Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TiMtday, April 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Doris Clark Reader gives acquaintance 6no go' DEAR DORIS: The Personal Acquaintance Service of The Pastoral Institute, Calgary, supplied to me the name of a lady 75. I wrote her, got no answer; then wrote another very nice person of 65 who answered, but she passed away of a heart attack. A third one, 65, met me in high-flying Women's Lib. No reason in her head and completely domineering, even on a first meeting. So I would suggest a "no go" for P.A.S. of Calgary. I have had no more names for my DEAR DISAPPOINTED: P.A.S. replied to my enquiry about you, as follows: In spite of the fact you are 74 (not mentioned in your you would like to meet women several years younger than yourself. This presents a problem. Your first introduction was to a woman about your age, but in very good health. However, her preferences turned out to be rather rigid divorcees, no social drinking, wrong location. Unfortunately the heart attack victim was the type of risk one always takes. The third looked, from written reports, to have a good chance but both you and the lady presented reasons for your failure to enjoy each other's friendship. P.A.S. is still trying.

DEAR DORIS: To answer "Needing it is no wonder there are so many lonely women. They are looking for a good time only, dancing, sitting in the pubs sipping beer. What do they plan in return? Neither much love, help or understanding; nor willingness to help in building a better home in return for security and love. My dear Needing Consideration, try to be fussy about whom you choose. No dancing or pubs can make up for a long lonely night. I am a family man but believe me I'd rather stay alone if I cannot find a female who has no more interest than just money, travelling and dancing. If you want a he-man look in the right places, not in any beer parlor. DEAR ALONE: What makes you so suspicious? A woman can enjoy dancing and other recreation without being a no-good, can't she? I greatly doubt that most lonely women are merely looking for a good time. DEAR DORIS: I am a very emotional person. If I don't do something right, I get upset and start to cry. What causes this, and how do I cure it? L. DEARK.L.: Maturity and self- confidence are the answer. Gradually as we grow up we discover our own capacities and when we achieve one success it cheers us on. But if we have parents who praise more than they punish, the whole process involves fewer tears. Remember, you will change and improve all your life, as long as you keep trying. And how about using your sense of humor? Next time you make a mistake, (and we all make blunders) try laughing DEAR DORIS: With regard to the phone trouble, I had the same experience for four years. My party line used to keep dialing till she would cut my caller off. I went to the manager and he sent her a book, "How to share a party That did no good. She cut off our daughter one Sunday when she phoned from Boston and our daughter wrote the manager. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in April and at p.m. our friend from California phoned and she told him to get off the line. After this our children paid for a private phone. What a pleasure! I can use the phone any time and no one hollering at you. It's worth the extra money. Your only remedy is a private phone. J. B. DEAR MRS. J. B.: Glad there was a solution, in your case. Thank you for telling us about it. DEAR DORIS: I listened to a television program about handicaps and it was so interesting because I went through mental illness. But would you believe it, I still suffer insults. If I get upset about anything people say, "Oh, don't mind her, she's off her rocker. She had mental illness." girl on our street can jump into bed with anyone she feels like and all people say is: "That poor woman! She went through hell." Well, if she never went through hell before she might afterwaru, if there is a hell or heaven. So Doris, I guess the handicapped person or the one who has had a mental illness just doesn't stand much of a chance. In this sexy old world of ours, be sexy and wild and you are mentally well. (But very physically disturbed, I'd Girl DEAR ABNORMAL: There is a stigma still attached to anyone who has ever been in a mental hospital, and that's for sure! But we are wearing it down a little. People are coming to realize that mental illness is a disease, KISS PEELIN6 PAINT PROBLEMS GOODBYE with... ALUMINUM SIDING DUNCAN ALUMINUM CO.

It will probably take more than a mental institution to restore your over-sexed neighbor to anything like a normal moral balance. I am sorry for her and any person like her. DEAR DORIS: I am 25 years old, married with three children. I am 30 pounds underweight. Two different doctors tell me it is better to be underweight than overweight, but I am self- conscious about it. I have tried a number of products designed to gain weight but to no avail. Help? DEAR ANY: I'm sending you my 25- cent Chart For Curves. Products which claim to help you gain weight are not my dish of tea. They will not help you to develop the habits which make for better weight and better health all round. It is better to be underweight than over, but 30 pounds is too much. The Chart will give you some ideas for gradually increasing in weight, without getting too fat. Nutrition ought to be that means getting uncooked foods, minerals, vitamins, and learning to enjoy foods that are good for you, so that you establish permanent patterns. DEAR DORIS: I have an urge to share my secret. I became a widow six years ago after 28 years of marriage. Everyone thought I had a perfect marriage, but the truth is that after the first year I didn't love my husband. He was a good and kind man, and never once did I let him down. Now I feel cheated, and wonder if I can still hope to find a quiet sort of love. I am only 54; I love life and people. Do you think I am acting immature to dream of a new life? L.C. DEARL.C.: Immature? Definitely not. You have time for a lot of living yet, and there's no reason why you shouldn't enjoy it. Get out and meet people, join a club for single people, do volunteer work, take evening courses, be everywhere there are people of both sexes. Take a job, even a part- time one, where you'll meet the public. Your dream of a new love can become a reality. DEAR DORIS: I have been married for three years and for the last two of them my husband and I haven't been getting along. We have absolutely nothing in common, and he is several years older than me. I met a man a few months ago and I know I am in love with him, but I'm not sure if he loves me or if he is just getting a big kick out of the situation. My husband is not aware of what is happening and I have thought of leaving him several times. We have no children and no sex life for I can't stand the thought of my husband touching me. I would like to leave my husband but he would take it very badly. I was married young and I missed out on all the excitement of being a teen- ager. How will I know if this man I love is in love with me? Desperate. DEAR DESPERATE: There is too much left untold. You still sound very young, perhaps too immature to know the real thing. And if your husband would "take it very badly" why? Does he care for you? If he does, your touch- me-not attitude must be breaking his heart anyway. As for knowing if the new man loves or is just flirting with you I'm sending you my leaflet, What Is Love? See if he meets any of the specifications. Yours is a case for personal counselling.
