I wouldn’t like it all that much, I’d make damn sure he put a stop to it and fast. Not me doing it, but him.

@BrideToBe14:  Interesting. Never seen that section before!  

In my opinion, you can’t control others’ actions, only your responses. He should simply ignore the messages.

@BrideToBe14:  First, I would make him monitor it. It’s his linked in profile after all.  You might say he’s not good at the technology thing which makes sense– but then why does he need it for business? Also, even know I dont know exactly what your hsubamnd does for a living, pretty sure that people who actually want to connect for professional reasons just connect randomly or flirt. So I would say any of those people are not actually viable “clients”.

 

In sum, he should be in charge or cleaning out the trash(y women) but it should be cleaned out.

@BrideToBe14:  To me it is unacceptable, how does he respond to them ? I would tell him to cut them all off.

Hmm, if you are managing his Linkedin then you are the gatekeeper. DELETE!

I would also make his contact info less easy to find if you can. I would try to keep the point of contact through Linkedin messaging. 

I would also have a cconversation with my husband about the type of women he attracts and how it makes me feel. Mine would be open and receptive if I came to him with a concern he was not shutting down non-business convos with women quick enough. If the woman doesn’t build his network move on!

@MrsWBS:  I was wondering that as well.

Also, since when has Linked In been used as a flirt/dating site? I must be missing that part as my Linked In is the most. boring. thing. ever. A trashy chick with boobs sticking out would definitely spruce it up, lol.

@BrideToBe14:  In all seriousness, I am assuming these are all 1) internet strangers (your guy doesn’t know them in real life), and 2) unsolicited advances? If that’s the case, then I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Just delete any requests that don’t look like they would lead to career advances (i.e. Booby McBoobster can go) and don’t respond to the inappropriate messages. Eventually they will see that he’s all business and will get bored.

Do you guys have an upgraded profile? No one is able to message me unless they are in my network which is pretty small. Perhaps there is a way to filter out people who are not a part of his network in his privacy settings?
