Everyone's life experiences here can be extremely helpful.

I'm not professionally certified but I can offer a different perspective.

When it comes to the subject of Relationships, we tend to get soooooo emotionally wrapped up in the problem, that the most obvious, logical, common sense solution isn't even near our radar.

Seeking advice from total strangers, that have zero stakes in the situation, aren't emotionally involved with said parties, can "see" the situation with clarity.

That's why I think relationship forums can be helpful to those that truly want help.

I think good hard life experience and common sense trumps most forms of "advice", regardless of education or profession. Unless someone has a serious mental disorder or they are suffering from depression or some type of phobia, a sit-down with a professional counselor probably isn't necessary.
I agree. But then there are those who should seek professional help but can't be bothered to make the effort for themselves, and go looking for help on messageboard forums instead...

Qualifications? A pulse and a brain seem to be enough right?

A pulse alone appears to be sufficient.

What does it really matter what his definition of "qualified" means? If you take the time to read both the question and the responses it's obvious that the OP's definition of "qualified" is self explanatory and the respondents thus far have had no problem either understanding the question or answering it.

I'm not so certain and why I responded as I did. I'll leave it at that.

I did read the responses and I didn't see anything obvious in her posts about what she considers "qualified", hence my question. It's a straight forward and valid question, I'm just curious what her definition or meaning of qualified is, why do you care if I ask?

True, sometimes it seems the brain was left at the door
