Social Media Contact from Random People
Just asking you good people out there as I am more than puzzled by what my wife is telling me, and in total disbelief over the matter. We are in a struggling marriage currently which is a much longer story than what this is, but part of that is the use of social media and random people messaging.
I use social media little, barely have opened my facebook in over a year and have less than 10 family and friends on it, and I don't use any other media at all other than messaging apps, my choice and comfortable with it.
My wife uses a variety, I couldn't tell you them all as I have no idea what is on her phone, but she makes use of them and in general I have no concerns with that neither, what I do have thoughts over is how random people make contact, or at least how she is telling me it happens.
A number of times now she has told me how random guys have picture messaged her with shirtless photos and suggested how they should get together and how gorgeous she is from her profile picture, and it was suggested, perhaps me more gathering that this was over facebook, but I can't be sure. She tells me how she doesn't respond, but at other times, namely when drunk and angry, she tells me she has online friends she regularly talks to. The other thing to add here is that she is always taking and tweaking photos of herself, often in lingerie and in fact has them as her wallpaper on her phone which I have told her I find very odd, looking at yourself that way, but she says it is what makes her feel good about herself.
She has shown me pictures of younger fit guys that apparently have sent her photos, and she is telling me it is quite normal in this day and age, this is how people communicate, that it is common, and on top of that justifies it with things like saying they have good bodies and want to show them off, why shouldn't they?
Now I have asked around my friends and they have never come across it, so to the wider audience is it common, is it the way people communicate now and be so forward (in my opinion) but I also question what kind of sites is she on to be getting this kind of attention, I just can't believe it is Facebook. In fact the other night after she got drunk and we argued and she told me about some guy who is twice the man I am, and I invited her to go be with him then, and went to bed. I then heard her talking to some guy (I heard his voice on loudspeaker ) and I thought I heard her say that she had got naked to make the video call and why was he being so shy, but it was muffled and a short call and I didn't see or catch her in anyway by the time I got up.
So thoughts? Is it quite normal for guys to be sending random people their pictures, ladies do you get this at all? Personally I don't believe an ounce of it, but like to know more.
By the way she and I are in our 40's
