DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for about a year. He was a virgin when we met. Three months into the relationship we had sex. I am 18 and he is 21.

We used to have sex often, but now he is completely uninterested in anything sexual. I feel like he isn't attracted to me anymore, although I haven't changed much since we started dating.

Other than sex, we have a great relationship. We haven't had a single fight, but it hurts my feelings that he doesn't want to have sex with me anymore. What's the solution to our problem?-- TEEN IN ST. GEORGE, UTAH

DEAR TEEN: Have a frank, non-confrontational talk with your boyfriend and ask him what has changed. It may be that the novelty wore off. He may have a low sex drive, or he may be interested in women only as friends. But you will never know until you ask him. When you do, let him know that whatever his answer is, you care about him and you hope he feels the same way about you.

DEAR ABBY: My 31-year-old daughter, "Layla," is beautiful, accomplished and earns a good living. She has a lot of friends and always has a boyfriend. She has had both long-term and short-term relationships.

Layla isn't married and hopes to meet the right person. I'm very anxious about it, but this is her life and her choice. People constantly ask, "How's your daughter? Is she seeing anyone?" And when I meet someone for the first time who asks about my children, the second question they ask is, "Is she married?" (They don't ask that about my son.)

This is painful for me. What should I say in response to this omnipresent question?-- LAYLA'S MOM

DEAR MOM: All you have to do is smile and say: "My daughter is single, loves her job and is quite successful. Now tell me about your children."

DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for eight years. My daughter is learning how to drive. In her mother's car, while under her mother's supervision, she hit their garage door.

My ex believes I should pay half the cost of the new garage door. Also, she did a total upgrade, turning the entrance to the garage into one large door instead of two. I say I shouldn't have to pay. She says if it was someone else's house we would pay. I agree, but it is not, and my ex-wife was in the car -- not me.-- WHO PAYS? IN CALIFORNIA

DEAR WHO PAYS?: She pays. It should not be your responsibility to foot half the bill for an upgrade to your ex's garage door, particularly because she was the one who was with your daughter when the accident occurred. Don't let her bamboozle you.

DEAR ABBY: I'm not too tall or too short. I'm not overweight or too thin. I never receive comments about my appearance that cause me to be sensitive. My husband doesn't drink, abuse me or stray. I have had no problems through the years with family members, neighbors or co-workers. My grown children are thoughtful, considerate and loving. Even my in-laws love me.

So tell me, did you ever receive a letter such as this?-- JOY IN SAN DIEGO

DEAR JOY: Not in recent history. And it's probably because people regard my column as a place to dump their troubles rather than share their many blessings, as you have done today.

1- Why don't you focus on your education, career goals, and your future instead of fking your boyfriends? Whorecon 2.

2- Lady, there are worse things than not being married at 31. Would you rather she'd be on her third divorce and raising four kids on her own? Count your blessings.

Actually, if it was somebody else's house, I believe that their homeowner's insurance and your car insurance would be involved.

Their homeowner's insurance would talk to your car insurance, and your car insurance would pay for the necessary repairs less your deductible.

??? If your kid rams his car into my garage, the only way I'm reporting it to my insurance company is if you're a deadbeat and don't pay. If you decide report it to your car insurance company and get the money that way, that's your business, but I see no reason to involve my insurance company.

Is she being loud or disruptive? If not, I'm not seeing a problem. Would it be better if she was reading the National Enquirer?

L1: Have you tried asking him instead of Abby?

L2: Why are you "very anxious" about your daughter getting married? If she's happy and successful, isn't that great? Let HER worry about finding the right person to marry.

L3: No, you shouldn't pay. But maybe stop by over there one day and find your ex's purse so you can get your balls back.

L4: Thanks for this pointless letter.

Off topic. Thank you for Sharan Newman. I will add 300 years and recommend Margaret Fraser and the Dame Frevisse series.

Wrong approach. Report it as soon as possible. It won't count against you if the other insurance pays but your company could deny the claim altogether if you report it to them late. Trust me on this one.

Loud, yes. Disruptive, depends on whether or not you like being blessed by a total stranger.

I thought she was going to turn into the loud, disruptive sort, with lots of hand-clapping and singing. Nope, other than the blessing stuff, she was a completely regular commuter.

Right!

Oh, wait. There is. It's called the 1st Amendment, which allows her to bless whomever she likes.

But the law does not say I have to like it.

I don't know how a woman could be so terrible at it that a man would be uninterested in it, especially one who is seemingly so receptive to the act, such as the LW is.

L1: He might be gay or it may be medical (as in low testosterone) or he might be getting it from someone else. Time to sit down and have a chat.

L2: Don't take every question from people so seriously.

L3: Um, no. She is a betch and you need to ignore. If you need a new entrance yourself or some other work around your house, have your daughter smash something in your house and demand the ex pay half.(How about tearing up the front lawn and get new landscaping around the house or something like that!)

L4: Well, we don't love you and you sound like you're bragging. If you have that good you should be contributing to society to make it a better place instead of writing to Abby. Then you could brag about that, too.
