A woman was insulted when she discovered her boyfriend edits photos of her before posting them online.
The woman says she doesn’t Instagram but has always given her boyfriend permission to post photos of me.
However, she said she was horrified to find that ever single picture of herself and him were edited.
The woman took to Reddit to explain the situation and ask for advice on how she should approach the situation with her boyfriend.
She wrote: “I don’t have Instagram but he’s always had permission to post photos of me.
“Anyway, my friend was on her phone and I saw one of his pictures pop up. I asked her to go into his account and EVERY single picture of us was edited. Not extremely, and he edits himself too, but the stuff he does for me is a bit insulting.”
The woman added: “My skin is paler, my boobs are bigger, I’m smiling with teeth, completely clear face… he edits himself too, but not to the extent that he edits me.
“I’m pretty insulted by this (is natural me not good enough for you?) but at the same time I’m wondering if he’s just really insecure and I’m being roped into it. Should I approach this gently?”
Many people assured the woman she was right in feeling hurt over the editing and should bring it up with her boyfriend.
One wrote: “You should just be direct. Tell him you saw the edited pics and feel insulted by it. Tell him to stop editing you or just stop posting pics. I’d feel really hurt by that.”
While another added: “Edited pictures can be enjoyed by both parties, but posting them online as a representation of his life is insulting and would make me feel devalued.
“I agree that being direct is the better way to approach the subject, and if he doesn’t understand, this might be a good way to explain it.”
A third chimed in: “For me, this would be a deal breaker. Throw the whole man out.
“I am only interested in dating people who are attracted to me how I actually look in person, and who are proud to stand next to me, flaws and all.
“I personally can’t imagine ever getting over this or any redeeming qualities he could have that would let me see past this.
“I’d suggest asking yourself those same questions – date people who make you feel good!”
