Introducing: ‘Between You & Me’

Our new 'Between You & Me' write-in is a regular series dedicated to answering your personal problems in our best Oprah voice.

Like a modern-day Dear Deirdre column, only this time there are seven agony aunts putting in their two pennies worth.

When times are pretty sh*tty, we’ll wade in and give you our best pearls of wisdom, without the unsolicited advice – all in the hope that you’ll feel a little less alone in whatever you’re going through. Bottom line: Yes, you’re normal, no you’re not the only one, yes it’s ok to have problems and HELL YES it’s ok to ask for help.

Whether it’s friendship woes, marital struggles, grief, loneliness, body hang-ups, overbearing in-laws, problem-skin, stress or heartbreak, we all know a problem shared is a problem halved and we hope this space is somewhere you can show up, be open and honest and get the emotional back-up you need. Like a cracking pair of pants – we are here to hold you together, so lament and vent away!

If you’ve got a situation that prompts the question, ‘Am I the arsehole (AITA)?’ or ‘What would you do (WWYD)?’ we want to hear from you.

We can’t promise we’ll solve the issue but we’ll offer support in the best way we know how: by talking it out!

Remember to tell us if you wish to remain anonymous and change some names and places so no one figures you out.
