15 Relationship Goals That Are Actually Really Bad For Girls

I am a person who spends a lot of time–or, rather, most of my time–on the internet. Because of this, I feel comfortable, more or less, in stating the obvious: Everything on the internet is trash. Trash is a relative label, of course–one man’s spicy hot take is another woman’s inspiration for a fire meme, so to speak–and not all trash is bad. (I am a legitimate, not ironic, fan of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so I know this to be true better than anyone else.) Plus, the trash is unavoidable, so, what is important is knowing how to separate the good trash from the bad kind.

The most obvious, stinking, has-to-be-removed-soon-before-it-contaminates-our-water-supply example of this garbage? Relationship goals.

Relationship goals, if you have never read any of my many manifestos on this site before, is the internet phenomenon in which certain things that young, conventionally attractive, heterosexual couples do becomes a (supposed) goal, simply because it’s featured on a certain Instagram account or Pinterest board and ends up getting a lot of likes. Most of the time, they’re funny, and, in some cases, they’re legitimately cute. But if you look seriously at them, you’ll see that a lot of them are pretty misogynistic. A lot misogynistic, in fact. So, check out these relationship goals that are actually really bad for girls:
