This latest dating trend is really easy to be guilty of. All it takes is a mutual follow on social media between you and your crush, and you’re well on your way. All it takes is a little investigating – and let’s be real, you’ve probably already done that much naturally. The second you and your crush follow each other, it’s stalking time. And then it’s all downhill from there.
Instagrandstanding is when you’ve tailored a post or two on your Instagram to get that one like you really want – the one from your crush. Maybe you’ll quote a song from their favorite musician in the caption. Or maybe you’ll tag yourself at their favorite restaurant. It’s really just a matter of paying attention to the things THEY post, and making your posts match accordingly. But in a well-calculated, non-creepy way, of course.
Honestly, Instagrandstanding can be a powerful tool in the right hands. If you do it tastefully, you actually might be able to strike up a real conversation with bae. With that in mind, I'm not hating on this dating trend. I only ask that you use your powers wisely!
