Recently I sent out a tweet that got a fair amount of attention.
Gals, please remove that male eye candy from your Pinterest. Your husband is the man for you!
I don’t know how it slipped in there, but somehow it has become OK to pin hunky guys on Pinterest. But is that really wise?
I would be really put out if my husband started pinning gorgeous female actresses and models on his Pinterest boards (OK, so he doesn’t actually have an account, but if he did I’d be unhappy about the gals). I would wonder why he wanted to spend time looking at that standard of beauty and, honestly, I would be hurt that he seemed to value that kind of beauty (a beauty I don’t have, especially as I age). Being his wife, I want to be special to him. I’d like for him to appreciate my brand of beauty and grace.
I have to think that the effect is the same for the guys. It’s gotta hurt.
And, honestly, viewing a lot of something you don’t have tends to make you dissatisfied with what you do have. You know, that real man (with his own brand of gorgeous) that loves you and shares his life with you.
It’s a bad plan all around. So dump the showy hunks. Keep the real love of your life.

The Generous Husband: What is Overdue? While this may be a common thing for guys, it’s true of women too.
