I Have Brainwashed My Best FriendHeed my warning! Sexlessness can also lead to brainwashing!
There are many unforeseen consequences of a sexless marriage. There are thousands of heart wrenching stories here, filled with pain & anguish. But brainwashing??!! Apparently, it is a skill that the "refused" develop to compensate for lack of sex. We don't even know we are doing it! And you thought there was only a "downside" to a sexless marriage! Wrong! If you stay in one long enough, like me, you too will develop these extraordinary skills! So if you are thinking of leaving, I caution you to weigh your options. The gift of becoming a " brainwasher" may be just the temptation that you need to stay in your sexless marriage indefinitely!
Thank goodness my STBX has enlightened me! He has made me aware of this power that I have! I had no idea I was able to influence anyone so much.
Last week, during an argument, my H told me that "I" have this gift! Imagine my surprise when he brought up my best friend, Lucinda. It seems, that I have "brainwashed" her! OMG! She has no idea what kind of person I am. After 25 years of friendship, she thinks that I am a great friend. She thinks I am a loyal, kind, funny, loving person. She is wrong! My H explained to me that I am really a cruel, evil, self centered, home wrecker. Oh my poor, unsuspecting friend! How was I able to brainwash her in such a manner that even I didn't know I was doing it?! Maybe my H is correct! Horrors! I really AM cruel!
So this is a warning to all of you! If you love your friends, keep them at a distance. You don't want to accidentally influence their minds, like I have done!
Baaaa haa haa!
