Blasting your partner online may make you temporarily feel better, but in the long run, not so much

Yahoo's Shine page has published a post I wrote about the hazards of sharing intimate details online, particularly if they're unflattering to your partner.

Here's the intro:

"Suppose that your partner hasn't been, shall we say, all that steamy between the sheets lately. No matter how much effort you put into improving the situation -- primping everything that can be primped, dropping a small fortune on uncomfortable lingerie, putting together the perfect slow-jam playlist, decanting a bottle of robust pinot noir at bedside -- you're unable to create enough of a spark to light a match, never mind a roaring, passionate fire.

And, understandably, you're quite irritated about the whole thing. You want to vent, desperately, lest your head explode with frustration. Do you phone a friend? Do you contact a lot of friends by sharing wry comments on Facebook, Twitter and other social media? Or do you unleash your angst on your own anonymous blog, sparing no detail, leaving no gripe behind? Blasting your partner online may temporarily make you feel better. It's cheaper than therapy. However, should your beloved stumble upon your online comments, the scarcity of lusty nights will be the least of your concerns."
