good time, but you have to want to. Nothing ventured noth more »

    Just to add one comment that I didn't see... this isn't just about setting personal boundaries. You are married. If a man was making these overtures and you did nothing, I imagine your husband would b more »

    I know this is a terrible topic to have to go into, but I am looking for some advice on how to approach and re-engage friends after the death fo their child. Our friend's baby died just two days after more »

    And I think the question is about party/social/mtg etiquette and conduct. If you replace the language barrier with a different social barrier, it could be a similar problem. I would suggest that the L more »

    Agree with manwithacomments. Certainly felt more sympathy for the twins than Zuckerberg in the movie. Also, I'm pretty sure Zukerberg didn't come from some underprivileged background, so it's hardly a more »

    Agree with most of what's been said. Listen. And learn what your friends are looking for. Most just want an ear. People need to take ownership of their own decisions and often they need to talk them o more »

    I know that no one will read this because it is too far down in the comments, but I feel like everyone is jumping all over this guy unnecessarily. Sure, maybe he isnt as into the LW as she is into him more »

    The issue with the mom is something that your husband should talk to his brothers about helping out. He could ask that they make time once a year to come and help. Also figure out financially if what more »

    I stuttered as a kid and do occasionally as an adult. I can tell you that we don't want sympathy. The worst feeling is trying to say something and having everyone just starring at you, especially with more »

    Posted 12/15/2010 12:31:47 EST

    Ignore the obnoxious comments on here. It's totally okay to feel the way you do and has nothing to do with "this generation" or "not being ready." Years ago when I applied to colleges with a desire to more »

    And for the record, this isn't an etiquette column, which frankly, is why it's interesting. It's an "dealing with sometimes difficult or awkward everyday life issues- column." I don't need someone to more »

    Yes. This is a legal issue. But that issue aside, you should find a social worker to work with you and Edna. There are people that specialize in dealing with the elderly, and they will no doubt have i more »

    I wish I could post Miss Conducts response to the holiday letter situation someplace publicly. I've never been a good bday card/holiday card/bday rememberer. But I still consider myself a thoughtful f more »

    Mailing an actual card is always a nice gesture if you're unsure of what to do for a birthday. I stink at doing it, but I know I always think it nice when I get one. If you're invited to a party, I wo more »

    OOOoo.... Love Letters and Miss Conduct collide! Only good can come out of this. Also, if this is so miserable for you, just change or stop the time you spend with this person. It takes two in any rel more »

    Thing long term before you paint your window frames. The former owners in my house painted most of our windows dark, bold colors like red and black. Since we werent so pleased with the look (we're act more »

    I know of at least two towns in Massachusetts that allow you to visit the Town Clerk's office and vote starting almost a month in advance. There have to be more. Not sure why that isn't mentioned in t more »
