DEAR ABBY: I have a gay friend I’ll call “Allen.” We have been close friends for 13 years.
Allen has visited me often with his friends from England, and two years ago, when I could finally afford to visit him, he invited me to stay in the home he shares with his boyfriend, “Rupert.”
Rupert took an instant dislike to me. He treated me rudely and mocked my American accent the entire time I was there.
I let it be and concentrated on the beautiful scenery, the beautiful people I met and my longtime friend.
