The Playbook For The Modern Man

How To Date The Instagram Girl You’ve Never Met

“People enjoy quirky daily things much more than they do another video of you eating a $100 meal.”

Instagram is a romantic place. Just by looking at someone’s pictures you can tell whether you love them or not (cue ‘Love Is In The Air’ by John Paul Young).

So, now that you’ve fallen madly in love, how do you date the Instagram girl you’ve never met? Well, much like Einstein, I like to solve life’s important questions. And much like E = mc2, INSTA = LOVE.

Now let’s say for this example, it’s the common Instagram equation: you follow her, but she doesn’t follow you. The short term goal is to get on her radar and perhaps even get a “like”, the long term goal is to get a “follow back”, because on Instagram if two single people follow each other, they are basically married. It’s the law.

We hit up a comedian (Ash Williams) and a dating coach (Chris Manak) to get the all important tips on how to get that all important follow back (and a date):

#1 Avoid Instagram Clutter



According To A Comedian

Some girls have over 500,000 followers, so you’ve got to stand out from the crowd. The best way to do this is to ONLY like the posts that nobody else does. For example, she might gram a pic of a chair or a glass of milk and it’s not “popping”. So “like” the picture, and if you are feeling adventurous perhaps comment, “nice chair” or “I love milk”. Once again, anything to get on her radar.

According To A Dating Coach

In a time when everyone is plastering their Social Media with more and more “high value” shit they’re doing, I think what is most attractive is capturing and sharing what you genuinely enjoy doing in your life. Keep it light-hearted.

Don’t try so hard. I’ve had endless clients over the years slather their Instagram with photos in expensive restaurants, with beautiful women, looking off into the distance from the bow of some sailboat, and still get nothing from the ladies.

Of course, some of this is fine, but it’s very obvious when this is not your real life and you’re running around looking for opportunities to present to the world some bullshit version of yourself. You win the game by not playing the game. Be genuine.

#2 Go Stealth


According To A Comedian

Go on her page but don’t like anything, be like an Instagram ghost. Your main objective of going stealth is to get a figurative feel for her hobbies and interests…perhaps she likes kittens or orange juice; whatever it is, you are gathering valuable information. If you feel the urge to click something, then take a screen shot, but don’t be a weirdo by going deep in the profile and liking her Thailand pics from 154 weeks ago.

According To A Dating Coach

If you accidentally like an old pic: don’t do anything. Definitely don’t DM her and try to recover it. What’s done is done, just let it sit. She might even wonder about it, like when you ask a girl how her night is going in a bar and then walk off.

#3 Be Diligent


According To A Comedian

Take notes of which cafes she likes to go to. These are now your favourite cafes – I once travelled interstate for a girl I loved on Instagram (but had never met). I went to her favourite cafe for three consecutive days and I am now talking to this girl.

According To A Dating Coach

Test out a joke/tease in her Stories. Don’t comment on her public photos like every other chump, and for the love of god, don’t tell her how beautiful she is or put the flame emoticon. There is a girl on my IG that I will just constantly say “Doesn’t match” to any clothes related Story that she posts. She hates it, but it gets a reaction every time.

#4 Take Acting Lessons


According To A Comedian

You will need to be a strong actor when you bump into your “Instagram girl” and act as if you know nothing about her when you actually know EVERYTHING about her.

According To A Dating Coach

No comment.

#5 Private Message


According To A Comedian

Yes you can private message on Instagram. Send a tasteful pic – not of your favourite body part – of the ocean or some sand. The picture will be so relaxing that she will think she is on holiday and should respond promptly.

According To A Dating Coach

Treat it exactly like getting a phone number. Build some rapport first. Don’t necessarily try to ask her out in the first contact (a super common mistake guys make with phone numbers). Contact her, have a chat, leave it (unless it takes off from the get-go of course). When some time passes, contact her again, have a chat, ask if she’d like to catch up then if she is as receptive as the first time. There really is no magic to it.

“There is a lot to be said for a man who isn’t in a rush.”

#6 The Closing Act

According To A Comedian

Good luck. By using these tips you should end up married…or in jail.

According To A Dating Coach

On Instagram, amuse YOURSELF first and foremost. Just post the fun and weird shit that you see in your everyday life. Make a bit of a joke of the whole thing. Just yesterday I posted a Story of a table that I walked past that had a “Free” sign posted to it. I had clearly missed out because the table had nothing left besides a few leaves that had fallen onto it. I posted a photo captioned, “Free leaves! Shit yeah” … and even that got DMs.

    Is this a joke? Let’s ignore that equations are “the thing you do on the left side is equal the thing you do on the right side”.
    Point 1 is false. Have you ever had more than 500 likes? You don’t care who likes, just how many. The Like-Game works on small accounts only. Additionally do big IGs have mostly a theme, so you won’t find a pic like you describe. Maybe back in 2014.#2 is creepy and unnecessary. It’s OK to scroll her feed to check if you like her, but searching for hobbies isn’t cool. That’s nothing a cool guy does. #3 and #4 are way too creepy and needy. And #5 won’t work because many don’t look at their requests (big ones).

    Better way: Interact with her. Write comments with a specific compliment and ask something about the pic. Than you may have a public conversation.

    But anyways, cool that you made the work and good luck.

    I have figured out some new points from your web site about personal computers. Another thing I have always thought is that laptop computers have become an item that each household must have for many people reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, search for information, study, tune in to music and in some cases watch tv series. An innovative solution to complete every one of these tasks has been a mobile computer. These desktops are mobile ones, small, potent and easily transportable.
