Q: I am a single woman buying my first home. My best friend bought a house about eight months ago, in the same area and for the same price that I'm looking in. We're even using the same agent. Anyhow, my problem might seem a little childish, but I can't get over the fact that I like her house better than anything I'm seeing now. It's hard to find anything that even comes close to hers in the same price range now. I can't stop comparing every house I see to hers, and they all come up short. How am I going to get over this?

A: Your question might as well have answered itself: Get over yourself! It's really critical that you manage this issue, and manage it quickly. Why? Because it's only going to get worse, not better.
