Dear Deanna!


My sister hates my boyfriend because she feels he doesn’t treat me right.  My boyfriend doesn’t like her because he feels she is too nosey.  They always argue, try to embarrass each other and do dirty things to each other.  I’m at the breaking point after my sister stole a check from his checkbook and cashed it.  On the other hand, my boyfriend told her boyfriend that she was cheating.  Where do I draw the line with them before someone gets hurt?


Gina C.                                    Charleston, SC


Dear Gina:


Almost like school kids you would think they have a crush on each other.  You have to decide how much time you have to babysit while they play games.  Take control of your relationship and put your sister in her place.  Your boyfriend needs to know your expectations as you give him your verbal thoughts on dealing with your sister.  If he doesn’t behave erase him and remember that boyfriends without rings come and go, but sisters are always around.


Dear Deanna!


I’m tired of my friends borrowing my clothes.  I’ve just finished college and have a good job.  The clothes I buy are for work because I have to be professional.  My friends think things are still the same as college and high school.  I feel they should find their own clothes for interviews and not borrow mine.  I’m now being accused of being snobby and thinking I’m better than they are because I’m working.  How to I get through to them and keep our friendship?


Working Girl                           Toledo, OH


Dear Working Girl:


You’re becoming mature and leaving your friends still in the arms of their teenage years.  If you really want to help, tell them where you buy your clothes and get them connected to your shopping resources.  Now that you’re in the workforce, you can coach them on finding employment and share your success story.  This should provide motivation and continue your sisterhood of sharing.  If they don’t respond, then hold your head high and keep it moving.


Dear Deanna!


After a few years of dating I decided to leave a relationship and go back to an old one.  This was a mistake.  The woman I went to lied to me, has a crazy ex-husband and was pregnant when we got together.  I left this relationship immediately and tried to go back to the first woman.  She has forgiven me but said she will only take me back after I have a DNA test.  Meanwhile, she said if she finds someone else, then it’s over.  Am I wrong for still wanting her?


Brandon                                  Omaha, NE


Dear Brandon:


You’re a selfish man living in your own fantasy world.  You broke up with this woman for a reason and got more of the drama that caused you to leave in the first place.  You’re lucky the first woman didn’t skin you like a cat.  The universe has a way of righting itself so you shouldn’t be surprised if she decided to take the risk and move on without you.  Regardless of the outcome of the DNA test, you should prepare yourself to be alone or look for another love.
