Sexting: Is everyone doing it?

A recent study at the University of Michigan revealed that sexting has “become a normal part of the dating process for young adults.” That means it’s not shocking, unexpected, or inappropriate for men and women aged 18-24. So our smartphones are now turned into xxx-phones, that apparently is a part of the wooing process, umm does this news bother anyone?

I wonder about the fine line between sexting responsibly – and sexting irresponsibly i.e. Congressman Weiner style.

When do you think it is appropriate to send a dirty text message or picture? Guys, if a woman sent one without you asking her first, would you judge her? What if you had just met her?

Do you think that there is a way to pull off sexting so that it intensifies the attraction instead of kills it?

Have you ever received a racy text or picture that you did not want?

Yes…Dr. Brit is a done deal. I never replied to his text about him being too flirty and I have moved on. I was only sad for about a minute about him!!!

@Leggs: Yes, I did know that. Same with grapes. The cherries at Whole Foods last week were amazing. I only bought a handful, because I knew I’d eat them all and have a tummyache.

At reg price, I usually do about a third…did that Saturday. I can’t eat too many either, unless I have a tummyache.

Now if they’re going for the low low, I do a whole pound

kimmie – re they all take care of their parents. you know the line “I don’t live with my momma, my momma lives with me”. lol.

the dating world needs women like bluz to thin out the population of no goods for the rest of us. they can take care of all the men they want as that keeps those same men from grinning up in my face. bluz – you got to pick a team girl.

Well that depends on the cherries. And who they’re attached to.

ITL…funny choice of song. I wasn’t drinking Jose, but I did make margaritas Sat night!

Leggs…I think I feel guilty because I wanted to do the “right” thing and not sleep with him. But…I can say that I’ve kind of wanted to for a while because he’s 6′3″ and a big boy (not fat, just big in stature) and I was curious if the package matched. It sure did!

Leggs…mom thought it was weird of Mr. Brit to say what he said, so she didn’t mind. She was a little bummed because she really thought he would have been good for me. I had to tell her to stop bringing him up because it really didn’t bother me. I wasn’t ready for him anyways…and he lives so far away.

“I think I feel guilty because I wanted to do the “right” thing and not sleep with him. But…I can say that I’ve kind of wanted to for a while” Naw, you didn’t want to do the right thing. Your mind may have told you that for a split second, but it was too powerful for you wanting him for quite some time to actually “do the right thing” with likka involved…no way and you knew it!

When I looked up “nutritional” information on cherries….after getting a tummy ache, the recommendation was about a cup a day. That’s about 20 or so cherries. I would say 25 at the most.

Leggs – That’s good. I think I read it to say too many means too much sugar. But I also read where if you’re having bouts of gout or arthristis, about 45 is good for that.

Bluz – Huh? Who is he that is so special you didn’t feel yourself ready or worthy for? I don’t care if he’s Prince Harry & lives in Buckingham Palace, he was playing games or at best just wasn’t interested. Period, point blank. Stop making these dudes more special in your mind than what their actions proved.

Hate to say this, but it’s all good NOW – because he thinks that he will get to tap that A again. Where it will get ugly is when either a) you want more than just sex or b) he has tapped it enough and he drops you like a hot pile of sh!t. Just my opinion from people I know who have gone through this before…
