Dear Sparklers, After so many years of answering your letters, the time has finally come for me to write you one of my own. No, not to seek advice for some weird adult problem that's all about retirement accounts and back hair (or maybe both at ... More  →

Auntie SparkNotes: I'm In The Nosebleed Section of the Friend Zone

By kat_rosenfieldDecember 13, 2018
Hey Auntie, So this is a run-of-the-mill story, but it's pretty annoying as well. I'm a 17-year-old girl in my senior year of high school (also a 7th-year Ravenclaw at Hogwarts, but whatever.) So, there's this guy I'm into. He's kind, smart, hilarious, and really talented—he ... More  →

By kat_rosenfieldDecember 6, 2018
Dear Auntie, Last year, I had the biggest crush on this girl (let's call her Ella). Normally, I suppress my feelings towards girls because I know that my homophobic family won't be supportive, but she's also bi, and she started flirting back. So for nearly four ... More  →

Dear Auntie, I have recently found myself in a new and exciting relationship. My first actual relationship. The guy? Well, he's just amazing. Let's call him George. We met on Tinder (what a meet-cute, I know), but it feels like fate when you look at ... More  →

By kat_rosenfieldNovember 7, 2018
Dear Auntie, I feel very stuck right now. You see, my long-term boyfriend (we'll call him Dean) and I are in a long-distance relationship because we're going to different schools. I won't go into too much detail, but our conversations have become so predictable and boring. ... More  →

Dear Auntie, My anxiety has many triggers, several of which might be perceived as silly or inconsequential by those who haven’t experienced it. For example, being imitated—even if it’s just in a light-hearted game of charades—can send me into a full-blown panic attack. So can repetitive ... More  →
