DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I love my husband, but I've also fallen for his brother. The younger brother offers me what my husband cannot -- friendship. My husband is sexy and intelligent and ambitious and a bit mysterious (reserved). His brother is a very physical handyman who has been helping rebuild our house; he's here almost every day -- friendly and open and chatty and makes a lot of jokes. I just love being around him. The two guys even look similar. Everything was going smoothly and I had the complete ideal man in the combo, until last Friday when we suddenly kissed passionately. Yes, he's also married, and to a very nice little mouse. He claims he has never even kissed another woman before. Now what? Please help. -- Guilty But Greedy, Winnipeg
Dear G&G: Back off this younger brother! You bagged your brother already. And how could you be part of tearing the two apart? Often brothers who are different, love each other because they complete one another. You have to find your complete picture with a combination of your husband and best girlfriend or a wonderful funny gay friend. If you got together with the funny brother, you'd soon miss your dashing and mysterious husband because that's what you chose in the first place. Encourage more friendship and humour with your own reserved man. And stop being together in the house with the brother.
Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I had a big knock-down drag-out fight with my father in a parking lot and we are no longer talking. At first I thought I hated him, but now I miss him. I won the fight because I'm 20 years younger and built.. Why was he mad? Because I called my mother, who has cheated on him many times, a drunk and a sl--. That's what she is. I'm not speaking to her either, but I love my father. He's the one who raised me. -- Broken Hearted, 21
Dear Broken Hearted: He probably wants you back, too. Call him when he's not around and leave a message saying you're sorry, you love and miss him and you want to be friends again. You don't have to say what you're not sorry for. Give him two days to digest your message. If you don't hear from him, your mom may have erased it before he could hear it. Call him at work.
