Guys in relationships, does your gf's social media presence affect you?Watch
Girls get so much validation these days. Why would she crave your affection as much?
I want to have a serious discussion about this. Thank you!
Girls just crave attention and validation. Without it they feel worthless. No wonder they keep on accepting random people's request for friends or followers. My ex was no exception and she had a lot of random guys following her. I, on the other hand, had few selected followers and only my closest of friends were following me and vice versa. She never thought about not liking other guy's pics or not allowing other guys to like her's until she saw that I started liking other girl's pics online. As soon as she 'found out' we had arguments. Huge double standards. Eventually came down to a compromise which was basically we werent allowed to have the opposite gender to like our pics.. The more mature thing would've been to just keep the close friends added/allow them to follow and not care if a close friend likes a pic. But I mean, clearly not.
Some girls get lots of likes because they have a wide circle of friends, current school, old school, job, clubs/sports, whatever. Attention from a boyf is very different, and receiving DMs from random guys is only a threat if she’s answering them
I got annoyed when guys liked my gf's pictures. Made me think she was talking to them behind my back, etc. She also had problems with my social media activity which came to light when we had our last fight. She thought I wasn't keeping our relationship private enough, which was absurd from my POV, but if there's any lesson to all of this, just simply STOP using social media when you're with someone. It can ruin relationships, no matter how trusting and sincere you are.
i think it's way harder to have trust in a relationships now compared to maybe 20-30years ago.
