If you've ever posted a picture of yourself online, it's possible you may have encountered an unwanted advance or two. This can come in the form of messages or comments on Instagram, Tumblr, or anywhere your internet self resides. I tend to see a lot of people having trouble with this on instagram recently, which inspired me to write this to hopefully help someone out.
First of all, understand it's okay to not want these advances!
Whether they're rude and sexual or just annoying it is okay to not want or accept these advances. So even if someone gets angry at your or upset because you kindly say no or block them, understand you're not in the wrong for being uncomfortable.
With that said, here are some good options for ending conversation with someone that's being persistent or if you're having a lot of different people message you.
- Block them
- Mute them
- Accept messages only from people you follow
- If need be and you feel you need to, you can go private
Sorry this is a short one but I hope you all stay safe out there and online. - Salem
