Everyone has that one friend who has to take a selfie every 5 minutes. You kind of take them with a pinch of salt and occasionally like the odd photo to appease their obvious obsession with ‘likes’.
But what happens when that social media narcissist is your other half? And more importantly, how long can you ignore the signs that she seems to love her camera phone more than she loves you?
In case there was any doubt, here are the signs that your girlfriend is the ultimate selfie wh**e:
Her Snap Chat is busier than the Victoria Line during rush hour. Who she is sending these pictures to, is anyone’s guess, because her Snap Chat favorites seem to be changing on a daily basis.
Every photo upload is timed perfectly to allow for maximum likes. Forget having a conversation with her on Sunday, that’s Instagram prime time and her time is carefully split between uploading photos and then checking they’ve got an appropriate amount of likes to stay up.
You can’t go onto Facebook without her face coming up in your news feed. Another profile picture it is then.
It’s not that she doesn’t want everyone to know about you. It’s just that, uploading a picture with her boyfriend is going to half the number of likes she gets. Try not to take it personally, she loves you, but she loves her image more.
Every conversation consists of 3 or 4 “huhs” or “sorry what?” or “say that again”. This is partly your fault too you know, can’t you see she’s busy?
You find her constantly asking “oh babe can you take a picture?” Don’t bother saying no, she’ll resort to using the front camera if she has to.
The seriousness with which she takes selfies, would have anyone thinking she was a professional model.
8. She Insists On Taking A Pic Of You, But Only So She Can Then Say: “Okay Take One Of Me Now”
She tries to get you involved so you don’t get annoyed with her selfie habit, but let’s be honest, you don’t need 37 pictures of yourself.
There is no such things as a “bad time” to take a photo. Because if she’s looking cute, the whole world needs to know. Every outfit is wasted in her eyes, unless everyone sees it.
She’s always thanking you for being a sweetheart and liking her latest pic. Which is funny because she didn’t remember to thank you last night when you took her out for dinner. And for someone who likes pictures so much, she didn’t take a single one when she was out with you.
Well, I guess the 14 kitchen selfies of her in her outfit before you picked her up were enough.
The solution? Stop agreeing to take photos of her. Get rid of your car charger so she can’t top up her battery when you’re out together. Show her this blog and if she still doesn’t take the hint, throw her phone out the window.
