Son odd man out when mom sends birthday gifts

Prince Albert Daily Herald - - OPINION -

have al­ways had guy friends. I find them eas­ier than girls.

My mother says that when you’re in a re­la­tion­ship, it is dis­re­spect­ful to have friends who are guys. My boyfriend and I fight all the time over this is­sue, and I have had to cut off some of my guy friends be­cause of it. I hate not hav­ing any­one to talk to or hang out with ex­cept my boyfriend. It has left me with bad blood be­tween me and my old friends. Is this a rule that I didn’t know about? I just don’t get it, but I know I need help. -- TEEN IN DELAWARE

DEAR TEEN: What your mother may have meant when she said it is dis­re­spect­ful to have male friends when you are in a re­la­tion­ship is that many men find it threat­en­ing. You are young, and at your age it is ap­pro­pri­ate that you should be so­cial­iz­ing with more than one per­son. Your mis­take was in get­ting into an ex­clu­sive re­la­tion­ship with some­one who tells you who you can and can­not be friends with. Break it off, and you may be sad for a while, but you will also be free to grow.

DEAR ABBY: When a large-breasted woman is stand­ing and salut­ing for the na­tional an­them at sport­ing events, where should the right hand be placed? Above her breast, un­der her breast or on her breast? -- JUST WON­DER­ING IN FLORIDA

DEAR JUST WON­DER­ING: It de­pends upon whom the right hand be­longs to. If it’s some­one else’s hand, it should be kept to one­self. If it’s the large-breasted woman’s hand, it should be placed on her chest to­ward the top of her left breast.
