In Jakarta, a couple has broken up due to the inability of the boyfriend to take a satisfactory selfie with the girlfriend.
The boyfriend, who does not want to be named, says, “I am not very good at taking my own photos. In olden days, that would have been a shared common sentiment. But, not anymore. She said that I am not Instagram worthy.”
The girlfriend was not contacted, but from common friends it is understood that the boyfriend fumbled a lot while taking selfies. Most of the time, he was unable to be in the same frame as his girlfriend. It does look like that he was in dire need of YouTube lessons on ‘How to
take Selfies that can be posted to Instagram.’
