His Cheating Business Card
I met this guy at a party and I was really attracted to him but he was wearing a wedding ring. Later when I was leaving he came up to me and said he found me very attractive, handed me his card and said to give him a call. Is it possible he’s a widow and still wears the ring? Should I call?
Confused in Chicago
I have two little words for you – no and no. I take all wedding rings as little rings of truth. My very best guess is he’s married, a cheater and looking for fresh bait. I spy trouble ahead.
Put the phone down, set his card on fire or cut it into tiny pieces and eat them, but remove all traces of him from your life.
It’s almost comical… almost.
Beach Blanket Bingo
First of all I must mention that I am quite particular about my wardrobe. I don’t seek out trendy clothes or expensive labels, just what I like. I definitely do not dress for others, but for myself and what I feel good in as well as love.
Recently, my boyfriend asked me to go for a casual walk on the beach. I don’t really own beachy outfits as I rarely go. So when I showed up in my usual long flowing outfit he said I looked like I was dressed for dinner. I believe that is better than putting on a tiny bathing suit and being mistaken for a beached whale don’t you?
Any advice on this?
First of all yes, never go out of your way to look like a whale. However, it’s great to hear you dress for yourself and not others, which I assume would be time consuming, expensive and confusing. I personally have regressed in my dressing since the start of Covid. I put on a pair of sweatpants and never looked back. OMG, darlin’ you haven’t lived until you wear those soft baggy pants.
As for your beach wear, I say at a certain age the more flowing the better as only hairless supermodels can pull off those itsy bitsy swim outfits. Hairless! They obviously require a full body wax which to me seems like an extreme sport — and only for the young and very high. Shoot me now! Btw I hope your boyfriend was wearing baggy swim shorts as old guys in Speedos… just say “no” even if they manscape!
Next time tell him you’re not available until dinner.

Funny and good advice as usual.
I too ❤️ sweatpants and shirts, and I was way ahead of the covid curve on this one; honest, I was born that way. Remember that Carnaby Street attire from back in the 60’s? Nauseatingly un-American, you ask me. We are a CASUAL people!
I still have my original “I’m With Stupid” t shirt. I’m not with Stupid anymore though, for obvious reasons.
I had my Beasts of the East Mets t-shirt until it disappeared in the wash one day as it was so worn it gave up ad died . I am trying desperatey to wean myself from COVID clothes yet today I went out in pagama bottoms! Very comfy
