Allow heartstrings to be slack

Sanne (21): “My boyfriend regularly has an evening out with his fraternity. We often argue about that. The idea that he meets other women on such an evening drives me mad.

Thomas (24): “In order to complete my study, I have to write a thesis. I have had trouble getting started with it for months now. I keep telling myself that I will get started, but I can’t seem to put pen to paper. Do I need a good kick up the butt?” Ingrid: Deferment behaviour.
