    It wouldn’t be okay with me. And like wolfeyes it would be SO lame & corny, cringe city.

    But what matters is if it’s okay with you or not.

    I think the bigger issue here is that you feel a need to track what he’s “liking” online. With my husband I don’t care at all what he looks at or clicks like on, Ive never even thought of being curious about this as I trust him completely. But with my ex, it was definitely something I did and that relationship was completely unhealthy and he ended up being a narcissist, it was a really horrible and traumatic time. So I’d think about why you even know what he “likes” online and why this is such a big deal to you. 

    As for myself on social media, if i like something, i “like” it, I don’t do it so that people see or to support anyone, I just click it, it’s just not a big deal. I “like” things all the time, really means nothing.

    You don’t have to insta-stalk someone to see what they like show up in your explore feed. Half the pictures I click on there have already been “liked” by someone on my friends list (follow list?) and it will say “Liked by soandso” under the photo. 

    “[The explore tab] evolved to become tailored for each user. As an Instagram spokesperson told Mashable at the time of this change “We’ll show you a variety of content that people you follow have liked, as well as content that is trending in the Instagram community.””

    So yeah, it can just show up based on what other people like and it SHOWS if someone on your list has liked it. 

    Anyways, I too find it disrespectful. There’s looking and then LOOKING. I don’t need to see my husband oogling some hot chick walking down the street, nor do I need to see him “liking” sexy pictures of other women.

    ladyjane123 :  its only ok if he is ok with you making blatantly sexy instagram posts and collecting up the likes yourself. If he gets mad about that but wants you to be cool with him being a consumer of the same kind if pictures then he’s a hypocrite. I think a spite account on Instagram of recreations of ever sexy photo your boyfriend/fiance/husband likes would be hilarious and I’d follow it

    It has literally never once occurred to me to go look at what my husband is liking on IG. I’m going to go look now.

    Update: This involves a LOT of scrolling, unless I’m doing it wrong. Also… I now want to scroll for HOURS and see what EVERYONE is liking. 😛

    To answer your question: My husband and I are both gym rats. So if I saw that he had liked a few fitgirls’ photos, I wouldn’t mind. We actually discuss the physiques of some of the girls at our gym, in relation to mine. He might point out an exercise he sees a girl doing that seems to have developed her muscles in an area he knows I want definition, for instance. So I know he looks at women mostly from a physique standpoint, as I do men. But if I found that he regularly goes to, like, porn stars profiles and likes a LOT of smutty photos? That would annoy me. Mainly because of the sheer volume of time it would betray that he is spending gawking at these women. It would make me feel icky, like he’s objectifying women. It would feel disrespectful to woman-kind, not me in particular.
