Listen up, people!
Here’s a quick lesson on social media flirting so make sure to take notes. This really helpful and completely effective guide might help you get a follow from the person you just thirst followed. Today’s lesson has been brought to you by singer and actor Demi Lovato, who recently tried her tactics on Superman aka Henry Cavill, and actually got a reply. Sliding into someone’s DMs is way too 2017, and it’s a new year so there are new rules, newer than the ones Dua Lipa gave us last year.
So, let’s begin.
First step – Well, obviously you have to follow the object of your affection, and that’s what Demi did. That’s pretty innocent.
Next, immediately post the hottest picture you have of yourself. Obviously, if the person you just followed opens your profile, you need to have a killer picture on top to get them interested in scrolling more. And, Demi did not waste any time. Her new picture popped up 22 seconds after she followed Henry, because you can’t mess around now, you need to act quick.
Good choice Demi, if that picture doesn’t make people stalk your Instagram, then I don’t know what will.
Big news coming soon…….
After that, all you have to do is like a couple of their pictures so your name pops up a few times on their notifications.
This one is simple enough, but you have to still play it smart. Demi chose to like two pictures of Henry where he was with his jiu-jitsu coach.
Another morning spent training with Mr Roger Gracie, a good friend and a great professor. Gotta watch out for those sneak attacks though! @rogergracie @rogergracieacademy #BJJ
Had a double day today! Jiu-Jitsu with the remarkable Stan Beck and Leg Day shortly afterwards with the masterful Dave Rienzi! Thank you Stan and thank you Dave. I also just wanted to out do Brad Slater. Did you do legs today Brad? @RogerGracie @RenzoGracieBJJ @RenzoGracieWeston @BSlater9 #BJJ @DaveRienzi #LegDay
Why was this the smart choice, you ask? The second picture on Demi’s profile is this –
#bjj #brazilianjiujitsu #bluebelt
Very sneakily establishing a connection, a brilliant move. See, she’s highlighting that they already have stuff in common.
All of these steps happened within 30 seconds because time is key in these situations.
You’ve done your work, now just sit back and wait for that follow, it will definitely come. And, if you followed through all the rule correctly, everything will work out perfectly and this is what you will get.
He even commented and even gave her a ‘thumbs up’ emoji, but I believe in Demi, she will turn it into a ‘heart eye’ emoji soon.
If they actually start dating, they will have the most millennial meeting story – “I thirst followed him and it actually worked out!”
All of us right now –
Okay, celebrities following each other on social media is not that big of a deal, but this particular interaction caused so much uproar on the internet, and honestly, it doesn’t look coincidental. This is the type of Instagram education we all need, and we all need to step it up now.
This was totally planned.
