There are few people who do not understand the obsessive addiction that is Pinterest. When everything that you could ever want is curated onto one website, it is difficult to not become addicted. Girls pin everything from food to wedding ideas to sorority crafts to funny memes. For any need or want, there is a Pinterest board out there somewhere.
In general, boys don't understand Pinterest. It truly baffles them. Honestly, there are quite a few things that you will find on your Pinterest boards that your boyfriend really should not see. Here are a few Pinterest staples that you should keep hidden from you boy at all costs.
Anything and Everything to do with Weddings
Every girl's favorite board, and every boyfriend's worst nightmare. Not only does a wedding board say "commitment" in big, bold letters, it also sets future wedding expectations extremely high. It would benefit both you and your boyfriend if he doesn't find out you have every detail of your wedding planned down to the font style of the Save the Date cards. There is a possibility it could cause him to hyperventilate and/or run screaming in the other direction. The less he knows about your wedding board right now, the more likely it probably is that you will get to plan that dream wedding with him.
All Pins on a Board with a Title Along the Lines of "Maybe, Baby!"
A bit self explanatory but this type of board, like the wedding board, screams "I want to settle down" to a boy. All of the baby name lists, baby/family picture ideas, birth announcement templates, and shower ideas could possibly cause your boyfriend to pass out cold. If he knew about the existence of this board, he would not think of this in simple terms. He would take this as an immediate desire to have babies. And lots of them. And take black and white pictures of their feet. For now, keep all of those adorable ideas to yourself.
Pins of Contouring Tips and Tutorials
If your boyfriend saw the specific steps it takes to make your cheekbones look on point, he would be extremely disturbed. Makeup routines, like Pinterest, really baffle boys. They don't understand, and most likely never will, which is probably for the best. And do you really want him to know how you make your face look so fabulous? Of course not. So keep the mystery alive, and don't let him find out about the 100 different contouring tutorials you have collected. Maybe she's born with it, maybe she found it on Pinterest.
Cute Date Ideas Board
Most of the date ideas you will find on Pinterest are absolutely adorable, but slightly corny and unrealistic. You are well aware that your boyfriend will never, ever want to do anything like "Rake a pile of leaves and then jump in them" or do anything involving Hobby Lobby and picking out fall and Christmas decor. But if he sees you pinned any of that stuff, he might feel like you want to actually do them and feel bad that you haven't.
To avoid making him feel inadequate, keep the cutesy fall date dreams to yourself. You and I both know you don't actually want to bake cinnamon apple scones with your significant other.
