Unhappy SEXTING - December 28th 2012, 08:39 PM

I know what im about to write is disgusting and I know your gonna think i'm a right idiot for doing such a terrible thing.

It all started in January this year, i went on a public chat room for the first time, then this lads name popped up and i started talking to him online he seemed really nice and i speak to him to the present day.

He then wanted some sexy pics of me, which i very stupidly took and sent. This then later started leading me to go o chat rooms more and more and send out more pics of my self. i only stopped doing it 1 week ago, now all i feel is guilt for being so stupid. it's like i cant forget about it.

95% of the pictures i sent didn't have my face in which is lucky. What do you think the chances are that these guys still have the pics? these guys most always be chatting up girls and getting pics whats the point of keeping mine.

Even if they do go online i'm gonna look different in a few years time. I know what i did was stupid and disgusting but i need some advice and quick. i know we all make mistakes and im a idiot for making this one , but please dont give me a lecture i really need some advice .

Honestly, I'd say there's a moderately high chance of them still having it. Guys that ask for shit like that are usually pigs, so what's the point of deleting it?

We all do things like this we regret and this is how we learn. It's okay. I don't think they'll still have the pics. They sound like players, no offense. Not having your face in them is smart. That's a really good thing so I wouldn't really worry about it.

I also did that same thing. I stopped about 2 weeks ago, but I ended up sending pictures to about 4 guys. I tell myself every night that they don't have the pictures still, even though I'm not sure if they do or not. Telling myself that they don't have them kinda calms my thoughts. It's a really good thing that you realized what you did was wrong, and not having your face in the photos helps A LOT! If you wanna talk about it, feel free to message me!

First things first: work on forgiving yourself! Did you make a mistake? Yes. Is it worth being miserable about for the rest of your life? No! The important thing is that you've turned over a new leaf and aren't going to sext strange men anymore... so cut yourself some slack.

Like Maloo said, I think it would be a bit unrealistic to hope every single one of these men deleted your picture. Some of these men may look at your picture on a regular basis. Other men may have your picture saved somewhere, but rarely (or never) look at it. You'll never know, and you'll never be able to take those pictures back... so accept the situation for what it is, and move on.

As stated above, you've turned over a new leaf, and that's what's important. Yes, these men will potentially have your picture for the rest of your life... but what are the long-term consequences for you? If you can't be identified, then your reputation can't be hurt. The only person who has to live with this knowledge is yourself... and the only person who can suffer from this knowledge is yourself... so ultimately, it's up to you to forgive yourself.

Don't be mad at yourself, you made a mistake & you can't undo it so the only thing you can really do is forgive yourself. I've done this before too, not in chatrooms, but with guys I knew in RL. guys I barely knew..they asked me for pictures & I'd just give them. They gave me attention I never had & I loved that..it made me feel wanted. I felt guilty too, but eventually I forgave myself because theres nothing else you can really do. Don't beat yourself up over it, it's just another mistake to learn from.

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

life is about living and learning
there still is a high chance the guys have the pictures but they probably have at least 15 other chicks pictures too, so don't worry.
as long as your face isn't in any pictures and that you don't know them or have them as a contact on any social media site that also has your friends in real life on then you're fine
and it's not disgusting xx It's begging for someone else's approval and acceptance, I know what it's like PM me anytime x

I agree with Kamrin. What she said is definitely true. Every mistake you make, you learn from. What's important is to learn to forgive yourself.
