How much should you spend on a present for your three-month friends-with-benefits?

Is it a total faux-pas to break up with her on New Year’s Eve? Being single during the holidays can be difficult, especially if all your friends are paired off (and spending time with their significant other).

The holiday season is a busy time for everyone whether you are single, married or in a relationship.We all get invited to tons of holiday gatherings but do not book yourself so thin that you don't save time for the two of you to see each other.If you see him on December 1 and then don't come up for air again to see him until December 28th, chances are, he won't be around anymore by that point to see you ever again. Figure out if going away together makes sense for the two of you.Plus, a bunch of people standing around talking shop while getting drunk and doing karaoke is no outsider's idea of fun. Think twice about casually inviting him to any family holiday party.He'll probably be relieved if you let him off the hook, explaining it'll be easier on both of you that way. Similarly: Don't be offended if he doesn't bring you to his. Don't tell yourself, "Oh, what the hell — why not kill two birds with one stone?
