Ask Amy: Husband’s new friend becomes a menace

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My husband and I are in our mid-70s

“Steve” is 20 years younger. He befriended my husband and started stopping by our house, offering help with technical problems.

Steve would chat with me and then head to the "man cave" to watch sports on TV, etc. with my husband.

He seemed nice.

A couple of months ago, Steve grabbed my face with both hands and kissed me full on the mouth.

This was not a friendly peck on the cheek. He overpowered me.


I was so shocked that I just stepped back and was silent.

After that, whenever Steve was expected at the house, I would “hide out” in my backyard studio.

One day he arrived earlier than expected, and when I opened my studio door, he was standing in the doorway.

I pushed past him and left. I decided to finally tell my husband what was going on.
