Dear Aunty Mamie

Dear Aunty Mamie,
It has been about two years since my step-father tried to set my mom on fire, leaving her with burn scars on her face. Every week my little brother and I anonymously write a letter to her saying how we think she's the most beautiful woman in the world, and we put it in the mailbox and every time she receives our mail she cries. We don't want to see her cry but we also want to express our love to her. What do we do?
-Billy PA

Dear Billy,
She is not crying. She is actually excited because someone loves her even with her scars. She looks out for those letters so please don't stop writing her. You also can tell her to her face, dear kids.

Dear Aunty Mamie,
My best friend's new girlfriend whom he's had a crush on for a long time, finally admitted that she hates me. I still want to be friends with him but I don't want to be an obstacle between them. -Sam MD

Dear Sam,
The fact that she has openly admitted that she hates you is enough for you to stay away from them. The friendship can be a distant friendship but in order to make your friend happy just keep a distance.

Dear Aunty Mamie,

My ex-husband asked me to re-marry him, after being divorced for over 10 years. I am still in love with him but our children are against the idea of remarriage. We were married when I was 19, divorced five years later on and then after 10 years our hearts are back together again.

Dear Felicia,
Follow your heart. If your heart leads you to remarry your ex-husband then follow it. Your children are only angry with their daddy for leaving you in the first place but they will understand what true love means if you both show it.

Dear Aunty Mamie,
Today, I was feeling very down while heading out to a family dinner because my boyfriend had just dumped me. However, I didn't want my family to know yet because they are all wishing that I spent the rest of my live with this guy. How do I tell them that we have broken up.
- Merlyn FL

Dear Merlyn,
You have to tell your family the truth before they hear it from someone else. Let them know that your boyfriend has dumped you and they can support you in your time of distress until you can find a man to make you happy again.
