My boyfriend of 1 year doesn’t post on instagram but follows about 20 of his friends. He has the app just to check in on his friends. He said I was welcome to follow him, but he didn’t want to look at mine because he doesn’t want to overreact to a picture I post (such as partying or posing with guys). He has gone theough my account once.
I’m just confused cause whenI like someone, I want to know more about them and follow their social media.
It this just a lack of interest or does he really want to avoid seeing “too much” of me?
I googled this situation to see if there is anyone w the same problem but couldn’t find anyApril 18, 2016 at 6:51 am #526025

I think you’re making a big deal out of nothing. Is the relationship good otherwise? Do you enjoy the time you spend together? That’s what really matters. Not social media.April 18, 2016 at 8:06 am #526044
This sort of question is exactly why me and my bf purposely don’t have each other on any social media. It doesn’t mean anything yet causes so much strife.April 18, 2016 at 8:14 am #526047
Do you want a relationship with a human or with a website…?April 18, 2016 at 9:07 am #526056
Ok no need for the smart ass comments…. Just want opinions and if anyone had similar experiences since I never dated anyone that doesn’t use social media. The relationship is good. Good to know Anon that there are couples that mutually avoid social mediaApril 18, 2016 at 9:15 am #526060
I guess if you have a good relationship then its just a quirk of his. People can get touchy about this stuff if anything he sounds like he needs to lighten up a bit but its not a deal breaker. xMay 29, 2017 at 2:28 am #630166

My bf did not follow me on social media but he allowed me to follow him, I think he just doesn’t want to see my posts. Guys are emotional too and tend to feel overwhelmed at times. I want him to follow me back because him not doing so makes me feel a type of way.October 5, 2017 at 11:48 am #658540
1st world problems!October 21, 2018 at 11:11 pm #725577
Yes. I do have the exact situation. I follow my boyfriend in Instagram but he won’t follow me but he follows his friends and family I’m not sure why I’ve been asking him this several times why can’t he follow me back. But I did not get any answer all he said is that we’re happy with just like this it doesn’t matter if I follow you or not. As long as we’re happy it’s fine. I’m not sure what’s the reason because he never answer the WHY question but I think it’s because he doesn’t want him to be tagged in a social media he likes to have a low profile in social media and don’t want him to be tagged.October 22, 2018 at 1:00 am #725583
Uninteresting pics?November 2, 2018 at 9:14 am #727907
i can think of 2 possibilities :
1/ he’s the super jealous type (” who is that guy who liked ur picture ?” ” why did you respond with a heart to that guy’s comment ?”that kind of guy )
and he can’t control it so he chose not to follow you .
2/ maybe he is keeping you a secret ! cz if people see that he follows you , they will question it , a secret from his family or friends or fiance or wife or the other girl with whom he flirts with ! you know best !
that’s all i can think of for now !November 2, 2018 at 10:20 am #727916
Jae, what are your ages?November 6, 2018 at 6:28 pm #728513
I had a crush who stopped liking my posts and photos. But he was daily liking other girls photos. I was so angry but kept quiet. Later he blocked me for 5 days. Then he unblocked me. And when I asked why did you do this? He said it might have happened as a mistake. That he didn’t do it. Later I opened an instagram account for myself. Immediately he went invisible. So I guessed he blocked me. When I asked him why he pretended he never blocked me. He said he was unaware I had instagram l. Then he found me and started following me. But never liking any of my photos. I know he is hiding me. He doesn’t want his friends to quess who is the woman he has a situationship with. So…you see there is worse than what you describe. All I know is that men suck. They are just faulty, incomplete. If women can be smart then please go ahead and smash their hearts. You are only doing a favor to mankind haha. I am so disappointed from men really that they can’t rise any longer in my eyes…sorry for being so harsh but if you want the truth this is it.. Best to think of the worst and be prepared than be silly like me wasting your life hoping men will be good and treat you properly… xxNovember 28, 2019 at 5:17 pm #779550
My bf doesn’t want to follow me because he’s the jealous type. He can’t stand other guys’ comments and likes. So there’s that. Otherwise the relationship is good. Instagram on the other hand? Not
