Hey there! You gave me some advice a few months ago, and it's really helped get my life on track. I'd seriously though about suicide as a way to end my problem, but thanks to you, I know there was a way out other than that. It's been a huge struggle, but it's all (hopefully!) going to be worth it in the end. You've helped me keep alive, and though you'll never know my name or who I am, I appreciate you so much it'd be hard for anyone to understand. Thank you for helping me keep breathing.

You’re welcoming, hun. I am glad my advice was of help to you and that you kept on trucking! I wish you the best of luck in living life!

(2/2) in the less than a year that I've worked there, and I'm afraid that would happen to him, especially because of the age gap. What do I do?

Tell em straight up to stop, you sound like a good person and I understand what it is to not want to hurt someone’s feelings. You need to tell him to stop, or threaten him with telling your boss. I know it might not feel right, but you need to know that even though it may be harmless, it’s making you uncomfortable and that is NOT okay. You have the right to say no and to be in a comfortable working environment. I suggest you warn him about how this bothers you, if he still insists, threaten him by saying you’ll tell the boss and if that doesn’t work, tell your boss, you at least gave him fair warning! Anyways I wish you the best of luck, sweetie!

Hi Iggy, id like to ask some advice. i have a very close friend who means a lot to me, who has basically dropped off the face of the earth. i haven't heard from her in 5 weeks. I've tried calling, texting, emailing, I'm even getting ready to mail her a letter. these are my only ways of contacting her, as she lives on the other side of the country than me. Im worried sick. i don't know if shes mad, missing her phone, if shes missing, if shes dead,or what. and I dont know what to do at thus point.

Look, things like this can happen. All I can say is be patient. I know it sounds impossible to do, especially because you are a good friend and worry, but that’s all you can do. If it makes you feel better, send her the letter, but nothing more. Wait a month or so, you don’t know what situation she is in, so don’t start speculating things, until you hear it from her, or it’s been waaaay too long. Trust me, I don’t hear from people in a really long time but it doesn’t mean they are gone off the face of the earth, sometimes they have a good reason why this happens. SO I suggest, sit tight and just wait, live your life like you normally will, and she will eventually resurface.  good luck!

I hope it's okay for me to ask for a bit of advice right quick. I am 18, just barely. Like only by a handful of weeks. I work with a guy, whose in his late 30's, and flirts with me all the time. I'm not interested and it's really awkward and I feel really uncomfortable. But, he's not a sleezebag about it, so I don't want to hurt his feelings, and I'm afraid to say anything to the management because we have really strict sexual harassment policies and 2 people have been fired because of them(1/2)

My friend's version of a "bonding" experience is going with her to buy some Plan B pills because she's not old enough to purchase them, go to the counter, point to me and say "she needs the plan B pill" so I can use my ID, making me look like a total derp.

Look, what you did was a good thing but the way she made you look wasn’t. You need to talk to her and tell her that she needs to learn how to take care of herself and be nicer to you when it comes to this kind of thing, I can imagine how uncomfortable it felt when you were cornered to purchase something that didn’t concern you. You can’t be always her knight in shinning armor when it comes to it, either she learns to 1.wrap it up, 2. take birth control, 3. not do it at all. It may be easy for her to point to you to solve this problem but it isn’t your responsibility. If anything she should be grateful for this favor you are doing for her, if not her ego could be preggo and I really hope she learns from that lesson. I really hope you talk to her about it and tell her the true meaning of ‘bonding’ cause that’s not it. I wish you luck you sweet angel!

(2/2) we can still be friends cause he's a really cool guy, and being afraid that I'll get too attached or it'll make it harder to move on and I'll get hurt. Tips? And thanks for listening. This is a really awesome thing you do.

Being friends with an ex is only good, if you are both in good terms. Meaning you both have to disregard your feelings for each other. It’s obvious that you still feel attached to me and I suggest you try to resolve any of the emotions you have for him, such as ‘I have feelings for you’, or ‘I’m afraid I’ll gain feelings for you’. It’s better when someone gives you boundaries. Being friends with someone your still into is hard but if you can be strong then hopefully with time those feelings will diminish, but heads up you might still be hurt about not being able to be with him, just reason with him and tell him this bothers you, as friends. Good luck babydoll!

(1/2) I got a boyfriend he was sweet, and he was a really great guy and treated me well and with respect. About 2 months later we broke up because he was living on campus and he didn't have his car so he couldn't come visit me, and he barely had time to talk to me. He said he didn't think it was fair to me and that I deserved someone who could give me proper attention. He still wants to be friends, and we've started talking a bit and he does little, nice things, and I'm torn between being happy

I have a crush on this girl from my group of friends but she's not into girls. I'd like to be closer friends with her though but I'm always acting awkward and nervous when she's around and I don't know what to do...

Awww you sound like any regular person who has a crush! It’s normal to be nervous around the person you like and if you guys do get close enough as friends, the whole being nervous around her thing, will die down eventually (or kept to minimum). I’m sorry to hear that she is not interested in girls, sometimes things like this happen! people you are interested in, will not feel the same due to sexual orientation and you need to respect that. I suggest you either admit to yourself that it may be nearly impossible to be with her because of her orientation and give up on perusing her, because it’s going to cause you heartache ):, or if you are not 100% certain she is heterosexual, bring in a conversation at some point with your friends about what would they think about dating another women. If her definite answer is ‘no’, there really isn’t anything you can do about, but being friends with her wouldn’t hurt. You’ll find someone you deserve babydoll, cause you’re worth it! I wish you the best of luck in finding a special lady!

I mean I've tried to stop speaking to her but I can't, sigh, she is/was my best friend but it's hurting me so much with the way she treats me and she doesn't seem to care at all, she just says that she enjoys being a bitch ):, I feel so clingy to her but I just don't know what to do, I feel all hurt inside by th thought of stopping speaking to her but I can't stand being treated like this, what do you think?

Anon you need to know that you are a good person and you should not be treated like this. She sounds like she’s trying to take advantage of you and pushing you aside and practically abusing you and she doesn’t care. If she doesn’t consider your feelings and doesn’t treat you with the same respect, honesty and dedication you have put into your friendship, she isn’t worth being your friend. I’ve been in a situation where I’ve been lied, betrayed, and still hang around with the person hoping they would change but that never happened and we we’re super close friends. So close we we’re going to go to college together. I couldn’t stand they way she acted, the way she treated people, and the way she treated me. So what did I do? I told her the truth I said I couldn’t take it anymore and told her that she ruined what she had with me and that in the future I hope that she doesn’t treat her friends like she treated me. Did it hurt? yeah it did, I cried like a bitch for nights, because I missed her as a friend. In the end though, it was worth it, no more worrying, no more feeling bad about yourself and finally going out of my way to find better people. My suggestion is ask her to consider your feelings and if she still doesn’t, cut her off. I know it’s going to be hard but it’s better than being treated like crap especially when you don’t deserve it. You sound like a wonderful person and I believe that wonderful people should be friends with other great peoples, not jerkwads. I wish you luck, you beautiful person!

Hello! I just have this problem, you see I have this friend but honestly, she treats me like shit, I mean she's always saying how I'll always be forever alone and is always boasting to me how she is class president and how she is fluent in 4 languages, and I mean, when ever I'm proud of something she always puts me down and goes on about how she could do it better, and she also lied to me about a break up she had and said she was so distraught about the break up, she only told me it was a lie(1)
