Dear Todd Parker,

I'm a 27-year-old guy and I broke up with my girlfriend of six years a few months ago. I decided that if I didn't want to marry her I was just stringing both of us along. My dating life before her was easier since I was still in college, going to parties, and constantly meeting new people. Now I am in the realm of the adult dating world and have been a bit lost but learning quickly.

I met a girl a few weeks after the breakup and started hanging out from time to time; very low-key. It's not like I'm looking for a serious relationship or anything, but I feel like that I had been in one for so much of my dating life that it's all I know.

Dear Todd Parker,

I just got out of a relationship that had been going for almost two years. It was really good for a long time, but over the last six months, I was starting to feel like it just wasn't going to work. I had talked to my boyfriend about the issues I was having and he seemed sympathetic to my feelings. I just wanted him to know that things weren't working for me.

A couple of weeks after we had that conversation, he broke up with me. Just like that. Even though I was planning on breaking up with him if we couldn't work our stuff out, I didn't expect him to pull the plug like that. It just felt so cold-blooded it was like he'd rather just walk away than make an effort toward fixing the problem.

It may seem obvious that successful business depends on satisfied customers. However, many businesses don't realize that customer service goes far beyond answering a question or replacing a defective product. Providing great customer service means understanding what's important to your customers and how well your business performs around those priorities.

Here are just a few ways businesses can go the extra mile to expand their customer service plan to develop effective marketing relationships.

Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match

In Joel Stein's recent 'Time' article 'Match Point,' he poked fun at a new claim made by the dating site eHarmony that it has, in fact, discovered the science of love. At a psychology convention in February, the site claimed that couples who share similar traits (interests, beliefs, intelligence, romantic prowess, wealth and overall attractiveness) make the happiest marriages. In his tongue-in-cheek response, Stein wrote, 'If two people aren't enough alike in 29 categories, eHarmony won't match them and their marriage is going to suck.'
