DEAR NOT THAT EXCITED: Your letter is a lesson about the danger of "faking it." Level with your girlfriend, but without using the words "terrible" and "turnoff." Tell her you love her, but while many men find large breasts to be a turn-on, you actually prefer smaller ones, and it sometimes affects your sexual performance. Explain that if she thinks her breasts are what have kept you interested, it's not the case. At some point, one or more of her implants may need to be replaced, and she might opt for smaller ones.
DEAR ABBY: I moved to Australia 10 years ago, but I feel drawn home. Complicating things is the fact that I have a same-sex Australian partner. Because gay marriage is not federally recognized in the United States, he has no possibility of legally immigrating there.
I come from a large, close family and my parents are entering their 70s. I miss my family and my culture every day.
The thought of not being around my family in the long term is unbearable. The thought of leaving my partner is equally painful. Help!

DEAR TRANS-PACIFIC: I don't know your financial situation, but why must this be an "either/or" situation? Your dilemma might be solved by visiting your parents more often. If their health changes, you could return to the U.S. for a more extended period. Until the laws in the U.S. regarding same-sex marriage change, that's what you will have to do unless you're willing to sacrifice your relationship.
