Ashley and Brad,

My boyfriend and I broke up about two months ago, but we're still on good terms, which is good for me because -- occasionally -- I need him to come over and fix stuff (like my garbage disposal or my sink faucet).

My friends say I should stop asking him to do stuff for me since I broke up with him. They say calling him for help is like I'm leading him on.
But I say if he's willing to do it, who is it really hurting?

What do you think?

Thanks,
Jill

17 THINGS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW HOW TO DO IN HER OWN HOME

1. Cook a signature meal that's not toast. Something simple-yet-delicious that you can whip up for guests. Scrambled eggs count but only if you add a little spinach and cheese.

2. Clean up and put everything away in a timely fashion. A place for everything and everything in its place, you know?

3. Change lightbulbs. How many women does it take to change a lightbulb? One. Duh.

RISKY PLACES FOR ATM

If you are like us and rarely have cash and use your ATM then you need to be aware of the 4 riskiest places to use your ATM card.

First, here’s something you should know. Debit cards may look identical to credit cards, but there's one key difference.
