Men — we love them, we sometimes hate them, and we just want them to be normal for 5 minutes. These are some guys who were really in over their heads when their girlfriends asked them for the simplest little thing.
No matter what you say, these guys definitely tried and we appreciate them for their effort. At the end of the day, these couples love each other and are looking back on these events and laughing. Now honey, do you want lemon or lime tampons?
The Human Calender
@Anjalaaay tweets “I’m never asking anyone out on a date again” and posts this text conversation she had between her and her boyfriend and it’s a real mood. We don’t know much about this guy, but we do know he’s got a firm grasp of what day it is.
This guy really believed she was asking him instead of Google or Siri for the date. He must not be paying attention or he’s trying to dodge going on an actual date. Either way, it’s still the 12th tomorrow and he should still be nice about it.
He Brought Her Home… Flowers??
It’s so sweet when your significant other thinks of you and goes out of their way to make your day extra special. Flowers especially make every girl’s heart melt a little bit. When this boyfriend brought home this bouquet he made his girlfriend’s day… and her salad.
This is cute, but oh my god, this is kale. To his credit, this kale has a nice purple color like the one you’d see on a flower but we’re shocked this happened regardless. He definitely chose the best-looking flower in the produce section.
This “Cuddle” Session
Reddit user kakozlow shocked pretty much everyone on the internet with her boyfriend’s over-the-top lovey-doveyness. She posted that she “was complaining to my boyfriend that we never cuddle anymore and this was his solution.”
This solution stinks. No, it literally stinks because now his hand smells like feet. Seriously, who doesn’t like a good cuddle session? She needs to take matters into her own feet and get this man to give her some proper cuddle time. Or at least a foot massage.
This Is A Solid Way To Start A Dryer Fire
If you ever wondered if your significant other is letting their life spiral out of control just look in their dryer. Ignore all the unfolded clothes and check the lint trap like @asianvelma did. She tweets that she “found this in the dryer at my boyfriend’s place……..I’m going to fight his housemates.”
Honestly, we would start yelling too. Her boyfriend and his roommates are just asking for their dryer to catch on fire. Pro tip: when the lint is starting to look like its own sweater it may be time to toss it out.
This Guy Who Wanted It Real Chill
What’s the one thing you don’t tell your girlfriend? Let’s all say it together: “calm down.” Now let’s say it again louder for this boyfriend in the back who apparently doesn’t know that. Let’s do it quickly before his girlfriend gets to his house.
What a sweet way to let someone down easy. He’s just not down for a relationship where they talk about feelings and all that crazy intense stuff. We’re curious if this is his go-to line when he’s talking to his mother or he’s got any self-preservation feelings.
This Marie Kondo Lover
This organized boyfriend chants to himself every night before he goes to sleep “a place for everything, and everything in its place.” It doesn’t matter if that place is completely random and doesn’t make sense to anyone except for himself.
Twitter user @casualciara captions this photo “men are really something else,” and yeah, we agree. He was probably staring at this paperclip on the ground for weeks and not picking it up which is why he knew where it was. This boyfriend has some major chaotic-good energy.
The Music Lover Who Wanted To Feel It Too
When this was tweeted the musician The Weeknd had just released an album about his breakup with Selena Gomez. It was super sad obviously, but when this boyfriend heard about it he wanted to feel the music too instead of just listening.
We’re curious now if every album he listens to he wants to listen to while in the same frame of mind as the artist. This would actually be a great way to hack a vacation. All his girlfriend has to do is put on a Beach Boys album and he’ll want to go to the beach.
She Wanted A Party So He Threw Her A Party Complete With A Cake That Says “Cake”
Sometimes you get what you asked for. Exactly what you asked for. When this wife asked her husband for “a run of the mill birthday party” he asked her if she wanted a “generic party” and she said yes. That’s exactly what she got.
As clever as this is, I think we can all agree that coming home to this would be absolutely no fun at all. We’re hoping that he actually took her out for dinner afterward or she actually liked the joke.
The Only Wrong Way To Eat A Kit Kat
This photo is cursed in many ways. Okay, maybe only one way but it feels like many because of how wrong this boyfriend is for doing this. @byrdinator tweets out: “‘I don’t think I’ve ever had a Kit Kat before,” my boyfriend remarks before doing this.”
This is terrifying on the level of that Photoshopped picture of Justin Bieber eating a burrito from the side. We sincerely hope this man gets some correct Kit Kat eating practice in soon because this is too much.
This Boyfriend Who Thought Tampons Were Flavored
When this girl asked her boyfriend to pick up some tampons for her from the store, his response was a little more than she bargained for. He’s out here asking questions that we’re not sure should ever be asked, but honestly, they’re hilarious.
