Reader matter:

My boyfriend is actually 21 and I am 19. We came across through work and continue to work with each other. As soon as we are together, all of our connection is fantastic.

We were active with work and our life but made plans we would spend time. The guy went into a pal and remaining me clinging. I kept him an email stating that i did not appreciate him making midconversation.

Really don’t like getting the nagging the girlfriend, but this is not the 1st time he’s accomplished this. I inquired basically to be real his girl or some body away from convenience. The guy replied without concern, “however not, you may be my sweetheart.”

Why does the guy keep making me personally dangling instead of downright cancelling our ideas? Is he merely opting mature women looking for sex his me/guy time, or perhaps is he leaning toward a breakup?

Dr. Wendy Walsh’s response:

Relationships are a mutual change of attention. Leaving you “hanging” isn’t providing you the attention or regard you have earned. Speak to him about his behavior. End up being obvious you won’t continue to tolerate their flaky inconsistency, once the guy will it once more, break up with him.

You may be younger and could n’t have skilled the love of a caring, dependable boyfriend. That type of man is offered while are obligated to pay it to yourself to make your self accessible to him.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
