Take It From Me

When

Modern love is a minefield, and trust us … the last thing you want to do is turn to Yahoo Answers for advice. When you have a romantic problem, it’s best to ventilate it, get it out in the open, let that conundrum breathe! With this in mind, we present Take it From Me, a forum for strangers to dissect your love life and dish out ill-informed and context-free advice. 

Anonymously submit your romantic quandaries and quagmires and our panellists will puzzle over your problem before setting you on the path to happily ever after. Secretly pining for your sexy but sociopathic ex-butcher? Hopelessly embroiled in a dead-end love affair with a dead ringer for Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys? Our advisers will bring their wealth of experience from mostly irrelevant fields, and nut out some solutions to your dilemma. 

Those who are smugly and insufferably coupled-up can  come along, too! What better date night activity than smirking into each other’s eyes while listening to the woes of the lovelorn?

Destiny knocks. Will you answer?
