So I've been dating with this guy for 5 months now. He's 21, I'm 20. He recently invited me to his dad's birthday and introduced me to his parents. It all went amazing and when we got back to his place, I felt for the first time since we've known each other that this thing we have is going to last for a long time. So we were going to sleep and I was scrolling through Instagram. I saw that he had added a photo of him (some photoshoot with his band, only he was on the picture) before the birthday and there were many girls commenting it. One girl just put an emoji: 👍🏽 (thumb) and he answered to her with a kiss emoji (😘). When I saw the kiss emoji which my boyfriend wrote, I immediately was like what the hell? He was lying next to me and he laughed at it and said it's nothing special, said that the girl commenting him studies at the same course in university as him. So, I was feeling really bad about it and didn't talk to him for 15 minutes or so. All this time he was trying to hug me and tell me it's nothing, but I just felt how my eyes got teary. I went to the other room and cried. I have been crying in front of him before thet only one time, which was about totally different thing. So he came to the other room and hugged me again and asked what's wrong, that he didn't really meant anything with this emoji. I told him that I've been so stupid all this time and that I probably imagined more of the relationship than him. He just got silent and I heard him start sobbing, for the first time ever. So basically we were both crying there and I went back to bedroom. I was up for like an hour and he still didn't come back to bed. I went back to the other room and he was just laying there, I asked why he didn't come back to bed and he answered "I don't know". So soon he came back to bed and we didn't say a word to each other... Continues in Update...

You started crying over an emoticon on a social media platform.
Think about that for a second.12

I feel like everyone says their partner deserves someone better, and I hate it- if you treat someone as best as you can you're a great partner. I get how you feel, I use to analyze my ex's instagram comments and its true instagram and emojis have a whole other meaning and I'm not being dramatic- but the way I see it, not just everyone sends a kiss face especially to girls theyre not dating- it sends the wrong signal. Guys will do it to guys as jokes and girls will do it to girls.. but its not really the opposite sex, I would never send one to a man if I was taken.. and hard to say what the situation is really. I;m not saying he's cheating on you at all, but maybe he likes other attention too which sucks. In my last relationship I confronted my boyfriend about the girl who kept commenting on his pictures and posting hearts etc.. and turns out he was hanging out with her a lot more than I even knew.2
