Instagram? I doubt the breakups were any uglier than the hookups.

But how is the phone sex?

Seattle huh, did not see that coming...

No the other thing I knew before I clicked the link.

I knew from the moment I saw the blurry, out-of-focus, washed-out instagram of her organic meal at the gastropub that she would be mine forever.

Subby's a whore!

/Have we broken up now?
 
2013-02-14 04:28:31 PM
Yeah, what is the deal with the Instagram?

Why do people want discolored photos?

Wait, they're hipsters?

ICK.  I do not want to see that nasty biatch naked.

She sounded like a 12 year old girl, then it got all stabby.

I'm having one of the latter right now, today.  awesome!

I guess grunge fashion never died in the Pacific NW.

Or rather there was never much fashion up there to begin with.

So what? I fell in love through giraffefancier.com

Duh.  It said Instagram right in the title.

I am more disturbed by the awful square cropping of instragram or the fact they have like 1 black and white filter and like a bazillion 1970s bad color filters.
 
2013-02-14 05:14:16 PM
These people sound absolutely unbearable. I'm glad they found each other rather than inflicting themselves on decent people.

Poloroid made an entire business out of discolored photos for decades.

CSB POWERS ACTIVATE !

My roomie got Catfished by some Instagram chick last month. Every picture she posted of herself was a decade or more old. This crazy ho drove from Cali to TX and what showed up was clearly not what was advertised.

Because nostalgia.

Yeah, they had no interest in each other outside of their physical qualities.  But hey, it's the American way!

Yo dawg! I heard you like bullshiat, so you got Instagram to txt bullshiat while you read bullshiat while you drown in bullshiat.

It isn't fashion. It's the way we have always dressed. It is just the rest of the US that decided to copy us.

I think it's so funny how Fark hates Instagram even more than Facebook. I love Instagram more than Facebook. Also, I think this story is really cute.

My favorite follows on Instagram? My friends, National Geographic, and bands. Bands are surprisingly fun to follow. The guy from Grizzly Bear takes really great photos and it's like going on tour with them. Recently they were in Burma and it looked amazing. I really love how Instagram is like a window into somebody's life.


I can't wait to see how much Fark hates Vine if it gets big....
 
2013-02-14 07:22:57 PM
Again, I love that people like this have a uniform so I can spot them before I waste any time actually talking to them.

So thanks, douches!

How can anyone "fall in love" with someone they haven't met? Doesn't compute.

They didn't.

On second thought:   most people do.

"I got to know imagine a lot about him just through his photos."

OK, really, none of the couples in TFA did anything stupid.  They took their time, easing into increasing levels of intimacy.  One couple's still in  the email phase.

Something is going to be the first thing that catches your eye.  That something will be special to you if the relationship blossoms.  Nothing odd about it being Instagram.

Whoa one of my friends just broke up with his girlfriend and it is a Facebook mess. Actually, he doesn't do anything but she updates her status about how much she is crying and how you can't trust people and all kinds of things. At one point she changed her profile pictures BACK to pictures as them as a couple and posted about how she loved him. But then went back to photos of her and her friends and more posts about how she learned so much about people and you could never trust em.

I LIVE FOR THIS DRAMA. SO please, more ugly breakups. Plus, I love drinking with really depressed post-breakup people.

/female and pathetic.

I have you Farky'd as "Positive influence on young women." Was that wrong? Was I being sarcastic when I wrote that? I can't remember.

Hah, well I have no drama in my life so when someone close to me does have drama I am pretty curious about what is going on in their possibly crazy head.  I hope you were being serious because that is the best Fark compliment I have ever received.
