Boyfriend Air

What does Boyfriend Air mean?

Being near your boyfriend

“Boyfriend Air” is a fun term that’s gained fame among young girls on TikTok. It’s a playful way to talk about how they think their appearance changes when they’re around their boyfriends. They believe that their makeup, hair, and skin look less attractive when they’re hanging out with their BFs, almost as if the air around their boyfriends has some weird, beauty-diminishing effect.

This humorous notion of “Boyfriend Air” is actually derived from another popular term on TikTok called “School Air”. “School Air” is used to express how the air inside schools seems to negatively impact the looks of teenage TikTokers.

The term “Boyfriend Air” was first introduced in a video by a TikToker named @h0neyymel in December 2022. Of course, this idea is mostly for laughs and not to be taken seriously. It’s just another fun way for teens to express themselves on social media.

Ugh, I hate when I’m with my boyfriend and my makeup looks awful 😩

Haha, I know what you mean! It’s that boyfriend air messing it up! πŸ˜‚

Seriously, it’s like there’s some kind of invisible beauty destroyer around him! 🀣

I think we need to start wearing makeup-proof masks around our boyfriends then! πŸ˜…πŸ’„
