By now, you've probably heard of the whole "Five Love Languages" theory that people like to throw around. It's generally a pretty sound concept except for the fact that they forgot one very important love language: memes.
Memes are so vastly applicable, yet so perfectly specific at the same time, and anyone who truly enjoys them knows that, like any piece of art, they convey how we feel better than words ever could.
This Is The Kindest Gift Anyone Could Give
If I was trapped in a collapsed cave and people needed to lower necessities to me by rope, the first thing I would ask for would be some memes and a flashlight to read them. Maybe water next.
Distance Means Nothing To Me
You could be living in a different continent or you could literally be sitting beside me on the couch while we're watching The Bachelor, I'm going to send you the meme without verbally acknowledging it at all.
Process My Emotions? Couldn't Be Me
So I get that I could actually think about the emotional impact that my life events have on me, but it's way more fun to post about my very hurt feelings as if they are a joke with a witty caption on my finsta.
Anyone I Date Needs To Understand This
I may take 2-4 business days to answer any text that isn't time-sensitive, but you can expect that I'll DM you at least 20 memes daily spread across multiple social media platforms while you wait for my response.
Give The People What They Want!
I would delete Bumble, Tinder, Hinge, and Going Out In Public To Meet People The Old Fashioned Way in a heartbeat if this app became a reality. Computer science majors, do your thing!
I Am Socially Inept Now
I don't know how to uphold an actual conversation with someone without just bombarding them with memes and talking to them about my life using the same jargon and humorous detachment as memes. It's a genuine problem!
This Is The Best Type Of Compliment
I don't want a man to tell me that I'm pretty or compliment anything to do with my intellectual, emotional, or physical abilities. I want a man who thinks my memes are hilarious.
You're Thinking Of Me?
The best kind of gift you can receive from someone is something where they saw it and thought of you, and memes aren't any different. I'm glad that video of a very thicc cat struggling to get up made you think of me.
If You Can't Handle Me At My Finsta, You Don't Deserve Me At My Insta
My Instagram page is a highlight real of me looking like a beautiful, worldly goddess. If you date me, you're going to get that, but it also comes with the 3 a.m. sobbing while I eat breadsticks in the shower.
I'm Not Saying It's Healthy, I'm Just Saying It Works
Talking through my problems in a genuinely vulnerable way would probably be healthier, but it also is a lot harder than just turning my traumatic experiences into jokes and throwing them on the internet and getting likes for validation.
I Didn't Send You This Many Memes For Only One Response
Imagine having the audacity to only respond to one of the 12 memes someone sent to you while they were bored on public transit after they spent time scrolling and curating these jokes that made them think of you!
When Someone Asks What You Bring To The Table
I only have about three things of value to offer anyone, and they are an extensive collection of screenshotted and saved memes, my weird collection of items that I only bought due to their internet popularity, and a bag of basmati rice.
Have I Been Turned On Because A Guy Was Good With Memes? Maybe
Once upon a time, I dated an older guy who didn't have social media who didn't understand anything I ever talked about. A few months after we broke up, I met a guy who literally always sent the freshest memes to me and I was in love.
This Is Actually The Base Marker For My Friendships
There are few moments in the average person's daily schedule that are specifically carved out for looking at and sending memes: commuting on public transit, waiting in a long line at Starbucks, and dropping a deuce. You better be tagging me in memes during that time.
I Actually Can't Conceptualize My Love Life Outside Of Memes
All of my exes treated me like a joke and now I'm unable to think about love or relationships without filtering it through the lens of online humor and downplaying my emotional reality!
Just Picture Memes? Sweetie, No
I'm so online that I am constantly plugged into content streams from about seven different platforms and I need to share any relevant memes or information with my significant other. If you don't also have all the platforms, get ready for a lot of texts that are just links.
It's About Giving Them And Spreading Joy
You think that sending memes is less valuable than texting someone with your own words? Think again. Every time I send someone a meme, I get excited thinking that they might like it and impatiently await their "LMFAOOOOOOO" response.
Sad Reacts Only :(
Growing apart from someone you were once very close with is hard in a lot of ways, but it's never felt as evidently and powerfully as when you see a really good Spongebob meme that they'd love, but you're not on that level anymore.
You Can't Even Remove Memes From Your Regular Life
No joke, I was sitting in my therapist's office trying to unpack my emotional baggage and intimacy issues last year and I straight up asked her if she thought my trauma was an absolute unit or just a small boi.
In The End, My Relationship Status Is: Meme-ing
Relationships and marriages are cool and all, but have you ever stayed up until four in the morning and been two years deep into a meme pages content and found an archaic meme that just spoke to your soul?
