Ask Amy: Family secret destroys a lifelong friendship

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: “On the Fence” wondered how to respond if her best friend asks if she “likes” the friend’s fiancé.

I would lower the boom softly, saying something like, “No, I don't. He doesn't have any positive qualities that I can see.”

When (or if) the friend asks for more detail, BOOM.

– IMO

Dear IMO: BOOM, indeed!
