He wants you to text what?! Here's what to say to a sketchy request

 

My guy wants me to send him a picture of me in a bikini, but I don't think I feel comfortable with that. What should I do?

It’s pretty common to get flirty over text or Facebook chat when you’re getting to know a new guy. But if he starts asking for pictures of you bearing some skin, warning flags should go up. Will he save a pic of you onto his phone? Will he show his friends? Even if he says he won’t, you can never be sure. 

There are a lot of different ways to go about responding to his request. You can always make a joke out of it and quickly change the subject, but oftentimes it’s better to cut to the chase and to say what you’re really thinking. It is never wrong to say “You know, I really don’t feel comfortable doing that, so please don’t ask me again.”

It’s important that any guy you are interested in respects you and your body. If he continues asking, or gives you a hard time about saying no, it might be a good idea to think about what you really want from the relationship. Ask yourself: how well is this guy willing to treat me? Any good guy will appreciate your decision to say no, and if he doesn’t it’s perfectly OK to say buh-bye!
