Why do guys put a picture of their girlfriend as the background on their phone?

Why do guys put their girlfriend as their phone background? I think it's kind of embarrassing that my boyfriend does this, but it's a little flattering as well. It's weird because I don't like seeing myself on his background, but I like knowing that I am. How many guys do this? Why do you do it?

  • My boyfriend does that. They do that because they enjoy constantly having a visual reminder of you throughout their day.

    I would say it's anything but embarrassing, more of a compliment. I love the idea that he cares for you so much he sort of wants you by his side even when you can't really be there in person.

  • I have my gf as my background because she is beautiful and I like looking at her face, simple as that.

  • I would do that. Or maybe like a picture of us together. That would be a serious mood lifter if I'm ever feeling down.

    • No it wouldn't it would be a romantic gesture letting the one you love know that there always on your mind. No guy is to tough to show a soft side to the girl they love it's not childish. It's loving.

  • Well, why not?

  • I've done it in the past, mainly as a motivation to quit smoking. Sounds like self-imposed pussywhipping lol. But now that I'm single, I have my background as some Facebook pic of my crush (creepy I'm sure)

  • I can see why people would do that, it reminds them that they have somebody and is a nice pick me up throughout the day. But I don't do that, in fact, my phone is pretty much intentionally void of any personal information.

  • A lot of guys I know do this and it's because they think their girlfriends a babe. They like looking at her and in their own way showing her off when she's not around.

  • Because they like looking at their significant other & being reminded of them... I almost always put my boyfriend (when I have one) as my background. I don't understand why you're not flattered lol.

    • Sorry I misread... I guess you are flattered. I just don't understand why you think it's weird lol

    • Show All
    • Oh... well that's you I guess lol

    • Yeah, apparently! 😁

  • my boyfriend has a naughty pic that I sent him as his background, I didn't know until the other day and I went crazy at him!

    • Oh no. That's kind of terrible! 😬 What happened?

    • he said it was fine, that no one else looks at his phone and it's got screen lock... I'm not too impressed!

    • Oh goodness! That still seems kind of risky even if he said that no one saw it!

  • My boyfriend has a picture of me as his background. . . it makes me happy to think he likes to be reminded of me every time he looks at his phone :)
