How to Get Advice on TresSugar

3 Tips For Writing Group Therapy Posts That Get Advice

Every day our Group Therapy section in the community fills with questions about relationships, etiquette, love and sex, and life's little and big dramas. We love reading them and feature one nearly every day on Très's homepage.

Of course, the more views you get, the more advice you get. So here are three tips on how to write Group Therapy posts that get answers.

  • Keep it short: Sometimes you just want to vent, and Group Therapy is there for that too, but if you'd like tangible advice, then keep it as abbreviated as possible.
  • Know your question: Similar to keeping it short, you also want to get right to the essence of the problem (i.e. "my boyfriend's talking to his ex," "my mother-in-law is insane," "my boyfriend told me he has an STD") rather than be bogged down by details. Tell the essentials; everyone will want to answer because we'll relate.
  • Cleanliness is postliness: We try to keep editing to an absolute minimum when reposting a Group Therapy question on Très, so the more ready-to-wear your words are the more likely we are to post them. Of course, it doesn't need to be perfect!

Now, get posting!

There should be a way to post a follow up on a group therapy post without revealing that you were the one who posted the original post.

I love the controversial posts and threads. It keeps me coming back to this site. I want to read posts that are full of bizarre behavior, hilarious rationalizations (i.e. I'm a semi-virgin who's done another girl with a strap-on), and over-the-top situations. Keep 'em coming! :)

It would be so helpful to be able to comment anonymously on Group Therapy to respond to commenter questions, but it's not possible until Tres decides to feature it on the site.

You have a point, RS! When the details are relevant, they're helpful. Maybe you can think of it as — don't make it unnecessarily long.

I'm not sure if shorter is better. A lot of times when I read something short, there's still so much that has not been explained, and people seem to have a lot of questions. If you keep it short, and people seem to think you're generalizing too much, you could follow up with a comment if someone has questions.
