    Something I've noticed is that a few people I know and follow on social media have broken up with their boyfriends. Immediately, the frequency of which they post, particularly selfies (also an increase in tumblr-eque quotes...) rises. Gym selfies, night out selfies, just so many ****ing selfies.

    Is this a trend you guys notice as well?

    So what gives?

    Letting know their ex that they're having a good time without them - in reality - they'll probably cry at night at what coulda been.

    If you have more time alone it makes sense that you would post more. Maybe they're lonely or practising self love through selfies. I'm single and spend a lot of time on Tumblr, but I strongly dislike my face so I stick to posting about Broadway musicals on there.

    I have never been in a relationship and have never posted a selfie on social media (except Snapchat and a couple here on TSR).

    However, I think I agree with your observation in regards to everyone else I know.

    By the way the people i speak of are girls in their early to mid 20s.

    Younger teens do all sorts of mad **** regarding social media.

    I wouldn't say that's revenge. Revenge is like, taking a dump on somebodies laptop and then closing it.

    I find it sad that some people need to get a certain number of likes to feel worthy

    Yes because before they would have been spending that time being boned by their bfs.

    The worst girls are the sloots who shag every guy but don't commit to a relationship. They are on instagram, twitter, facebook and Snapchat constantly

    Why not??

    Ahh i'm curious now i'm totally going to look for your selfie.
    * I went to an all girls school (not so much a reason as an excuse - most people I know have been in relationships and I have male friends)

    * I don't tend to 'fancy' people

    * I am extremely suspicious of people's motives and can get a bit unintentionally mean

    * I'm emotionally unavailable and sometimes just really can't be bothered to talk to people (and I don't tend to beat around the bush so would just say that and people don't like this obvs)

    * I've always prioritised my education

    * I've been told I can be intimidating (this is also completely unintentional)

    This isn't to say I don't want to be in a relationship now. However, I'm pretty ****ed up and I wouldn't want to put a guy through being my first relationship.

    Lol I'm on the post a picture of yourself thread. You commented on my jumper this morning :eyebrow:
