Here’s What Khloé Kardashian Thinks of Making a Relationship ‘Instagram Official’
Khloé Kardashian has no time for guys who are constantly glued to their phones. In a new post shared on her app, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reveals her dating dos and don’ts when it comes to bae and social media.
“I’ve never been someone who’s constantly on their phone, and I pride myself on that—especially in a relationship. It’s so important to be in the moment and present with the people you love! If I’m dating a guy who’s always on his phone, I will let them know it’s not cool,” Kardashian, who is currently rumored to be casually dating Trey Songz, begins. “Luckily, none of the men I’ve been with have been super active on social media.”
She recalls, “Only one guy tried to post about us and I straight-up told him, ‘This is a private relationship—we don’t need to broadcast everything!'”
For Kardashian, she also doesn’t like it when the dude she’s dating starts liking sexy photos of other women on Instagram. While guys may argue it’s completely innocent, the 32-year-old doesn’t see it that way.
“I think it is a big deal. It opens up your relationship to be misinterpreted; other people could see your guy liking sexy pictures and start talking, and it just causes unnecessary drama,” she writes. “I would never like a random dude’s photo out of respect for my significant other—you deserve the same in return!”
As for going “Instagram official,” Kardashian believes there’s absolutely no timeline to declaring your relationship on social media. (After all, she did manage to keep her entire relationship with James Harden off Instagram and Twitter!)
“This is so personal. Some people can be together for a week and it feels like a year. Posting pictures together on social media happens naturally. Some people can date for a year and still not feel comfortable with that,” she explains. “There’s no right or wrong time frame, but when you do make things public—whether it’s to 10 friends or 10 million followers—just know that you are opening up your relationship to other people’s opinions, which can cause problems. But I get it, people get excited and want to share their love! And that’s totally fine.”
