I can't judge too harshly, despite the fact that as far as I know (I'm not on Instagram) it's more "look I'm cute here's a selfie" than it is a display of interests and character. However I'm sure people use it however they want, so... ?

My boyfriend and I are really happy together and he started all of that by noticing my profile on a site, where I had shared some of my interests and we had some stuff in common, so he began a conversation by saying that he liked some of the same shows and books I'd mentioned, and he asked if I would be willing to hang out and talk and get to know one another. I was perfectly willing to do that. In that moment, I was not yet willing to do any MORE than that, but things gotta start somewhere, right?

If his initial message had been, "Hi how are you?" I might have ignored him.

So if she's shared in her Instagram, things she is interested in, that you are also interested in, why not mention that?

If on the other hand you only "like her" because you find her sexually attractive, due to facial symmetry, hairstyle, evolutionarily strategic body fat deposits, and a smile that feels like it's for you alone... You don't actually like her. Because you don't even know her. Not a bit. You just like her photos, and in which case I'm sure that there is a "like" feature for that, and no need to send a message to let her know, since you probably are not the only guy who does.

A sincere smile has always worked for me. If she smiles back then say hi. You will figure it out after that..

If you've never spoken to her and all you know of her is that she has "liked" a couple of your posts, how do you know you like her? How did she know you to "add" you if you don't know her? If you know her online, how do you see this relationship progressing-- do you even live anywhere near each other?
