We’ve told people what to do almost all our lives. Do people listen to us? Probably not. But now, starting this week, our advice will be completely unavoidable. In a moment of insanity/inspiration, we’ve been given the opportunity to blog our advice (however questionable) for your reading pleasure.
So you know who we are, let us introduce ourselves to you.
I am Annabelle, I trained to be a life coach, but the economy being what it is I am also a barista and dog walker. I give great advice and make a mean latte. I have never been married, but that in no way should make you question my expertise about relationships – no matter what you’ve heard from my sister. Scarlett is married, which is amazing considering the smoldering path of abandoned projects she’s left in her wake.
I’m Scarlett, and yes, I may have a fear of commitment. I’ve been lots of things, from a photographer to an art gallery manager, with about five minutes as an answering service operator thrown in for good measure. Boy, was that one a fiasco. Joe and I have been married for six years, and we have two kids. Before kids, I lived everywhere – except the Pacific Northwest because there are not enough hair products in the world for that kind of rain.
Between the two of us, we can tell you about kids, aging parents, dating, not dating, un-dating, where to buy shoes and whether or not a Brazilian wax is the way to go.
We don’t even know what un-dating is, but we can tell you how to do it.
Some of the questions we fielded for our first columns include mean girls, awkward work situations and really bad things to watch for in relationships. If you don’t find our answers helpful (or entertaining), the questions will at least make you feel like you’re not alone.
We hope that you will be flocking to your computers to read us, and that you will shoot us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org We’re the Fix-It Sisters. Don’t make us break something.
Annabelle and Scarlett Darling
