A Van Down By The River

My wife and I live in an expensive (by non-NYC standards) NYC apartment. Recently, lamenting how much of our salary went down the rent drain, we wondered if we could save money by living in a van. (This is a thought experiment. We're not really planning on doing it.) Is this feasible economically? [more inside]

How do you know if it's worth pursuing?

I am now in a living situation where I live with a bunch of friends. I was always close friends with one of the girls (for about a year) and one night we cuddled. It led to some more cuddling for a few nights but it bothered me. Not because I didn't like it but because I'm the type that wants things to be clear. I've always been in the mindset that if I like a girl, I will pursue her and make it clear to her. Leaving things unclear can lead to messy relationships/breakups/fights and hurt feelings in the end.

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]

Soccer Dad

How do you keep your sense of adventure when you sit in a cubicle and have to pick up the kids at 5 o'clock? I love my wife. I love my kids. I like the fact that my soul-sucking job allows me to use my brain while paying for piano lessons, vacations, and an educational trust. I am not looking to get rid of said wife, kids, or job. What I am looking for is a renewed sense of adventure within my current 'constraints'. [more inside]
