OPP: My Sister’s Social Media Pictures Are Going to Ruin her Life
Every week, we feature one of our listener letters for our OPP (Other People's Problems). This week, a sibling is frustrated after their sister began posting bikini photos on dating sites after a recent divorce. Does being in a small town make this inappropriate? Does this prevent you from finding a good partner? Should you even be dating this early after a divorce? Read the letter below and share your thoughts with us in the comment section below, on our Facebook, or by texting us at (208) 376-5106.
I am upset with my sister for using poor judgment. She recently got divorced and is now posting pictures all over the Internet. She is in shape with a great body, but that doesn't mean she needs to be posting bikini pictures on Plenty of Fish, Match.com, and Instagram.
We argued about this the other night, and it got very heated. I tried to explain to her that the pictures are inappropriate because people in our community are going to see them. She has two little girls and I'm sure she won't want them looking up the pictures in the future when they are older.
I understand that being recently divorced, she wants to feel desirable again, but this is absolutely not the right way to go about it. If our mother was still alive, it would be her putting an end to this foolishness...but since she's gone, it's my job to get her to see the error of her way. How do I stop her from damaging her reputation and eventually regretting what she did?
