Question from Valerie M.: I have been with my guy for a few years. I love him and he loves me, but we view social media differently and it causes us to bump heads. He “likes” photos of other girls constantly, especially if they’re half naked. I’ve told him repeatedly why it bothers me when he does this and ask how he would feel if I did the same thing, but he continues to do so. Am I being too sensitive? I know you can find others attractive while in a relationship, but letting the world know you like all these suggestive photos seems a little unnecessary and juvenile.

Dating during these technologically savvy times is a bit more complicated than it used to be. Social media has completely changed how people view relationships, love and faithfulness. Gone are the days when men used to open up a magazine and silently admire the opposite sex. However, do not fret, leave it up to our relationship experts who can offer relationship advice and dating tips that may provide comfort about your partner’s social media activity.

Relationship Advice On Social Media Etiquette

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: Your boyfriend “liking” other women’s provocative photos is not only a bit inappropriate, but it’s also completely disrespectful to you. Especially after you explained to him how it makes you feel. He’s being insensitive to you and your feelings. Sometimes the only way to make him see your point is to give him a taste of his own medicine by doing the same thing with other men’s photos. If that doesn’t work, then I suggest you have another heart to heart talk with him and if he still doesn’t get the point, then I would re-evaluate whether you want to be with a man who doesn’t respect you or your feelings.

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: Although I am not a big fan of poking around my partner’s online content, you’ve already opened Pandora’s Box. And now you have to do something about what you’ve discovered. Men are visual creatures, but when a guy is in a committed relationship, “liking” scores of scantily clad women online is not a great idea. Since you’ve been together for a few years, you can most likely chalk this behavior up to “checking out the menu without ordering.” But can you be sure? You’ve asked him to stop, yet he continues “liking” these women. My relationship advice is to ask him to curtail his behavior one more time. If he is deliberating doing something that bothers you, his priorities are out of order. At this point, if he won’t stop… maybe he has to go. Your call!
