Shortcuts: “He Won’t Put My Picture on His Facebook Page”

FacebookIt’s time again for Shortcuts. For every question I’ll give my advice in just a few sentences because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great that being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go.

I have asked my boyfriend to put my pictures on his Facebook page, but he keeps telling me that I’m nagging him and controlling him and that he doesn’t think we have a future together, so should I MOA or what? — LW 1

 
Yes.

My girlfriend and I have been together a year and four months. A while ago, I was stupid and cheated on her with her friend. Thank god she forgave me. But we both made a deal to not talk to the friend ever again. Also, a while ago we broke up and she didn’t wanna talk to me, so, to push me away, she told me she was in love with this other guy. We got back together later, and he told me she didn’t really love him but she was just saying that to keep me away. She’s best friends with him and once she lied to me to go meet him. I know nothing happened, but he’s always texting her and I know he likes her. I told her that, since she was uncomfortable with me talking to the girl I cheated on her with, she shouldn’t talk to this guy since I’m uncomfortable with it. What do you think? — Uncomfortable with her friend

 
I think that, because you have one cheating mistake, an unrelated breakup, and distrust on both sides to the point of saying whom you can and cannot talk to, it’s time to cut your losses and MOA.

My boyfriend and I have been together since June 5th. Back some time around the beginning of December we had a some people over. One of them was a tattoo artist so he had three women come over with him. Anyway, my boyfriend came onto one of them while I was standing in our kitchen watching. He had no idea that I was even standing there. It still bothers me to this day, but any time I bring up the subject he just says that he didn’t do it and doesn’t want to talk about it. He was intoxicated, but that still doesn’t make it right. I don’t know what to do about this. I can’t even get him to answer why he would flirt with another woman if he’s as happy as he says he is, not to mention why he would do it in front of me…especially in our apartment. — No More Flirting in My Kitchen

 
Do tattoo artists always have entourages of women they travel with? You said it like it was a matter of fact: “He’s a tattoo artist, so yeah, naturally, he had three women with him.” Also, you met in June and were already living together six months later? You move fast! Also: what is it that you want your boyfriend to tell you? If you saw what you saw, it’s not like you need him to confirm it for you, right? You know what you saw! If you’re looking for a reason as to why your boyfriend would flirt with another woman, here you go: because he was attracted to her and felt like it and wasn’t thinking about you. Now, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

All of my tattoo artists have been married. I’ve never seen them with an entourage, so I have no idea what that’s about!!

I have nothing to add to these letters, other than I’ve been up since 3 this morning to take my roommate to the airport, then I continued driving for a couple of hours to get to my parents house, where I’m spending the next three days because it’s my dad’s birthday. Anyways, I’m bored, who want to be my friend today?

Have you ever seen the tattoo show “Bad Ink”? I want to be THOSE tattoo artists. They are hilarious. One of them is a soccer dad to two adorable little girls, and the other one has an ugly puppy that he hauls around. Somebody who gets a tattoo will be all, “You wanna go to a party later?” and they’ll be like, “Nahhh, man, My little girls are hosting a sleepover. Can’t miss it”

avatar Morgan February 14, 2014, 9:57 am

Maybe that was the entourage of women? It was the tattoo artist, his wife, and their two daughters. You boyfriend didn’t hit on a four year old, did he, LW? Because that’s a pretty big detail to leave out.

dabbler dabbler February 14, 2014, 10:23 am

haa, ruckus!

avatar Ella_ February 14, 2014, 9:37 am

LW 1: It must be because your boyfriend has a secret family so if he posts your photo on his page, his wife will find out and bust him.

LW 2: I think it is true love! Might as well get rid of your phones and only have two way radios so you can only contact each other because true love means being suspicious of all your SO’s friends of the opposite sex.

LW 3: Was the tattoo artist giving someone a tattoo at your apartment? Were the women his assistants? How do all those people fit in your kitchen?

GatorGirl GatorGirl February 14, 2014, 9:39 am

I wonder what the percentage of DW letters involve FB issues. It seems like an awful lot.

I’m super excited to get a boyfriend. Because when it finally happens, I can’t wait to use the word boyfriend. And the moment he becomes my boyfriend, his facebook profile picture and his cover photo MUST be a picture of me. Also, my boyfriend better change his facebook status to in a relationship IMMEDIATELY! Then, a couple weeks after he becomes my boyfriend, he won’t be allowed to speak to any other female ever. I will cease communication with all males. Hmm, maybe we’ll never leave the house. And forget about inviting anyone over. Especially tattoo artists. Who knows what kind of women they’ll bring. Boy, I can’t wait. Sounds like so much fun.

