Genuine letters?


Dear Hillary,

Since everyone uses emails these days, which are pretty anonymous, how do you know whether the letters you get are genuine?  I reckon some of them are using the fact they can hide behind nicknames and the email system to pull your leg.  Do you honestly believe everyone who writes to you is real?

The Disbeliever

Dear Disbeliever,

I am an Agony Aunt, not a detective, my Petal.  Does it really matter if someone tells a few porkies?  I may be naïve and old, but I can recognize that behind every nickname there lies a frightened little boy who is having some kind of relationship problem, usually with our young Thai ladies.  So, what’s your problem “Disbeliever”?  And, not everyone uses emails, as you will see by this letter I received this month.
