Males In A Relationship: Why Do You Guys Follow/Like Instagram Models When You’re In A Relationship?
Reddit user u/chanelesposito asks: "Males in a relationship: why do you guys follow/ like Instagram models when you’re in a relationship?" Replies included: "If I'm only following online, and not in real life, what's the problem?" I am happily married but I still follow celebrities and models (female and male) on IG and my partner does the same. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look at beautiful people and you can think someone is beautiful, but not in a sexual way. Folks don’t understand that there’s about 100 steps in between thinking someone is beautiful and wanting to sleep or have a relationship with him or her. If I’m so insecure that I get upset when my partner follows pretty models, then there is something wrong with the relationship." .."Absolutely spot on. Like I don’t care who she follows. as long as we are loyal to each other." "I stopped it as soon as I got into my relationship coz I felt like looking at other women and getting off to that whilst being in a relationship felt like cheating and my girlfriend thinks like that too. So it depends on each person" "Most decent guys wouldn't do this." "Hi - new perspective. I'm not an "Instagram model" but I am a minor fitness influencer. So I've got a larger than most following. "The number of messages I get from men in relationships is astounding. For me personally, it's good to have followers and people that engage/follow my content or buy my work out plans. However, if you've got a man for instance, and he doesn't work out, and I'm not his PT - why is he liking/following/messaging? "I think it's reasonable if your man is into fitness as he might be looking for tips, workout routines etc. But if he's not going to the gym - he's obviously following fitness models/influencer's for other reasons. "My DM requests could quite literally ruin relationships. So watch your men, you've a right to be wary of it."
