How The “My Post vs My Boyfriend’s Post” Instagram Trend Started

Instagram

The hardest part of an Instagram upload is probably coming up with cool captions. But if you are having trouble with it, here’s an idea for people who are in a relationship. Lately Instagrammers have been using captions to hilariously highlight gender differences within a couple and all of this started because of a football game.

Isabella Koval posted a picture on Instagram and added the caption “Always a blast [with] my bff.” Then her boyfriend Justin uploaded the same picture to his account but with a completely different caption: “Sitting here trying to explain football to this uncultured swine.” Then, Isabella posted a side-by-side comparison of their posts on Twitter.

“My boyfriend rarely posts on any social media and I’m always telling him he should post more,” Isabella told BuzzFeed. “So Saturday we went to the game, and I know nothing about football, and he was trying to explain the game to me, but I was too into my food.”

People thought the caption was insulting, but the lady assured them it was a joke. “People are telling me to dump him, [but] everyone that knows us thinks those comments are hilarious.”

Her tweet went viral and other couples soon started doing the same.

Isabella Koval and Justin are the couple responsible for the fresh “My post vs my boyfriend’s post” internet trend.
