I just recently decided “y’know what? I’m gonna start posting some more stuff on Instagram because I really like my aesthetic now” but I forgot, oh I forgot. For some ungodly reason, some men think Instagram = tinder.
Usually, it starts out civil; because I am always keen to talk to people I made the mistake in the past of replying to these men and it’s gotten me nothing but sausage pics and unsolicited flirting even when I said in the beginning of the chat I foolishly replied to that I have no intention of sending nudes, or flirting.
They obviously ignore that and think I need a little “encouragement” and their way of encouraging is sending unsolicited sausage pics,or graphically describing the acts they want me to do and to do to me. It’s gross (yes I’ve also told them I have a boyfriend, they either don’t believe me or don’t care.)
I’m thinking maybe I should take a few photos with my boyfriend to show I’m not available, but my boyfriend isn’t too keen on having a big presence on social media or photo shoots so it’ll take some convincing. I also doubt this would really discourage them.
Perhaps I should take pictures with one of my girlfriends and pretend we are dating? I don’t know.
My point is just that Instagram isn’t a dating app. It’s annoying when men message me on there as if it is. And it’s even worse seeing their Lovecraftian horror D when I literally did not ask.
