WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19, 1998 PAGE 3 Guy's romance throws him for quite a loop Dear Abby: I was recently in a relationship for eight months. It started when I was 22. My now ex-girlfriend (I'll call her Sue) was 18. Abby, we fell in love quickly. I gave her my all. Her family loved me and mine loved her. She said I treated her better than she had ever been treated. (I was raised that way.) I respected her, loved her and never mistreated her. In the fifth month of our relationship, I proposed. She accepted. Sue recently went on vacation with some girlfriends. The vacation had been planned before we met. I didn't object. I told her to go, and that I trusted her. Well, she was gone for a week during which I never received even one phone call. When Sue returned, I was at the airport with open arms. Within 24 hours of her return, she announced that she wanted to call it quits. She said she wanted her freedom, that she was too young to have her life planned. She swore she hadn't cheated on me during her vacation. She told me she knows she'll never find anyone who will treat her as well as I have. I was heartbroken. It's been a month, and Sue has gone "wild" since the vacation. A family member confided that Sue had confessed to cheating on me during the vacation. Abby, women 'used to complain that guys have no morals, treated them wrong and cheated on them. Today, the roles are often reversed. Women claim they want a guy who will treat them right, open the car door, bring flowers, etc. Abby, that's me! I don't understand how Sue could have claimed to love me and then been unfaithful. I have dated for the past eight years, and I've never been this much in love. I know the obvious response to this is that I'm young and have plenty of time; however, I must ask: Where are all the "nice girls"? One of the Last Nice Guys Dear Nice Guy: One day you will realize how fortunate you are that this happened before you married Sue. She may have been swept off her feet by your marriage proposal, but she's far too immature for marriage. Count your blessings and keep looking. There are nice girls everywhere, waiting to be recognized by someone who has as much to offer as you. Dear Abby: My girlfriend, "Terri," and I are both 19. We have been dating for 18 months. Abby, I never get to see my friends anymore. Every time I tell Terri I want to be with my friends, she throws a fit and we get into an argument. She thinks I should spend all my time with her. It's like she's jealous when I choose to be with my friends for a day. Abby, I miss my friends. I'm not bored with Terri, I just need time with my friends. Feels Confined In Pacifica, Calif. Dear Feels Confined: Terri may be more insecure than jealous. She needs to work on this, because one of the surest ways to sabotage a relationship is to make the other person feel confined. Of course you need time with your friends, and Terri needs time with hers. You are not joined at the hip. Part of developing as individuals is maintaining separate interests. If you have put up with this for a year and a half, you must like Terri very much. However, I hope you'll consider what I have said, and insist on a degree of independence for both of you.

It may not have an engine, but it does rely on power — human power. Bicyclists of all ages compete with all kinds of traffic and due to the size and speed of the bicycle, there is great risk to the rider. Let's take a look at some things that can be done to reduce the risk and ensure safety and fun when bicycling. The bicycle, like any other vehicle, needs to be in tip top condition and "fit" the rider. Make sure your bike is the proper size. A bike that is too big or too small will be hard to control. For Fit: When standing on the ground there should be a 1-3" gap between the child and the top bar. Cara's Corner Cara Nell Decker County Extension flgent More room will be needed for a mountain bike. Bike Seat: Is it adjusted to the proper height? When sitting on the seat with the foot on the pedal, the leg should be slightly bent. For Reflectors: Reflectors should be on the front and rear of a bike. The rear should be red and should be at least 3" across. Check that the reflector is pointed straight back to reflect the headlights of cars that are coming from the rear. The front reflector is usually standard on new bicycles and it should be white, most new ones are round and 2" wide. Bike Chain: The chain should be clean and lubricated. If it's not, take it to the local bike shop for a checkup. The Brakes: Brakes should have even pressure. They should make the back wheels skid on dry pavement, but should not skid. The Tires: Tires need to be properly inflated. The side of the tire has the manufacturer's guidelines. Use a tire pressure gauge to test for inflation.
