13 Weird Things That Should Actually Be Your Relationship Goals

Over the course of 2016, I found myself becoming deeply embedded in a deeply boring, deeply banal topic that I didn’t care for, nobody I knew cared much for either, and that most people on the internet seemed only to have varying levels of disinterest and disdain towards, too. This topic was, of course, the one of Relationship Goals. If you don’t know what that is, you could refer to one of my seventeen thousand posts on the topic, but basically, it’s that thing you’ve seen on various places on the internet (Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.) that details exactly what a relationship is supposed to look like, using photographs of rich, white, heterosexual couples who travel a lot and appear to have good taste in leisurewear.

I spent too much time analyzing the various effects of this absurdly popular but ultimately meaningless concept–goals that explain why you’re actually single, goals that are just a reason to dump someone, and, of course, a deep-dive into why nobody in those Relationship Goals pictures appears to know how to kiss someone–and, by the end of it, came out with nothing much to show for it. I mean, the topic of Relationship Goals is not the worst one on the internet (which has much darker and much more profoundly messed up things to offer, obviously), but it is not something that requires much mental expenditure either.

Now, does this mean that I am done with the Relationship Goals concept? No. There is nothing I love more than spending my mental energy on a topic that, in the end, does not matter at all. And, besides, I realized recently that I had entirely missed a great source of relationship goals photos–possibly the greatest relationship goals photos of all time–that was right under my nose. They’re stock photos.Don’t believe me? Check out these weird things that should actually be your relationship goals right here:

2. When bae spends what little money you have on a huge whiteboard and draws a little sketch of what he thinks a house should look like and you’re like “This is cute, but, um, where are we going to actually live?” and he’s all, “What, this isn’t good enough for you?” and you’re like “Oh, so now I’m the bad guy because I require four walls and a plumbing system? And a roof?” Goals!
