6 Fashionable Earring Options For Sensitive Ears

When it comes to finding fashionable earrings, girls with sensitive ears have an especially difficult time finding options that won't cause irritation but still look great. The sensitivity you or someone you know experiences when wearing jewelry is from a metal called nickel, which is found in a large percentage of available jewelry. The cheaper the jewelry, the more nickel it probably contains, as nickel is a stabilizer and filler metal.

Metals like gold are incredibly soft and can be difficult to craft items with if they're not stabilized with another metal. Nickel is easy to mold, holds form well, and mixes well with other metals. Unfortunately, nickel is also harmful to skin and can even cause cancer under the right conditions (mostly industrial applications). Here are six fashionable earring options for sensitive ears.

Help! My Friend Is a No Show

Dear Armchair Psychologist,

I have a friend who doesn't reply to my messages about meeting for dinner, etc. Although, last week I ran into her at a local restaurant of mine, it has always been awkward to be friends with her. Should I continue our friendship or discontinue it? We've been friends for a total four years and nothing has changed. I don't feel as comfortable with her as my other close friends, and I don't think I'll ever be able to reach that comfort zone in pure friendship.


Dear Sadsies,

I am sorry to hear you've been neglected by your friend. You may already have the answer to your question, since you're evaluating the non-existing bond between yourself and your friend. However, I'll gladly affirm to you that a friendship that isn't reciprocated is not a good friendship.

I have had a similar situation with a friend whom I'd grown up with but who was also consistently a very negative person, a true Debby Downer. One day, I just had enough of her criticism and vitriol. I stopped making excuses for her and dumped her. It was a great decision and I haven't looked back. With that in mind, it could be possible that something has changed in your friend's life, but it's insignificant if she isn't responding to you. It's time to dump her and spend your energy where it's appreciated. Don't dwell on this friend. History is not enough to create a lasting bond, it only means just that—you and your friend have history—so let her be history!
