Ok, but what is an agony aunt?
An agony aunt is mainly a UK term... It is someone who will help you out
with life's agonies! You ask a question, they give advice.
What are the benefits?

and one point of view. You get a wide range of answers from people with
different life experiences and different point of views. We think this is much
Can anyone answer questions?
Yes, absolutely anyone can answer questions. All we ask is that people stick to our common-sense posting guidelines. You can answer anonymously, or
you can create an account and get your own agony aunt column! Even if you have registered
you can still choose to post some answers anonymously. You are in control.
Why is my question / answer not posted yet?
To keep quality on the site high, all questions and answers go through an approval
process. We reject only a small percentage of questions and answers: Usually only because
they are so badly written we have no idea what's going on! It normally takes no more than an
hour for new postings to get approved. If you create an account when you ask a question
you can see the approval status of your questions.
Can I advertise on your site?
Yes! We run all our adverts through Google's Adsense programme, and you can target this
site directly through Adsense.

and the answers you received may be really helpful to someone else so it would be appreciated if you leave your questions in place :)
