DEAR ABBY: One of my sons is dating a young woman who seems to care deeply for him, but is very cool and distant to our family. He goes to nearly all of her family's events, but she seldom comes to any of ours. Is there anything I or we could do to help her warm up to us? -- FLUMMOXED MOM IN THE SOUTH

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly a year. He has several female friends I have met and like very much. However, one of them texts him every day. How can I make him understand that they can still be friends, but he needs some boundaries? -- FED UP IN NY

My dilemma: I am smitten, to say the least, with an attractive, supportive and very loving man. I have invited him over and introduced him to the girls, which went well until the other night, when my 22-year-old overheard us being intimate (her bedroom is next to mine).

Don't I have just as much right to enjoy my home as they do? -- GETTING BACK TO IT IN NEW YORK
