The Legalities Of

Living Together

When a co-worker moved in with her boyfriend, she came to regret her decision very quickly.  Two months after she moved in, she came home unexpectedly from work and caught him in a very indiscreet position with another woman.  He asked her to move and she had nowhere to go.  She ended up in a shelter because she was too proud to go to friends for help.  She came to the conclusion that she set herself up for disaster because her name wasn’t on the apartment lease. Here are more examples of the pitfalls of living together without the benefit of marriage or legal agreements.        MORE

The Run-In

The restaurant had dim lighting, but Mitch recognized her from forty feet away.  He hadn’t seen her in two years, and there she sat with another man engaged in giggly chatter.  From across the room, he studied them.  She looked much better now than before.  Her hair was chic, her clothes fashionable and she looked happy.  As he struggled to maintain the mood at his table, he recalled their breakup and how she begged him to reconsider his decision to leave her.  She had stood in the door of their apartment to prevent him from leaving, but he had pushed out of the way. Her last words had been, “I’ll never love another man.” But he’d fallen in love with another woman and he couldn’t hear her.   MORE

How Fit Are Your Finances?

by Liz Weston

I was surprised when I discovered that a guy I used to date was getting his payroll checks cashed at the local currency exchange, and didn’t have a checking account.  Studies show that over 54% of today’s singles are heads of households and are therefore making all financial decisions regarding their lifestyle without input or advice from outside sources. Have you paid a late fee on a credit card or bounced a check in the past year?  Did you misplace a bill, a statement, or some other financial record?  Are you confused about how much of your net worth is tied up in stocks, or exactly how much credit-card interest you paid last year?

Q. I live with my boyfriend, but I feel like a boarder living in his house without privileges. He has certain house rules that I must abide by or he threatens to put me out. Though I live here, he won’t give me a key because he doesn’t want me here when he’s not home. I have no family or friends here, and I have nowhere to go. When I get off from work, depending on the weather, I go to the library or the park until he comes home. I don’t know what to do or where to go for help. MORE

10 Steps To
Social Greatness

by Lisa Laird

Don’t Be A Know It All. When you’re out conversing socially, never pretend to know what you do not. It’s considered smart to admit what you don’t know, and even sexy when you seek to know more about what you don’t know. Use Your Wit: Make it a practice to say what you need to say, but use your creativity. Doing so will put you among the elite in stellar conversation. Pay Attention. If he/she says she’s just looking for a friend, he/she isn’t being subtle.  They’re probably not interested in making a romantic connection with you.      MORE
