This Girl Didn’t Notice An Embarrassing Detail On Her Insta Story Until Her Crush Hilariously Pointed It Out

Our generation is so used to taking pictures of nearly everything (seriously, is there anything I don’t try to capture on camera?) that sometimes we forget what’s actually within the frame. Let’s just say it’s pretty easy to send a photo to somebody without fully realizing what’s in the background, which can lead to some pretty awkward conversations later on.

Twitter user Lolita didn’t think much of it when she added a picture of her laptop to her Instagram story. Honestly, the whole thing looks harmless enough.

Except one guy did catch her and it got, uh, kind of awkward.

Or maybe really awkward, since he decided to leave her on read.

Let’s just say that if Lolita was hoping it’d go anywhere with him, the chances are pretty slim now.

But even though admitting why you put tape over your camera might seem kind of awkward, it’s not completely weird if you ask me. I mean, have you ever watched Black Mirror? There’s an entire episode about this, and it’s terrifying! Better safe than sorry, right?

Lolita is definitely not alone when it comes to her paranoia.

Honestly, if any guy makes you feel like you’re crazy for being worried about your camera, you can do better.

So maybe she’s not going to hear from that guy again. But hey, someday we’ll all meet our perfect conspiracy theory-loving soulmates and interactions like these will never matter again. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
