Barely There Bud
You never let anyone get in the way of what you want. And while serious ambition can help when it comes to your career, it can hurt personal bonds. Fibbing to a pal so you can go see your guy is no good, notes psychotherapist Linda Miles, Ph.D., author of Friendship On Fire. “One of the most important things in a friendship is trust, and if people feel they can’t believe you, they’ll move on.” You’re better off being honest. Go ahead, tell her you want to hang out but may need to bounce a bit earlier than normal because you’re meeting your new guy later on.
