After 2d Date She Lost Out By Abigail Van Bur en |e mr tf CMcin Trlkmt-N. V. Ntw*' Int., Inc.! . , . DEAR ABBY: A few months ago I got a girl friend of mine a date with an eligible bachelor! After he took her out once he told me he thought she was "charming." Naturally, 1 wanted to make her feel good, so I told her what he said and I built it up a little. After the second date he told me he found her to be extremely aggressive, possessive, and very eager -to get married. He also said that she has lots of problems, whiten he doesn't need right now. He hasn't called her back and I'm sure he doesn't intend to. My girl friend keeps asking me why he doesn't call her. What can I tell her to get her off my neck? I could say he thinks she is a little too. young for him. Or that I think he has somebody else. Or maybe I should tell her what he REALLY said about her so she won't be so forward with other men and scare them off like she did this one. , THE FIXER DEAR FIXER: Don't tell her anything. She !• obvlonly the type who comes, on very strong, and any eligible man who dates her gets her message load and clear. x You won't change her personality, even with a well-intended tip. And chances are she will quote you, and • you'll lose the man's friendship. Maybe not. but that's usually the way It works out. DEAR ABBY: My problem concerns my best friend. I am married and have a 13-month-old daughter. This friend, who is also married, invited my husband and me to her Home last evening. We took our daughter, Angela, along and had a very nice time just talking. There were other guests, too. My friend called me this morning, very upset. She said that Angela had taken an ashtray and banged it against her brand-new cedar chest, and the chest was ruined. I didn't " notice Angela doing this, and neither did my husband. My friend said SHE noticed it but didn't want to say anything in front of the other guests. I told her I was very sorry and even offered to pay to have the cedar chest repaired, but she said it couldn't be repaired. Now what should I do? I apologized and said I'd never bring my child to her home again, but she still wasn't satisfied. What more can I do? I hate to lose her friendship. ANGELA'S MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: Your "friend" is obviously angling for a new cedar chest at your expense. If yon feel that obligated, offer to buy her one. Whether your "friendship" survives this episode is doubtful. If not. the 1 loss will not be great. DEAR ABBY: The father who advised his son [in Viet Nam] to marry his girl as soon as he kissed her hello io Hawaii, deserves applause. We only wish we had given our son,thatjadyice. His girl met him in Hawaii, too, and you know they didn't play gin rummy all night. They had a hurry-up wedding later [much later], and altho they are very happy, and we are, too, now, they could have spared her parents, and us, a lot of embarrassment had they postponed their honeymoon until after the marriage. By the ,way, she had been taking the pill. The result: TWINS! GRANDMA WITH PICTURES IN HER PURSE CONFIDENTIAL TO "ALWAYS BROKE IN LOUISVILLE:" I have neither the time nor space to give you the lecture yon deserve, but years ago I saw a sign ever a cash register in a restaurant'which summed it up nicely. It read: "PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR CREDIT. YOU KNEW YESTERDAY YOU WOULD HAVE TO EAT TODAY." Problems? Write to Abby, Box 68700, LM Aof«kf, Cat, 90069.
