*een there Now over it's profile:

At 64 yo I've been in a number of relationships and gone thru a lot of life's experiences. We all have rocky times in our lives but I have done my best with each instance and am the happiest and most successful person I know. I am upbeat and optimistic, and always try to make others feel the same.

I am a fiction (video) and non-fiction (books) writer. Several years ago I started perusing Dear Cupid for story and character ideas for my fictional stuff. On November 10, 2015, I had shoulder surgery (rotator cuff), which resulted in my left arm being tied to my side, 24/7, for the next month. I was here at home and continued to browse Dear Cupid, and finally decided to post some answers. I am giving what I hope is helpful Dear Cupid advice for any situations where I feel I may be of some help. I read most of the Questions but answer only a minority of them. If I don't answer a question, it is either because 1) I don't feel I have any good advice to give or add, or 2) the info provided in the Question isn't sufficient for me to make a judgement.

My favorite quote: "People tend to believe two things...what they want to believe and what scares the hell out of them." I read that in 'The Week' magazine and I'm so often reminded of it. I don't know who came up with that.

A.   20 August 2017: He is deep enough into this stuff that you can't expect him to change. I don't buy the "just flirting on-line" excuse. Had someone come onto him he probably would have jumped at the chance. You have quite a bit invested in this guy and I'd like ... (read in full...)

Should I invite my estranged dad?

Q.   Hey Guys! I'm engaged and am due to have a small intimate wedding in January. My issue is that I don’t want to invite my dad. My dad and I don't have a relationship whats-so-ever. My mom passed away when I was 1 1/2 and didn't step up to take care ...

A.   20 August 2017: Your other family members know the situation and will respect you more if you don't invite him. And they should certainly understand. He probably doesn't want to come to your wedding, anyway, and would probably be a cloud over the event for you. ... (read in full...)

A.   20 August 2017: Can you move out of there? I don't know the laws in Great Britain but the laws and penalties here in the USA are very, very harsh when it comes to sexual contact with a 16-year-old. I understand that you are not having sex with him or encouraging ... (read in full...)

A.   13 August 2017: There's nothing wrong with not having a lot of friends, especially if you are focused on raising your child. I have a nice home that I've set up so I can pursue my many interests. It is difficult to pry me away from here. Sometimes I feel like I ... (read in full...)

My best friend's boyfriend tells me he loves me.

Q.   So my best friend's boyfriend likes me and her and I like him as well. I feel horrible for liking him even though I liked him before they started going out. He says we should just wait even though he keeps telling me he loves me. I don't know what ...

A.   13 August 2017: If they break up and you start dating him, you will lose your best friend! And he'll have a designated back-up for when he messes things up with you. This guy is not worth it. I'm not for snitching, but if your friend is having sex with him I'd ... (read in full...)

A.   14 July 2017: HR should have been made aware of this at the time, but I don't see them being able to do anything, at least at this point. As you requested, he's stopped hitting on you, and HR would probably tell you that he doesn't seem to be a threat and that ... (read in full...)
