Embarrassed girlfriend

Dear Queenie,

  My boyfriend always wears his shirt open to the waist. He has a very hairy chest and sometimes when we’re in public people notice it and whisper and even point at him.

  I find this embarrassing and I mentioned it to him but he said it was no big deal.

  Queenie, what do you say?—Embarrassed girlfriend  

Dear Girlfriend,

  Point out to your boyfriend that when people point at him and whisper about him, they are not paying him any compliments. Tell him how embarrassed you are by all this and ask him to button up his shirt in public for your sake if not his own.
