Highlights from Thursday, Jan 17, 2013

Abigail Van Buren, the original "Dear Abbey," passed away yesterday. We thought together we could help fill the hole in the world of advice. Matt Fields, producer for the Morning Cruise, wrote us our first letter and you responded.

That sort of got us talking about "catfishing," the practice that's brought into the headlines thanks to the experience of the Notre Dame football player who was the victim of a hoax online "girlfriend." So we asked if you'd had any experience with online romance. Your responses hit about every possible result. Jackie met her husband online.

Renee had a friend who fell victim to a someone who wasn't exactly who they said they were.

And Allie was on her way to meet someone face-to-face for the first time who she'd met online.

The new season of American Idol premiered last night. That started us thinking about how to tell when it's time to quit already.
