Ms. Meniscus

The advice lady who's not afraid to tackle all manner of life & love questions

The Cell Phone

I really want a phone but my dad is refusing -- saying it's going to be expensive! What shall I do? -- Megan in Montana

A Relationship's Downward Spiral

My boyfriend and I moved in together a few months ago and things just aren't the way they were before. There is no conversation, no affection (although I try my hardest) and he just seems so uninterested. I need some advice on how to get back on track because we are losing each other. -- Sally in San Diego

The Warring Siblings

My sister and I have been raging back and forth at each other over this year's presidential election. Does this mean we'll be fighting forever? -- Tommy in Tupelo

The Noisy Chewer

My sister chews so loudly at the breakfast table, I feel like my head is going to explode. How do I make it stop? -- Nathan in Newark

The Friend Who Bails

My friend keeps bailing on me when we make plans together. I had to eat dinner alone -- again -- the other night because of this. What do I do? -- Sam in Salem

The Remote Controller

My husband refuses to let me hold the remote when we're watching TV. What should I do? -- Mary in Mississippi

The Lonely, Single Arthritic

Despite having a total hip replacement, and obvious joint deformities of the hands, I am a dance teacher and hide things very well. I never let anyone get too close and now I'm terrified of ending up alone. What do I do? -- J in Jasper

The Distant Son

My son and I used to have conversations all night long -- giggling and telling jokes, he telling me about his day, his dreams, the future. But we don't talk anymore. One day it just stopped. What can I do to bring that back? -- Mary in Maine

The Flaky Friend

I have this friend who keeps taking advantage of me and all our other friends. He blows people off, he's constantly late, you can never count on him for anything -- yet he weasels his way into commitments no one wants to make with him. How do I keep from losing my mind? -- Mad Matt

Stuck in a Rut

Dear Ms. Meniscus, My life is not moving forward. I'm stuck in a job I don't like. What should I do? -- Holly in Hawaii
