15 “Goofy” Relationship Goals That Will Make You Cringe

If you are the type of person who tends to dwell on relationship goals-adjacent Pinterest and Tumblr pages, chanes are good that, at this point, you are familiar with the concept of a “goofy” relationship. What does this mean? I could not begin to tell you, I but I do know that people want it.

What I think these people mean is that they want a relationship in which they feel comfortable being their truest, silliest, most vulnerable self. This is not an insane thing to wish for! It’s just that most of the people they use to illustrate this concept do not actually seem to be particularly goofy in any way themselves. It’s always either April and Andy from Parks and Recreation (who are maybe goofy?) or two Instagram model-type people opening their eyes a little wider than usual and maybe sticking their tongues out while they take a selfie (which is not very goofy, as far as I can tell).

Another thing? At this point, the word “goofy,” to me, has lost most of its meaning. Maybe it is the main descriptor for April and Andy, and maybe it is a great word to use in reference to that girl you know who thinks that she’s “really wild” because she and her boyfriend have done a face mask together. It could very well be this guy, too! In any case, it’s up to you to decide that now. So, check out these “goofy” relationship goals and see if you can figure out the truth for yourself:
