Ask Amy: Daughter worries about dad’s behavior

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

There isn’t any place for her to sleep, except in my bed.

I don’t know much about her. She has an ex-boyfriend who seems to bother her, which is one reason she wants to move. She is also filing for divorce from her husband in another country.

She works two jobs and keeps strange hours.

We haven’t been intimate yet, but we both want to be.

My life would really change if she lived here.

I don’t know if just being friends and sleeping in the same bed without being intimate will work, while we are still getting to know each other.


Your thoughts?

Dear Wondering: On the one hand: Nope. No, no, no.

On the other hand, maybe the pandemic has prevented you from attending live theater. Allowing this stranger into your home (and your bed) would be your guaranteed ticket to nonstop drama.
