We want people to be happy and proud of them selfies.

But, there can be a dark side to the selfie habit.

Those same people reported having more conflict with their partners. They said they were fighting about attention other people paid to their online photos.

Sounds like someone's jealous. The authors of the study say when one partner frequently post attractive selfies, the other may feel threatened or jealous.

This may may lead to them monitoring the other's feed. AKA Insta-stalking, which no one has ever done and felt better for.

Due to the nature of the study, the authors can't say for sure if posting on Instagram caused relationship insecurity.

I had a boyfriend who hated when I posted selfies. So I kept posting and found a new boyfriend.
