Breaking up is easy to do
I have a close friend who is now happily married, but was great at breaking up with girls in his single days.  He’d take them to a public place (usually a Starbucks), tell them how wonderful they are, but gently let them know that long term they aren’t the right fit for him.  He must...

Well, this is embarrassing (and it’s Bill Cosby’s fault)
I often get a calls that start something like, “I’m not sure, what to say.  This is so embarrassing.”  Whether it’s a DUI, or being caught masturbating in a public park or simply going through a divorce where you feel awkward because you or your wife is cheating, people feel embarrassed.
