‘The Boyfriend Effect’ is TikTok’s latest trend, and Gen Z is showing how they’ve changed since getting into a relationship

There’s a new TikTok trend to watch out for that’s all about Gen Z and their romantic relationships.

TikTok’s latest trend, dubbed the “Boyfriend Effect,” shows people before they were in a relationship versus how they look now that they’re in a relationship. The trend appears to be building on a more recent TikTok phenomenon: the “boyfriend air” theory.

18-year-old content creator Dani (@honeybeewaxx) shared her take on the new trend.

In the first photo, Dani appears all dressed up with her hair and makeup done. The second photo shows her with a hat – without make-up.

“Will fight this BF effect 100% in my next relationship”

Some commenters have vowed to “fight” the boyfriend effect for as long as possible. Others think that embracing natural beauty and being more comfortable around your partner should be welcome changes.

“I can confirm that the BF effect is real, I rarely wear makeup anymore,” replied one user.

“I literally never went out without makeup until I met him,” wrote another.

“Will fight this BF effect 100% in my next relationship,” someone said.

Chelsey Manansala (@chelseymanansala) posted a similar video.

“More confident and you look naturally pretty”

“So beautiful !!” one user commented.

“You looked like Spencer of Pretty Little Liars in the first photo,” said another.

“More confident and you look naturally beautiful,” one wrote.

TikTok user @lizbethsa1as shared how The Boyfriend Effect has affected her.

“Everyone in this trend looks so soft and feminine with their boyfriend, it’s so cute”

“This is what a healthy relationship looks like to me!!” one TikToker replied.

“This style suits you so well! So pretty,” said another.

“Everyone in this trend looks so soft and feminine with their boyfriend it’s so cute,” one wrote.

Trin (@trintrinswrld) has also joined the trend.

“I think that’s called luck”

“The point is that she’s comfortable with him and she can still look around…you’re still beautiful, asf,” commented one user.

“It’s literally everything friend air is,” said another.

“I think that’s called luck,” one wrote.

Depending on who you’re talking to, The Boyfriend Effect can be interpreted as good or bad. TikTok trend aside, the most important thing is how you are actually treated in the relationship.
