Bloomers Boo-Boo

Dear Dolly,

Recently I had a charming young man over to tea. Things were going swimmingly, until suddenly I noticed that my bloomers were peeking out. I’m sure he noticed. How ever can I ad-dress this?

Sincerely, Dressing Distressed in Dubuque

Dear Distressed,

I have known quite a few ladies that have had this experience. Don't worry you will not be ruined!  If he is a gentleman he will say nothing,  and if he does he is no gentleman and send him on his way.  Either way it is a good way to find out about his character.

Scared of Suffragettes!

Dear Dolly,

My daughters have been talking about this women’s vote nonsense lately. How do I set them straight and away from the paths of those crazy suffragettes? Heaven knows, they’ll never catch a husband that way!

Sincerely, Worried in Wilmington

Dear Worried,

Worry less!  Men that support women's rights are men that will be good to your daughters.   If you want your daughters to be happy, embrace the women's movement!  We owe it to future generations!

Just about Jilted?

Dear Dolly,

Recently, a certain well-to-do and strikingly eligible bachelor has been dragging his feet when it comes to marriage. I was certain that he would propose any moment and whisk me away from the drudgery of millinery, but alas, no proposal has been forthcoming.

Sincerely, Carat-less in the City.

 Dear Carat-less,

I fear your bachelor may have his eye on another woman.  My advice is to go out with someone else to make him jealous.   Head Clerks make excellent dinner companions.

Doing it like Dolly!

Dear Dolly,

No one lives life quite as vibrantly as you do! Do you have any tips for living life to the fullest?

Sincerely, Washed out in Wabasha

Dear Washed Out,

Thank you!  You are so sweet.  Well I get plenty of beauty sleep,  laugh out loud everyday,  and I eat until I am full...I find hungry women oddly mean.

Sick of Singledom

Dear Dolly,

I’m a single gal looking for the right man. I’m 18 and ready to settle down. The problem is, I can’t afford to be too choosy, I mean, I’m practically an old maid already! Where’s the best place for a good girl to meet a well-to-do gentleman these days?

Sincerely, Seeking in St Paul

Dear Seeking,

Go to church!  Men that want to settle down go to church.  Ask your pastor if anyone in the congregation is looking to settle down or volunteer at a neighboring church to meet new people.  You never know what you may find.

Bullied by a Boss

Dear Dolly,

I’ve been working for a wealthy business entrepreneur (no names, but his handkerchiefs are monogrammed with the initials H.V.) I was recently promoted to chief clerk, but was neglected the accompanying increase in salary. How does a young man get up the gumption to ask his curmudgeonly employer for a raise?

Sincerely, Yellow-bellied in Yonkers

Dear Yonkers,

I cannot call you yellow-bellied because I am sure you are not!  These things have a way of working themselves out.  You may have a guardian angel on your side.  Give this a week and see what happens.
