Look for talker, not a doer

  • Print

DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I have a boyfriend who's more fun when he's "getting busy" than when he's talking. He's extremely good looking and gets good marks at university, but he's doesn't talk much. I find he's really good in bed and says "I love you" and all that stuff. But, he can't make conversation after his feet hit the floor. The other day I said to him, "Let's talk" and he said, "About what?" I'm 23 and hate to give up the best sex I ever had without a replacement ready to go. Any suggestions to help with the talking end of things? -- Bored Girlfriend, St. James

Dear Bored: Being a good conversationalist is something you are, or you aren't. This guy isn't going to last for long and you're going to have to make a decision. Finding a new partner at age 23, when you're attractive and fun and unfettered isn't that difficult -- especially if you're a good talker. So, take a chance. Set yourself free, and actively look for a new guy who's a great conversationalist.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I'm 15 and came home from my job five minutes late the other night and my parents had locked me out for the night. This not the first time. They are very punishing. I was freezing and the neighbours took me in. They also called the cops because this isn't the first time and the police visited our house. My parents were very embarrassed and said they had no idea I had such a big mouth, and "telling the neighbours a bunch of lies," like about how they forbid me the good food and keep it for themselves. They do other bad things to me but I don't tell because I don't want to be in a foster home. My granny wants me to go live with her. Should I go? -- Ready to Move, Winnipeg

Dear Ready: If your grandmother wants to take care of you and would provide a loving home -- and the parents aren't going to care if you go -- then do it. Kids should have a loving home, but not everybody's parents are good caregivers. You were unlucky, and got a bad pair.
