DEAR ABBY: My father has been mostly absent from my life. We reconnected when I was an adult.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a friend, “George,” who rents our upstairs. Our home is large, and the second floor has all the amenities of a 2,500-square-foot house.
DEAR ABBY: I have been friends with “Caroline” for more than 20 years. Her husband is present when they visit us because they live out of state, and when I visit her, he is there.
DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who lived in my home most of the time for about six years. During that period, she rented out rooms in her house.
DEAR ABBY: I frequently socialize with friends who like to participate in debates. We share different opinions on topics such as politics, geopolitical events, etc.
