#282: Making plans with flaky sister isn’t working.

I’m having some trouble with my sister that I don’t know how to deal with. Basically, she’s a huge flake. Often when we make plans to spend time together, she’ll change her plans and not tell me until the last minute (when or after we were supposed to meet) and sometimes not at all. She […]

#281: Oh goody. More stalking.

Hello, friends. Here is a photo of a calming manatee and a wee child. Here are baby bunnies sleeping. Here is a female film director holding her Oscars. This is Bates from Downton Abbey wearing a flannel shirt and holding a baby. This is two female Navy officers kissing and telling. This and this are network […]

#280: “How do I get rid of my Facebook stalker without being mean about it?”

Aw fuck, people. More stalking. Emergency kittens standing by thanks to Twitter friend and hilarious DVD-reviewer @jearl8000. Dear Captain Awkward, For a few months now, I have what would be defined as a “Facebook stalker” – he likes all of my pictures, all of my statuses, all of my photos, all of my comments on […]

#279: “Help, I’m in love with my best friend and I don’t know what to do.”

Dear Captain Awkward, I’m in love with my best friend. That sounds like a really lackluster problem, but it’s really starting to weigh on me in a way it never has before. I’ve tried to talk to some other friends about it, but they don’t really seem to count as outside opinions (our friends are […]

#276 & #277 & #278: A three-for-one stalker (un)special.

Here be a bunch of letters about dudes who can’t let go and the very young women who pity/get stalked by them. Have a website full of cute animal pictures open in another tab while you read this. You’re going to need it.

#275: “How do I keep a friendly (or more) connection with the guy who just broke up with me (twice)?”

Dear Captain Awkward, About six weeks ago, the guy I was dating (let’s call him StarTrekFan, our mutual love for Star Trek and other geekery brought us together), broke things off very suddenly. I asked him to give us another chance and he agreed. We had talked about what issues had arisen and wanted to […]

#274: How do I ask for more support from my emotionally distant girlfriend?

Dear Captain Awkward, My girlfriend and I are both in our early 20′s and have been going out long-distance for several months. Neither of us are very experienced at dating and this is the longest relationship either of us have been in. It’s also the first serious relationship she’s been in with a woman. We […]

Live from the search terms!

Creepily, I can see what Google searches bring people to this blog. Sometimes it’s fun to try to help these searchers out. “I think I’m very unattracted to my boyfriend, is that a good reason to break up?”  Yes. One of the best, in fact. “Do I text the girl that blew me?” Depends. Do […]

#273: “My kid won’t be visiting you”: Steps on becoming an Emotional Badass

Hello Captain! I am in serious need of some guidance. I’ll do my best to keep the background info to being pertinent to the situation. Here it goes. I have a wonderful four year old son with my terrible, emotionally-abusive ex. I left him when my son was a little over a year old and […]
