It just occurred to me, after hearing of various friends' relationship woes, that someone should come up with some form of relationship outplacement service.
Sure, right now, there's places like Dump Monkey
, which will do all the breakup, but for more friendly breakups, relationship outplacement might help people get over these things faster.
Just think--if the breakee chooses to, he can go to a followup counselor specifically catered to his faults. He can get that thin blue binder filled with all sorts of paperwork and exercises to help him cope with this change.
Counselor: She said your oral sex skills were lacking. Here are a few videos to help. She's willing to provide a few weeks "severance" to make sure you get up to speed. Should you find a new partner, however, any severance benefits will cease.
And stop picking your nose.
In other news, I wrote a couple of smutty drabbles for the open_on_sunday
"Unconventional" challenge. Given that these are my first real attempts at smut, I'm not really sure how they turned out. "Shades"
is a Fred piece, while "Unsettled"
(a.k.a. "Why She Was Bad") is Buffy-centric.
