Two Sense: I Love You But Let's Not Say It 24/7

I’ve been seeing my boyfriend about six months, and he recently told me he loved me. I said it back, and I meant it. The trouble is that now he’s saying it a lot—like several times a day—and while I definitely love him, I don’t really want to say it that often. I have nothing against verbal affection, but I don’t like overusing “I love you” as a tonic for anxiety, boredom, awkwardness or just to fill space. And I feel like that’s what’s happening. When I say it, I want to deeply feel it, and I don’t want it to become commonplace and throwaway. But it’s totally weird to not say it back. Do I remain silent? Tell him how I feel? I don’t want to push him away.

Von Iva Backs Up Zooey Deschanel in Yes Man

You may recognize the sexy trio backing up blue-eyed indie-cutie Zooey Deschanel in this December's Jim Carrey comedy "Yes Man". It's San Francisco's own, Von Iva making their big screen debut and singing along Ms. Zooey in the fictional band Munchausen by Proxy. Von Iva also wrote the song "Yes Man" specifically for the film (it'll run over the end credits). This isn't the first time the ladies have contributed to a Hollywood production (see Showtime's The L Word or the 2008 Jerry O'Connell/Heather Graham movie Baby on Board), but it is the first time you can see them rocking the big screen. The film comes out December 19th.
