New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 23, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Wednesday February HERALDZE1TUNO Page 7A AROUND TOWN Woman wonders how to turn office attraction into a date DEAR ABBY DEAR ABBY I never married but I have a 5yearold daughter It has been two years since I moved from my hometown and I havent had a single date here I started a new job last August where I met a man Ill call I have not stopped think ing about him since the day we met Call me crazy but I think he may be attracted to me as well He has flirted with me on many occasions and I see something in his eyes every time he looks at me I am no fool Abby I know when a man is interested The problem is he has not asked me out except for a few lunches In the five months Ive known him he has been out of the country for 2 months j I am usually shy but I confess I did flirt a little to let him know I was interested However I didnt want to appear desperate He is very shy too but I feel deep in my heart that he cares I have grown fond of him and would like to get to know him better I know that I cant just ask him out but I feel there is something spe cial between us What should I do FEELING AWKWARD IN ONTARIO DEAR FEELING AWK WARD Unless there is a com pany policy that forbids co workers fribm dating I see no Reason why you shouldnt ask him to join you for lunch on a weekend or dinner one evening Its leap year so go for broke DEAR ABBY Will you please answer a simple question Why do grooms husbands always think it is the responsibility of the bride wife to write the thank you notes Moreover why do they not know how to write thankyou notes I love my husband but Im about to wring his neck By the way he sees himself as a writing expert and a master of the English language so its not because hes illiterate he just seems lost when it comes to doing this chore I have heard that this is the case with most men CURIOUS DEAR CURIOUS There is absolutely no excuse for some one who is literate not to be able to write a simple thank you note Your husband may have been raised in a male dominated household where writing thankyou notes was considered womens However this is the year 2000 and times have changed The responsibility does not belong solely on your shoulders Divide the chore and have him write to your side of the family while you write to his Consider it just another way to blend the families f DEAR ABBY My daughter is married this summer She will graduate from college in May from a school in Texas The problem is they dont have the money to ship gifts to Arizona I was wondering if it would be proper to ask people to take a picture of the gift they intended to buy and wrap it in a box along iwith a check so my daughter can buy the item when she arrives in Arizona Is that tacky Please advise PLANNING A WED DING DEAR PLANNING It would be improper to bring up the subject of monetary gifts even if it is prettied up by ing that the guests enclose a photo of the gift they had in mind CLUB NOTES Photo submitted The Alamo Metro Chorus will kick up its heels during two performances Saturday at Austins Reagan High School A medley of country sounds musical show tunes and origi nal
