UPDATE: There have been a number of changes in Snapchat over the years. We no longer have a Top 3 visible best friends, there are stories and we now have face filters and games. That being said, there are still ways to quickly figure out if your boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you on Snapchat. The quickest way is to ask them to look at their Snapchat and see who the top 8 best friends are on their app. This will tell you almost everything you need to know.
You may also want to actually click on the names of the Snapchat users as they can always clear the conversation and try to hide from you what they have been talking about.
Over the last several months the searches for Snapchat relationship drama have been staggering. In fact, the Snapchat Best Friends drama article by Farrell Sweeney is my most trafficked article every single month for the last three months. Most of the searchers are from boys and girls wanting to know how they can figure out if their boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on them. I guess “cheating” shouldn’t be used in the literal term because Snapchat is an application on a phone. Two people cannot physically touch each other through Snapchat. I digress.
So, can you find out if your boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on Snapchat? Yes and no. Snapchat has a best friends feature that shows users the top three “friends” a particular person Snapchats the most. The drama starts when a girl sees that the top three best friends on her boyfriend’s Snapchat are all girls she knows. Here comes the drama.
It is important to remember that you will never be able to see what photos are being shared because that is the point of Snapchat. The photos disappear in 10 seconds or less. So, if you are looking to do some investigative work on your bf or gf you are out of luck. All that said, let’s be completely honest and a little mature here. Yes, I am talking about being mature in a Snapchat article. Boy, how the times have changed. Anyway.
If your significant other consistently has the opposite sex as their best friends on Snapchat do you think something might be going on? When he or she sends you Snaps what is the context? Are they fully clothed or a little bit risqué? If they have shared indecent or inappropriate photos with you there is a good chance they are sharing them with someone else as well.
The best way to combat any type of Snapchat drama is to develop a relationship based on trust. That can be extremely difficult in an era of Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. That said, if you do not trust your boyfriend or girlfriend on social media you probably should not be their boyfriend or girlfriend. If you find yourself checking his or her best friends multiple times a day, is the relationship worth it? If you wake up in the morning sick to your stomach it might be time to face reality.
We have all been there. There is a moment in a relationship when something is amiss. Maybe he told you he would text when he got home from the party and he didn’t. Maybe she used to call every night at 11:30 and this particular night the phone call didn’t come. Having been through a lot of drama when it comes to relationship I can tell you that almost 99% of the time your intuition and gut feeling is correct. If you think and feel like he or she is cheating on Snapchat they probably are.
Rather than making your life miserable it is sometimes best to just delete Snapchat altogether. Remember that you cannot fully delete Snapchat unless you go online to this link. If you just delete the app off your iPhone or Android phone you still have an account and people will still be able to see your best friends. It might be hard to delete Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter but it can save you a lot of heartache and pain.
The more mature couples will realize that Snapchat drama is not worth it. If you want to share photos with your boyfriend or girlfriend you can always text them photos. This has been available for over a decade now so it is not like it is something new. Honestly, if you want to share something that you think should disappear then you most likely should not share it at all.
March 2015 Snapchat Update
We are all still patiently waiting for Snapchat Best Friends to return. It has been two months since the major update and we still cannot see Best Friends. There have been a handful of small Snapchat app updates on both the iPhone and Android but nothing related to Best Friends. This has update many users as some have threatened to leave Snapchat. I don’t think that will happen but the longer it takes to bring back best friends the more frustrated users are going to get.
Do you think Snapchat should bring back best friends? Should a boyfriend or girlfriend constantly check Snapchat to see who their significant other is “snapping”?
