Sink or Swim

Dear Frankly,

My sister says I need to put a time limit on waiting for my boyfriend to propose to me. She says I should not let him know about the time limit. We have been together for more than 5 years. I think our relationship is very strong. We live apart, but I spend a lot of time at his apartment and he at mine. I would like to marry him, though. We have talked a little about marriage, and he says he plans for us to marry. I am not sure how I would approach this time limit. Any suggestions?

Dear Bewildered,

Five years? Honey, if he hasn’t made the plunge by now, you better drain the pool. Sounds like you two have been splashing around in the kiddie pool wearing water wings. Tell him it’s time to sink or swim.

Dear Frankly,

I’m a 21-year-old college student who will be graduating in one year. I am white and I have a terrific boyfriend who would do anything for me. He is Hispanic. The problem is that my parents would disown me if they found out about him. We will be graduating college together this month and plan on moving East together. My parents have no idea I even have a boyfriend and my friends think I should tell them. I know that telling them it will completely destroy my relationship with my father and my mother will side with him. Do you think I should continue living a lie and just move west supposedly by myself and keep my family relationship intact?

Dear Lost,

Tell your xenophobic, bigoted parents the biggest, fattest lie.
