The Singles Scene

Q. What would you do if you found out that your best friend’s new boyfriend was engaged to one of your co-workers and you were invited to the engagement party?  Would you tell her?  My friend is so excited and thrilled over this guy, who has been suspect to me from the beginning. I’m afraid to tell her because she is very paranoid and is always accusing others of being jealous of her.  What would you do?

A. I would take her to the engagement party and let her witness the announcement.

Q.  Recently, I was out with a guy and we were having a great time until this thing happened.  He was talking very animatedly and the top portion of his dentures fell out of his mouth, and I caught them before they hit the ground.  He was so embarrassed, he couldn’t look at me.  He quickly jumped in his car without saying a word and drove away.  I haven’t heard from him since.  Since the incident, I’ve been wondering if I should have let the teeth hit the ground. All of my friends say I should have let the teeth hit the ground.  They feel that I made the situation worse when I handled his teeth.  Do you agree?   If so, should I call and apologize?

A.  I think it doesn’t matter.  There is nothing you could have done differently that would have prevented the embarrassment.  You should put the incident behind you as he is obviously doing.   A call to him would be a reminder of an unpleasant happening.  Leave it be. He’s probably trying to forget it ever happened.  I certainly would be.
