Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s A Freeloader”

My boyfriend and I are both 25 and have been together for three years. The problem is that my boyfriend stays the night at my apartment seven nights a week even though we don’t technically live together. Currently, he “lives” with his mom, which means he basically just goes to her place in the morning to shower and get dressed after spending the night at my place. He said he wants to eventually move in with me and get married but he feels like he needs to live on his own and “have his own physical space” before he moves in with me. Don’t you think if he really wanted to move out on his own he would’ve at some point? And surprisingly, he said if he did get his own place, he’d still want to spend every night with me! He said spending nights apart would feel like a step back in our relationship and he doesn’t want that. I am stumped as to his rationale behind all this. How do I deal with this situation or convince him that he doesn’t need his own physical space to feel like a man? (Also FYI: I’d rather be engaged first before moving in together, and he knows this, but given these circumstances it’s like we’re already living together, and he’s just not paying rent.) — Free Rent

Natalie Portman And Mila Kunis Smooch In The “Black Swan” Trailer

The trailer is out for Natalie Portman‘s new flick, “Black Swan,” about a prima ballerina coming completely unwound. Naturally, the moment in the trailer that has everyone talking is the Natalie and Mila Kunis kiss. We’re over that, but excited by how dark and twisted the flick looks. But should we be surprised? It’s directed by Darren Aronofsky, the man behind “The Wrestler” and “Requiem for a Dream.” The film will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 1st, and in theaters in December. Just in time for Christmas, to ruin any daydreams you might have had about the happy ballerinas in “The Nutcracker.” Keep reading »

Will You Take It All Off On Topless Saturday?

The right to bare … breasts? This Saturday marks the third annual “Go Topless” protest in which women are encouraged to take off their shirts and go topless in the name of gender equality. Held simultaneously in nine cities around the country — including Denver, Chicago and Miami — it aims to end shame around women’s bodies. The group’s founder and “spiritual leader” Maitreya Rael (yes of the cult The Raelians) says, “as long as men can be topless, constitutionally women should have the same right, or men should also be forced to wear something hiding their chest.”

The GoTopless group sees their cause as aligned with the fight for women’s suffrage and equality. They also “aim to help men differentiate between nudity and sexuality” by demystifying toplessness and rendering it normal. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Platonic Friend” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from Platonic Friend whose male best friend confided he was in love with her despite both of them being in relationships with other people. Platonic Friend explained to him how much she loved her boyfriend, but was sad that he seemed to be fading out of her life since his confession. I told her she should probably be relying on her boyfriend a bit more for male friendship and let this other guy figure out what’s going on with him and his girlfriend. Did she listen to my advice? Are they still friends? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
