Ah, relationship goals. What is there left to say about the social media trend–you know, the one propagated by nebulously attractive, Pilates-fit, almost all-white couples doing yoga together in matching sweatpants–that has not been said many, many times over? The concept is not that deep. It’s one of those things that, like old crushes and meme semiotics alike, does not really deserve the amount of thought I have given them, and yet, I can’t stop thinking about them.
That being said, I do have a more pressing concern regarding relationship goals couples. Not to be dramatic or anything, but I think they all may be about to die. I mean, I already sort of automatically assume that all relationship goals couples are in the midst of a pre-apocalyptic hellscape (that’s the way I like to rationalize things!), but there are some that appear to be in a more immediate kind of danger. Don’t believe me? Check out these relationship goals couples that might actually be in real danger:
