Why do so many people takes selfies in the bathroom?

I don't get it. Don't they have a mirror in their bedroom? -_- It really annoys me whenever a guy/girl post their bathroom selfies on Social Networking Sites. Some people don't even put toilet seat lud down before taking selfies, lol. It's bit.. tacky

  • Se7en reasons why people takes selfies in the bathroom :-
    ☻Not everyone is rich like you :/
    ☻Far better lightning ✨
    ☻It is more personal place. No disturbance.🙅
    ☻Full length mirror. 🙆
    ☻We want to show the Apple logo, we need mirror for that. 🍎
    ☻Kill the boredom. Some people don't go there to take selfies. It is Twist of Fate.💩
    ☻Easy access to water and shit to clean the face. 💧 (shit = random things. Not the ones in background) :P

  • I don't take photos in the bathroom, but this is the best idea I can come up with for why some people do it. I think it's just usually where the biggest mirror (and maybe the best lighting) is for a good number of people. Of course, yes, there are better places to take photos and people should look before taking photos anywhere. You see it all the time - the toilet seat lid is up, the counter is messy, the room is messy, personal items are noticeable, etc...

    • Exactly. It's kind of embarassing to see.. Lol. It's not like they take it only once. Many guys and girls take too many bathroon selfies and post it like 3-4 times a week. I never comment but it isn't vert umm.. appealing

    Actually I don't lol
    The only mirror I have in the entire house is in the washroom.

    • But you all your selfies are quite decent.
      I'm just talking about people who takes selfies even when their bathroom is messy, all the products on the floor, toilet seat lid up.. It's kind of awkward when they post it and ask me "how do I look? Do you like my new selfie" lol

    • Cos I'm not using a mirror lol
      If I have to use a mirror , say... one of those semi-narcissistic bodyshot things I used to do
      Now that I don't have a full body mirror anymore , I have to use the bathroom one.

  • On the list of reasons not to do it, many of the mirrors are filthy. Makes everything look bad.

    And many people use public restrooms to take their selfies. Lots of distracting things in many of them, including other people often. Just waiting for some guy to do that and have the guys at the urinals in the picture.

    By the way, love your avatar. You have such beautiful big eyes and such a cute nose. lol

    • LOL!!! Thank you :p People do say that I have really lovely big eyes, but they say my nose is really small 😶😔 It makes me so insecure :( 😂😂

    • Hey. Just because I like small boobs does not mean that I prefer big noses. I always say, "Little is beautiful!" But then again, big eyes are beautiful!

    • Lol! That's so cute :)

  • ya know, there's something about a bathroom that makes a human want to whip out a camera and take a picture of themselves.

  • I actually don't have a mirror in my bedroom.. The only mirrors in my house are in the bathrooms. I guess whenever I enter the bathroom and gaze at the beauty and majesty that is my face, I just have to pull out my phone and snap a few pics despite of the fact that bathrooms are gross.

    • Ah! That's good. I just don't like it when people post such selfies and tag me (and some other folks) in it. Because they want us to give them compliments or something. Lol. Messy background bothers me xD

      Well, thank you for answering!

    • You're very welcome.

  • That surprises me a lot too - Most peoples' best mirrors are in their bedroom - As for toilet seat up or down, different people - If it was me I would spend 5 minutes checking everything in background was neat and tidy.

    • Some guys on here said they don't have a mirror in their bedroom... 😳
      Exactly, they should at least make sure that the background is neat and clean before taking picture. Get the personal items out of the way, It's kind of embarrassing to look at, and very awkward when people post their bathroom selfie and ask me, how do I look? Do you like my new selfie? 😳

  • I think I saw one where there was a surprise in the toilet 🙊😅 A lot of people don't have a full length mirror in their bedroom.

    • Maybe that pic is pretty infamous.

      I know. I've wanted to comment on their toilet two feet away from them lol

    • LMHO!! 😂

  • My ex-girlfriend took a picture of herself in the bathroom and it was stupid! It was her flashing herself over the sink in front of the mirror. I could only see that and the shower curtain. Some people don't have half a damn brain in their head to not do stupid things like that!

    • there exist so many selfies taken in really messy bedrooms... I don't think that's much better :p
      but yes it might look better than a toilet lol

    • @ZombieCommie I do, but I'd probably be better off without one. I could hang a nice painting there instead, something I actually wanted to look at.

      Also your profile picture should be a zombie version of your face :D

  • The lighting in my washroom is much better and more conducive to the shitty cameras on most phones (most don't have a flash). So I would take one in there as well. You'd never know it was the washroom though since the mirror is right in front of the door, lol.

  • I actually don't have a mirror in my bedroom. I have a master suite bathroom attached to my room, and there is a huge mirror in there. But I don't usually take selfies. If I do, it's in my bedroom or outside somewhere. But yeah... I feel you on some of the bathroom selfies and the toilets ha.

    • Lol. Yeah, it's embarrassing to look at their pictures when their personal items and stuff are visible in pics.😳 Some people should make sure the background is neat before taking pic 😂

    • Yes, I have felt this way as well haha. I felt really bad when some guys tried sending me pics but didn't clean up their sink or something. I'm detail-oriented, so I notice.

    • Me too. It really bothers me.

  • Eh I actually don't have any mirror in my bedroom lol. There's only four mirrors in the entire house, one in my housemate's bedroom, in both the bathrooms and my walk in wardrobe. But I never fancied taking pictures with the mirror -.- I'd rather not take any at all.

    • LOL! I don't like taking pictures in front of a mirror too. I prefer to use front camera

    • That's why I call you little sister because we have so much in common 😂☺

  • Mm I don't have a long mirror in my bedroom. Not after seeing red eyes in the dressing mirror in my old house, I've never wanted to buy a mirror for my bedroom ever again.

    Plus my bathroom is pretty neat and tidy, and it's no where near my toilet. I have more personal things in my bedroom then in my toilet I rather not let the whole world to see on here.

  • Well people actually take selfies on other places than the bathroom
    I have seen more car and work selfies than bathroom selfies. I think some people who take them in the bathroom do it because they get better lighting and bathrooms usually have a white background so they can show the colors on their outfits better

    • I'm not saying everyone take selfies in bathroom. I said some people and they post at least 3-4 bathroom selfies on SNS every week.
      Ah, better lighting... Thanks for answering :)

  • it's probably where their only and/or biggest mirror is

    i remember when i was in the dorms my second year, i was the only person on my floor with a full-length mirror and sometimes people would knock just to check themselves out in it

    i agree, people should find a better place for a photo or at least take the picture from a different lens angle

    • It's kind of embarrassing to look at the pics. And it's really awkward when some of them ask me "how do I look? Does my new selfie look cute?". people should at least clean their bathroom, put the toilet seat before taking selfies. Lol

  • Yeah I'm with you on the toilet thing, pout and pose all you like girlies, that open toilet just makes you look like a hooker killing time while she waits for a client.

  • I don't have a mirror in my bedroom. I don't want to use the bathroom one because it's awkward.. Which is why all my pictures end up all awkward and up close. 😔
