I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

I asked Adam, my 22-year-old boyfriend, his opinion on liking other girls' photos and here's what he had to say:

1. "Liking another girl's photo is cheating and stupid. Plain and simple. It's an absolute no-no in a relationship. That goes especially for selfies and provocative material that a girl posts. If you are with someone who you truly love and respect, then you wouldn't do it. That's an activity you do when you're single."

2. "You're giving that girl attention and letting them know you're interested and you like what you see. It's just horrible and it takes away from your girlfriend. It's immature to me at this point. Why do you have to be doing that? There's just no need for it. You have this amazing girl and there's no reason to be involved in that."

3. "It goes both ways. Your girl liking photos of other guys' selfies or shirtless pics is a big red flag. Someone posting a picture that is designed to get people's attention and if your partner likes it is a huge red flag. The trust should be there on both sides to the maximum. Neither of you should be doing that."

4. "If my girl did that, it would make me feel sad, defeated, and unwanted and I wouldn't trust a girl that did that stuff. Doing that stuff does bad things to the trust in the relationship. Once you start losing that, it's really tough and makes everything go south between the two of you."

5. "When you get into a serious, committed relationship and you're truly in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle. You're not sacrificing anything; you're just doing the right thing. You want to focus your energy on flourishing your relationship. It just causes problems and it doesn't make yourself grow with this person."

6. "I'm in the best relationship I've ever been in my entire life and she is worth way more than liking stupid pictures."

Ladies, I think he said it best. Liking a photo is cheating. Don't let your man convince you that you're being crazy if you ask him to not like other photos of a female in their bikini or their selfie.

You shouldn't even have to ask them not to do that. You're not crazy for wanting the person you love to respect you and your feelings. Don't get distracted by his words and remember those red flags. If he wants to like another girl's bikini photo so bad, then let him, but just let him know he will be single.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

187890

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

Graduation doesn't even feel like the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
