Scootch closer, ya’ll. It’s Bible study with Dan Savage. On with the show: A happily single woman finally broke down after pressure from her friend to have some sex. Against her misgivings, he convinced her to pursue a relationship, promising that if it didn’t work out, they could go back to being friends, easy-peasy. Guess what! Now that she wants to break it off, he can’t deal with being just friends AND they are starting a business together. Please take heed to this cautionary tale.

And, hear a most UNwholesome tale about what goes down under the mistletoe. Seriously, that whole mistletoe thing has always been a recipe for disaster, don’t you think? 206-302-2064 firstname.lastname@example.org This episode is brought to you by Squarespace.
