Girlfriends and boyfriends of Instagram are sharing their different captions for the same photo
If you've ever been in a heterosexual relationship, you'll be aware that women express their love in a very different manner to men. Now, of course there are exceptions, but in the majority of cases, women tend to be more affectionate than their boyfriends. They're also more into doing conventionally "romantic" activities, which they then proceed to document on social media, with the addition of a litany of love-heart emojis, naturally.
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.
"My post vs. my boyfriends", Isabella wrote, before sharing two screenshots of the same photo.
The two photos were taken from the couple's respective Instagram accounts and Isabella's version read, "Always a blast [with] my bff", whilst Justin's was rather different in tone... "Sitting here trying to explain football to this uncultured swine," he wrote.
Obviously, Justin's caption was intended to be humorous, but as we know, there are some people on the Internet who are in serious need of a funny bone.
Speaking to Buzzfeed News, Isabelle revealed that she was rather surprised by people's reaction to Justin's caption. "People were telling me to dump him," she said. "Everyone that knows us thinks those comments are hilarious".
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.
And some of them were pure gold:
"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."
"Because of you, I smile a little bigger and laugh a little longer" vs. "Wizard kelly with the Sky Hook".
"My favorite person" vs. "Ravioli ravioli give me the formuoli."
"Thanks for being the best date I could've asked for" vs. "Meat sticks or nah?"
And "I like green and dis boi" vs. "Some green shit"
Isabella later provided the backstory to her and Justin's hilarious Instagram posts:
"My boyfriend rarely posts on any social media and I’m always telling him he should post more [...] So Saturday we went to the game, and I know nothing about football, and he was trying to explain the game to me, but I was too into my food."
She added that Justin didn't even know that she had posted their posts on Twitter, "It was really unexpected; when he saw our posts side by side he thought it was hilarious, but really didn't think anything of it until I pointed out," she wrote.
Isabella and Justin sure did have a great time reading through everyone else's side-splitting captions, "Seeing all the other couples tagging each other was a trip," she added.
As cute as this is, I want to know how these guys are all getting so many likes on their posts, share the secret!
