My [29M] GF [27F] doesn’t want to post me on social media because it may cause “drama” from guys she rejected.
Hi everyone. I don’t normally like posting about my relationship online but am a little perplexed as to how to take this one.
My current GF and I have been dating for a couple of months and things have been great. I can tell that she’s committed to the relationship and we spend a great amount of time with each other and have fun.
Yesterday we were on a trip and I took a selfie of us and said “you should post that” without much thought. She then said “oh you can post it, but I don’t think I want to.”
I asked her why and she said that it could “cause drama.” Again, I asked her what she meant and she said she has a lot of guys who she rejected that follow her on Instagram and she doesn’t want the “oh I thought you weren’t ready for a relationship?” type of comments.
I asked her why she cares and why she keeps guys like that on social media to which she didn’t say anything.
I know she’s not keeping the relationship a secret, her friends and family know about me. I’m just a little concerned as to whether this type of behavior could be indicative of people who chronically seek attention online from the opposite gender.
There’s nothing particularly wrong with that, but I’d honestly not know how to feel about a partner that’s like that.
Would this be particularly alarming behavior? Or should I just calm down and enjoy the ride? Thing is, I’d like to talk to her about this but no matter how I word it it sounds confrontational/judgmental.
Thanks in advance.
