Pop a bottle of champagne and say cheers to your wonderful single self.
Promote the psychological sense of ownership without forfeiting actual ownership. To do this for example, with a manager, you need to make them feel pride at the companies success (as if it were a direct result of their efforts), and feel shame and embarrassment at the companies failure (as if it were all their fault).

You can’t take a baby out shopping or out for an overpriced craft cocktail. Department stores don’t have daycare centers and wine bars don’t have highchairs (thank God).
You’re both adults. Stop asking if you should cut their meat into bite-sized pieces for them. If you can’t handle letting them make their own decisions get a sperm donor, not a boyfriend.
You’re probably going to watch an in flight movie without headphones because you won’t spring for the $2 pair they offer, and you’re going to ask your seat-neighbor what’s happening every five minutes because she was smart enough to not lose the free pair Apple provided her with. Basically you’re a monster.

Sure, he may have completely blown off the bar you invited him to while he posted obnoxious Snapchats from one nearby, but hey, we’re all a little flakey, aren’t we? And he did have a lot of tests to study for the week after you guys went to that cute breakfast date on Sunday morning, right? Wrong. You don’t suspect that you are just one of many girls that he is currently texting and sending cute good morning texts to.
When your value system comes under attack, any defense of them, however hypocritical to said values, is not only appropriate but necessary. Thus, Christians are under no obligation to argue with charity, and secular progressives can keep their skepticism and tolerance at the door. To do otherwise is to allow the wrong people to win.
