I was just thinking about this the other day, when my wife got an unsolicited message from a stranger on instagram, on an account she’s barely active on.

It occurred to me that I have NEVER gotten a message like that. Not once. But she gets them regularly.

There’s an army of weird men out there who must be sending messages to every woman they find online in the hopes of…what, exactly? Some inappropriate chat? Some pics? I find it hard to believe it’s ever worked even once.

I don’t get it. I really don’t. But I’m sorry it’s something you have to deal with. Don’t let the wankers get you down.
