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.

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.

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