I have some friends on Instagram who never like my posts…except if I tag them in a picture we were all in. I’m worried they don’t really like me. For example, there was a friend I met at camp this summer. On the bus to camp, he kept putting his feet near mine and occasionally he would rub his foot over mine. He always included me when he was laughing with his friends. Idk I thought he was flirting. I made a video of camp and tagged him saying I missed the friends I made. He liked that but doesn’t like anything else. Does he really not like me and was pretending to be my friend? I’m scared these people are doing that…they always look so happy to see me in person tho. I also sent him a picture of a friendship quote in a direct message so we could chat, since he didn’t have a phone. He responded back a couple times, they were actually longer than most guys I’ve talked to, like he wanted to talk and it was like talking to a good friend. I asked a question about what he said. He never responded so I think he deleted it. Would it be ok to try to talk to him again? He’s been on Instagram a lot more. He always likes one of my friends pictures. I’m trying not to get a little jealous but I am. It made me mad to see them flirting this summer…one time he kept looking at me while talking to her though. He recently started coming to my church and I’m hoping he comes again. Should I try talking to him on Instagram or in person? I’m scared to talk to him when I see him, would he really have not liked me and pretended to want to be my friend? He treated me like one on the bus and at camp, so I don’t think he would be mean to me. He would also try to show off a lot and play with his shirt in front of me, plus try to brush his whole body against me. It felt nice. We also made some deep eye contact a lot and he would stare at me, and always look for me in a group. Does the ‘liking’on Instagram mean he doesn’t like me? I don’t understand it. I also follow my friend’s younger brother and he doesn’t like my pictures either. They’re nice and are friendly in person, so I don’t know what’s going on. He’s also acted like a friend. When were at a football game, my friend’s brother also kept staring at me and was happy to see me. Am I reading too much into this Instagram thing? If so, can you help me understand please? Thank you so much!! Lately I’ve been having really bad friend anxiety and doubting they really like me…I’m not the most outgoing person and am quieter, but I am sweet!

It just seems like they don’t care about my life when they don’t like my pictures. Also, the girl I went to camp with never requested to follow me on Instagram but is always so happy to see me at school and tells me to text her. She doesn’t respond sometimes

Honestly my opinion is just ignore social media and people’s habits on there. Like honestly who cares if they didn’t like a selfie or so? Doesn’t mean they’re not friends with you. Talk in real life, face to face and heart to heart. The thing is with social media is it doesn’t defy friendships. Your friends won’t be going through your whole feed liking everything. Phones and computers are a way to stay in touch but you’ll never have that real facial expression feel and what it feels like to be talking to someone and seeing their facial expressions and their body language. Things over phone gets so messed up. I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t let the internet defy you and your friendships. Society says it matters but what does God say?
