This world is weird, isn’t it? We’re evolving into a generation wherein we’re using technology to capture not just moments but uncanny, weird moments that could be laughed upon later. We’re not just self-obsessed; we’re obsessed with taking our own pictures.
And talking of pictures, of course, how could we forget “selfies” and the fact that our boyfriends love keeping our weird selfies.
Selfies don’t just capture moments and transform them into memories, but they also express art, self-absorption, and social connection (between the people involved in the selfie) - these are the reasons why selfies are the most popular and “in” thing right now. In fact, the word “selfie” is now included in the Oxford Dictionary.
Of course, one reason our boys ask for our selfies is to preserve our pictures on their phones or other gadgets in order to admire us or cherish the little activities we do. After all, these are the little things that matter at the end of the day. So yes, the underlying fact behind them asking for our pictures is definitely love. And love always wins, right?
Here are ten weird selfies that boyfriends demand from their girlfriends. Check out if you have also clicked such weird selfies for your boyfriend.
1. Selfie wearing his gifted dress
When your boyfriend asks for a selfie wearing his gifted dress, he is simply telling you how much he loves you. He wants to know how you look in the dress that he so carefully picked out for you (after a lot of brainstorming, mind you!). He wants to see if it fits you as perfectly as he has imagined it in his head, whether the color suits you beautifully or not, and how ravishing you look. He needs to know the A–Z of it.
2. Selfie with friends
Yes, we know boyfriends usually don’t like to hear about their girls’ friends, but they sure want to know how the people you constantly talk about look like! Yep, weird, we know. Guys have this thing where when you talk about your friends, they want to have a clear picture of who or what you are talking about. Thus, they need a face in order to paint that picture in their mind (you know what we mean).
3. Sleeping selfie
Yes, a sleeping selfie! Because people look the cutest when they sleep. Don’t you agree? Your boyfriend would love to swoon over your cuteness while you sleep (or pretend to) and keep adoring the picture, forever!
4. Selfie at weird places
From the bathroom (which is not so weird now, btw) to the salon, sometimes boys demand weird photos for reasons unknown to mankind.
5. Selfie while eating
Well, the purpose of asking for a selfie while eating is not just to know what you are eating but also to ensure that you are eating right. This is another way of saying that he cares about you. It might be weird, but deep down you want to reciprocate, too.
6. Selfie with her ex
Too weird to be true, but guys do ask their girls for selfies with their exes, for reasons, again, unknown. Let’s just say they are inquisitive of your past life too and want to know you front and back. Also, he needs to know whether your ex was more handsome than he is (he prays that the odds are in his favor and not your ex's) and how you used to pose with him, the comfort level you had with each other, etc.
7. Working selfie/office selfie
As much as your office would prohibit you to take pictures during working hours, your guy would desperately demand it from you. Well, sometimes all they want is to be informed of your whereabouts.
8. With your sleeping buddy (teddy bear!)
It’s not just you who finds soft toys, or teddy bears to be precise, cute. Your guy also finds you and your fluffy friend together equally cute, and a selfie with it is just like an explosion of cuteness (you get the feel, don’t you?).
9. Selfie with your pets
As weird as it sounds, we don’t know why boys do that, but well, they just do, you know? Some possible reasons are that a pet selfie is so true to reality, is loaded with cuteness, and paints a picture of loyalty (especially if it’s a dog).
Moreover, you’re the happiest around your pet, aren’t you? So this particular selfie demonstrates your real happiness and your natural looks - some of the things that he craves to see.
And to top them all, without a doubt the weirdest of all, nudes are the most common and irritating selfies that boyfriends demand from their girlfriends.
Why, just why? In order to satisfy their needs? Well, it’s difficult to say. No matter how much your guy loves you, if you’ve been together for a long time and are comfortable with each other, he will ask you to send him nudes, you in bikinis, or in any sexy clothing. The simplest way to arouse them is by showing some skin, something appealing. Grow up boys!
But because it’s secretive, not common to look at, intimate, and thus sexual for the both of you, sending them nudes can also strengthen your bond and take the trust that you have for each other to a whole new level. Boys take pride in the fact that they have earned your trust. Hah! Stupid, isn’t it?
