3) She’s playing a mind game with you

5) She’s just a PRIVATE person

7) She just broke up
8) She wants some space
9) She’s immature.

1) She’s Going Through a Lot

I have done much research on Social media behaviors. And as a result, I figured out that girls reflect their emotions on social media by some common actions like:

She removes the profile picture,
She Keeps changing it. (Here are 8 reasons why she keeps changing her profile picture.)
She blocks someone on social media. (Here are 5 tips to do when she blocked you.)
She Keeps viewing your profile picture. (Check the full guide on why she keeps checking your profile picture.)

All these behaviors have many messages that require you to know.
Probably she removes her profile picture if she’s mad at you. She wants to let you know her sadness and wants you to take a step and apologize to her.

When it comes to removing the profile picture, a number of factors come into play.
But one of the most significant reasons why she removes her profile picture is that she’s overwhelmed with emotions.

2) Mood Swings Could Be a Reason

When a girl has mood swings, she has a lot of ups and downs, without even knowing the reason. One second she’s happy and the other she’s upset, this could be a reason why she would remove her profile picture.

My girlfriend also used to do it regularly, and I asked her one day for the reason.
“How come you’re posting a new profile picture then removing it the day after that?”

I noticed some uncertainty in her behaviors as she also has a sudden change in her emotional state concerning main decisions.

For example, she planned to study abroad for almost a year, but she woke up one day and called to let me know that she changed her mind.

And more interestingly, she didn’t have any sensible reason to cancel the plan. The same is going on with social media behavior.
She sets the profile picture she loves and removes it after a couple of hours.

Why is that? DUE TO MOOD SWINGS.

3) She’s Playing Mind Games With You

She might delete her profile picture to make you overthink so you would text her. That would be a great trait some girls use to make guys think about them non-stop.

My girlfriend’s sister is doing the same shit. Whenever she gets on bad terms with my GF, she removes her profile picture first then blocks her from anywhere on social media.

You can not believe how it makes my girlfriend crazy. She thinks day and night that if something happened to her sister. Or does her sister still like her?

That’s a dirty childish game that numerous girls use to get on a guy’s nerve and make them crazy.

In my eyes, that is toxic social media behavior when she keeps removing her profile picture and waits for you to respond and take action.

You can’t stop thinking about her, and it is running through your head all day to figure out why she removed her profile picture.

What to do?
Ignore, and act as nothing happened. She will keep playing these mind games against you if you show any emotional weakness.

Don’t let your emotions get played in such a nerve-racking game.
It would also be better to disappear for a while until she can learn how to behave maturely in a relationship.

4) She Looks Better In Real Life Than In The Picture

Have you ever wondered, why you look better in the mirror than in a profile picture?
Pictures are 2D, and you see yourself 3D, so it looks very different.

That might be the case for her. She may not be photogenic and doesn’t have sufficient self-esteem to set any pictures on her social media or remove her profile picture as she’s not happy with her look in the profile picture.

5) She’s Just a PRIVATE Person

She might be an introverted person and doesn’t feel the need to share every detail of her life.

6) Social comparison

That is, unfortunately, the fact that people nowadays live their lives to compare themselves so much with others.

This type of behavior can be seen a lot among girls than boys.
If she belongs to this group, then no surprise if she has instability social media behavior like setting and removing new profile pictures every other day.

I’m not talking about the time you upload a profile picture and decide to remove it after a long period. That makes sense.

So she compares herself with other girls, like competing with all girls outside to win a better profile picture.

Who’s going to win in this endless competition?
No one. It’s such a sick mentality that ruins mental health.

7) She Just Broke Up

She recently broke up and is in recovery mode.

8) She Wants Some Space

If you are in a relationship with her and she just removed her profile picture out of the blue, and she is also acting cold, you would better give her some time to be alone. Don’t be around her till she gets back to the normal mood.

9) She’s Immature

I personally have no time to even think of updating my profile picture. I set my profile picture last year, and my GF just asked me to replace it with the new one. I clearly forgot about that. What I’m trying to say is that I’m busy with much important stuff in my life such as :

  • How to make more money.
  • How to lose more weight.
  • How to better my relationship.
  • How to invest money smarter.
  • How to overcome my shyness in public.
  • How to level up my general knowledge.
  • Thinking about my future goals.

Do I still have time or energy to think about removing my profile picture?
Firm “NO.“.

She seems to be immature if she removes her profile picture to seek attention.

I see many girls post a story on Instagram and track the whole day on who sees and replies to their stories. That’s nonsense.

Is it really the attention she is looking for?
If the answer is “yes“, then you are dealing with an immature girl if she is an attention seeker by removing her profile picture.

Did you know she can hide her profile picture from you without deleting or blocking you?
