Default Showing your pictures to friends

Has anyone ever sent a penpal a picture of them, and then have them mention that they showed someone else?
I'm not really sure what to think about that...any advice?

Was it just a normal picture? Or something more intimate? If it was just a normal pic, I think it is probably normal behavior for him to show off his friends unless you requested him not too.

Communication is the key. If you want your pictures kept private, tell him. What is he consideres perfectly normal obviously isnt want you do.

They were just regular pictures...I'm not mad, I'm just wondering why.
You know, like is he showing them off, or is he making fun of them? lol
it's hard to know what he's thinking all the time

He was more then likely showing them off, That's what they tend to do, they are proud to have someone that cares.

well, if that is the case, then that makes me feel good

I was just wondering if anyone else had a penpal who did that...
I think it was just to his "best friend" but I don't know for sure.

My sweetheart does not show off pictures of me. They are in his cell. So when people come and visit him, they automatically ask who I am. So actually he doesn't go around the compound showing them off. Because he is very private when it comes to our relationship.

yes my PP showed my pics to those nearby,he is on DR and is seems quite common. I think they just like to tell the other guys that some one is out there for them. I only found out becuase he wrote that his neibour said I looked Irish what ever that means.
But no I wasn't mad it is just something they do, they are proud of us.

I think it just means that his neighbor thinks you look Irish...

I think it's normal to show pictures around. When I have friends around or I go visit them we forever looking at photos. It's like sharing your life. Why shouldn't they do this too. Sharing photos is also just a way to show you are proud of someone. To show other people that you have someone who cares. Don't we all have photos at home on the walls, for everyone to see who comes to visit? Isn't that just the same as showing them around? For me thats the most normal thing for someone to do.. unless of course they are really private photos.. but then again, those aren't photos you would pin on the wall either.

lol, no they were just pictures of me goofing off at Halloween, and semi formals, etc...

I guess it was more like WHEN would he be able to show him? You know, how? But I guess that's just cause I don't know much about prison...

Talking

well mine is not a pen pal, he was my man before he went. but it wouldn't bother me. one time i asked him would he ever show my pictures to his homeboys and he said not none of these! and he said they ask because he talks about me so much. but he said the ones i sent him was for HIS eyes only....i laughed and asked him did he want some decent ones so he can show off his woman...said yeah but i really ain't trying to let these horny mf's look at my girl then think about her later on ya know? but i wouldn't trip i think they all do that! so you know my vote was "i don't care and he's (more than likely) done it." it's only a picture not the real thing!

Talking I don't mind!

Well, he's not my pen-pal..he's my husband (boyfriend at the time of the arrest) and I've sent him numerous photos of myself...some a little more private . He shares the ones that are appropriate which I don't mind because I share pictures of him with my friends all the time. I like to show him off and I'm proud that he likes to do the same!

Okay, try to look at this in a different way. If your pen pal was free and you guys were friends or into a relationship - wouldnt you EXPECT to be introduced to his friends and people he hangs out with? If my man would refuse to let me see his friends Id think something is weird about that, that he is ashamed of me or something. So, now that you cant come by to meet all the guys, what else shall he do than show your picture? Hey, as long as its no nude or sexy pics...smile and relax! Just my 2 ct. TAKE CARE!!
