Dear Ms. Meniscus, I have this huge crush on a boy. How do I get him to notice me? - Kendra in Kentucky
Dear Ms. Meniscus, My wife of almost eight years told me the other day that she had been lying to me about her past. She was the first woman I had ever been with, and had told me I was her first as well. I have to say initially it hurt imagining that, but the real problem for me is the honesty. I am not sure that I can trust her any more. How do I know she is not lying about being faithful in our marriage? I am having a real hard time forgiving her. How can I get over this? -Agonized Amir
Dear Ms. Meniscus, I am having trouble with my fiance. We have been together for almost six years, but lately we argue. A lot. I am not sure about my feelings for him, but I am scared of being alone. What can I do? -Kasey in Concordia

Dear Ms. Meniscus, I'm gay and when I came out a few years ago, it was terrifying and I was so scared of losing all of my friends. But most of them were really cool about it. Things have quieted down, and I even have a boyfriend now. But it's my parents -- I haven't told them yet. And I don't know how to. They're very conservative and, though I was afraid to lose my friends, I'm REALLY afraid to lose my parents. What do I do? -Determined in Dover
Dear Ms. Meniscus, I have been dating a Christian man who has his own Gospel Group. He told me he had been divorced about six months, separated for almost a year. After dating for almost three months, his wife (!) told me that she found out about ME, which made HER ask for a divorce. He allowed me to fall in love with him BEFORE telling me he was still MARRIED. I have never been married and am a very loving person. I am having such a hard time walking away because of course he starts saying everything I want to hear. PLEASE tell me how to gain the courage and strength to WALK AWAY. -Chipped Crystal
