As a man, I don't think I've ever been asked for selfies by the people I was in relationships with.
Maybe for a bit during the "honeymoon" phase of the relationships, but even then, I don't really get that many selfie requests. I console myself with that fact by saying they're saving all their love for me when they see me in person.
I notice that a lot of my female friends are constantly being asked for selfies. I love getting them too and ask my wife for pics whenever I'm away from her, and I'm not even talking about anything particularly scandalous either. I mean, those are great, but still.
