No face, no case right? You may have seen the trend of people dating someone or their on a date but we can’t see the guy or girls face.
Celebrities and influencers started the trend of not posting their boyfriend or girlfriend for one main reason: they don’t want you or the paparazzi in their business more than you already are.
However, since we live in such a social media world it’s almost impossible not to post what you’re doing and things that make you happy, including that new boyfriend or girlfriend.
So why make it obvious that someone has entered your life but not show what they look like?
Here Are 5 Reasons Why Girls Do It:
1. THAT’S NOT THEIR BOYFRIEND
It’s really that simple. Their out with this guy, it could even be their first date but their not in a relationship with him.
2. FOR THE FUN OFF IT
At the end of the day it’s their social media and their allowed to post and do what they want.
3. THEY THINK IT WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THEIR FOLLOWERS
This one personally irks me the most. These are the girls who think their accounts have a blue check next to their profile photo. Not showing their boyfriend’s face is going to make their followers feel some type of way (jealous, curious, etc.)
4. THEIR SLIGHTLY EMBARRASSED BY THEM
Maybe he’s the ex you told everyone you was done with or he’s not too attractive. I’m sure many of us ladies are guilty of this and it’s okay. You’re too concerned about what others might think so you won’t reveal who they are.
5. IT’S JUST NOT YOUR BUSINESS
Like I mentioned above, we live in a social media world. If she wants to post that she’s having a good time it’s no one’s business who she’s having a good time with. So click and carry on.
Here Are 5 Reasons Why Guys Do It:
It may be any of the same 5 reasons listed above but here’s the biggest reason why:
** YOU ARE NOT THEIR GIRLFRIEND **
Ladies no matter what they say behind closed doors, simply put your not theirs. Guys will either post their trophy or they won’t.
Don’t listen to their bullshit excuses “I don’t even post like that.” “Why does it matter?” “What we have is our business” bla, bla, bla.
However, most importantly everyone treats their social media differently and everyone interprets social media differently so don’t let a lack of posts or a hidden face make or break your relationship with that person (a relationship doesn’t only mean boyfriend or girlfriend).
Here’s my personal advice:
If you didn’t meet them on social media it’s nice not to have their profile information as yet, get to know the person before jumping to conclusions. Then when you decide to follow each other, have a conversation about social media and what you both decide to post. Post it when you know it’s real and if it doesn’t work out, it’s okay a photo can be deleted.
