Our chances of dating instagram picture
“Hardly ever do I comment on a hot chick’s pic just cuz they are hot, cuz they literally don’t care,” he says. “Instagram is so ego-centric however you spin it, and no girl is ever going to really be like, ‘oh no, how dare he pat my ego.’ I just do it if a chick looks good. In fact, some guys even said that they’d only comment on a girl’s photo if they saw things getting serious between them or thought they had a chance.
But Greg, who recently graduated college and moved across the country, kind of YOLOS. Then again, there are always going to be guys who DGAF, like Greg.
Is the type of guy who throws likes to Instagram models the type of guy who would cheat on you with an Instagram model given the chance?
Lots of the guys I talked to seem to understand the jealousy factor, and said they would likely chill on their Instagram thirst if they got into a relationship.
If it’s a casual hook-up, who cares, it’s all based on your plan.” Other dudes seemed confused by the idea of following a hook-up’s friends in general, which we take as a good sign, I guess.
All in all, Instagram is just another social media platform that seriously complicates dating.
“I’m very selective with my likes,” says Andreas, 25.
And according to most of these guys, commenting is clearly a little more serious.“I’d say its about 80/20 me liking girls’ pictures against everything else,” he says. You might find this behavior annoying, or you might find it a dealbreaker. But just know that when a guy says it “means nothing,” that’s not totally true.But other dudes say they don’t get too methodical with their insta-likes, and throw out likes pretty freely — if it’s someone they’d wanna “bang.” “I like photos of girls I would bang and pretty much any photo a friend of mine [girls included] would post, unless it’s insulting to someone else,” says David, 21. “I definitely like a girl’s pictures more if I want to bang her, but sometimes I just appreciate a good picture even if she’s not really my type,” he says. So a dude who likes every girl’s bikini selfie on Instagram is probably not the type of dude you’d consider Prince Charming, but then again, does it really matter?David said that he’d probably continue to like nearly everyone he follows’ photos, but would unfollow lots of the Instagram models that he currently follows. Other guys had dealt with Instagram related arguments before.Greg, 23, recalls when his college girlfriend took things too far and he simply stopped using Instagram to avoid the fights.