It’s not entirely his fault, he’s just so used to Sprite, Sierra Mist, and 7-Up’s citrus marketing that he thought the same applied to tampons. We get it. Just make sure you pick up the sugar-free version.
A Poet And He Definitely Knows It
We’ve all wanted to be someone’s muse. When we hear that John Legend song on the radio we all jam-out picturing ourselves in Chrissy Teigen’s shoes and hope that one day our boyfriends will write sweet music and poetry about us. This boyfriend gave it a little twist though…
This is actually a beautiful poem. The fact he did it out of fridge magnets just makes it even more impressive. He did something that not everyone can do and made a touching and suggestive poem out of a magnetic gag gift. Our hats go off to him.
This Boyfriend Who Didn’t Want To Worry His Girlfriend
This is some incredibly cute stuff done by an incredibly technologically-challenged boyfriend. That’s okay. We’re actually so thankful that he lost his phone and made a Twitter account because it brought us this touching moment.
If the username “itsmeeboo091216” doesn’t grab her attention then the very public tweet reply to her will. Kudos to him for not wanting her to worry when he wasn’t answering her texts and taking matters into his own hands. This is a grade-A good boyfriend and he should be Twitter verified.
This Enthusiastic Congratulations!
Reddit user hopeisananchor619 posts about her pretty enthusiastic boyfriend who’s always in her corner, despite not really knowing what’s going on. She writes: “I start my dream job tomorrow (maternity nursing)! Here’s the cake my boyfriend got me to celebrate.”
This boyfriend may not know exactly the position title his girlfriend has, but he has a basic understanding of it, and that’s all he really needs. That and an incredible cake decorator with a steady hand.
This Cartoonish Compliment
@tessa_denae tweets a compliment her really sweet boyfriend said to her: “thought I looked cute as hell today and my boyfriend told me I look like Pinhead Larry.” Okay, maybe not so nice a compliment.
This could be a compliment if he was a huge Pinhead Larry fan… but we’re kind of doubting that. We’re genuinely impressed with this boyfriend’s niche Spongebob character references that he seems to have on tap. It’s a very specific skill to have but luckily he’s found a girl who’s got a similar sense in humor.
This Maternity Photoshoot And… T-shirt?
We’re all big fans of the maternity photoshoot. Normally they happen before the actual labor and involve some kind of dramatic lighting, staging, and professional photography. This new dad took more of a grassroots approach with a selfie and a homemade t-shirt with his face on it.
She looks somewhat amused, somewhat in pain, and somewhat used to his antics. This is a hilarious t-shirt and the only time he can wear it, but still, maybe he could put a sweater on for when the baby actually arrives so it’s not the first thing it sees.
Some people are just naturally competitive. No matter what you do they’ll always find a way to one-up you. This wife learned that when her husband wouldn’t even let what was anatomically impossible for him stop him from throwing his hat in the ring. She posts that she “sent a picture of what I pumped to my husband, this was his reply!”
Okay sir, but is it organic and do you know exactly where it comes from? Nothing can beat locally, organically, and non-GMO sourced food so checkmate.
He Doesn’t Understand “Time Of The Month”
This boyfriend is baffled by human bodily functions and honestly same. We’re all out here wondering why our bodies keep doing the thing and we just want it to stop. Or at least reschedule to sometime next week when it’s more convenient for us. Too bad it’s not a choice…
If only periods worked like that then we’d all save so much money, time, and white pants. He’s just dreaming of a future we all want to happen. But sadly, our white pants will always be on the front lines.
Lost In Translation
Reddit user TkesNoMo realized at the grocery store why we put both the country’s first and second language on labels. Sure, sometimes it can be confusing what you’re looking for, but all you have to do is flip the package over. Please, please, please flip it over. He writes that his “wife asked me to pick up tampons for her, this could be my last post…”
This isn’t even funny because of how badly we imagine this would hurt. We’re really glad that this guy decided to practice his translation skills and read the other side.
Cleaning With The Boyfriend
Reddit user Dishwallah posted this incredible photo with the caption, “this is what happens when you ask your boyfriend to help clean a house,” and we’re all for it. Some people make everything fun, even household chores, and we respect that.
Now that we’ve seen it we can’t un-see it. Do we really need two compartments anyway? How many cleaning supplies do you really need? This boyfriend knows that the key to a clean house is a worry-free mind and body.
This Couple Who Almost Went To Court Together
Not that court. These two had a bit of a miscommunication when they were making plans to meet up later that turned into a hilarious misunderstanding. This is the problem with the English language — everything sounds or is spelled the same.
At least they were worried about him and wished him luck. Though, if we found out our significant other or friend was in court we wouldn’t be upset that they bailed on our plans. Hopefully, they don’t show up to the courthouse to offer moral support.
