We're all addicted to social media. Who isn't constantly on their phones or laptops checking things like Instagram and Twitter? A big aspect of social media is sharing pictures with your followers. This often includes the mirror shots or selfies, but some people take it a step further. More and more people are sharing photos of themselves I revealing clothing – or no clothing at all, in some cases. Now, we have no problem with this. If you feel that you look good and want to show yourself off, so be it. We do wonder, though: What if you're dating someone? If you're in a relationship, does your partner care that you are sharing revealing photographs online?
The answer to this question depends on your partner. If your partner is more conservative and feels that your body is for their eyes only, they'll feel like it's disrespectful of you to share revealing pictures of yourself with people online. They may feel that you are trying to get attention from other guys/girls, or that you don't feel validated enough by the attention they give you in private.
On the flipside, if your partner is more progressive and open-minded, they're likely to be totally okay with it. They may feel that posting these pictures is not disrespectful and that it boosts your confidence. On both sides, your partner should want you to feel good about yourself. If you need to post pictures of yourself online to feel good about yourself, it may be a problem that requires some self-reflection. If you do it just every once in a while because you feel really proud of a certain picture or the way you look in it and it makes you feel confident to share it, then that is fine. If you have a partner who is uncomfortable with you doing this, you need to have a discussion about it and either reach a compromise or go your separate ways. In the end, you want to be in a relationship where both people feel good about themselves, but both people also feel respected and secure.
