DEAR ABBY: “Darlene” and I have been friends for 40 years. She moved to Arizona with me in the ’80s from Michigan.
DEAR ABBY: My friend “Lauren” and her husband separated for a few months last summer. During the separation, she had a short fling with my friend “Zack,” whom she met at my house.
DEAR ABBY: My friend “Kate” has had a lot of trauma in her life, and she feels things very deeply.
DEAR ABBY: I’ve been friends with “Lorraine” for 30 years. Actually, the friendship is kind of one-sided because she bugs the hell out of me.
DEAR ABBY: I had this friend that I met eight months ago at a local boxing gym here in Chicago. We got along extremely well and even hung out a couple of times.
