FILE THIS under: Men are from bars, women are from Kleenex. In the interest of science, we present this special bilingual editorial to explore the findings of a new major study that suggests how men and women think differently. (Male version) A new study has found a clue to why women are constantly whining and crying. It seems they are programmed to feel and remember emotions more intensely than men. Some guys from the State University of New York and Stanford hooked up the brains of test subjects and found that women's neural responses to emotional scenes were much more active than the men's.

Angel has a beautiful smile and infectious laugh. He loves being around people. The 10-year-old is happiest when he is spoken and sung to. He loves having his face painted. Other favorite activities include art, music, being outdoors, and watching movies. Because of medical issues, he is dependent upon others for his care and uses a wheelchair. Although he is nonverbal, he clearly communicates his feelings. When he is happy his face glows with a dazzling smile and he purses his lips to blow a kiss.

Faking your feelings at work, especially if your boss pressures you to do it, is an important factor in burnout, according to new research from the University of Pennsylvania. Call-center employees were more likely to feel "emotionally exhausted" - a major component of burnout - if their supervisors stressed strict rules of telephone behavior, such as expecting workers to be nice no matter how rude the caller. While good phone manners are clearly important, companies can pay a high price for requiring perfection.

DEAR ABBY : I'm a freshman in college and have the sweetest boyfriend in the world. We've always been close and trusted each other. I always thought it was innocent and safe. Last weekend, though, things got a little heavy between us. We stopped before anything happened, but I felt dirty afterward. As I thought about it, I realized that, to me, it had seemed OK that our relationship was starting to take a more intimate turn. Is it wrong for me to think this way? I don't know how to bring up the "sex talk" with him without seeming desperate or like I'm rushing things.

Question: Two years ago, I got pregnant by my mostly platonic friend, T. After agonizing, I decided to keep the baby, whom I fully expected to raise by myself. To my surprise, T has been incredibly involved in caring for the kiddo, whom he loves dearly. Till now we have really made it work, and have never had a problem with boundaries. T and I are not romantic and probably never will be. In mid-2010, I started dating M. We are now exclusive and serious. Unlike most guys I've met, he did not take off running just because I have a toddler, and he is loving and supportive in every way. The problem is that T cannot stand M. His reasons are unspecific and unfair, but his feelings are very strong.

July 18, 2012 | Question: My relationship with a close family member has taken a turn for the worse. She suffered a tragic loss almost a year ag
The problem is that I feel that in her anger/grief at her situation, she is taking her feelings out on me — she's blamed me for being unsupportive and uncaring (I strongly feel that this is not true). I'm also not the first person she's written off for these reasons. She's so upset with me that she's now declined to be my maid of honor, less than three months before my wedding. Our family is devastated that "we can't get along. " I understand she has been through a lot, but I'm also hurt deeply by her treatment.

DEAR ABBY: I just found out that my girlfriend of nearly four years had an abortion when she was in high school. I overheard her during a conversation she was having with someone. I later asked her what was implied when the name of her ex-boyfriend from high school was brought up. She proceeded to tell me what had happened and then said, "I never told you that?" My reaction is feelings of disgust, betrayal and of having been lied to. Am I overreacting or are my feelings warranted?

Roma Mazza barely let herself cry when her daughter died. Tiny Jeanna Ann was buried on her third birthday. In those days, Mazza was too angry even to pray. But years later, she found a voice she didn't know she had. Or even needed. It came unexpectedly, and in what some might consider an unlikely setting - a poetry-writing workshop at a church day program for the homeless, the ill, the sick-at-heart, and anyone else who needs or wants a place to be with others. Under the title, "Shining Star," Mazza wrote: When I look up in the night And see a shining star I smile, for this tells me You are not too far. In a way, Fred Roberts wasn't surprised at all. "Every person has some poetry within," he said.

Question: I'm a single guy who has harbored feelings for one of my best friends for a number of years.

She has begun seeing someone. How can I take a break from our friendship without ruining it? ?Answer:Best to lie low for a bit without explaining, since you want to maintain the friendship but you also don't care to play audience to her romance.

Dealing with the death of a loved one is hard at any age, but it is especially troubling for young children. Helping youngsters understand their grief is one of the lessons in the new play Wooden Heart. Produced by Stages of Imagination, a local theater company, it is the story of a boy named Tommy and how he feels after the death of his dog Marbles. "We started our company three years ago because we wanted to bring theater to children," said Vicki Giunta, producer and director of the show.

For months, the news about job growth has been good, at least nationally. But, until recently, it seemed as though the American people hadn't yet received the memo. Now, finally, there's a shift, with optimism on the rise, a Rutgers University study shows. Annette Reeves, 58, is feeling the mood. After many years of unemployment or underemployment, she started a full-time job in July. "I feel extremely confident," Reeves said. Like others caught in the recession, Reeves had lost her job, her house, and - almost - her spirit, a common effect of joblessness.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a young woman of 16 years, and I'm in the second year of high school. Next year will be my last, and then I will have the pressure of what I will do with my life. When I was little, I said I was going to be a stylist. I liked that idea, but after I did some research about it, I realized it is not for me. I have also thought about journalism and specializing in fashion, but don't know if it's something I want for my life. I would love to do medicine, perhaps pediatrics or oncology.

DEAR ABBY: I have a complicated family situation. My dad was married to a woman named "Cynthia" for 16 years until they divorced. He met and married my mother the next year. My parents were married for 40 years, until Mom died of cancer a year ago. Since her death, I have gone with my dad to a few holiday events hosted at his other daughters' houses, where we saw them and Cynthia. Everyone was cordial and welcoming. A few days ago, Dad told me that he and Cynthia are dating, and he asked me to wish them luck.

Q: I have an issue that cost me my relationship. My girlfriend (now my ex) has a tattoo on her arm that says "Big John" with a heart drawn next to the letters. I was very upset and offended when I was out with her and it was visible. I was seeing her for approximately four years and everyday when I see her, I had to look at that stupid tattoo. We had many arguments and disagreements about this. She felt, if I was tired of looking at it, I should pay to have it removed or covered. I was really tired of looking at it. My suggestion to her was to at least wear a long-sleeved shirt to cover it. I am curious as to what you both think.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband and I have been together for more than a decade and have two sweet, young children. After months of a nagging feeling and begging my husband to tell me the truth, he finally admitted this weekend that he has visited prostitutes and massage parlors for years. The last year has been a sad, miserable time. He was emotionally retreating out of shame and guilt. The quiet tension has taken a toll on us and our children. He can get therapy to heal his addiction, but it won't be with me by his side as his wife.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband of 10 years recently came out to me as a transwoman. She says she is a lesbian and wants to stay and make it work. I am trying to be supportive, but I am feeling betrayed and weirded-out and pretty sure I'm not a lesbian. When I hide my confusion, she's ecstatically happy to be her real self; when I mention some aspect of my unhappiness, she goes very quiet. I feel sad and alone and confused, and I don't know how much of that to let show.

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a 13-year-old son, my only child. For the last 10 years, I have been living with mounting guilt over the fact that he doesn't have a sibling. It's not because my husband and I haven't tried, we have. But fertility issues took us down an empty road, and adoption discussions were just that - discussions. I can't tell you how many times our son has said he wished he had a sibling. Every time, it's like a knife in my heart, and the guilt surges back. I think about the future and how he will have no brother or sister to share life with or lean on when something happens to my husband or me. Although I have always felt blessed to have him, I can't escape these feelings.
