This Woman Is Being Told To Dump Her BF After Sharing His Instagram Caption

This point was rather cogently proven by a young woman who took to Twitter on Monday to share the very different captions that she and her boyfriend wrote about the same picture.

#1 Isabella Koval tweeted a side-by-side comparison of the different captions that she and her boyfriend wrote for the same photo on Instagram.

#2 Koval captioned the photo, “Always a blast [with] my bff.” —

Her boyfriend captioned it, “Sitting here trying to explain football to this uncultured swine.”

Justin’s caption said: “sitting here trying to explain football to this uncultured swine.”

“My post vs my boyfriends,” wrote Isabella on Twitter, oblivious to what was about to unfold.

To Koval’s surprise, her post instantly went viral, racking up over 41,000 retweets and 195,000 likes.

#4 The biggest response that Isabella got, however, was more of the same.

Boyfriends and girlfriends everywhere took to Twitter to share their own hilarious Instagram captions.

#5 “Sean choked on a piece of cheese stuffed crust the other day and almost died, I’m glad he didn’t” vs. “Mary eats ass.”

#6 “Because of you, I smile a little bigger and laugh a little longer” vs. “Wizard kelly with the Sky Hook”.

#7 “My favorite person” vs. “Ravioli ravioli give me the formuoli.”

#8 “Thanks for being the best date I could’ve asked for” vs. “Meat sticks or nah?”

#9 And “I like green and dis boi” vs. “Some green shit.”

#10 She told BuzzFeed News that she’s getting all sorts of DMs, mostly from people telling her to dump him.

#11 Koval even told BuzzFeed that her boyfriend “rarely posts on any social media.”

“I’m always telling him he should post more,” she added.

#12 Ultimately, most of the reactions are people saying things like “true love” and “relationship goals”.

#13 While these side-by-side comparisons are hilarious.

They’re also not that surprising, given society’s prevailing gender norms that socialize men to withhold their emotions.

#14 Add to that the fact that Instagram’s user base tends to skew female.

According to comScore, a company that measures Internet traffic, 58% of Instagram’s 108 million unique visitors were women and 42% were men as of April 2016, The Atlantic reported last year.

#15 Research has also found that women tend to spend more time staging “perfect” posts on Instagram

whereas men don’t find this effort to be “worth the pressure that comes with it.”

#16 Of course, this is by no means a conclusive finding on how men and women use Instagram.

Still, it’s interesting that all the women in this story wrote sentimental captions that ostensibly took more time and effort while their boyfriends opted for more tongue-in-cheek one-liners.
