The Relationship Judge – Kicks Off Tomorrow

We will have our first Relationship Judge posting tomorrow, so stay tuned.  We’ll need your input and judgment!

As you may recall, The Relationship Judge (see page ) works like this:

The Rules For those writing in:

(1) Send an email to with the subject line “The Relationship Judge.”   Tell us your story.  What kind of a relationship are we judging?  Romantic? Friendship? Marriage? Dating? Family member?  Tell us the basics about yourself and the person you are writing about:  Your age and the age of person you are writing in about, length of relationship, basically anything pertinent to the problem. You can remain anonymous if you’d like.  The more you tell us, the better.

(2) What is the issue you want us to judge on (e.g., Your boyfriend is spending multiple nights away claiming to be “hanging out with his friends” or you’ve seen some strange text messages coming in from unidentified people to your significant other’s cell phone or you’ve seen some odd credit card charges on a credit card statement, etc. and you want to know whether you’re being paranoid or should say something)?  It’s a good idea to end your email with a couple of  specific questions you want opinions on.

(3) Give us a couple of days.  The Relationship Judge (Stacey B), will provide her opinion and everybody else is free to chime in as well.  Stacey B reserves the right to summarize your issue.

(4) Please promise to check back in with us and let us know how you are doing.

For those chiming in on people’s relationship issues:

(1) Be kind.  This person is having a problem and probably feels awful.  This is an encouraging, positive space.  Let’s be nice.  The golden rule applies here: Advise unto others as you’d have advice given to your grandmother (or something like that).

(2) Be honest.

(3) Be reasonable.  Advice given should be idealistic, but achievable.
