Question from Mary Kate K.: I have a friend that has been dating this guy for almost 2 years. It seems like every other day she’s uploading a picture of the two of them with some caption like, “the love of my life and I enjoying dinner at our favorite restaurant” or “look at the flowers my boyfriend gave me after a hard day!” I’m happy for her…but I’m also sick to my stomach. How do I nicely tell her to tone it down?

Dating Advice: How To Deal With Too Much PDA

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: While it can be annoying when a friend posts too much about their relationship and love on social media, it’s not really your place to tell your friend how much she should or shouldn’t post on Instagram. I think the bigger issue is, you really need to ask yourself why it really bothers you so much? Her posts aren’t vulgar or offensive by any means, however if her posts are making you physically sick to your stomach, then you have a choice to follow or unfollow her. If you follow her, then just be a good friend and be truly happy for her. And if you can’t be happy for her, my love advice is to stop following her.

Paige Wyatt, Reality TV Star: Telling someone to stop posting about their relationship is a conversation that will never end well and will also make you seem a bit jealous. Simply unfollow her on so you don’t see her posts unless you search for them. Telling someone to tone down their happiness online will make you seem unsupportive of their relationship and stir up trouble.

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: For whatever reason, you’d prefer not to see your friend’s parade of Instagram posts with her boyfriend of almost two years. Here is an easy solution: My dating advice is to stop following her on Instagram. It’s not appropriate to ask her to stop posting what makes her happy. After all, it’s her account. The question you might ask yourself is why. Are you being good friend and concerned about the guy, fear your friend is setting herself up for an embarrassing fail on social media? Or could you be a tad jealous of her good fortune? Ouch. In our Kardashian world where anything and everything is exposed on social media, I’m not feeling why your friend’s Insta-bragging is such an issue. Respect and good luck, Mary Kate.
