Is this pic strange?

Many years ago, after I first met my husband he went holiday to Ibiza with a group of friends. One of the pics taken at that time was with his female hometown friend and he was standing with her puting his hand on her waist. Is this anything strange?

OP, has anything interesting happened in the intervening 7 years since the picture was taken?

I mean, anything at all? Not just to do with the friend from the "hometown"? I take it that both you and your husband have been out of the house since then?

This is priceless

OP, please post more often

What I want to know is, is the woman in the photograph named "Sharon"?

well, assuming she lives in the UK and with her English H (I may be wrong here) she would have picked how humour and sarcasm are expressed. Tbh I think that OP personally lacks any sense of humour, as most immigrants with English husbands would be conversant!
As to the touching culture - yes, agree. She sort of accepted that ut's fine, but then started questioning left/right coments in all seriousness - come on, no one's English is that bad, if they can write/spell!

MrsMinkBernardLundy Sun 01-Sep-13 23:50:57

OP are you happy with your husband?

Gruntfuttock Sun 01-Sep-13 23:42:56

Beagles, nationality can be relevant in so far as what is considered acceptable and normal behaviour between the sexes and also recognising humorous and/or sarcastic replies as what they are. That was why I asked.

beaglesaresweet Sun 01-Sep-13 23:29:40

I really don't think that OP's NATIONALITY matters here! People of foreign origin can have a sense of humour, Coffee, and read the posts as they are intended, you know. Obviously OP may be very new to English language, but the main point is, she is unhealthily, seriously anxious (or both).

Gruntfuttock Sun 01-Sep-13 23:15:56

Where are you from, OP?

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 23:08:02

My husband is English.

Coffeenowplease Sun 01-Sep-13 22:57:04

Ok that might explain why your posts read a little oddly.
You do seem very anxious - is that what you re seeing a therapist for ?

Just wondering are you and your husband from different countries/cultures ?

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 22:52:17

Coffeenowplease, I dont have mental health issues and I'm not English.

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 22:51:09

LEMisdisappointed, I am going to see a counsellor to talk about this pic and anxiety

Coffeenowplease Sun 01-Sep-13 22:43:07

Also are you English ?

Coffeenowplease Sun 01-Sep-13 22:37:11

OP

do you have any erm mental health issues ?
Because your posts seem..well odd to be honest.

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 22:27:35

HeySoulSister, why is it interesting they are still friends? He has many tometown male and female friends who are all long term friends and she is one of them.

LEMisdisappointed Sun 01-Sep-13 22:05:30

OP, are you feeling quite well?

May i ask why you are seeing a counsellor on tuesday?

i see a counsellor due to anxiety and depression, sometimes i can have quite warped ideas about things and am very insecure.

123bucklemyshoe Sun 01-Sep-13 21:37:30

If this is all you have to worry about then you should count your blessings and get on with your life....

firesidechat Sun 01-Sep-13 21:27:29

Actually scrap that mamma. I have just read the up to date posts and the OP doesn't seem remotely upset with the posts which ridicule her slightly. I seem to be annoyed on her behalf for no good reason.

firesidechat Sun 01-Sep-13 21:22:50

mammadiggingdeep it may be best not to add fuel to the fire with this one. Either the OP is winding us up or she has very consistent issues with her husband. Issues that stem from her anxiety and not anything that he has actually done. If it is real then I think she needs as much help as she can get and probably in real life rather than on MN.

OP I think that I have previously suggested that you mention your anxiety before asking about another problem. If these are real situations then it would maybe help to stop all the "this can't be real" posts.

Are these threads even helping you OP?

CookieDoughKid Sun 01-Sep-13 20:59:18

OP.. you need to seek some professional help. You don't read OK to me.

Oh really? I didnt know it was a joke. Thank you for letting me know. I tend to believe as it says.

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 20:50:11

I wish I could show you the pic but the counsellor will see it.

HeySoulSister Sun 01-Sep-13 20:49:54

stop looking at the photo.....you must know the left side/right side thing was a JOKE!!!

wherewouldyoulive Sun 01-Sep-13 20:48:23

Gruntfuttock, why right hand side is ok and left hand side isnt? I'm looking at the photo again and his hand was where the bone starts which is just below waist.
