    Your partner is being courted - by a Knight of the Round Table apparently.

    • A. 

      Oh good, they got a reservation at that restaurant I told them would be perfect.

    • B. 

      Well this is excessive, but its good to feel desired. Cautiously optimistic.

      Less is more. We're going to have coffee and discuss getting things sent to the house- I don't think that's acceptable. This needs to dial back a bit.

      This pushiness is assuming too much too soon. I'm arranging a dinner and we'll discuss boundaries.

      Hold on, I'm figuring out the prison term for assault and battery.

      This never happened, because you were waaaaay too canny to go to a party where that vulture might attend. Who needs trouble?

  • 4. 
    It's time for the holiday party! Your invitation includes two guest passes. 
    • A. 

      Great! We can all go together. It's always so nice of my boss to remember I need two extra passes.

    • B. 

      Well, the first two can go - the others made plans in advance. Who needs trouble?

      Remember too late you used to date one of the hotel receptionist in college. You call a family meeting for damage control.

    • D. 

      What you don't know won't kill you. A weekend with a friend is all you need or want to know. The details can stay private. But that's enough travelling for the month, really.

    • E. 

      Decide it's time to throw out those photos after all. The divorce was years ago.
