High school sophomore struggles to get over crush on an older student
Dear Abby: I’m a sophomore in high school, and I’m in love with a senior. I met him a year ago when we had some classes together. We liked each other, but because of our age difference, we never dated. I thought I would get over him over the summer, but I didn’t. We don’t see each other at all this year, and I’m almost sure he’s moved on. I feel like I need to move on, too, but deep down I really don’t want to. I’m worried I’ll never find someone I like as much as him. Help me get on with my life.

Dear Stuck: A way to move forward would be to give yourself less time to think about him. Stay busy and keep your mind
Dear Abby: This has been happening for years, and I would like your advice, please. I like my meat well done. But whenever I order a steak that way, someone at the table invariably has to comment that I am ruining the texture, killing the taste, etc. Red or rare meat disgusts me. If I see blood on my plate, I can eat only the well-done parts. Is there a nice way of telling other people to mind their own business and let me order my food the way I want it? — Still Moving
