Boyfriend won't be in photos with me Watch

    Boyfriend of 3 years won't be in pictures with me - he rarely posts on Facebook/Instagram which I understand but he won't even be in photos for me to post. He takes loads of just me and he's even got a picture of me as his background but he hates being in photos. It makes me sad because we've been together so long and we must have about 4 or 5 nice photos of us together in total - on the odd occasion I've managed to get him in a selfie he won't smile and just looks very awkward.

    My friends joke that it looks like I just go to places on my own and that he is my camera man because all my holiday pics etc are just ones he has taken of me - not us together. What can I do?! I know it's not that important overall but it would be nice to be able to look back at pictures of us -

    Then surely he wouldn't mind ME putting up pictures? Obviously I don't think he's ugly or I wouldn't be with him

    he’s probably just self conscious I think a lot of guys don’t like having their photo taken

    Same. I don't know how people have 100+ pics of themselves on Facebook, Insta, etc. and update them on a regular basis. I have like... five pics of me in total from the past three years or so.

    I like to keep a minimal online presence. Putting your entire life online is shivering.
