same reason as guys who take so many selfies


and do you notice the girls who don't take many selfies/take none?

I don't really associate with boys or girls who take a lot of selfies though. "unfollow" on fb is pretty great for this since you're still friends but don't have to see their shit

the most prolific selfie friend I've head was a guy who all he does is gym and would put up pics like once per hour, and I don't think he ever does anything else other than work out and browse fitness topics online (he's a personal trainer too so if he's not talking about his workout, it's about someone else's). only friends with the guy because we were alright in school and he's not really a bad guy outside of the narcissism.
O.K.

Guys don't get to complain about girls' selfies until guys stop taking and sending unsolicited dick pics. Work on your own problems first.

What I've always wanted to know is why ten years ago you couldn't even take a picture of a girl because any time you pointed a camera on her she'd look away and cover her face while all the dudes didn't give a shit.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

It's different when they are the ones taking the pics though. I know girls that will take like 40 or more pics so they can get the prefect selfie to post on facebook or where ever. Someone else taking the pic you only get one maybe two shots unless it's like pros taking pictures.

Who cares?

Like I think it's dumb, but so what? I'm sure I do things other people think are dumb, but they're fun, or they make me feel good about myself, or for some other reason they improve my experience in some fashion. As long as they're not hurting anyone, why does it matter?

Guys, you don't get to complain about our selfies when women are still primarily valued on the basis of looks. You can't hold up the societal idea that women are to be judged by appearance, and then complain that some women want to show their appearance off.

...But honestly, i take a bunch because I'm insecure about my appearance and want some kind of reassurance that i look alright. I just don't tend to share them with other people.
#35
Narcissism, vanity, the need for constant validation in an insecure society that depends on acceptance on social media to maintain their self esteem.

I call it the "look at me" syndrome.

the only real issue i have with selfies are duckface pictures and selfie sticks, but those two are kind of their own separate things.

even "real issue" sounds too harsh.

minor annoyance maybe?
