Dear Wendy: “Should I Move In With My Crush?”

I’m moving to a new city soon. I have a female friend who lives there whom I’ve always had a crush on. I was looking forward to the chance to ask her out, see how she felt about me, and if there was anything between us. However, before I got a chance, she asked if she could move in with me as she was having trouble finding a new apartment. As the request was a bit time sensitive I said yes, not wanting to keep her from having a place to live while I sorted out my feelings. Now I’m not sure what to do. Should I just lay out my feelings and risk freaking her out (and making our soon-to-be living arrangements a bit awkward), should I keep it to myself and see how things work out, or does the sheer fact that she asked to move in with me mean I’m a permanent fixture in the friend zone. — Confused Renter

Do You Believe In A Birthday Greeting Hierarchy?

Way back in the stone age when I was a kid, there were only a handful of popular ways you could wish someone a happy birthday. There was the face-to-face method. There was the tried and true phone call. And there was the always-thoughtful greeting card. These days, with email, text messaging, e-cards, and social networking, our options are a little more extensive, which begs the question: What’s the appropriate hierarchy of birthday greetings (or, perhaps it begs another question: Why does everything have to be so complicated?)?

RIP: Hipsters?

If you live in Brooklyn, ride a bike, wear skinny jeans, or listen to bands with the words “wolf” or “deer” in their names, you’ve probably been called a hipster at one point or another. And each time this has happened, you’ve probably denied it or been offended. Looks like you may now rest in peace with your collection of Duran Duran band tees because according to pop culture analysts, the era of the hipster is over. Or at least nearing its end. That’s what’s implied with the new text from the n+1 foundation called What Was The Hipster: A Sociological Investigation (was being the operative word). In a New York magazine article adapted from the essay, the author points out that yes, hipsters are still alive and well but that “we have reached the end of an epoch in the life of the type. Its evolution lasted from 1999 to 2009, though it has shifted appearance dramatically over the decade. It survived this year; it may persist. Indications are everywhere, however, that we have come to a moment of stocktaking.” … Keep reading »
