We spend a lot of energy looking for shortcuts to save time, and sure, those shortcuts add up. But when I look back, my biggest time regrets aren't spending too much time on Twitter or mismanaging my daily tasks.

Dear Lovehacker, I moved cities late last year and my old boss is going to be in town for a visit soon. He suggested that we catch up but my only availability was during the evening. I didn't even think that it could be a problem until after we arranged to have dinner. He has a wife and I'm not sure if I should be worried about what she would think, especially because I'm single. Am I just being paranoid or is there something a bit off about having dinner alone with a married man? Thanks, B.
