An external conflict with all of these characters is that they have so many problems with the relationships they have. To fix these problems, they write letters to Greg for advice. I agree that they should write letters because they are trying to fix their relationships and they are not just giving up right away. An internal conflict is that they keep everything bottled up inside and they do not know how to express their feelings. Also, they don't always listen to Greg. I would disagree with this because he gives good advice. He tells you that you can do better then what you are doing to help you in the future. Some just ignore this and they tell Greg that they hate him. In my opinion, that is not a good idea. If someone is giving you good advice, you should take it. Most of the characters do try to fix their problems by writing to Greg and asking for good advice, and they actually use his advice to help with their problems. But, others would rather just give up and not care about what happens to them with their future relationships.
