請幫我翻譯以及修正英文文章的意思。

DEAR ABBY: My fiancee, "Tara," has a problem with social boundaries. She was home-schooled most of her education and missed out on a social life.

我的未婚妻,Tara 本身有一個社交界線的問題,她所受的教育大部份都是在家自學以及錯過社交生活。

Recently, a male friend of mine quit talking to both of us because of her behavior. When I talked with him about it, he said Tara makes him uncomfortable. She doesn't understand where friendly joking stops and serious flirting starts. She gave him the impression she wanted to start an affair, so he walked away.

最近,我有一個男性朋友______因為她的行為,當我告訴他關於她的事情,他說Tara讓他感到不舒服已經是個常態了,他不知道友善地玩笑以及開始認真的調情的點在哪裡,她給他的印象是個想要開始外遇的女人,所以他躲遠遠的。

Tara has been open and upfront about everything. She doesn't lie. It's like she doesn't know any other way to interact with the opposite sex, and it's spooking me before our wedding. I don't want to have to be my fiancee's constant social monitor.

Tara對每件事情都很坦誠,他不說謊,____她不知道用哪種方式去跟異性互動,嚇到我了在我們結婚之前,我不想我的未婚妻被________。

What can I do to help her with this? Are there social classes for late bloomers? -- FREAKED-OUT FIANCE IN OHIO

我該做些什麼去幫助她呢? 是否有為大器晚成的人提供的社交課程呢?

DEAR FREAKED-OUT FIANCE: I don't blame you for being "freaked out" because Tara's behavior must have been blatant for your friend to avoid both of you. My advice is to put your wedding on hold until you, a female relative (or two) whom Tara respects and will listen to, or a counselor is able to make her understand the boundaries of socially appropriate behavior. If you proceed as things are, the next letter I receive from you may be from "Freaked-Out Husband."

我不怪你被嚇壞了,因為Tara過去的行為一定很露骨因此你的朋友遠離妳們兩個。我的建議是暫緩妳們的婚禮,直到,女方的父母或雙方對Tara尊重和聆聽,或是輔導員能夠讓他明白這社會適當的界線在哪,如果你要繼續進行結婚的話,下一次我從你那收到信的標題可能就是”被嚇壞的老公”。

    DEAR ABBY: My fiancee, "Tara," has a problem with social boundaries. She was home-schooled most of her education and missed out on a social life.

    我的未婚妻,Tara 有社交(邊際)上的問題,因為她大都是在家自學所以錯過了社交生活。

    Recently, a male friend of mine quit talking to both of us because of her behavior. When I talked with him about it, he said Tara makes him uncomfortable. She doesn't understand where friendly joking stops and serious flirting starts. She gave him the impression she wanted to start an affair, so he walked away.

    最近,因為她的行為,我的男性友人不再和我們交談,當我告訴他關於她的狀況,他說Tara讓他感到不舒服。她分不清什麼是開玩笑或是調情,她給他的印象是她想要搞外遇,所以他趕快走開。

    Tara has been open and upfront about everything. She doesn't lie. It's like she doesn't know any other way to interact with the opposite sex, and it's spooking me before our wedding. I don't want to have to be my fiancee's constant social monitor.

    Tara一直都很開放和對每件事情都很直率,她不說謊。就像她不知道用哪種方式去跟異性互動。在我們結婚之前,這樣讓我很害怕。我不想我的未婚妻一直被社會的規範所檢測。

    我該做些什麼去幫助她呢? 是否有社會課程可以提供給那些像她一樣在這些方面能力較欠缺的人呢?

    DEAR FREAKED-OUT FIANCE: I don't blame you for being "freaked out" because Tara's behavior must have been blatant for your friend to avoid both of you. My advice is to put your wedding on hold until you, a female relative (or two) whom Tara respects and will listen to, or a counselor is able to make her understand the boundaries of socially appropriate behavior. If you proceed as things are, the next letter I receive from you may be from "Freaked-Out Husband."

    我不怪你被嚇壞了,因為Tara對你朋友大膽的行為,以至於你的朋友不再和你們交往。我的建議是暫緩妳們的婚禮,直到,你和女方的父母都可以彼此傾聽問題所在或者請顧問讓她能明白這社會適當的界線在哪。當然如果你執意要進行結婚的話,下一次我從你那收到信的標題可能就是”被嚇壞的老公”。

    quit talk

    quit +ving :.. 停止做.

    ~quit talking: 停止說話

    friendly joking stops 為什麼會有stops

    serious flirting starts 為什麼會有starts

    She doesn't understand where friendly joking stops and serious flirting starts.

    字面上是說她不懂說到什麼地方友善的玩笑該停止而認真的調情已經開始了

    (即她不會拿捏兩者間的不同,所以會讓人誤會)

    2013-03-14 13:36:55 補充:

    where friednly jokiing stops 名詞子句當主詞+單數動詞

    serious flirting starts名詞子句當主詞+單數動詞

    (因為字數限制,無法放在一起,在此補充,請諒解)
