DEAR ABBY: I have never seen this mentioned in your column, but I'll bet it's an issue for others as it is for me.
I have been with my life partner for more than 15 years. When we kiss, he does not close his eyes. I have mentioned this to him several times. I told him that I feel he is cold, distant and lacking in passion when he kisses me with his eyes open. I told him it was like kissing my grandmother. While he periodically tries to close his eyes, he always seems to revert to kissing with his eyes open. He says he's more comfortable that way.
Have you or your readers run across this problem, and if so, how was it resolved? -- KISSLESS IN MINNEAPOLIS
DEAR KISSLESS: When you kiss, close YOUR eyes, then you'll spare yourself the upsetting knowledge that the person kissing you has his eyes open!
