imgur: the simple image sharer

You won't believe this Instagram photographer doesn't have a girlfriend

One young photographer is redefining the term "self love." And it's completely SFW.

Instagram user Keisuke Jinushi recently uploaded several images of a rather odd form of romance. In fairly simple steps, you--and your camera--can convince friends that you are in the constant presence of a girl when, in reality, you're flying solo. 

Assuming your friends and family members don’t ask to see any part of your "girlfriend" other than her hands, the ruse is fairly easy to pull off.

First, paint and sculpt your fingernails.

Next, take the standard "selfie"--only with your newly-sex-changed hand in the shot, stroking your face. Do it in a public setting that actual couples might frequent. Pray that the other patrons are blind.

If the angles are right, you will have success! And I use that term very loosely!

You can carry the deception even farther with nothing more than a strategically-placed wig.

The trick works to an entirely different degree if you happen to be a trained acrobat with gorgeous feet.
