Why does she check her ex's Instagram so often?

My girlfriend follows her ex-boyfriend on Instagram and often likes photographs that he puts up of the two of them. I asked her why she does it, and she said he was still a good friend. Isn't she being insensitive?

How is it insensitive? She has a relationship with her ex, appreciates the time they once had together, and likes a few photographs online. Aren't you being a little paranoid about this? She's with you, not him, so why are you letting an Instagram account annoy you? Try and be a little rational about your reaction.

I have been on a few dates with a girl, and we always have a good time. The funny thing is, after the date ends and she goes home, she rarely responds to any of my messages on WhatsApp. She sometimes replies after two days and, when we meet, acts as if nothing has happened. At first, I thought she was just not the kind of person who checks WhatsApp often, but she uses her phone constantly whenever we are out, so it's impossible for her to not see my messages. I don't know if I should just come right out and ask her why she does this, because it may annoy her. I genuinely like her and I think we get along very well, so this little thing shouldn't bother me as much as it does. How do I ask her about it? Should I just ignore it?

If she doesn't respond as fast as you would like her to, she probably has a reason. If you like spending time with her, why not focus on that instead, for now? If it bothers you as much as you say it does, why not come right out and ask her why she does it? It's too early in this relationship for you to expect her to chat with you constantly, and people do have lives of their own, so
I suggest you evaluate how reasonable you are being about this.
