    Last year, I took a course at Drinkmasters, and then afterwards got TIPS certified online.  I have never worked in a bar, just took the class for fun.  The class was a lot of fun, but I think it did t more »

    I've been in this situation a couple of times. It's understandable when people talk about something you can't relate to and then they move on. But it's uncomfortable when the vast majority of the conv more »

    Not an appropriate solution, but... You: Excuse me, aren't you Dr. Smith? Dr: No, I'm Dr. Jones. You: Of course, my mistake. We've never met, but my colleague has mentioned you before. I'm pretty sure more »

    I was treated for cancer last year, and am fortunately in remission. As a result of the chemo, I lost my hair. It is growing back, slowly but surely. Adding insult to injury, the regrowth is horrible more »

    This sounds like me and my husband. Before we lived together, my solution was to spend most of our time at my place because his messiness and lack of organization drove me crazy. Once we lived togethe more »

    It sounds like you have a routine down, and it works with your current life. Whether or not it will work with your post-med school life is to be determined. You can't predict the future, so it's tough more »

    Sally - Yikes! My comments about trashing the kids were not directed at you. I would put you in the "constructive criticism" category. Especially your more recent post (I think it's great that you too more »

    Great advice, Takara and James! Very thoughtful. And let's remember people that these are high school kids. Constructive criticism is fair. Trashing them on a popular website/blog for age-appropriate more »

    I would proceed with extreme caution. While things are good now, it's inevitable that you will encounter some bad times. And when you do, his reaction may be off the charts. I feel bad generalizing, b more »

    My old boyfriend would do this with his high school friends. At first it was no big deal, we all need to forget about our responsibilities and have some carefree fun every once and a while. But he nev more »

    I recently dealt with BoA on a mortgage where we were putting 29% down, debt to income ratios were well within the acceptable range, could verify employment, income etc and our credit scores were in t more »

    Short of kicking them out of your lives (which is probably the approach I would take, but that's me), try saying one of the following: "I'm sorry, but we were just about to head out for the evening. C more »

    I'd be upset about the trip, especially because it's over the holidays. When you two decided to live together, his parents (and others) needed to accept you as a couple that isn't going away. And that more »

    If you are itching to move to a new city, and you can do so while keeping your job, then move to a new city. I just don't think it should be the city your boyfriend is moving to. Red flags everywhere. more »

    I get her desire to have her fairy tale wedding, but your circumstances plant you both firmly in the real world and not the land of fairy tales. I wish more people would consider the marriage to be mo more »

    Before you buy a condo, make sure you get a copy of the budget and the rules. It's not just how much you pay, and what that covers, you have to consider how they spend the money, how much cash is in r more »

    I think we may be being a little too harsh on the speed in which these two moved in together. Every relationship is different. Sure, hindsight is 20/20, and clearly knowing what she knows now, moving more »

    You have to go to the wedding. You made a commitment. (Although, weird that you are the maid of honor at his cousins wedding when you two were only together for 8 months. Did you know her previously? more »

    Hmm... You seem to spend an awful lot of time together and talk too frequently for this to be as simple as "just friends.". Guys, especially guys that age, don't talk to women on the phone every day u more »

    Marriage is hard work. I'm still a newbie at being married, just shy of 9 months. So all I can tell you is that you need to work at your marriage every day. You need to never take your marriage or you more »

    Can I throw a psycho analysis theory out there? Now that her sister's off at college, any chance she's afraid her dad's alleged loneliness will make him consider dating other women, and she is not rea more »
