There’s a guy at the [gay] club who I think likes me. But sometimes he says he’s “bi,” sometimes “just curious” and other times he’s says he’s “straight.” Yet he kissed me twice in the last four months when he was sober. What should I do?

Hey Daily Report,
First the bad news: even though he sounds like a fun, straight/bi-curious, undecided guy who enjoys your gay company, this really fits more into the “wasting your time” category than the “true life boyfriend” category. By constantly changing sexualities, he probably just wants to be liked and not break your heart. So now the good news, honey! Enjoy him as a friend. Even though catching a straight fish is exciting, a gay fish will stay longer and let you taste its meat.
My friend of three years and I became boyfriends a few months ago, but we’ve only had “weird” sex, twice. Oh yeah, he also just moved away, so I never see him anymore and when I do, he doesn’t seem interested. Does he still want me?
Dead Desires, Harrisburg, PA
Dearest Dead Desires,
Let me get this right. He moved away, you hardly see him and when you do he never wants to have sex. Not only is he not your boyfriend, but he’s not anything except an old friend you had bad sex with twice. So, to be point blank, it’s over, if it even started. Now, pumpkin, go find a new boyfriend who wants to please you…not tease you! Good luck!
My very “spiritual” boyfriend keeps pushing me to work less and appreciate life more. What am I supposed to do when I’m not working? Shop, surf the internet, watch TV? I like working. How else am I going to make money?

Hello Work vs. Life,
You are dead right and dead wrong. In order to be wealthy, you do have to work and work hard. I applaud you for that. However, have you heard of inner wealth? Well, baby, maybe it’s time! (You can have a whole bunch of cash or you can find much wealth in what you experience in life and those with whom you surround yourself. Can you say “Sat Nam?” Take a look at my cartoon to see how I manage it.)
My girlfriend is always late. It’s becoming a big problem, not for her as much as for me. Help!

Dear Late Date,
Waiting for someone once is awful, but waiting time and time again can make you loony. However, sweetie, there are alternatives, like:
Trinity’s Tough Tips For Dealing With Someone Who’s Always Late
1. Communication: Ask for a 30-minute warning before she’s actually due and/or another 10-minute warning before she actually arrives!
2. Lie: If dinner is 6 p.m., tell him 5:30 p.m. and never be ready before 5:45 p.m.
3. Warning: Let her know, if she wants to be late she just needs to call and tell you. She does not need an excuse!
4. No Excuses: Tell him no excuse is necessary. It’s about communicating his lateness before he’s late, not having good excuses after he’s arrived.
5. Acceptance: Just accept that she will often be late, and this is how it will be. Don’t act all upset and surprised every time!
6. Stay Busy: Always keep busy with things to do while waiting for a typically late person.
7. The Truth: Being late is not a crime, punishment or international offense. It’s just how some people are.
8. The Other Foot: Remember, if he’s always late, then you can always be late too and never feel bad.
9. Ending the Stress: It’s better for you to call and “check in” 15 minutes before she’s due than to wait angrily hoping she calls you.
10. Lastly, Attitude: Yes, you can make someone feel bad for being late, but after a few times you better accept it with open arms or…find someone else to put your arms around!
