Ask Us Anything

We've been light on advice in this corner for a while now, we know. (In Edith's immortal words: "There is no such thing as advice. There are only problems and the ways people handle them.") But we've been deliberating and you've been requesting and what the hell, let's give it a go! We've got a brand-new email for advice questions (askhairpin@gmail.com), so please send us any dilemmas you've got on your mind, for a Dude or a Lady or Whoever, and we'll do our best to nourish them with lots of food/water/sunlight/words. (Or to kill them? Either way.)

Why now? I do not understand.

Emma Carmichael

@honey cowl Partly because we want to try it out, partly because we have interested parties who we think will be great, partly because our horoscopes told us to.


@honey cowl Because asking at any time other than now requires a time machine.

@Onymous We actually have one of those so that wasn't really the issue.

@Danzig! oh baby, don't hurt me.


@shalalas I logged in to say exactly that. And then I was humming it to myself. Pavlov would be proud.

ETA: Whoops! I liked my own quote and now I cannot unlike it. It's only Wednesday, ugggghhhh. Where is my mind?

ETA: Quote? Comment. I need a nap.

@j-i-a that bear is totally planted, the scales have fallen from my eyes


@leonstj my racist southern Grandpa owned a copy of that Haddaway album, it was his compromise - black music without aggression. I loved it enough to take it but my mom made me mail it back even though he said I could have it. I then suffered several more years of prog house deprivation. Except when the SNL skit aired, of course.


Aw can I be an advice giver? I'm good with money! And career stuff! Also I am pushy!

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

How can I become wise enough to someday be somebody's Ask A person?


I am obsessed with advice columns - this is exactly what I need on the Hairpin. Yessssssssssssss.


@idrathernot I also love advice columns! I'm devoted to Polly, Prudie and Sugar. Who else am I missing?

i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, he told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditional spell hospital casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditional spell hospital for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
