Gotta be careful on social media

Jealous Girl: ウチの彼氏ったら ホンットありえない!SNSで アイドルにイイネするの!彼氏なら ウチ以外の女の子には キョーミないって思ってほしいのに。。。!SNS禁止にしたいけど。。。ワガママな女って 思われたらヤだな〜

Jealous Girl: My boyfriend is unbelievable! He’s ‘liking’ idols on social media! I wish my boyfriend would think, ‘I don’t have interest in any girls besides mine.’ …I want to ban social media, but… I don’t want to look selfish.

And Her Friend: ともだちの彼氏が SNSで アイドルに イイネしまくってるらしいの。キミはアリだと思う?ナシだと思う?。。。って 急に聞かれても困るか。私はアイドルならセーフじゃないって思うんだけど。。。彼女はアウトらしいわ。

And Her Friend: My friend’s boyfriend has been ‘liking’ idols like crazy on social media. Is it troubling if you’re suddenly asked if you think it’s something or nothing? I think if they’re idols then it’s fine, isn’t it? My friend doesn’t seem to think so.

That novel sounds fascinating
