My boyfriend does not post pictures of him and I on instagram. He does comment my pictures with hearts and stuff, but when I ask him to post a picture of me, he makes an excuse. I had a converstation with him a couple days ago about it and I honestly forgot what he said. But, he says he is not ashamed of me or anything, but he wants to post things when he's ready and we basically said to take things slower. We do hold hands and kiss in public though.

He said he would never cheat on me, he loves me very much and he said he wants to be with me. And all his friends and his brother knows about me (I didn't meet his parents yet, but we plan on it). And his friends know he likes me alot. He posts pictures with his guy best friends and of him and that's it ..Is he just trying to be private by not posting pictures of us online? I was going to ask him about it tomorrow but I don't want to seem petty. He has a whole album of me called "baby <3" on his phone also. Do you think i'm just over thinking things and being petty about this? It just bothers me that he does not even post one picture of us online.

& He wants to spend his future with me.

The behavior you describe does not sound to me like someone who is ashamed of you. So, I think the best plan is the one you already have, namely, talk to him about it. It may be that you are correct that he is trying to keep things private, or maybe he hasn't given it that much thought. But the way to find out for sure is to talk to him.
