We know your relationship is shitty if your Instagram doesn’t pass the Bechdel Test
It doesn’t take a relationship expert
That friend who used to tag you in photos, but who you haven't heard from in weeks since she's always cooped up with her new boyfriend? She's moved into his apartment, or might as well have, and when you do see her, it seems like she genuinely no longer has other experiences to talk about?
Her Instagram doesn't pass the Bechdel test, and that's how you know she's having an awful time.
The Bechdel test is a famous test applied to movies and works of fiction, and in order to pass, there must be at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. Nearly half of movies can't stand up to it.
And while a test like this can't exactly translate to Instagram, the concept can.
If in a grid of six photos, if there isn't another photo of her with her girlfriends (that wasn't taken by her SO), she's probably dating the kind of guy who get's mad when she says she's going out.
For celebrities it might be different because they need to post photos of themselves being hotter than us, but I'm legally not allowed to out random girls' boring love lives on Instagram, so you'll have to do some digging of your own.
Not that you don't already have at least three names in mind.
Sure, it's been deleted since, but we kept the evidence.
“I LOVE YOU KARLIE! You’re such an exquisite person, always trying to make things better for others. Every day I’m inspired by how giving, loving, and thoughtful you are. Happy 24th Birthday!!!” the caption read. Calvin's face, distracting in the forefront.
Maybe the rest of us are just cynical and lonely, but for the most part even we can appreciate a well thought out couple gram when it drops — just as long as there are some other photos sprinkled between.
There's pretty much nothing less cool, or telling, than an Insta-grid packed with mushy posts and flowers.
We get it, you ditched all off your friends.
If he does any of these things, he’s SO into you
All the signs are there

It can sometimes seem impossible to know when a guy likes you. There are so many signs a guy likes you if you pay close attention to his behavior, but when a guy makes it known, we're left pretty speechless, floored and in shock that someone is that genuinely into us.Our insecurities can be so…
