Dear Wendy: “My Ex Hit Me And Now He Wants Me Back”

I started a long-distance (1,500 miles apart) relationship with a wonderful man in August of last year. Things were going great, but suddenly took a turn for the worse in January when he was diagnosed with cancer. I was able to take two semesters off from school to go be his caregiver. We continued to build our relationship and he constantly expressed his gratitude for my being there. Unfortunately, about a month into his treatment, he started to become verbally abusive, and began to pick fights. Months went by, and threats of hitting me turned into actually hitting me, on two occasions. I reached out to his family and friends for support, but he told them I was a crazy liar. I begged him to see a therapist, or to talk to his doctor about the medications and steroids he was on, but he refused. When he was done his last round of chemo and in remission, I ended the relationship, packed my bags and went home. We have stayed in contact, and he surprised me last weekend by driving out to visit me. He spent a few days at my apartment, and was once again the man I fell in love with. He told me that he’d told his family about the abuse, that he loved me, and that he wants to get back together. My friends think I should cut all contact with him, and that he lost his chance to be with me once he hit me. I think his behavior was caused by the drugs and steroids he was on, so my decision isn’t easy. Is it really as cut-and-dry as my friends think, or can I give him a second chance? — Abused Caregiver

Channing Tatum’s Lopsided Hairdo

Channing Tatum‘s just a boy with a new haircut. And while lots of folks are blasting it as the must uggs thing ever, I think it’s cute and would like to defend it. Why? Because it’s the same buzzed-on-one-side, long-and-floppy-on-the-other style that my middle school crush (hey, Ganon!) sported, circa 1992. Sure, we were still wearing Hypercolor then, but whatever.

Girl Beetles Are Thirsty For Love

Thirsty? Maybe you should go boink. Well, you should if you’re a lady and also a beetle. For female beetles, sex is like a big jug of Vitamin Water because the males produce literally 10 percent of their body weight in semen. So, in human terms, my average BF would be blowing a 20 lb. wad. Dayum! Anyway, a University Of Exeter study found dehydrated lady beetles will literally have sex with a male beetle just because they need a drink. And you thought your standards were low!
