I can’t speak for everyone (though, of course, I almost always try to do so) but I am certain that there is nothing on the internet that is worse than the collection of memes known as “teenager posts.” You have seen these, I am sure–a collection of quotes and statements, usually found on Tumblr or Pinterest that, though they are utterly devoid of context or even meaning, are meant to be seen as both from the mouths of, and thus undeniably relatable to, teenagers.
And, yeah, some of them are so blandly vacuous and vacant that they can’t help but be relatable to pretty much every person in the world (Teenager Post #10081: “Everything is funnier when you’re not allowed to laugh; Teenager Post #11199: “Admit it–we don’t call Gatorade by its flavors, we call it by its colors”). They are particularly aggravating, however, when they veer into the lane of “relationship goals” (a subject that I am known to not be too fond of), because, in many cases, these goals are just wrong. Like, they are so wrong that the one thing I know for sure after reading them is that the person (or alien, or bot, or whatever) who writes these “teenager posts” is almost certainly not a teenager themselves. So, check out these relationship goals-themed teenager posts that, I think we can all agree, are not “goals” at all:
1. But this is…actually…the worst thing, right?
3. Careful what you wish for:
4. Ugh, indeed:
5. This is true, obviously–I just like the caption that came with it, which says, “Unless the person that makes you happy is a giant ass whad.” True!
7. What is the source for this, exactly?
8. And this? Cite your sources, please!
9. Me as a girlfriend?
10. As a rule, this doesn’t mean that they think the relationship is “cute:”
11. “Hey. This has been really fun, but I actually don’t think I’m looking for a relationship right now…”
12. Well, that is no way to go about this relationship!
