Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:

“The Beauty Of Not Sleeping Together” [via Refinery29]

“Can We Stop Saying Tinder Is Good for Women Now?” [via NY Mag]

“Men really need to stop calling women crazy” [via Washington Post]

Ethan Hawke has partnered with my favorite filmmaker, Richard Linklater, again in a new movie called Boyhood, which was shot over 12 years. Maybe a little reminiscent of the documentary series “7-Up,” which I know some of you are fans of. Thought you would be interested in these related articles:

“Ethan Hawke on Divorce, Mortality and Being the Guy in the Minivan” [via New York Observer]

Thank you to those who submitted links for me to include. If you see something around the web you think DW readers would appreciate, please send me a link to wendy@dearwendy.com and if it’s a fit, I’ll include it in Friday’s round-up. Thanks!

    The sleeping apart article is really interesting. I don’t sleep a whole lot (usually no more than a total of 4-5 hours, rarely consecutively) and I’ve been that way for years. When I’m extra fidgety at night, I go to a different room of the house. But… I hate sleeping without my husband. I had plenty of practice with it and I didn’t like it one bit. But I’m happy people are comfortable doing what works for them. Sleep is so important to… well, everything. I don’t sleep, he sleeps through everything. Works well for us.

    Very late to reading these links, but oh oh oh I want to see Boyhood. I hadn’t heard of it but the premise sounds interesting, and I’m a huge fan of the 7 Up series – and of the Before Sunset trilogy.
