I'm in a bit of a predicament.

My girlfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half now and for the most part, things have gone wonderful. However, every now and then, something pops up and I just don't understand why it bothers her so much. This "thing" is social media. I follow other girls on a couple of social media platforms and I like their posts from time to time. Whether that girl happens to be someone I knew in high school or a celebrity, it makes my girlfriend extremely unhappy. She feels that if I truly loved her, I wouldn't feel like I need to look at other girls on Instagram, Tik Tok or any other social media platform. What she doesn't seem to understand is that when I follow a girl on instagram or I like their photo I mean nothing by it. It doesn't mean I like them or want to be in a relationship with them, I'm simply acknowledging the fact I've seen their picture(s). I don't think about it, I just kind of do it you know? Is what I'm doing wrong? Should I stop liking girls' posts to appease her? Why is she upset? I truly don't understand why this is making her so mad. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

Hmm, this seems like she doesn't trust you I'm afraid. I don't know quite how best to respond to this - you've talked to her about it and she doesn't seem to believe you don't care about the girls who's pictures you 'liked' (in the social media sense).

One idea that might work is to show her your social media feed and make it clear you aren't actively seeking these pictures out. Additionally, maybe offer to let her see your messages to prove you aren't conspiring with them.

I would say lack of trust isn't necessarily a relationship killer yet, if you can convince her to build up her trust in you. Has see been betrayed or let down before in previous relationships?

I don't think I've given her any reason to not trust me. I've never cheated on her and I have no reputation as this is the first relationship I've ever been in. I'm fully committed to what her and I have and I've made that very clear. I don't know what else I have to do.
