My Boyfriend Keeps Complimenting Other Women On Instagram: What To Do About It

Published

He’s your boyfriend, so why is he complimenting other women’s Instagram selfies? While it might seem like toxic behavior, it’s good to log off, take a few deep breaths, and then figure out how to deal with the situation. It might not be a big deal and is probably more harmless than you’d think. Here’s what to do.

Look at the comments.

You can’t just assume that he’s commenting on other women’s posts on social media because he’s up to no good. First, check out what exactly he’s saying. If he compliments his friend Jane for her excellent work promotion, that’s not exactly something to get worked up about, right? Same for if he congratulates his old high school friend for running a marathon. That’s just being supportive, not flirty.

What about sexy posts?

On the other hand, if he’s commenting on women’s hot bikini pics and telling the women in question they’re gorgeous, it can start to feel like he’s flirting and crossing a relationship boundary. After all, why is he complimenting other women’s appearance on Instagram when he has you right in front of him?

Is he doing it in full view?

If you have to stalk him online to find out what he’s commenting on other women’s social media posts because he doesn’t want you to follow him on Instagram, then that’s a red flag. What is he hiding? Bear in mind, though, that even if he’s doing this behavior in full view of you, it doesn’t mean it’s benign.

Is it a one-off?

Maybe he commented that one of his Instagram followers is looking beautiful in her latest no-makeup selfie. While that might get your blood pumping with anxiety or frustration, it’s worth checking out if this is a once-off or he’s always “liking” and commenting on her posts. Maybe he genuinely was complimenting her because he was trying to make her feel good. There’s not necessarily anything wrong with that.

Is it always the same woman?

Yup, your warning bells should sound if he’s always complimenting one specific woman on his friends list. This could make you feel that he’s building a connection with her or trying to impress her, so that’s not cool. It’s worth keeping an eye on their interactions, although they could very well be DMing each other. Ugh, it’s enough to make you mad.

Is he adding tons of sexy women to his profiles?

If the guy’s adding tons of hot women to the list of his Instagram followers, it might feel dodgy, whether or not he knows them in real life. It’s really about respect. It’s not the type of behavior you’d expect (or should accept) from someone who’s in a relationship with you.

Think about your social media behavior.

Chances are that if you had to scroll through your social media activity, you’d see that you’ve complimented a few guys online yourself. Maybe once (or a few times) the comments were about their looks or progress at the gym. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, so try to keep things in perspective before you allow the anxiety to get to you!

Look at your relationship.

Sometimes, these types of situations can be triggers for what’s going on in your relationship with the person. If your partner is fading you out or making you question if he’s really interested, seeing him compliment other women on Instagram may be enough to help you figure out where you stand.

Confront your partner.

If the issue is that something’s not going well in the relationship, then focus on that when you confront your partner. This will open up the lines of communication and help you to see if being with them is worth it or a waste of time. Similarly, if the issue is that your boyfriend is constantly flirting online with other women and it makes you feel uncomfortable, then you should chat to them about it – even if your relationship was going well before this. You don’t want the issue to become an obstacle on your path.

They could be micro-cheating.

If your boyfriend is flirting online and making you feel uncomfortable, then he’s guilty of micro-cheating. He might not be meeting these women offline and having physical affairs with them, but he’s still crossing a boundary and betraying you. Talk to him about how his behavior makes you feel. If he respects you and the relationship, he will stop and set some boundaries with his interactions with other women. Remember, just because you can see what he’s doing online, it doesn’t mean that it’s fair game for him to continue with his actions!

Seeing your boyfriend compliment other women on Instagram (or anywhere else online) can be frustrating and demoralizing, but it doesn’t have to end your relationship. You just have to be smart about it.

The Home Alone House Is Available To Rent On Airbnb, Ya Filthy Animals

Published

on

There are a million and one Christmas movies out there, but not one of them compares to the greatness that is Home Alone. It’s a total classic and still holds up more than 30 years later. If you love it just as much as me, you might be excited to know that the actual house used in the filming of the movie is available to rent on Airbnb.

The house is in Winnetka, Illinois. In Home Alone, the McAllister family lives in Chicago. The actual house is located in Winnetka, about 25 minutes away from the city, so you can do some sightseeing while you’re there.

Buzz is the one who listed the house. Hilariously, the Airbnb listing that would allow visitors to stay at the Home Alone house for one night only was apparently placed by Buzz McAllister, that little rascal. Many Christmases ago, the McCallisters went to Paris — well, most of us,” Buzz writes in the listing. “Though we’re older and wiser now (I’ve even got my own security firm), we’re never too old for holiday hijinks. So, while we’re away on vacation (all of us, this time), I’m inviting one crew of mischief-makers to let their inner eight-year-olds run free in my childhood home on Dec. 12.”

Your stay comes with all kinds of added extras to make it authentic. Not only will you be greeted to a “cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree” but you’ll also be treated to a “candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.” Oh, and Axl, his pet tarantula, will apparently also be hanging out (though hopefully in a cage).

The house seems to be a lot smaller than it was in the movie. I don’t know about you, but the Home Alone house always seemed like a mansion to me. Add to that the fact that the McAllisters seemed to host their entire family and it would have to be big, right? However, the listing only mentions two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, which is kind of weird. Still, that’s plenty of space for me!

You’ll have to be quick if you want to stay there. The house will open for booking on December 7 and chances are, the slots will fill up fast.

