Wookin puh nub…
I’m writing you on this Valentine’s Day with a bit of cautionary advice. Amidst the sending of flowers, candies and cards, please refrain (lawd knows I’m serious) from sending shirtless and or pants-less pictures of yourself to someone via the Internet. Yes technology is amazing. You can do some great things with it. Including; make great mistakes. In fact, let’s go ahead and have you delete all of said photos from your cell phone. Yes, you nasty, I know you got’em in there.
You see, despite how sexy you think you are, you + nudity (even if partial) + the internet, equals personal and professional disaster. Sure it’s popular, it’s risqué, some may even say it’s erotic, but really- its all an #EPIC FAIL.
How many “respectable” people have fallen victim to the evils of cell phone/Internet exhibitionism? I lose count, but from Congressmen to preachers, athletes to actors, teachers to well, perverts. Nothing says “gross” like that picture of you, posed provocatively, cell phone in hand, in front of your bathroom mirror.
So whether you met her at Club Crunk or on Craigslist, save the skin showing until you’re actually together. If you still need a photo to reference, break out the Polaroid (avoid anything digital or that requires you to take film somewhere to be processed). Discretion is king. And just think of all the hours of enjoyment you will have with your nasty little pictures as opposed to the hours of stress you will surely endure from dodging the media, your boss or worse, your spouse.
