I’m curious what your thoughts are about fake women and how to protect yourself against them. We all know at least one, usually in high school but unfortunately even as grown women. Those women who say they are feminists or cheerlead to support other women when in reality, they are texting, calling, and meeting up with married men for their own selfish need for validation. Perhaps they had a failed marriage or unhealthy relationships with their children or parents that led to their own insecurities, and they need to use their shallow physical attributes to feel important or attractive. Maybe they have nothing positive in their own life to focus on so they obsess about an old flame who has long since moved on from the trainwreck of their relationship. What would you suggest we do to protect our marriage from the manipulative attempts to lure that married man from his otherwise happy home life. My instinct would be to confront the liar, but I don’t want to give her the false impression that she matters or make her feel flattered. It’s disgust not jealousy that I feel, but I also feel sorry for her and the disappointment she must have in her own life. While the world would be a better place if everyone respected boundaries, until these fake women learn their place, what suggestions do you have?
I look forward to your advice.
This is a hard question and an easy one at the same time. By fake women I assume you are referring to inauthenticity. Where insecurity inhabits, inauthenticity reigns. People are inauthentic because they fear if they show their real selves, they will not be liked.
