Dear Auntie Nangy,
I've had sex with about 20 guys in the last six months. I want to change but I went out again on Friday and I met a very sexy guy who bought me drinks all night. He told me he was 24 and a student but I can't remember his name. He asked me back to his place. We had sex three or four times. It was good at the time but when I woke up in his flat, I thought: who is this guy? Am I really a loose woman?
I'm one of three girls in my family and I work. I have many friends. My parents are always fighting and saying they are going to get divorced. I don’t want to be at home when they fight.
I can't even blame the alcohol for sleeping with every guy I meet. What is wrong with me?
You might suffer from low self-esteem and one of the reasons could be that your parents don’t provide a warm and loving home environment.
You then use sex to feel loved but as soon as it is over you know that it means nothing. In fact, it makes you feel even more ‘empty’ and unloved and you then like yourself even less.
You simply have to stop this destructive behaviour.
Not only are you doing emotional damage, you are also risking your sexual health.
Stay away from alcohol, for starters. Too much alcohol makes you careless and irresponsible.
Don’t blame your bad behaviour on you parents. It’s your life and your responsibility to take control of your actions.
All the best. Somewhere out there is a man who will love you for being you - one that will not just have sex with you and dump you like a used toy. Believe in yourself!

Dear Auntie Nangy,
I'm a 27-year-old guy. I work with a 24-year-old girl but she is the boss’s girlfriend. They live together but she keeps on flirting with me when he is not at work. She is very sexy and she makes me laugh a lot. Over the weekend she called me from a pub and said she was afraid to go home alone because her boyfriend was out of town. I went to their house and she was waiting outside. We went inside and she kissed me. We had sex the whole night. Every time the boss goes away we get together and have sex.
I don't think he suspects anything but I am getting very worried that he will find out.
What must I do?
End this business right now before someone starts talking. Surely someone at the office must have noticed something by now? You could end up losing your job if your boss finds out and I don’t think this girl will then come running after you. She is playing with you. Get out. Fast.

Dear Auntie Nangy,
I am 13 and we moved to Windhoek from the coast during the last school term.
I miss my friends at the coast very much. I don’t want to go back to my new school when the term starts. Everyone in my school is a real snob. They don’t like me and say I am different. I am used to making myself a bit different from everyone else. My friends at the coast used to like me for being an individual. Girls at the new school say I am ‘wild’.
I could start dressing and speaking like them but I really don't see why I should have to. My grades are really good and I want to study art at university one day. I want to fit in but I don’t want to change just to make them happy.
Moving is always a very emotional issue. You had to give up one lifestyle and now have to adapt to a new one in a new environment. The only familiar thing you can cling to at the moment is the way you look and dress. But you know that you have to make new friends and the girls at your new school obviously don’t know the real you yet. It's not about giving in, it's about being smart.
You have to meet people half-way in order to fit in. Always be yourself but stick to the school’s dress code. When you go to university you can really let go and let the creativity explode!
The sooner you can be happy in school, the easier it will be to get on with your studies and achieve your ambition to get to university.
If the other girls still aren't friendly even when you do make an effort, talk to a teacher about how excluded you feel. It could be considered a form of bullying if they carry on excluding you and your school should have a policy against that.
