          Creepy Dad or Midlife Crisis: "My Husband's Inappropriate Sexting, Social Media Posts and Messages to Our Daughters' Friends"

          September 29, 2015

          Tammy claims her husband, Richard, is obsessed with social media and sexting with women in secret online groups. Richard says if Tammy paid him more attention, he wouldn’t have to look elsewhere.
          Richard has five social media pages, but his wife and their grown daughters say one in particular makes them sick to their stomachs. Tammy says Richard publicly posts sexually explicit pictures and comments on his “uncensored” page for all their friends and family to see.

          According to his daughters, Richard also has sent inappropriate messages to their friends. Richard’s daughters say they are devastated that their father has become the “creepy old man” who makes them and their friends feel uncomfortable.

          Can Richard log out of social media long enough to repair his family, or is it too late?
