- Wedding: September 2014
I’m sure we have all had one of these: your SO makes a joke at your expense that kind of bombs, and you’re pissed.
A couple of disclaimers:
-Yes, I’m sure this sounds petty.
-Yes, I know he was just joking.
-Yes, I’m like 3 days out from my period.
This morning, thinking I was being sexy, I sent Boyfriend or Best Friend a picture of my rear in some new drawers from good ol’ VS. I really have never been one for sending sexy pics, as they have a habit of making their way around if things go south. In addition, like any woman, I’m self-conscious about putting myself out there like that.
He texts back “that looks nice, are you sure it’s yours? lol just kidding.”
Wrong response. I wrote back “I’m sorry, what was the joke?” to which he responds “Because your butt looks nice, I asked you if you were sure it was yours you sent to me.”
I texted back “Right: trying to figure out how implying the butt you see every day doesnt always look like that is a funny joke.”
As you can probably deduce by me posting here, this has turned into a bit of a tiff: he thinks he’s hilarious and I’m stupid and I think that was a pretty arrogant response and poor attempt at humor.
This is EXACTLY how he acts at home when I try to be sexy, too: comes off unimpressed and makes some stupid joke that makes me feel as UNsexy as possible.
Help? Needless to say, I wont be sending any more pics of that subject matter.
