She insists on spending time with me and calls me daily. She hugs me repeatedly when she goes to leave, and kisses my neck or cheek — whichever she can get to.

Dear Abby | Man’s long fingernails are touchy subject for girlfriend

Dear Abby: I am a 65-year-old widow and recently started dating a 66-year-old man. I really like him and enjoy his company. However, one thing about him drives me up a wall.
