Social media and dating
Gone are the days when people needed to enlist the help of a friend of a friend of a friend to find out things about their current or would be partners. These days information about your soul others are but just a click, tweet and heart react away. Fortunately or unfortunately, one look at their Facebook timeline and Instagram handle can tell you way more about their personality than you can find out over years of living together. So in case you guys have just gotten together, about to get together or have suspicions even after years of being together and would like to find out more, here is how you can judge your partner based on who he follows on Instagram:
1. The mother
This is a warning sign. Anyone who follows their mother on Instagram is still pretty much tied around her little finger. Facebook friendship is still understandable. But Instagram follow takes it to another level altogether.
2. The ex-girlfriend
Warning. This is not a drill. If the soldier is still heart reacting to his old heartthrob’s pictures, chances are he is not over her yet and is just subtly waiting for her to start noticing him yet.
3. The boss
No one’s boss is their friend so if he follows his boss on Insta, it is pretty much a given that nothing on his profile can be trusted. Every post out there will be carefully crafted to impress his employer so hardly anything is real. Do not trust such a profile.
4. Several cat profiles
Code red. Pretty sure this means that he is plotting to take over the world with those feline goddesses and they meet at night and discuss important things like laser lights and fish. But you cannot let him know that you know. Your life might be in danger otherwise.
5. Daenerys Targaryen
This woman is nothing but the lack of brain and a lot of hotness. So even if you do not judge your boyfriend for following her, I will.
6. Salman Khan
This dude is basically biceps, murdering people and blaming it all on his poor driver. So if your boo actually follows this wretch, it might be time for him to become your ex-boo. Also, watch out for dead bodies hidden subtly away in the cupboard or something. You can never be too careful.
7. Ranbir Kapoor
Look out for packed bags and an obsession with buying new cameras and flight tickets to Rome hidden in books. Pretty sure he is about to pull a Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’s Bunny on your rear.
Sad attempts at poor jokes aside, it is true that these days our social media profiles say a lot more about us than is revealed in daily interactions. Which is both depressing and amusing. My mother comes to know about my new partner way before I tell her, for example. And asking for help when having a meltdown is just a status update away. So it should be pretty easy for you to find more about your boo without asking him too many questions and making him uncomfortable. Do be careful about what you ask for. What you find out might be the making or breaking of your much cherished love life.
