** Andie writes for a women's magazine known as ''Composure''. It is very unlikely that this is a coincidence with ''Magazine/Cosmopolitan'', another women's magazine. Her boss states that "serious journalism", things "that matter" to Kate Hudson, such as politics, the environment, and foreign affairs are inappropriate for a women's magazine mainly comprised of things such as how-to's, make-up, and fashion.

Possibly makes sense in this context, however, as their situation is going rather well due to Ben doing everything in his power to not break up with her, while she's trying to make things worse until he does.
