    My boyfriend and i have been together 3 years and at the beginning i realised he followed a lot of those really slutty instagram accounts where it's just a bunch of girls half naked in provocative poses and i told him this made me uncomfortable and he immediately apologised and unfollowed them without me even asking. A couple years on I find out he still searches for these accounts quite often. He will search for hashtags such as #thong or #sluts and just look at these photos.

    It's not like I'm not pleasing him sexually, We have a great sex life when we do see each other but we only see each other on the weekends.

    Is this a normal thing for guys to do? I know he's not going to go and sleep with any of these girls but it makes me really uncomfortable that he is looking at other women in this way, it's not even porn it's actual photos of actual girls... I don't want to seem petty if it's what every guy does, What should i do?

    He's not showing you any respect. You've already asked him to stop and he did but now he's looking at those accounts again - he doesn't care that you feel uncomfortable.

    This is unfortunately something that lots of men (and women do). Some people aren't bothered if their boyfriend/partner looks at these sort of pictures but that doesn't mean that if it is something that upset you you should ignore it. I would bring up the issue with him again. Let him know that you are upset and also why it is upsetting you. You are in a serious relationship and it is reasonable for you to raise this issue if it is something that is bothering you.