TOTALLY unrelated – what ever ended up happening with your Colorado boy?

avatar ktfran February 14, 2014, 2:00 pm

Ooh, that fizzled. Unfortunately. We saw each other the weekend before Christmas. We texted a bit on Christmas and New Year’s. He sent a happy birthday text exactly a month ago, on my birthday. But nothing in between. After the holiday visit, I pretty much knew it was over, and I was going to tell him as much. But he never called again. And I didn’t call him. But what do I say, “hey, you don’t contact me anymore so it’s over?”. Because before, he would at least call every week.

Idk. I’m pretty devastated. Especially since I know if things were different, i.e., he hadn’t move, we would be dating. I’ll get over it though. Now on to the next unsuspecting lad.

LW 2: I feel like I just read a pitched idea for a gossip girl episode. Your names wouldn’t happen to be Nate, Serena, Blair, and Chuck would they? MOA.

LW3: What?

Stonegypsy Stonegypsy February 14, 2014, 10:05 am

All of the tattoo artists I’ve ever met have a minimum of three women with them at all times. It makes it really complicated when I invite them for dinner.

honeybeenicki honeybeenicki February 14, 2014, 11:37 am

I have the same problem. And if I try to invite more than one tattoo artist for dinner at a time, I end up feeding like 40 people. Because the tattoo artists have tattoo artist friends and they all have their 3-minimum entourage. My dining room table only seats 6 or 8 if we use the extender leaf, so I end up having to set up tiny tables throughout the entire house.

Stonegypsy Stonegypsy February 14, 2014, 11:42 am

I know! And I never have enough food for all of them. And I really only have so many plates. And my husband has such a hard time deciding which member of which entourage he wants to come on to, which is very stressful for him.

honeybeenicki honeybeenicki February 14, 2014, 11:58 am

We always run out of food, but thankfully a lot of the entourage members don’t eat, so that saves a little bit. We bought stock in a paper plate company to ensure there are always enough dishes, but it’s weird serving certain things on paper plates (lasagna, filet mignon, etc). My husband usually comes on to groups of entourage members in shifts. It makes it a lot less stressful and eaiser to keep track of.

Stonegypsy Stonegypsy February 14, 2014, 12:05 pm

Those are such good ideas! You know, I tend to just make up big batches of soup anymore, since it’s so easy to serve a lot of people that way. I should just buy a closet-full of those really good quality paper bowls.
I’m definitely going to bring up the shifts idea up to my husband. That’s going to make things so much easier.

shanshantastic stabstabtastic February 14, 2014, 12:24 pm

Slow cooker potato soup and some Chinet bowls are the way to go. You should also stock up on plenty of plastic spoons (seriously, those big boxes last FOREVER – I think they self-regenerate). I think I would even skip tables, just maybe set up some small tray tables to set down drinks.

And now I want to host a tattoo party just to see how my husband would come on to the entourages. What a great experiment. (But really I just want some soup.)

honeybeenicki honeybeenicki February 14, 2014, 12:43 pm

Soup! I can’t believe I never even thought of that. It would be very quick and easy. And the chinet bowls would be perfect. I agree that not even providing tables would help. Thank goodness I’m on DW – all of my troubles can be resolved here. As far as the drinks, is that something I should provide or should it be a BYOB type thing? I guess I can provide tap water. That’s what I usually do. But water gets expensive around here.

Stonegypsy Stonegypsy February 14, 2014, 12:53 pm

I always make them bring their own booze, but then I end up with PBR in my fridge for weeks and it makes me sad. Why can’t they drink GOOD beer?

LW3 – I am a married woman and my husband still flirts with waitresses, cashiers and sometimes our friends. And I flirt sometimes with his friends who are flirting with me. It is just silly talk. It means nothing at all and we know it. Maybe you are just taking him talking to another woman a little too seriously?

deathany deathany February 14, 2014, 10:28 am

My parents have been married for 40 years and my dad still flirts with waitresses. I think my mom gets a kick out of it.

othy othy February 14, 2014, 10:51 am

Well, it’s not like your husband is flirting with tattoo artist entourages. That’s way worse than flirting with waitresses.

lemongrass lemongrass February 14, 2014, 10:41 am

Can I just say that if you feel the need to say “I know they didn’t cheat” or “I know they would never do X” it is a red flag.

bittergaymark Bittergaymark February 14, 2014, 11:42 am

1) I dunno. How long have you been dating. Your letter is so vague and childlike. If it is truly a REAL relationship of many months? Yes. MOA. If you are only together a few weeks? You are being pretty fucking stupid, desperate, and pathetic.

2) REALLY get back at her by seducing this hot and obviously hunky male friend/stud of hers. Send me an mp4 of said encounter.

