We live in a shared flat with 2 other girls and a guy. My boyfriend is always walking around in his underpants. It makes me a bit uncomfortable when I go into the kitchen and he is stood there in his pants, everything on show, talking to the other girls. I always tell him to put some shorts on but he still does it. Am I being silly?

Less weird if guys but I think that's a bit weird if you have 2 other girls tbh. Have you asked him about it?

Anybody in a flatshare have flatmates who walk around like this? Do you have flat rules on minimum dress for walking about?

My housemate does it, I think it's fine if you have that sort of nothing-but-platonic relationship that housemates often have

I mean at least you can tell if he's into the other girls or not right?

A couple of my male flatmates walk around in their boxers most the time, one of them has a girlfriend and she doesn't mind it as she knows I and the other girl in the house are completely platonic with him and she trusts him. I sometimes walk around the house in my underwear too, it just means he's comfortable with himself and around his flatmates. Nothing wring with that. If it makes you uncomfortable, explain to him why.

Tell him you're uncomfortable but don't accuse him of anything. Suggest a solution but don't be surprised if he finds it a little silly, which it is. Most guys with half a brain know not to try and hit on their girlfriend's housemates.

It'd be better if he at least wore boxers or put some shorts on. That's acceptable I think

Boxers are pretty much the same as pants.

Right I see, I don't know anyone who weird briefs so that in itself I would find odd just because they're more seen as children's underwear. But obviously his choice in underwear is fine

Even still I myself wouldn't find it weird, but if you find it weird and uncomfortable explain to him WHY.

Have any of your flatmates ever commented/complained about him doing this?

no, they never complained to me, they're used to him in his underpants by now.

boxers would be more acceptable for walking around in but I don't think pants are that unusual or weird on a guy

I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's surprisingly normal during student life to spend half of your time either in pyjamas or underwear.

Maybe I'll get him some pyjamas, they'd be more suitable than underpants!
