Question: My brother dated X in college, and they moved in together afterward. For five years, she joined us for family dinners, vacations, etc. We really loved her. Then my brother decided she wasn't the one, broke up, started seeing Y, and now, a year later, they are engaged. Y is lovely and has asked me to be a bridesmaid. I know this is my brother's decision. I wish them happiness - but I can't really be joyful around them when I feel so bad for X. Is it OK to decline being in the wedding party?

Raised in an affluent, loving family on the Main Line, Matt Miller was a straight-A student with a sculpted body that even a Greek god might envy. He had a devoted girlfriend and the brightest future - shooting for medical school. Matt was not without his vanities.

" At college last fall, the 20-year-old pursued a new love - triathlons.

Everyone's done it. Yes, what you're thinking, too. But every regular theatergoer has seen (or will see) I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change . Lyricist Joe DiPietro and musician Jimmy Roberts' 1996 battle-of-the-sexes musical comedy ran Off-Broadway for more than a decade and has been staged across the country. Few companies I've seen have staged it with the same charm and comic aplomb as the production now running at the Walnut Street Theatre's Independence Studio on 3. DiPietro's book pokes evenhanded, light fun at the courtship habits of two couples: Man 1 (Christopher Sutton)

Dr. Dre got sent to jail for eight months in L.A. for violating probation after pleading no contest Tuesday to drunken-driving charges. The rapper, also fined $1,053 and ordered into an alcohol education program, was put on probation last year after being convicted of breaking a man's jaw outside his girlfriend's house. He got 90 days jail time in that case and paid the victim restitution. Dre - real name Andre Young - was last arrested Jan. 10 after leading cops on a 90 m.p.h.

The publication of photographs showing Princess Diana in embraces with a 42-year-old film producer appeared to confirm speculation that she has found a new love. The fuzzy long-distance photographs of Diana with Dodi Fayed, son of multimillionaire Harrods boss Mohammed al-Fayed, filled eight pages of London's Sunday Mirror newspaper. The pictures showed the couple, clad in bathing suits, kissing and embracing and sunbathing together aboard the elder Fayed's yacht in the Mediterranean last week.

Q. My boyfriend and I have been dating exclusively for 10 months. When we started, he made it very clear that he would not introduce me to his children because you indicated on your radio show that the children should not meet the dating partners. He has stuck firmly to this belief. He has broken dates or changed plans many times because the children want to come over or their mother wants to drop them off. I am hurt, but have learned to accept the situation because I love him. The children are 11 and 13. When is the proper time to discuss the possibility of meeting his children as his girlfriend?

We are a culture of lily-gilders. We try to improve on the classics by studding bagels with chocolate chips, by combining peanut butter and jelly in the same jar, by messing with the love story fundamentals. On the basis of three recent so-called romances, the newest twist on one time-honored recipe is: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets revenge. Girl gets revenge, too. In these movies, boy and girl get revenge together. And judging from these flavors-of-the-month, revenge is sweet 'n' sour.

Last winter, it seemed that no one cared much about Gizmo, a 10-year-old cat who was found, emaciated and freezing, by Philadelphia's Animal Care and Control Team. But, last week - after nearly a year of attention, care, and treatment with hyperthyroid medication by a Wayne cat rescue called the Grannie Project - it was a different story. Thousands of people voted for Gizmo in Tournament of Tails, a March Madness-style competition for shelter animals, with a $5,000 prize at stake.

CAIRO - Nearly three years ago, in the heyday of the Arab Spring, Tahrir Square was adorned with banners of youths killed by security forces. Hawkers sold T-shirts imprinted with their faces. Those banners are long gone, and this year vendors are selling T-shirts emblazoned with the face of Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the army leader who oversaw the July ouster of Egypt's first elected president, the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi. Sisi's mien is on posters and fancy chocolates, and - in a Photoshopped pic on the Internet - has even been strategically imprinted on a pair of men's briefs.

Question: I just finished high school and am going off to college this fall, and my father just retired from a long career in the Marines. I recently got a boyfriend, and we have become very serious (marriage has come up). He and his mother had a falling-out, and his father was abusive and is out of the picture. He has been staying with his sister, but they are now not getting along. I am working on it but not getting very far. My parents also don't completely approve of him. He always has me pick him up at a general location, and my parents find it "extremely bothersome" that he doesn't have us pick him up at his house.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Four months ago, my mother died unexpectedly and suddenly at 53. She had been ill (with my dad as caretaker) but was expected to make a full recovery. Two months later, my dad was going out on "dates" with a few women - bike rides and coffee. He acknowledged it was too early but was asked and wanted to get out of the house. I was supportive. Now he has started to call a couple by their first names, and the dates are less casual.

HOLLYWOOD'S MOST popular delusion is the story of romantic destiny, the couple buffeted by fate until they meet on top of the Empire State building, or whatever. The implication: happily ever after, true and perfect love. Have you noticed you never actually see these people living together? You never see, for instance, Meg Ryan, a few years down the road, telling Tom Hanks that he's once again left his socks in the middle of the den, then screaming at him because he's watching the Seahawks game and hasn't actually heard a thing that she's said, which leads to him spending the night on the pull-out couch - sleepless, indeed.

SUNDAY IS New Year's Day, so we asked advice columnists Steve and Mia to offer resolutions to improve readers' romantic prospects in 2012. Steve: Avoid romance with anyone who has more problems than you do. Mia: Date outside your comfort zone. If you're doing the same thing with the same kind of people and it's not working, try a different social or ethnic circle. Steve: Never date a co-worker. If things go bad - and they usually do - you mess up your social life and your work life, too. Mia: Get online!
