There are many unfair stereotypes about boyfriends out there. Many of them have plenty of nice qualities, and aren't (totally) deserving of the "men are trash" reputation that they get online. But if there's one area in which boys do consistently mess up, it's taking a picture of their girlfriends.
Now women of the world have decided to unite and are using social media to share comparisons between pictures that they take of their boyfriend and the pics that their boyfriends take of them. And if you needed any more convincing that getting your guy to take a shot for your Instagram is a total waste of everyone's time, get scrolling.
Let's start with a classic.
How about this one?
Candid pics I take for my boyfriend vs. ones he takes of me 🙄😑 https://t.co/43GmWo1msF— anna clendening (@anna clendening)1499575898.0
Which seems to be something of a theme.

Going for dinner seems to be a typical setting for these snaps.
@aleeomo if this ain’t the truth 🤦🏼♀️❤️ https://t.co/upViOoQIvs— Tabitha (@Tabitha)1537404280.0
Are girls just naturally better photographers?Or is it (as we suspect) that boys simply cannot be bothered to make an effort?

Or how about these?

Here's another classic.Our old enemy, the "shoving food into the mouth" portrait, strikes again.
The contrast is intense.

Another classic iteration here.Why can't boys resist pulling out a camera the moment that a girl starts munching her food?
You have to wonder what these guys were trying to achieve.Did they really think that the blurry image including a towel turban was about to be Instagram-worthy?
At least with this, we can see the intention.
@aleeomo the accuracy of this is deafening https://t.co/444pdtoodZ— zed (@zed)1537391019.0
Another food-shot culprit here.
@aleeomo Literally 😂😩 https://t.co/jZyPfKUWyU— sophs (@sophs)1537389797.0
How about, as a rule of thumb, we never take photos of each other eating?

Another absolute classic here.

The boyfriend shots? Insta-worthy.

One of these is not like the other.It almost looks as though the boyfriend snapped his image just as his girl was mid-falling over.
We're noticing a trend.
@aleeomo We try🤷🏾♂️ @susanroya https://t.co/Cd8D3dr7Qg— T’Chahal (@T’Chahal)1537396054.0
It's not just the way their girls look, though.
@aleeomo It’s just.. amazing how accurate https://t.co/ueTtar5Wa8— viv (@viv)1537409706.0
Because it's not just the fact that the girls don't look their best.
@aleeomo @RyanHoskins98 hmmm https://t.co/7ubImDA2vC— des (@des)1537413911.0
Even if they claim to be candid.

Whereas, when the one behind the camera is the boyfriend?

Although some of the snaps are just bizarre.For example, this set, where it looks as though the boyfriend must have simply dropped the camera.
Although some in the tag don't exactly make sense.Such as this one, which appears to be two selfies. It's hard to blame the poor photography on someone else when the camera is in the pic, right?
Although some aren't as bad as others.Like this one. Sure, it's cropped a little awkwardly - but it's lit properly, in focus, and she doesn't look totally taken by surprise!
Here's another that's a little less offensive.
via: TwitterSure, she looks a little goofy - but also, pretty cute. Anyway, it's hard to concentrate on either person when there's so much delicious food around.
Restaurants do seem to be a major culprit.So, if you're ever out for dinner and your S.O. asks to take a picture of you, you have been warned.
Especially because of this.
@aleeomo And I had to retake his cause it wasn’t good enough... https://t.co/43fWygulEN— BrittAff (@BrittAff)1537403835.0
