Tell your wife to stop sexting me

Your wife calls me her “gay best friend” because I’m the guy who listens to her problems, who is wise enough to notice she’s pretty. I'm the guy who makes her feel human.  Any of that sound familiar?  Yeah, it’s because it’s what you signed up for. It’s YOUR job to make her feel like the beautiful woman she is--a job you decided wasn’t worth putting time into.  But this isn’t like the summer job you took at Taco Bell. You agreed to work at your marriage until the end.

What is it about new technology that is turning people into electronic exhibitionists?  If you have kids, you've seen the news reports about “sexting,” the practice of texting nude pictures. Sexting has been getting a lot of fairly innocent adults AND teenagers in all sorts of trouble.  And I’m not just talking about your wife sending me illicit photos.  Lots of girls are posting pictures in their public blogs alongside their Harry Potter fan fiction and lolcatz addictions. Is this what sex and love has come to?

So if you’re a man with a good lady who’ll stand beside him through all his bullshit, I suggest you check yourself.  Your wife/girlfriend will not be content sitting idly by just hoping you’ll give her what she deserves.  She’s going to find someone to adore her.  And if the guy she finds isn’t the stand-up kind of guy that I am, he’s going to take advantage of your mistake.  So tell your wife to stop sending me naked pictures. Please, because she is pretty hot, and soon I might get the wrong idea, and then maybe I won't be such a stand-up guy.

Are you a dude?  Are you a married dude?  Then pay attention. For far too long you’ve let your wife, your life partner, your everything, sit alone on the sidelines. Well it's time to wake your ass up and get your head back in the game—the game of being in a good relationship. You can start by telling your wife to stop sending me naked pictures of herself.
