Would You Date An Instagram Model? I Asked A Dozen Dudes And They All Said No

Instagram models are beginning to set the standard for beauty. They seem to live their life for likes and #sponsored swag for free. At first guess, it seems fair to say that guys lust after these women but some don't seem to believe they would make for good girlfriends.

I interviewed over a dozen guys and got their reasoning on why they would not want an Instagram model as a girlfriend. Here's what they had to say:

Sexual prowess

"People see them as sexual images rather than an actual partner." - 20, single

Not every guy is comfortable with their partner's sexual identity on social platforms. If you like taking sexy selfies, do you until you find someone that accepts it.

Going down in the DM's

"So many guys would be trying to slide in her DMs and leaving crazy comments. I wouldn't want to deal with that." - 19, single

There are complete strangers with no boundaries trying to get with you and it's not your fault. With trust and the right guy, this will not stop him from getting to know you.

For everyone

"Hundreds of thousands of people would be looking at her and thinking dirty things." - 19, single

"I'm selfish when it comes to my girl." - 22, single

Some guys want a bit of exclusivity, but others don't care. You'll find the one that is comfortable with knowing there is a sea of options, and treat you better just because of that.

Scandal

"I don't like the thirst trapping they do. I like subtle." - 20, single

Get you a guy that double taps those thirst traps and leave you a cute little message in the comments.

Living in false reality

"They ask for too much and they think they're up there." - 21, single

"They aren't in touch with reality." - 21, single

Sure, this is a thought, but wait until they get to know the real you.

They are impractical

"They don't know how to conduct business. They have no analytical skills and logistics." - 20, single

Suddenly I feel attacked. I didn't know you had to have a major in business and logistics to be a proper girlfriend.

Pictures and more pictures

"Everything is a picture moment for them. I don't want her asking me to take pictures of her all the time." - 24, single

FAKE

"I like them real. I don't want my girl to have a fake ass and fake boobs." - 20, single

It is your body and you do what you want as you please. Not all men are fans of cosmetic transformations, but plenty don't care.

Her tab

"She's probably been run through by athletes and the whole music industry." - 20, taken

Guys are just as insecure as girls when it comes to thinking about their partners past. Get you somebody who is looking into the future and does not care about something as trivial as your tab.

Exposure

"I'm a low key dude and I like low key females." - 22, single

"Why would you date someone who shows the world every secret about them? It makes you look goofy." - 21, single

Their Intentions

"Most of them are looking for a sponsor or a leg up in the industry. I'm too broke for that." -22, single

Be a good judge of character, tell him your intentions—as should he.

 Long term quality

"Guys will date an Instagram baddie, but the thing is, they will not marry one." - 32, taken

Are women that know how to look good not marriage material?

"There is a point where the fun is over and you need to settle with exclusivity." - 32, taken

Again, a job is a job and the man that is for you will accept your career field.

 Only good for one thing

"They're hoes period. Well not all but 90 percent of them. There are not good odds so we can have sex but not date." - 22, taken

Don't worry, this guy has probably never dated an Instagram model. Beauty and personality have no relation.

 Hit or miss

"You see them on IG and think they are perfect then you meet in person and not so much." -19, single

Catfishing usually happens on dating apps, not Instagram, so no need to fret!

Instagram baddie or not, dating has less to do with where your money comes from and more to do with your qualities and what you bring to the table. Any guy who tries to date you, an Instagram model, knows what challenges he is up against and accepts them.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
