Failing or Ending Friendships

Perhaps a particularly female problem - when/should one ever "dump" friendships or just downgrade people to "associate"? How is this done? Reference to female because of so many articles similar to: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Books/story?id=1808389&page=1 [more inside]

I KNOW. Well. Sometimes. :(

How can I curb my know-it-all tendencies and adjust the way I say or suggest things during a conversation? How can I come to terms with my frustration about being asked to filter my words when others aren’t tasked with the same request? [more inside]

How do I stop judging them?

When my friends allow men to treat them poorly, I begin to lose respect for them. On an intellectual level, I know that it’s heartless and unkind of me to look down on my friends who are struggling, it’s victim-blaming, and I HATE that I feel this way. How can I stop it? [more inside]

I need an app to help me build a stronger network.

Looking for a network building/maintaining tool. Is there some sort of app (mac or web based) that will allow me to track how long it has been since talking to someone? Ideally I'd like to see one page with a horizontal bar graph with the number of days since last contact on the x-axis. So as the time between talking grows, the bar expands outwards. [more inside]

Selling $3m violins for a friend...questions on the topic..

A friend of mine is looking to sell two extraordinarily valuable violins (in the 3+ million dollar range). I think he's hoping to sell it privately to avoid the huge cut the auction houses take, and he's suggested that if I can find him a buyer, he'd be happy to pay a finder's fee of some sort. So two questions... [more inside]

But they know so much about Wine and Chocolates!

In a few days I will be staying with friend's family in western France, at a house they own. I will be in the UK the next few days. Normally I would bring wine or chocolates as a thank you for the accommodation, but France does these much better and cheaper than the UK (I am told). I am Canadian. What could I bring that would still be a great gift, that I could find in London? It should be something like food or drink, and something of benefit to people on vacation. Price about $50. The friends I am visiting are French/Canadian and appreciate quality/luxury

Family Friendly Austin

Looking for family friendly neighborhoods in Austin. My wife and two small kids will be relocating to Austin. Our current neighborhood is filled with kids playing in the street and neighbors interacting with each other. We know and hang-out with a lot of our neighbors. We want a neighborhood / community like that in Austin. I know a lot of master planned communities bill themselves as family friendly but a lot of them always seem like ghost towns. Where are the true active / friendly communities in Austin?
