Dear Ann Landers,
This letter is no gag. I look like Paul Newman, and it is ruining my life. I'm thirty years old, happily married, and the father of three children. I'm a steady churchソスgoer. The girl who runs the elevator in this building takes me down to the basement, pushes the stop button, and tries to get friendly. The baby-sitter keeps asking me to kiss her good night when I drive her home because I am so "mature" and she is sick of high-school boys. When I stop at a lunch counter, women come over and ask for my autograph. I tell them they are mistaken, but they sit down and want to get acquainted. Yesterday my wife saw me having a cup of coffee with a beautiful young girl from the office who has been making a pest of herself lately. I may be in a little trouble at home. Please give me some help.--Case of Mistaken Identity

Dear Case,
Why don't you arm yourself with a whip and a chair--or wear goggles and a fright wig? A thirty-year-old man who doesn't want to get mixed up with dames knows how to steer clear without any help from me, so put that show on the road, Dad.

My husband looks just like George Clooney and it is a hoot!! Only diffference is that my husband is taller at 6'2". Just let it be known that while you find it flattering you are happily married.

To "Kurtiis: Tae your stupid comment to your Facebook page where we don't have to see it in Ann Landers advice column. Your "Dr. Odunga" is as false as you are and I hope your marriage falls apart again. Idiots! You will believe anything...

Why is he having coffee with a beautiful young girl who has "been making a pest of herself?" I am wondering if this guy is in denial about the fact that he is enjoying this attention. As Ann said, he knows how to put an end to this problem. Maybe he really doesn't want the attention to end.

Oh, poor baby being so attractive. Don't worry, you'll grow out of it. In the meantime, avoid all women at all times.

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:

Dear Readers,
, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?

"At every party there are two kinds of people - those who want to go home and those who don't. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other."
