Because of my slight addiction to Instagram, I’ve learned that many guys comment on girl’s Instagram pictures. Some of them are harmless, even sweet, but others are nasty and vomit-worthy. Please don’t be the latter. Don’t be gross. That’s why I’m here to help you learn how to comment on a girl’s picture on Instagram.
Who doesn’t love Instagram? Seriously, I spend 90% of my day on Instagram. Actually, if we’re being honest, I probably spend way too much time on Instagram. Between posting for my blog, returning DM’s, replying to comments, and just general scrolling through my feed, I’m ALWAYS on Instagram.
Not that I get a lot of guys commenting on my Instagram posts, because I’m not that cool, but like… I have cool friends? Guys comment on their stuff all the time. Personally, I’m lucky if my mom comments on my Instagram posts. Maybe one day I’ll be cool enough to get Instagram comments, but today is definitely not the day. But hey, that’s okay, I can help you out anyway.
How to comment on a girl’s picture on Instagram
Here it is dudes, the step-by-step tutorial you’ve been waiting for – How to get babes via Instagram, and not just get “blocked.” If you’re trying to figure how to comment on a girl’s picture on Instagram, your time has come, you’re officially about to peak in life. Are you ready for all the Instagram replies!?
#1 Just be cool. Word of advice? Stop trying so hard! You look hella’ thirsty, and no girl is going to reply to your nasty comment. Just be cool, man.
I have a couple of guy friends that comment on my Instagram posts, and they just comment fun emojis sometimes, or things like “Killin’ it, girl.” It’s just fun and cute. You don’t have to turn into some creep with a porn stash, okay? Relax. [Read: How to get your crush to notice you and like you back]
#2 Be her friend. If you are constantly just trying to get her in bed, she’s not going to be cool with you, trust me. Be her friend. Have a real conversation with her once in a while, not just comments on her Instagram posts.
#3 “Like” her posts too. If you just “like” her posts every now and then, instead of commenting, she’ll think you’re a lot less creepy, and a lot more like a supportive and cool guy. This is key. Again, don’t be thirsty.
#4 Make sure your account is active as well. If you never post on your own account, but comment on her posts every day, you’re going to come off as creepy. Post a photo of your dog, or a meal you are eating. Be like a true millennial and take a selfie with the dog filter. Whatever it is–be active on your own profile too!
#5 Follow her account. It’s almost two decades into the new century, so an Instagram follow means a lot more than it used to. If you follow her account, she is going to notice you. This means that when you comment on her picture she is REALLY going to notice you. This just says that you are interested in what she has to say, or rather, what she has to post.
#6 Don’t be a perv. Just straight up. Don’t be gross. My friend once posted a cute photo from New Years Eve, and she was all glammed out in heels and her beautiful dress, and she was sitting on a stool. Anyway, some gross guy commented on it and said “I wish I was that stool.” DON’T DO THAT. Oh my goodness, so nasty.
#7 Less is more. You don’t need to express your undying love for this girl on her Instagram post, alright? If you want to know how to comment on a girl’s picture on Instagram, just use some cute emoji and a couple short punchy words. Keep it simple, guys.
#8 Make connections. If you have been following her for a long time, then you’ll notice trends in her posts. Maybe she posts a lot of photos with her dog, or with her favorite sweater on. Comment on these things.
It shows that you actually pay attention to her content, and it feels very friendly. She will feel inclined to reply to your comment because you are showing a real interest in her life. Girls love that!
#9 Don’t be thirsty. She’s not going to be interested in you if you throw yourself at her. Don’t say things like “I need you” or “damn, marry me,” because that is just incredibly juvenile. Really, teenagers make comments like that. You’re a grown man, it’s time to step up your game a little bit, don’t you think?
#10 Comment on more than just selfies. Let’s play the long game here. If you are just commenting on her selfies, that sends a message that you are only interested in her looks. Comment on those pooch pics, and photos of her meal last night. Be INTERESTING, and she will reply to your comment, I swear!
#11 Be realistic. Don’t try and get the attention of Kim Kardashian on Instagram, because um… GOOD LUCK. I’m sorry to break the bad news to you, but that lady gets millions of comments on her posts DAILY, so no matter how calm, cool, and collected you are on her Instagram feed, she likely is not going to notice your comment. It sucks, I know. Wouldn’t it be nice to be noticed!? Yeah, I feel yah, dudes. [Read: Don’t let these unrealistic expectations ruin your love life]
#12 Be consistent. Comment on a lot of her stuff. Maybe she won’t reply the first couple of times, but keep commenting. I mean, don’t get pushy because that’s not cute, and she’s really not going to respond to that. But make sure she notices you. Tell her she’s cute and that her outfit is bomb, and all of the nice and NOT CREEPY things.[Read: How to tell a girl you like her without seeming creepy]
Learning how to comment on a girl’s picture on Instagram is tricky business. You can come off as a creep and a perv, and you could end up blocked entirely. OR, you could get a date.