3) Tattoo artist? Artist? Tattoo? Talk about an oxymoron.

OK, this is eerie… I first came on to M at a party… in the kitchen… and she stood there and watched the whole time, even during the kiss. No, wait, it’s not the same, is it?

True Valentine story: mere seconds after our first kiss, which was in a kitchen at a party, before we had even pulled our faces apart, another woman came up and hit on the both of us. I mean, like, she got right close and tried to kiss us both at the same time. I’ll admit it, I froze. I was so entrenched at the time with this strategy of “one girl would be better than no girls,” that a three way had not even occurred to me. I don’t think M woulda done it, though, demure thing, so I suppose my shock played well into the overall longterm monogamy scenario that has worked out quite well. I know that doesn’t sound romantic, but I assure you, the naughty version is in my mind. M’s coming home tonight after 4 days out of town. Steak and shrimp. One girl is actually pretty good. HULK LIKE MONOGAMY.

bittergaymark Bittergaymark February 14, 2014, 11:53 am

Straight guys are always so obsessed with the apparently forever forbidden fruit of threeways. Gay guys? Eh, we just go out and actually have fourways… ;)

Diablo Diablo February 14, 2014, 12:04 pm

To be fair, Mark, everybody is kind of obsessed with everything. I know I am. It’s all forbidden fruit for most of us not because of some point of view, but just because most of us have a big enough challenge finding one person to be with. These things simply never happened to me.

For the sleek, glamourous LA types such as yourself, it’s a brave new world. I’m sure your fourway man action is beautiful and sweaty. For myself, I actually have no complaints. My girl is so sweet, it’s actually like corrupting an innocent every time. True kink is in the mind. Especially of old marrieds.

bittergaymark Bittergaymark February 14, 2014, 12:28 pm

Strangely, my fourway was decades ago and in the rather unlikely state of Arizona. College. Freshman year. With my first male lover/NON-boyfriend who I was hopelessly in love with and who was hopelessly in love with me. Still, we couldn’t be boyfriends! GASP! God no! We were just… Um… Uh… Experimenting! (Hey, it was 1989…)

Anyway, the fourway happened when we went away with his best friend and his very own nonboyfriend to a condo up in Flagstaff. Mountain air. Hot tub. Vodka. Four hot closeted fraternity guys… What can I say? Sometimes you come out of the closet with a real bang. Sometimes, its condoa gangbang.

Addie Pray Addie Pray February 14, 2014, 12:31 pm

True story: After Colin and I had been dating about 6 months my mom facebook stalked him (most of his page is private so I think she could only see profile pics) and called me legitimately concerned that he didn’t like me very much because there were no pictures of me on his page, and she was concerned he was trying to hide me. Crazy does not fall far from the tree.

theattack theattack February 14, 2014, 12:55 pm

Haha, of course it couldn’t possibly be a typo!

The other day my mom was telling me about how she’s going to switch to email communication to arrange the next family reunion, because she was tired of typing out the exact same messages on facebook.

My brothers and I had to explain to her why she doesn’t need to sign all her posts and there is no character limit on FB so she can type her words out in full. She doesn’t sign them anymore, but she was genuinely confused about why she shouldn’t. And she still does the text message circa 2005 abbreviation thing.

Am I the only one who sees this as a travesty of justice?!

It’s not me AP. I only did it once that first day. Now it’s pretty mean!

Just just thumbs-downed all my own posts on this thread so you don’t feel alone.

Dear AP’s down-thumber: cut it out! It’s old now.

Addie I am literally searching for all of your comments just to thumbs them up. I am clearly way too invested in this. I’m (hopefully) not creepy though!

My otherwise lovely boyfriend had a picture of him and his ex-girlfriend as his Facebook profile for the first couple months that he and I were exclusively/seriously dating (and he’s on facebook a lot, it’s not like he forgot). I pretended to be cool but secretly was not cool, because I mean come on. And he STILL after several years has never put me in his profile. Finally, after like maybe two drunken fits I threw that did not have the desired effect, I was like, “OK, I’m leaving this topic, but if you don’t at least put me in your profile picture on the day we get engaged, the engagement is off.” He laughed and agreed, but he apparently intends to wait until that exact moment.

I dare anyone here to tell me they’d be 100% cool about this. :)

Totally unrelated, but remember how I posted that forum topic where I was sad because someone I didn’t like posted something mean on my tumblr and I was going to just start a new one and hope she never found me again and then you guys gave the best advice ever, and I didn’t? I’m so glad I did’t because one of my drawings got featured on the MadewithPaper blog and I wouldn’t have known if I abandoned my original tumblr! So yay!!
