Slow to Learn
When I was in college, believe it or not, I had the gall to buy some binoculars and spy on college folks in neighboring dorm halls. I know it's a cliché, but gosh, did I really do this? I guess I was desperate. I guess we all were in college, no? So, anyway, the first time I looked out my window, the dorm hall I was in was crooked. So, I saw across and caught this good-looking American guy with an American flag on his wall with this good-looking girl. What luck for me? Not too far away, nice big windows, and what grad student is ashamed? I met her later and recognized her in the cafeteria. Then try to imagine me when I met her boyfriend! Both were grad students. We became great friends. We even gave each other gifts at Christmas almost without thinking. It turned out she was from France, too! So, later that year I bought some binoculars and checked out undergrads in neighboring dorms. Long live love! Now I know how my best friend felt in high school when he watched people get dressed for work at dawn as a neighborhood paper boy! Gosh, am I slow to learn!

Why Do Engaged Couples Call It Quits?
A reader wrote to us hoping we could tell him why so many of his friends got engaged, then called off the wedding. We'll get to the reasons in a moment, but first we want to make it clear that people who call off their weddings should be applauded. Ending a relationship, in front of the prying eyes of friends and families, takes a lot of guts. With approximately 50% of all marriages ending in divorce, it's best to end a doomed relationship before a legal nightmare begins. I have personally have watched couples cheat on each other until the very week before their wedding, believing, stupidly, that once they walk down the aisle, their urge to cheat will suddenly disappear.
Should You Be Friends With an Ex?
So you're trying to decide whether it's wise to be friends with an ex? Sometimes it can work; sometimes not. You might have friends who previously dated and can still joke about the time she cried all through that sappy movie. You might also have friends who can't be in the same club together - one of them has to leave if they happen to bump into each other. How do you decide whether to pursue friendship after a breakup? Think about the following ex factors.
