You guys seemed to really enjoy my last relationship post about not being “that girl” over text message, so I figured I’d make it a series. This week is, Don’t be “that girl” on Social Media.
I get it. Everything is about social media and depicting your life a certain way, and if your boyfriend isn’t on your Instagram is he really your boyfriend? The answer is yes, he is. BUT, there are definitely some things you don’t want to do if your boyfriend or the guy you aren’t officially dating isn’t doing.
1. Don’t add his friends and family on social media
Don’t be that girl that adds his mom on Facebook and follows his sister on Instagram before you’ve had the chance to meet them. I wouldn’t even do it at all unless they sought you out first. You don’t want to overstep a boundary, immerse yourself in every aspect of his life, or stalk his family before they’re ready. I would wait for them to open that door before you just walk in.
2. Don’t over-post photos of him
If he’s not posting photos of you two together, don’t post photos of you two together. It’s that simple. There are so many times when women post photos of their relationship all over their Instagram and you click on the guys page and you would never even know he was in a relationship. There’s a reason his page is giving off that message so save yourself from the disappointment.
3. Don’t comment on pictures and like everything
Lay off the “like” button. Liking things is a quick way to pop into his notifications and remind him, “Hey, remember me? Still here,” when he may not want to be reminded. It always pays off to lay low and let him do the chasing. Liking and commenting on everything right away can come off as being too aggressive and you would rather have the man be too aggressive and “too into you” than the other way around.
