Question #175: Torn between my job and my life

Hi Captain Awkward I have a casual job, working at a holiday camp. This job is about 4 hours away from home, and involves going and staying on the property while I work. I spent a couple of years after I left school living and working out there full time, but now I’m based in […]

Question #174: Dating secrets of THE TERRIFYINGLY AMAZING

Dear Captain Awkward, I am a twenty-five-year-old introverted, socially-awkward, geeky fat girl who has never been kissed. I feel weird about this, because it feels like there is something terribly wrong with me, and all of my friends are way more experienced than I am. I don’t really know if I have the energy for […]

Question #173: How do I help my friends through breakups?

Dear Captain Awkward, I have never been in a relationship and yet somehow I often wind up being among the first people told about break-ups of others. Today a friend I haven’t known for long (couple of months but we hit it off right away) send me an email to apologise for not replying to […]

Question #172: How do I break up with the mean guy who scares me?

Edit/Update:  The LW contacted me to let me know that she left Jon the Asshole (Yay!) after he (predictably) physically assaulted her (Boo!). She’s doing ok and gives us all her love (which is returned. SO returned). I’m leaving this question up because she’s probably (sadly) not alone in having the question.   Hello Captain, […]

Question #170: Should I break up with my boyfriend?

Dear Captain, I am at a complete loss as to what to do here, and I would appreciate your advice. My boyfriend and I have been dating for 4 years. I was 20 when I first started dating him; he was 4 years older. He is my first ever boyfriend, and my first everything (except […]

Question #169: My dad hit me.

I really, really need commenters who have experience with domestic violence/abuse counseling to weigh in here, thanks. This Letter Writer needs help from someone who doesn’t have to Google “domestic violence resources” to answer the question. Captain Awkward, Hi! I’m a 19 year old college student and I live with my parents. It’s not an […]

Question #168: The Peaches/Fingers/Kitty/New Year’s/Gaming/Self-Harm Situation

Hi, Well, I’m just out of the worst part of a nasty emotional crash and into the ‘ok what the fuck do I do’ section of it. Also the ‘I need a nap’ section of it (stress makes me sleepy). On New Year’s Eve, I invited some friends over. These are my boyfriend (pseudonym: Kitty), […]

Question #167: My mom disowned me on Christmas day.

I played hooky with Commander Logic yesterday, so no posts, sorry! If you’ve been wondering “Is Hot Doug’s still delicious? Is the movie adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy  a) enjoyable b) a clinic in the importance of lens choice and detail in production design c) a fucking masterpiece of acting in Gary Oldman’s performance?
