Bisexual man inadvertently responds to his father-in-law''s craigslist men seeking men post

Q. Bi Man Unintentionally Opens Can of Worms With In-Laws: I have a rather unusual problem, and I don't feel I have anywhere to turn but you. I'm a 33-year-old man who's been married for seven years. The issue is, I am bi-sexual and have known so for quite some time. My quandary is, about a month ago I responded to a posting on Craigslist.

It was from an older gentleman who, like myself, is bi and was looking for some discrete fun. In responding to the ad, I sent a faceless/headless picture of myself without a shirt on. He responded back to me with some pictures that were a bit more graphic and a phone number. Upon seeing the number, I became immediately undone. It was the cell phone number of my wife's dad%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%94my father-in-law!

Once I realized it was him, I never responded back to him. I received several e-mails subsequently asking me what was going on and if I was still interested. However, not only did he e-mail me from his personal e-mail address, stupidly, he used the joint one with my mother-in-law.

Fast-forward a few weeks. My mother-in-law was checking e-mail and somehow found the exchange between my father-in-law and myself. Obviously, and justifiably, she has become hysterical. She found the e-mail that I sent to him (from an anonymous e-mail address) that had my picture.

It gets worse; she told my wife and her sister and brother, and they are trying to figure out who this guy is who "seduced" dad. At this point, I am freaking out as my wife is wanting to see my picture, but her mother has not shown it to her yet.

Do I bite the bullet and let the cat out of the bag that I am the two-home home wrecker, or should I let my wife and in-laws continue to play detective? I feel such guilt as my wife cries on my shoulder as she tells me the latest developments every day.

bisexuals are a menace

Remember the SNL scetch, "The Girl With No Gaydar"?%0D %0D The one that ended with "...then what's my father doing here?"?

The EST: not strictly a DataLounge phenomenon, then.

Methinks "Prudie" has fallen for one hell of a good EST.

That has Tina Fey written all over it, R3.

This is such an obvious EST. How did Slate fall for it?

Oh, dear.

As if anyone but a GAY man would EVER utter this phrase.

And I thought Christmas was fucked up at my family's.....

I guess it could happen in a smaller town - some smaller cities have their own CL.

This reminds me of that writer from back east who threw his wife down the stairs after she found out about his gay trysts. %0D %0D I loved the trystee when he was on the stand. %0D %0D What do you do? %0D Oh just anything you want. %0D %0D He was kind of cute.

by Anonymousreply 1208/02/2010

Bi is no excuse for infidelity or exposing (condoms are 100%) your spouse to god knows what. I'm bisexual, no one makes you get married. He said those vows, he could've very well remained single and date who he wants. He wants the little wife at him, while he indulges himself. He probably wouldn't even have been interested in a bi woman who'd want to have an open relationship.

Beware of the faceless/headless picture, it will always lead to folderol and fiddle dee dee.

I think if you can't even spell "discreet," CL should ban you till you learn.

by Anonymousreply 1808/03/2010

The author of that letter should take a lesson in trolling from the author of DL's infamous classic "I had sex with my FIL" from a few years ago. Talk about learning at the feet of the master.%0D %0D The troll even had his own stalker troll, the idiot "114 and Rochelle."%0D %0D

Sad thing is I've been corrected for spelling "discreet". Some idiot responded "I think you meant 'discrete'". Argh!

Married 'bisexual' men looking for gay sex = closeted gays.

But is the FIL hawt???

I love how he's being discrete by asking AN ONLINE NEWSPAPER for advice...after his family is all up in arms.

What a horrid EST. What kind of mind does OP have?

When trolling for sex on the net, be sure to always use a dummy e-mail account.

Of course it's an EST, but just because Prudie answered it doesn't mean she fell for it. I think her light treatment of the situation is a fair indication of how ridiculous she found it.

by Anonymousreply 2808/03/2010

This is an interesting EST and it will have some people believing it. I enjoy elaborate scenarios where some people fall for it and others add to it. That's how we got DataLounge Land and the cinnamon roll stores.

I'm almost certain the author of the letter is the same guy who posted here about falling in love with his FIL and them running off to live together in NYC.%0D %0D It didn't get very far here and Prudie also didn't take it too seriously.

In the olden days, they would have met in the woods somewhere.

Oh please. You all think you're so saavy and jaded because you can spot an EST. Ha! Not quite. None of you were smart enough to realize that Prudie herself is the author of this one.

OP why are you bumping you lame thread that died a nice death a month ago?

Pre-internet, a friend answered an ad. Exchanged details of what they would do. No photos. Met the guy at a coffee shop. His brother placed the ad. No, they didn't get it on.

If father-in-law didn't know it was you, then how did mother-in-law?

by Anonymousreply 4209/07/2010

My sister's female friend met a guy online and chatted for a while and agreed to meet him in a hotel room. She got there first and got undressed under the covers and apparently left the door unlocked, when he walked in she screamed "DAD!!!???"

We're supposed to ignore the OP of this thread bumping it 2 years later?

Get a fucking life, idiot. You must be so proud your EST was accepted at whatever publication.
