Yesterday, I had an email from someone who is on my Facebook. I've never met him before (at least I don't think so), but I suppose he has seen photographs of my husband on my FB and blog.
I trust David, but man... did my heart stop when I read that email. Then I thought nah, it must be spam or a bad attachment that they want to trick people into opening. But as I scrolled down, I realised it wasn't an attachment that I had to open afterall, it was a picture that was pasted directly at the end of the email. So I scrolled all the way down.
He said in the email that it was urgent so I replied to him immediately, I can imagine his anguish. It's not my husband in that pic but I guess for him, it's still terrible news. Anyway, I'm not mad at this guy for sending me this scary email. Actually I'm thankful, cos if it were indeed my husband up to no good, I damn well wouldn't want to be kept in the dark. Then it occurred to me... oh poor thing, this guy had to snoop and then find out his GF is having jolly chats with other men on OK Cupid (which I assume is a dating website).
Some of you may say... chatting is not cheating, lah!. Yes, people in relationships can have friends of the other sex. But honestly, if you're in a relationship... is there really a need to go specifically looking to make new male acquaintances? I really don't get it.
If you're in a relationship and still fishing around in bars, or dating websites/apps then you're most definitely looking for something better to move on to or to cheat. That's my opinion. So if you catch your partner making 'friends' online (secretly behind your back) and they say that it's harmless, just to make friends. I call bullshit on that.
What do you think?
