Dating questions

dating filter: (1) What are the best, most direct, yet polite questions to ask someone during the email stage of online dating in order to get a real sense of who they are? Any suggestions?

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]

Socks for Sweaty Man Feet

Recommendations for crew-length dress socks for my sweaty-footed boyfriend? He has hyperhydrosis and is looking for moisture-absorbent dress socks that hit right below or at the calf. Regarding Smartwool: we live in south Florida, where the temperature is 90 degrees for half the year, so he's concerned that wool will make his feet very hot and sweat even more.
