Save me from the saints!

Praying Hands Tattoo 3Dear Carolyn,

My girlfriend has a heart of gold and everyone calls her a saint. She’s always helping out at church, community and with her family. The problem is that I’m usually the last one in line for her time and attention. We’ve been dating for three years and when I try to pin her down about marriage she either ignores me or changes the subject.

I’m not sure where I rank with this saint. I’m praying you have the answer.


Dear Pete,

She may have a heart of gold but so does a hard boiled egg. I’m no expert on saints (my specialty is helping sinners)but I think you may want to consider moving on. You’ve tried to get her to commit and she ignores you. That’s not changing the subject, that’s answering the question.

I’m just say’n,
