The great thing about clare is that she’s not interested in bullshit or flowery explanations or conversations. She’s a solution orientated, practical person who manages to break down seemingly complex and hopeless situations into their practical components.
For example, a mutual friend was waxing lyrical about her situation with her boyfriend, and moaning on and on about all the different dimensions to the problem. Clare cut her dead and said “It’s simple… this is happening because you depend on him for money. Get a part time job and the arguments will stop.”
The friend took her advice, and lo and behold… problem solved.
