    Don't you think people who take regular selfies have a narcassistic personality trait?
    Isn't that off putting in a potentional relationship?
    How about those who post regular selfies to instagram? That sh*t would annoy me.
    It's not only narcassistic, it's attention seeking.

    I completely agree. People that have instagrams or have tons of selfies on their phones are vain and narcissistic.

    I wouldn't say Narcissistic but it's attention seeking for sure and annoying to be honest.

    How frequent are we talking?

    So taking pictures of yourself now means you're on the way to a mental health disorder...:rolleyes:

    If people want to take pictures of themselves and it's clearly not harming anyone, then personally I don't see the issue.

    Extreme vanity/arrogance is off-putting (but that's because of the way they treat others, not what they do in their personal life).

    I don't have Instagram, Snapchat or even Facebook, so if someone is utterly devoted to building a life there, we might not be compatible relationship-wise (but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with them for having a different lifestyle).

    Possibly but it could also be insecurities ie they need the likes and comments from their friends telling them how great their hair looks today or how nice that new top is etc.

    If you read it properly I'm asking about it on the relationship side of things. Idiot.

    It's just something I have observed. Instagramees always tend to be either really insecure or very vain. No in between.

    I've been called vain, narcissistic and arrogant several times on TSR, and I rarely take selfies and don't have an Instagram.

    Part of the reason for posting it on Instagram is to get attention tbh :lol:

    But I wouldn't say it's a terrible thing, plenty of people take selfies. Only if they do it excessively.

    Yeah nothing wrong with that. But there's a clear difference between someone who does that and someone who's vain
