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

Instagram models seem to have it all, but these guys are not impressed.

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:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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

11. 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.

12.  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.

13.  Only good for one thing

"They're hoes, period. Well not all but 90% 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.

14.  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.

5 Questions To Ask Yourself When You're On The Fence With A Guy

Is he worth it?

views

Whether you're contemplating if you want to continue your fling with a guy or contemplating breaking up with your boyfriend, there are always questions we're asking ourselves. Ranging from "is this right of me?" to "is this what will make me happy?" But if you are really sitting on the fence and don't know what to do next, check out these five questions you need to ask yourself if you're torn on what to do.

1. Do I want long term or short term?

This is a huge question to ask. If you're looking to settle down for a while, your guy may not want that. And it could always be the other way around as well. Make sure to decipher this with him so you both know what you want and no one gets a broken heart.

2. Can I see myself marrying this person?

I know this is a bold question to ask, especially if you're not dating. But really thinking about if you can see yourself with them for a long time can make it or break it. But say you're dating and you're on the fence of deciding you want to break up with them or not, think about if you can see yourself saying "I do" to them, and if you can't, let him go.

3. Can I see myself living with them/how do they live?

I've seen many people get engaged and move in together and later call it quits due to the way their partner lived. If you've been getting to know your guy for a while now and notices he lives like a pig, you may have to wonder if you'd be cleaning up those messes in the future.

4. How do they make me feel?

This question in a no brainer. If they make you feel bad, why even question continuing into the relationship.

5. Are they worth it?

Is he worth it? I know I have had some experiences when I was on the fence with a couple of guys and I've had to ask myself the same question. And when I'd question if he was worth it or not, my gut feeling always came out right. If you're looking to keep him around, always ask yourself if he's worth it.

Girls, You NEED To Understand That Fuckboy Texting You ‘wyd’ 24/7 Will Never Give You A 24 Karat Ring

I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you his wife.

There are five unofficial steps of hookup culture: Find a guy. Get to know him a little bit, but not too much (because you have to keep "boundaries," remember?) Make a pact to keep things "casual" and promise to still be "friends" with each other. Then, hookup with him. And keep hooking up with him without any emotional attachment — just over and over again and never expect anything more.

From a birds eye view, hookup culture seems so harmless. I mean, what's more convenient than having a booty call at your doorstep with the swipe of a screen? When you want to hook up, all you have to do is shoot that 2 a.m. "U Up?" text.

Hell, I even wrote a whole article about the perfect FWB situation.

Yet suddenly—here I am, Elle Hong, resident "Uncuffed" writer on Swoon and self proclaimed fuckgirl who glorifies hookup culture above anything else, catching feelings and falling for the wrong guys just like any other girl out in the world.

Consider this blasphemy. Or maybe I'm just dying to make a confession.

A confession that I, too, have experienced the feeling of wondering why I was never enough for the guys I hooked up with. Why they never chose me over the girls they would eventually form serious relationships with and why to them I only was nothing more than a casual hookup.

So, I thought about it. I critically analyzed it. I "Aristotle-d" my way into trying to find an answer behind the impossible question of wondering why I was never considered to be anything more. Over the past few weeks, it essentially became my new research topic and now, I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you into wifey material. Here's why.

First and foremost: Guys usually (but not always) choose to hookup with girls who they don't see as anything more.

Now, keep in mind I'm not saying that guys will NEVER fall in love with the girls they hookup with because it can happen. It's life. Life is unpredictable. No doubt, people have fallen in love on Tinder and married a random match who just happened to become The One. But we all know what Tinder is really for. Generally speaking, guys will seek random hookups with the types of girls they think are "easy" and if they're desperate enough, it's definitely not going to be someone they view as their future wife.

If he thinks you're cute, you're within 10 miles radius and you can hold a conversation, it doesn't matter what your annual salary is or how many siblings you got—he wants one thing and it's to get you in bed. And until a guys find this girl who captures his heart and inevitably makes him want to settle, he's going to go around hooking up with random girls left and right. So in this case, it's not your fault. You're just with the wrong type of guy who only thinks of you as his sexual conquest.

See also: Guys want to settle with girls that don't go around hooking up with other people.

Ironic as hell because I just talked about why guys would never want to settle, period. But think about it—guys are humans with rational thoughts and animalistic desires. When they find their territory, they mark it. Once he finds a girl who is the one, he never wants to let her go. And he never wants to see that girl be with another guy or god forbid, go around hooking up with other guys. So here's the moral of the story to get my point across: I hate to break it to you, but bragging about how many other guys you're f*cking outside of your current FWB situationship isn't going to help develop the relationship any further.

Finally: A girl's "hoe phase" might seem empowering but for guys they see it as a threat.

Thanks to the wonderful millennial encyclopedia that we call Urban Dictionary, we have a definition behind this certain life style: A phase in life which occurs when a girl goes around social settings exploring herself, committing promiscuous acts and connecting with random people. For girls, it seems pretty damn empowering, doesn't it? For us it's a chance to let loose, to live a lil bit more and to run around as independent women. Nothing wrong with that of course.

But for guys to perceive this type of lifestyle, they see it as a threat which could arise if they form a relationship with you. It's simple logic here. A girl who's in her "hoe phase" is more likely to be unfaithful since they're always out and about with this person and that person. Put it this way: a guy doesn't care if you're a hoe—but he only wants you to be HIS hoe and not everyone else's. So you might think that it's a great way to express yourself and to enjoy your college years, but keep in mind that it could possibly be holding you back from taking the next step with your casual FWB.
