Dear Annie:I met this guy, "Bill," through work. We hit it off. He'd told me he was single. Later, I found out through a mutual colleague that Bill had a girlfriend, "Julie," a divorced lady with two kids, but he wouldn't be able to marry her because his family wouldn't approve their marriage. So, I confronted him. He stated that she was not his girlfriend and that our colleague made the whole story up. Bill and I started dating, and, after a while, I found out that he was still seeing this lady and hanging out with her. I confronted him again, and he stated that it's not going anywhere with her, and she knows that, too. I do not believe that. I think, deep inside, she thinks she is dating a loyal guy and is waiting for him to propose any minute.and I are in our early 70s.
Dear Annie: My wife and I are a retired elderly couple living in a ranch-style home. Over the last four years, my wife has had some health issues and is limited in what she can do. I have been more or less a caregiver, doing all the chores around the house, such as cleaning, washing clothes, cooking and shopping.
I am a 47-year-old married woman with two teenagers. I have a good marriage, although my husband is a difficult person to live with. He has mild OCD, is moody and has a temper. He is driven at work and, though respected in our community, is never romantic or thoughtful. He would never cheat on me, but he takes me for granted.
Dear Annie: My direct manager recently deleted me on the networking website LinkedIn. I have repeatedly asked him, in person and through email, why he deleted me, but I receive nothing but vague responses from him. I feel a lack of respect over his deleting me and even more so when he refuses to tell me why he made this decision. We're both adults here; let's be mature. I was shocked that he removed me from his connections. Should I be concerned about my position at the company? Am I at risk of being fired? -- Linked Out
