Around Algona fey OMITA DIBftiKSEN Phtffo If M*0 J This Guy's Not Marrying Kind By Abigail Van Buren I* IN? * CMUft TrltaM-N. Y. NMH int.. Int.] DEAR ABBY: I am engaged to a guy who can't seem to make up his mind whether he wants to get married. We have had FOUR blood tests [you can't get married in this state without one] and every time we go to get married he changes his mind and we put it off. 1 am 22 and he is 21, but I don't think he's ready to settle down yet. We both work, so money isn't the problem. We have gone together off and on since high school, so we know each other pretty well. He says he loves me and I know I love him. Have you any advice for me? NEEDING ADVICE DEAR NEEDING: Yes. Give your blood to the Red Cross and find another guy. He's not ready. DEAR ABBY: Not long ago I wrote you a letter, telling about my miserable homelife. I said my mother was a tramp and my father would get drunk and beat me for no reason at all. Then I told you that I turned .to my boy friend for the love I needed and he got me pregnant, and I was considering suicide. I gave you my name and address begging you to hurry your answer. Well, I just received the most wonderful letter from you, Abby. You gave, me some good advice, with hope and encouragement for the future. And you sent me the name of a home for unwed mothers nearby where I could go for help. Then you closed with "Good luck, Dear, and God bless you." Well, Abby, my letter was a bunch of made up lies. I have a good homelife and I don't even have a steady boy friend and I surely am not pregnant. I feel so sorry for what I did. Please forgive me. I promise never to do a thing like that again. ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: I can usually spot a phony letter, but when a girl is "in trouble" I take no chances and answer accordingly. [Some of the wildest situations are "real."]. You're forgiven, but if you have the urge to do any more "creative writing," please spare me.' ^ DEAR ABBY: Everywhere you turn you hear about sex, which is the most overrated thing in the world, if you ask me. I have been married for 24 years with practically no sex. He doesn't bother me and I don't bother him. I was considered quite a doll in my day, and I haven't changed much. Blonde, 5 ft. 5, weight 115. Yes, we have children. Three of them. [And I had a job talking my husband into it]. I have a full length mink coat, a leopard jacket and a mink stole. My husband is a professional man, well liked and handsome. Looks sexy, but looks can fool you. I play a good game of bridge and consistently break 90 in golf. I keep busy, and enjoy life and if I'm neurotic, frustrated or heading for a nervous breakdown I havn't seen any signs of it yet. Nobody knows what I'm missing but me. ' SATISFIED HIM HUN* Mr*.
