Carrying a Torch After an Affair

Dear Robin:

I had a brief but very intense love affair several years ago. The relationship ended for one big reason that I can’t discuss, but when we broke up it was very hard on both of us.

I am a middle-age man who has been in love before and I am married, but I have never had a connection with anyone like I did with her. I miss her and I think about her all the time.

How Do I Lose Weight?

Dear Robin:

Long time fan, first time writer! My husband is tired of hearing me complain about my weight but I’m sure he’d be happy if I did something about it. When we married almost 20 years ago I weighed 140 but today I am closer to 190.

Do you have any advice for me? This probably seems like a dumb question because I know you have some serious things coming to you every day, but it matters to me. I am free to talk by email if you want more detail.*
