How to deal with a friend who is basically using his girlfriend for a place to live?

A friend of mine is essentially using his girlfriend for a place to live. He really should break up with her, but that would mean moving back in with his family. He claims to care about her, but constantly expresses interest in other women, going so far as to say he'd leave her for any one of them, if one opened that door. The girlfriend is clingy, emotionally dependent on him, and completely lacking self-confidence. What do I do? [more inside]

Distancing myself from a friendly colleague

I've got a colleague who I've gotten to know over the last year. He's made a big attempt to be friends. We've hung out together socially a fair bit. I've realised that we have an insurmountable personality clash. I don't enjoy spending time with him. He's not a bad person. I just don't enjoy hanging out with him. He's very good at his job. He's clearly being lined up to become my manager when my current manager leaves. I want to keep excellent professional relations. So how do I back off the friendship part and still keep good work relations? He keeps suggesting things for us to do in the future socially. I'm half considering skipping a work colleagues party next weekend because I can't face spending time with him. It would be fine if I was only going to see him at the party but I'd have to catch a ride with him there and back or make a very obvious excuse to avoid catching that ride.
