15+ Clueless Girlfriends Who Missed The Mark And Might Be Single Soon

There’s nothing better than a love story. While everyone dreams of a romance like Jack and Rose (you know, before the freezing to death part), some relationships are less epic Hollywood romance and more hapless romantic comedy.

From girlfriends who are clueless like adorable puppies to girlfriends whose clueless nature leaves behind a trail of destruction, these women get a C+ for trying—but ultimately failing.

This poor sports fan is mourning the loss of space on his vanity after his girlfriend moved in and her beauty products invaded the bathroom.

Every boyfriend can relate to this scene of bathroom carnage. Cheer up, sport, it gets worse.

You Missed A Spot

Oftentimes guys will have their girlfriends trim their hair as opposed to going to a barber. While it’s done typically to save money, sometimes guys should probably just spend the few extra bucks and hire a professional.

This woman shaved her boyfriend’s hair, but then realized they didn’t notice this pesky patch of hair until after their friend’s wedding reception when “everyone had already seen it.”

When You Want A Blonde Baby

Hoping for a blonde baby, this girlfriend thinks hair dye is the answer to her troubles.

Her boyfriend refers to her misunderstanding of hair color and genetics as a “brain fart,” but considering neither of their families has blonde hair, that’s not a “brain fart,” that’s a brain methane explosion.

Connect Four And Weep

No, this boyfriend didn’t break up with his girlfriend, so why is she so upset?

Bless her heart, but the boyfriend explains that she’s quite drunk and didn’t handle losing a game of Connect Four very well. Wait until you see her reaction to losing a game of rock, paper, scissors.

Forgotten Anniversaries

This girlfriend came home from an out-of-state trip to find flowers, dinner, dessert, and even her favorite TV show ready to watch—but couldn’t quite remember what the special occasion was. In a truly ironic scenario, her boyfriend reminded her it’s their third anniversary.

Well, assuming he doesn’t break up with her, at least there’s always next year?

True Love

It’s no surprise that some girls just aren’t into sports like their boyfriends are, and this cannot be more true for this couple.

While attending a World Juniors hockey tournament, this clueless girlfriend fails to realize that she and her boyfriend are on the jumbotron kiss cam. So, the boyfriend proceeds to kiss (and then chug) the true love of his love—his beer.

Girlfriend’s Guide To The Galaxy

An Ask Reddit thread asked users, “At what moment did you realize you were dating an idiot?” and the top comment was from this (presumably) ex-boyfriend who realized his girlfriend wasn’t exactly the brightest star in the galaxy.

She deserves an astronomy textbook for Christmas.

Stay Tuned For Her Cookbook

From croissants and garlic bread to lattes and ice cream, bread and milk are food staples that people can’t live without. But what about eating them together?

Enter this woman. Her baffled boyfriend explains that she squishes bread so it forms a roll and then dips it into a cup of milk. Somewhere in the U.K., Gordon Ramsay is crying.

Cats In The Kitchen

“My girlfriend allows this…it scares me,” this frightened boyfriend wrote.

Looks like this cat has found their perfect perch on the kitchen stove, but the girlfriend—who’s actively cooking on the stovetop—isn’t concerned about her feline friend getting singed like a marshmallow over a summer bonfire.

Attack Of The Ferris Wheel

What’s causing this sky-high meltdown on a Ferris wheel? Well, before they boarded the Ferris wheel, the woman forgot to tell her boyfriend that she is terrified of heights.

If they ever get married, they should use this photo for their save the date card.

Stick To Ordering Take-Out

This boyfriend and girlfriend duo decided to have a cookoff and he walked in on her cooking a steak. Probably is fair to say he’s going to win this bet.

Remember how I said Gordon Ramsay was crying at the thought of the girlfriend dipping bread into milk? Yeah, scratch that. Now he’s definitely crying.

Reverse Psychology

This Sigmund Freud wannabe thought that a bit of reverse psychology would persuade her boyfriend to get her a necklace for Valentine’s Day, instead of the usual card and chocolates.

Unfortunately for her, she is as disappointed as she is clueless. This romantic moment is brought to you by Hallmark.

Shhhh, It’s Not A Surprise

Hoping to surprise her boyfriend with a new set of power tools, this girlfriend, unfortunately, forgot to mark the package as a “gift,” or better yet, ship it to her parents’ home.

So not only is it a #GirlfriendFail, but it’s also a #HomeDepotFail. Nice going, Home Depot!

HDMI Cabels

A boyfriend received this photo from his technologically challenged girlfriend. Then, she asked the question, “Is this an HDMI cabel?”

So she gets knocked down two points for the following: not knowing what an HDMI cable is when the answer was literally staring at her in the face, and for not knowing how to spell “cable.”

Facebook Memories

Remember being an awkward high school student who posted cringe statuses to Facebook? Me neither, because I’ve blocked them all from memory. Anyways, this girlfriend, thinking that airing her dirty laundry on social media for all to see would coax her boyfriend into defending her Facebook honor, definitely counts as “clueless.”

But people still do this 11 years later as adults, so I suppose we’ve learned nothing, haven’t we?

I Believe I Can Fly (Straight Into Your Face)

From fishing to camping and hiking, a lot of guys love spending time in the outdoors. This boyfriend decided to take his girlfriend out fly fishing and let’s just say they’re not enjoying a fish dinner tonight.

This woman’s big “catch of the day” was her own boyfriend.

Lock And Key

This clueless girlfriend didn’t want to lose the keys to her lock, so instead of getting a keychain as most people would, she devised another plan that seemed great in theory, but not so much in execution.

“This does not bode well for any future bondage experiences for you…” one cheeky Redditor commented.

We Cannot Do It

“So my girlfriend needed my help hanging this,” one boyfriend explains.

Considering that it’s a poster of Rosie the Riveter and her “We Can Do It!” slogan, she’s definitely shaking her head in disappointment right about now.
