Most friends told me not to fret -- it was my birthday and if ever there is a night for drunken debauchery, this was it.
Make sure that when you communicate, you are not adding extra hurt or complications to the topic you are addressing. The point is to achieve better understanding and harmony after every conflict or conversation.
In my mid-twenties I was in constant relationships with little time to myself. Each new partner brought some hope for great love, but inevitably ended up falling into a similar pattern as the last. It wasn't their fault; it was mine.

When it's all said and done, you've been good to me, and I am thankful for our special bond. It's clear to me that leaving you would be too much for me to bear. After all, I'm certainly not the first woman in history to be tempted by an apple.
I'm returning this text from my college buddy because he's such a loser that he'll just keep texting me until I do. He'll only pull my chain if I tell him I'm on a date. Gimme a minute. Here's a five. Get us a couple of drinks.

The study found that, contrary to popular perception, people who ask for advice are seen as more intelligent than those who don't. But the researchers also noted that participants only granted the perceived IQ boost to people who asked them questions.
I've come to realize that kitchen activities might be even more telling than I thought. I've let cooking become a benchmark against which I test the health of my relationships.
