    So, I have this problem.

    I love staying at my girlfriend's apartment. It's a fabulous place, right downtown, next to everything, walking distance to several great bars, parks, sports venues, etc... My stuff is still at my place, but we stay at her place more than mine.

    But her roommate has this new boyfriend she met at the gym, and the guy is always here. I think he pretty much officially moved in. The problem is he NEVER WEARS A SHIRT! EVER! He's a quiet guy, and a nice guy, so there's no issue there. He spends entirely too much time watching UFC and all that nonsense, but lots of guys do that. And he brought his XBox 360 over, so he gets bonus points for that.

    But he never, ever wears a shirt, and it's starting to make me and my girlfriend feel a tad uncomfortable. I want to tell him, "OK, I get it, you're a trainer at the gym. Your muscles are huge. But can you at least wear tanktops or something?" But since that's just a weird thing for one dude to say to another dude, I'm thinking about also NEVER wearing a shirt when I'm at her place. Now, my muscles aren't the same size they were when I was a high school/AAU baseball player, but I'm young, 6-foot-1 and not hideously out of shape.

    Thoughts? Other fun suggestions/solutions?

    I'll be right there to take care of the problem.

    Your g/f should ask her roommate to have him wear a shirt b/c it's making the two of you uncomfy. Either that or you should start walking around with your pants off.

    I already do that. Some people look at me funny, but fuck it, I live in the South. It's hot and humid in the summer.

    I just can't help but think this guy is trying to mark his territory in a primal way by going shirtless. I think I should pee somewhere in the living room in retaliation.

    He is a good-looking guy. A little short, though. Is that a problem for you?

    I think it should be up to your girlfriend to broach the subject with her roommate.

    Perhaps the guy's shirtlessness is in retaliation for your pantslessness.

    I'm not sure he can spell. I'll investigate and let you know.

    why does it make you feel that uncomfortable?

    Good question. I don't know. I guess I've never seen a man walk around shirtless all day, every day. Some visitors have made remarks, too (privately, of course), so maybe that's added to it.
