    Honestly, this doesn’t sound like an addiction, it sounds like hes a pathological liar.

    It’s so hard for me to say. He really needs to see a specialist. Someone who can find the root of the addiction.

     

    There are ALOT of sex addictions out there. And it’s hard for people who DONT have a sexual addiction for them to even realize it’s a real thing.

     

     It’s very much like a silent illness. Most people will assume you’re full of shit because you LOOK fine.

    Either way, if you want this relationship to continue, I strongly suggest going to a counselor.

    Have you seen the show or movie Catfish? Seems like this is a growing problem…

    It sounds like he needs to address why he feels the need for that kind of attention whether it’s an addiciton or not. I don’t think the label is necessarily important, but it does sound like he needs professional help. I would definitely get him to go to counseling/therapy before marrying him.

    There’s no such thing as an addiction to sending people photos over Facebook. I call shenanigans.

    Cheating is seriously common at basic, even for people who have never done so before. My bet is on him shacking up.

     

    He sounds gross. I’d leave him.

    @innominate:  Ask yourself if you want to put up with the crap forever. Normal men don’t behave this way.

    Yikes. I would not marry this man until he went through some serious therapy. You shouldnt have to monitor your husband. I think you are setting yourself up for heartbreak.

    Sounds exactly like the movie Catfish. He sounds like a liar with extremely low self esteem. I would not marry him until he goes to therapy for THAT.