Greta Thunberg ‘Needs A Smacked Bottom’ According To Jeremy Clarkson

Published

on

Greta Thunberg is an environmental activist who isn’t shy about calling the bigwigs out on their BS. She’s outspoken, direct, and tells it like it is. Of course, that offends many people, particularly men with fragile egos, who feel the need to try and belittle her intelligence and infantilize her to distract from her actual message (which makes a whole lot of sense). Case in point? Jeremy Clarkson, best known for being the host of Top Gear and a Grade-A twat, has claimed that Thunberg “needs a smacked bottom” for… standing up for what’s right?

Thunberg makes some really good points. She’s been speaking out on the measures needed to truly save the environment for years, but it was her recent protest outside the COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland that really got Clarkson’s goat. In an interview with The Times, Clarkson said that he doesn’t understand the “Greta Thunberg phenomenon” and that she “needs a smacked bottom.” Uh, gross.

Apparently, he agrees with Thunberg’s stance. Thunberg called for “immediate drastic annual emission cuts” at COP26 and criticized the event as a “two-week-long celebration of business as usual and blah, blah, blah” used to “create loopholes to benefit themselves.” She’s completely right about that, and Clarkson himself admits that. However, he took issue with the fact that she protested at all, calling it “pointless.”

I guess we should all just accept that the planet is destroyed and get on with it? At least according to Clarkson. “I simply don’t get the Thunberg phenomenon. She has no knowledge of how the world works, no manners and no letters after her name because instead of going to school, she’s been busy sailing round the world so she can be mardy and abusive to grownups,” he said.

The idea that standard school = education is ridiculous. Clarkson is trying to delegitimize everything Thunberg is saying by insisting that the only way she could know what she’s talking about is… going to high school. Where environmental science isn’t particularly taught, certainly not on a deep level. See how he’s earned that Grade-A twat label?

Why is he talking about Thunberg’s “bottom” anyway? This is perhaps the biggest issue of all: why is a 61-year-old man talking about spanking an 18-year-old woman’s “bottom” as, I don’t know, punishment (???) for speaking out about climate change? “What she needs is a smacked bottom. Here’s a tip, Greta: lecturing me on what needs to be done is pointless. It’d be like standing in my bedroom every morning ordering me to wear clothes. I know already,” he said.

Clarkson decided to throw in some good ol’ xenophobia as well. Not one to be outdone by creepy comments alone, he then suggested Thunberg should turn her ire towards China, completely ignoring the fact that Thunberg regularly calls out ALL world leaders for not doing more about climate change. “What you should be doing instead is cycling to countries where people are perhaps less aware of what should be done. China for example. That I’d like to see,” he said. “Greta standing outside Zhongnanhai with her parka and her Glastonbury backpack and her microphone, lecturing the leaders about their policies on coal and trees and so on.”

He’s been facing understandable backlash about his comments. After the interview was published, people took to social media to express their very “WTF?” thoughts on Clarkson’s comments. “What is it about Greta Thunberg that makes all old guys get angry and defensive? Brilliant to see so many young people in Glasgow caring about this planet,” one person wrote. Another remarked: “There’s a creepy shivery dirty old man weirdness to Jeremy Clarkson’s attempt at humor this week in his rage at Greta Thunberg!”

How To Flirt WIth A Guy Without Risking Embarassment

Published

on

Showing a guy you’re interested in him without making a fool of yourself is a delicate balance. You don’t want to come off as aloof or make him think you don’t care so that he doesn’t bother to pursue you, but you also don’t want to fall all over him when you’re not even sure if he’s into you. Here’s how to flirt with a guy and keep it as chill as possible while avoiding embarrassment altogether.

Keep it casual.

This is perhaps the most important advice when it comes to figuring out how to flirt with a guy. Many men are easily scared off in the beginning so you want to avoid coming on too strong. You can do that easily by just keeping it relaxed. Instead of asking him if he wants to go on a date with you because you’re single and looking for your future husband (lol, I know it’s true), why not just ask him if he feels like hanging out on Saturday night or going to the greenmarket with you on Sunday? The more relaxed your approach, the less stressful it’ll be for you.

Read the room.

By this I mean you should feel him out to make sure flirting with him is even appropriate. If he’s a relative stranger, you probably want to make sure he’s actually single and open to dating before you start putting the moves on him. Pay attention to little details to make sure you have the all-clear before putting yourself out there.

Mirror his body language.

A good way to flirt with a guy is by mirroring the same energy he’s giving you. If he’s a touchy-feely guy and you’re into physical touch as well, feel free to put your hand on his arm if he makes you laugh or lean in towards him. Mirroring his actions will let you know that what you’re doing is appropriate while also showing your interest. After all, if you weren’t feeling it, you’d probably avoid any kind of contact, right?

Focus on the things you have in common.

If you both like some obscure band that most of your other fans haven’t heard of, connect on that! Tap into the unique things you connect on and really focus on that. When he sees that you’re into some of the more niche things that get him going, he’ll be way more likely to be into you (or at least be way more intrigued). It may seem like this isn’t going to get you a date at all, but it’s a great way to flirt with a guy, trust me.

Have confidence.

At the end of the day, showing a guy you’re interested in him doesn’t have to be embarrassing even if he’s not feeling the same. How’s that, you ask? You should have confidence. Know that you’re a snack and that any guy would be lucky to have you. Feel confident in your interest in him as well as your ability to brush your shoulders off if he’s not feeling the same. With an attitude like that, you really can’t lose.
