8 Times Girlfriends And Boyfriends Shared The Same Images On Instagram, But Created Absolutely Different Captions

Coming up with cool Instagram captions is probably the hardest part of an upload. If you’re also having trouble with it, here’s an idea (sorry forever-alone people, it only works if you’re in a relationship). Lately, Instagrammers have been using captions to hilariously highlight gender differences within a couple, and everything started because of a single football game.

Isabella Koval has posted a photo to Instagram, captioning it “Always a blast [with] my bff.” Her boyfriend Justin uploaded the same photo to his account, but wrote something different: “sitting here trying to explain football to this uncultured swine.” Isabella then posted a side-by-side comparison of their posts to her Twitter and all hell broke loose.

“My boyfriend rarely posts on any social media and I’m always telling him he should post more,” Isabella told BuzzFeed. “So Saturday we went to the game, and I know nothing about football, and he was trying to explain the game to me, but I was too into my food.” Some people thought Justin’s caption was insulting. The lady, however, assured it was a joke. “People are telling me to dump him, [but] everyone that knows us thinks those comments are hilarious.”

Koval’s tweet went viral, reaching nearly 200K likes and over 42K retweets. Soon, other couples started doing the same and a unique “My post vs my boyfriend’s post” meme was born. Scroll down for the funny images and let us know if you think the whole thing is innocent or hurtful.

Studies show, the couples who flex the hardest on social media, and who make the most declarative statements of love and affection are actually the weakest couples, lacking trust and security in their relationships. the couples with a very small social media presence tend to be the most happy. I would say there's a little bit of truth behind both captions. But if as a couple you need social media to validate your relationship.... odds are, it ain't gonna last.

Knew a girl like this and frankly, I don't care for the must post all on social media, unless I want to share my art and silly dogs. Interactions are more intimate than social media validations.

Maybe I'm old, but I honestly don't understand a lot of this lingo.
