Keep your dilemmas coming in - we love to answer them in our bonus episodes every Monday! This week, Charleen and Ellie are giving advice as to how to deal with having little luck with anyone you start to catch feelings for. What should you do if you can't seem to get close to your boyfriend's friend's girlfriends? Should you wait and see if a counsellor will solve your partner's mental health issues, or will it just end up hurting you? And do you drop a friend who uses you as an emotional punching bag?
Happy New Year, Birds! In our first episode of 2024, Charleen and Ellie talk about New Years traditions and kisses. The girls listen back to the New Years Resolutions they made at the start of 2023 to see how many of them they stuck to, as well as making new Resolutions for the year ahead. The girls answer your dilemmas in Secrets From The Stalls, including whether a listener should wait around for a guy who is very busy with setting up a business right now? And should a girl stay with her boyfriend of four years when they don't do much together as a result of his anxieties?
