Welcome to AbileneLoving.com! AbileneLoving.com is the online home for the Loving House series. Abilene Loving (the main character of the Loving House series) also maintains a real world advice column on this very site.
The Loving House series follows and intentional community in Argus, Arizona. An intentional community is a group of persons usually dedicated to certain basic values. In the case of Loving House, the basic value is community itself, that is, not living alone after time and taxes have done their deed. People rent a room at the house if there is an opening, if they want to share a common living space, if they agree to live in comfort with people of different opinions, religions, races, maladies, pets. Just as related family members diverge over time, Loving House residents differ in myriad ways. But they all share the need to be social and cared about, yet preserve the need for their own space. There are 5 residents, including Abilene Loving. Their stories are in the book, below left, by Jay Halsted Dyer. Abilene, the main character, is an advice columnist. Her columns are below right. Feel free to ask her questions by clicking on ASK, above right.

My niece was just married and during the announcement of the parents of the bride, the mother and father were announced although they are divorced and have remarried. Was this proper? The stepmother was upset, but I did not see any problem with this, as it was the bride's wish.
After years of walking concrete floors, massage therapy has evolved as a life saver for my aging back. My licensed and professional therapist has been working my back about every six weeks. The hot stones, reflexology and stretching have done wonders for me. Recently, she suggested a four-hand massage. She implied it would be rehabilitating, relaxing, and "lots of fun."
My problem: I have a fear of getting aroused by two female therapists massaging me at the same time, and I do not know how to express this concern to my therapist. How do I address this? At my next appointment when she brings up the idea, should I ask her if my fear is normal? Should I say nothing and hope everything is normal? I really do not want to embarrass myself or my therapist. Have you ever had a problem like this come to your desk?
My boyfriend and I have been together on and off for 5 years. We just recently broke up, and he found another woman. I'm 58, he's 64 and the other woman is 43. He has a very high sex drive. He met this woman after we broke up before. We got back together and I moved in with him. Well, he was still seeing this woman -- just for coffee he says. Now I have moved out, but he calls me all the time, tells me he loves me and always will. He also says that he is confused right now and wants me to give him time, Do you think I should or just move on?All Questions
