DEAR ABBY: I am a 65-year-old widow and recently started dating a 66-year-old man. I really like him and enjoy his company. However, one thing about him drives me up a wall. He has long fingernails on both hands. He is neat and tidy and otherwise well groomed. I am quite sure he is not a coke user (which some have suggested could be the reason).

He has told me his hobby is guitar playing, but for that I'd think he would only need a few long nails. I feel I don't know him well enough to ask why he keeps them so long or tell him how much this creeps me out. How would you suggest I bring this up to him? -- DIANNE IN WISCONSIN

DEAR DIANNE: The gentleman's hobby may be guitar playing, but in order for him to form the chords he strums, his nails on one hand would have to be short. I can't think of a nice way to tell someone his nails "creep you out." However, I don't think it would be out of line to ask why he wears his nails as long as he does, and let him explain it to you.

亲爱的艾比:我是一个65岁的寡妇,最近开始和一个66岁的男人约会。我真的很喜欢他,喜欢他的陪伴。然而,他有一件事使我很纠结。他手上有长长的指甲。他很干净,整洁,其他方面也总是修饰得当。我很肯定他不是吸毒者(有些人认为这可能是原因)。

他告诉我他的爱好是吉他演奏,但我认为他只需要几根长指甲。我觉得我和他还不够熟,不然就问他为什么保持它们这么久,或者告诉他,这多少让我觉得毛骨悚然。你会建议我把这些告诉他吗?威斯康星——黛安娜


亲爱的黛安娜:绅士的爱好可能会是弹吉他,但为了他能形成和弦,他的一只手的指甲必须是短的。我想不出一个很好的方法来告诉别人他的指甲“使你抓狂“,但是,我不认为问他为什么戴着他的指甲是不行的,只要他这样做了,让他解释给你听。
