Clever Twitter Meme Playfully Laments The Death Of Romance

In the age of online dating, sliding into DMs, and social distancing, romantic pursuit is looking more like a casual 'wyd' text and less like the elaborate, tenacious courtships we grew up marveling at in Hollywood movies. Not that there's anything wrong with a more straightforward, no-bullshit approach to flirting—the concept of dating lots of different people throughout one's adulthood is much more socially accepted now than it used to be. And as the social conditions change over time, it's only natural that our behavior should change accordingly. The problem is, we're complicated, overthinking humans. We still have to reconcile the realities of modern dating with desire, fantasy, and unrealistic expectations. In 1960, French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan said of love and desire, 'imagine you see in front of you a beautiful flower, or a ripe fruit. You reach out your hand to grab it. But at the moment you do, the flower, or the fruit, bursts into flames. In its place you see another hand appear, reaching back towards your own.' Lacan believed that desire is produced in the margin between one's appetite for satisfaction and the demand for love. He theorized that desire isn't exactly innate—desire is actually mediated by the desire of the 'Other.' And what does this big Other desire? Well if we knew that, then our desire burst into flame like Lacan's beautiful flower. Because it's the very recognition of the object of desire that we lack and therefore seek. Our desire is like an empty vessel that constantly gets filled with the desire of the Other, always changing as the socio-cultural context changes. And so it makes sense then that millennials are unsatisfied with certain normalized social behaviors that have been shaped by new social conditions. Reality is at odds with what we are made to desire—an idealized version of reality that fiction routinely implants into us.

We're featuring a viral Twitter meme that very succinctly illustrates this age-old problem of expectation vs. reality. The meme cleverly takes that familiar 'wyd' text (which is comically concise and yet loaded with implications) and juxtaposes it with absurdly theatrical shows of concern from well-known romcom scenes, television dialogue, and corny song lyrics. It's always 'wyd' and never 'but, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?' It's always 'wyd' and never 'you had me at hello.' It's always 'wyd' and never 'you're like my own personal brand of heroin.' Get it?

Perhaps the best thing about this meme is the level of self-awareness it reveals about the poster. Those tweeting the meme are simultaneously admitting their desire for a vague, idealized version of romance and making fun of themselves for it, which becomes evident in the more absurd tweets. One of the funniest examples of this meme is perhaps the one that uses Anakin Skywalker's infamous line in Star Wars: Episode II—"It's always 'wyd' and never 'I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.'" The notoriously cringey scene was supposed to represent a romantic, intimate turning point in the characters' relationship. Instead it feels more like a terribly awkward Tinder date that would have had a real-life Padme running in the other direction. The decision to insert this line into the meme turns it into a hilarious mockery of its original sentiment. We've collected some of the funniest examples of the trending Twitter meme for your amusement.

Justin Timberlake Roasted For Overdue Apology To Britney Spears

In light of the release of New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears, many have expressed outrage over the way Britney was dragged by the media and ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake in the early 2000s. Although the pop stars dated nearly 20 years ago, fans have been newly riled up over the doc and many have since demanded that Justin apologize for his cruelty towards Britney during the fallout of their very public breakup. Back in the aughts, when men could do no wrong and women were disproportionately scrutinized by the media, the public narrative heavily sided with Justin, which arguably contributed to Britney's tarnished image.

On Friday, Justin posted an apology on Instagram, which has only caused Twitter to roast him even harder. Many argued that lumping Janet Jackson and Britney Spears into one screenshot notes app apology was in bad taste, while others mocked him for waiting decades to say sorry. Though some are satisfied with the singer's attempt to hold himself accountable, the general sentiment seems to be that Justin's forced and lackluster apology is too little too late. He's probably scrolling through Twitter as we speak, thinking, 'the damage is done, so I guess I'll be leaving.'

We've collected some of the spiciest Twitter reactions to Justin's Instagram apology.

Twitter Embraces 'Perfect Couple' Meme Just In Time For Valentine's Day

Oh, February. The month when classrooms transform into a pink, red, white, and heart-covered nightmare. While it started out as a minor Christian holiday, Valentine's Day has gradually morphed into a celebration of love and affection over the last 1,500-ish years. The festivities became more akin to current day in 18th century England, where people began exchanging trinkets, sweets, flowers and, of course, greeting cards with their significant others. This iteration spread rather quickly, and by the 19th century people began to abandon handwritten notes and cards for the mass-produced variety. So, as much as people enjoy blaming Hallmark for commercializing February 14th, they were just going along with the times. 

These days it seems like people are either for Valentine's Day or against the holiday. Some people relish the opportunity to dote on their beloved - showering them with lavish bright red bouquets, boxes of fine chocolates, and maybe breaking out the bubbly. Some couples have even come to expect expensive gifts on the 14th. But there are also a lot of couples who reject the date for its commercial connotations. They find it hokey and unnecessary. Why should there be one specific day to celebrate a connection? They kind of have a point. Strong and healthy couples should be celebrating each other every damn day. 

This year, though, many people will have to forgo the expensive dinner prix-fixe or weekend mini-vacation. This marks the first Valentine's Day where much of the United States is still grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic. What once meant a night on the town has become more of the same: cooking dinner or getting takeout, sitting in front of the TV, and maybe getting lucky. While that may not seem very exciting, it does give couples a chance to reflect on what makes their relationship great - or what makes relationships in general work. 

Twitter's way ahead of everyone in that department. On the site, a meme about "perfect couples" has gone viral over the last week, allowing people to share mostly-wholesome stick figure memes, labeled with traits that seem to fit well together. You know, one person who hates cooking, and another who loves to fatten their partner up. The trend started on February 3rd, when user @obiwanfroggi tweeted the happy stick figures with the labels "can't do math" and "can do math." The tweet quickly went viral, inspiring many more of the relationship-centric memes - many that are much, much funnier than the original. Sorry, @obiwanfroggi. While some of the memes stick with the straightforward theme of compatibility, some of them are pretty absurd, or make references to recent pop culture events, such as Phoebe Bridgers trying and failing to successfully smash her guitar on SNL. We're fans of both iterations and we've rounded up the best right here for you.

All The Best Weeknd Memes From Super Bowl LV

Super Bowl LV was a bit of a doozy. Sure, Tom Brady proved that he's an immortal android, and that he's effectively turned the Buccaneers into Patriots 2: Electric Boogaloo. But the game was boring as hell. The Kansas City Chiefs lost to Tampa Bay in a bit of a blowout. The score, 9-31, was an embarrassing show for the Chiefs, who were defending last year's title. 

While we're sure that West Floridians were a bit more excited than other sports fans, Twitter made the most of the evening by meme-ing the very glitzy halftime show. The night's performer was The Weeknd, a Canadian pop star who got his start with dark bedroom-y R&B and rap. He's since become a huge pop star, working with huge acts such as Daft Punk, Lana Del Rey, and the very meme-able Drake. 

Unfortunately for the Weeknd, who put 7 million dollars of his own money into the halftime show, people haven't really been talking about his music. Instead, at least on Twitter, people are focusing on the jumpy funhouse-esque segment of his set. During this part of the performance, The Weeknd (also known as Abel Tesfaye) wanders around the brightly lit tunnels in a daze, as if he's desperately searching for a way out. Clips of this bit hit Twitter very quickly, and jokesters almost immediately got to meme-ing. Most of the memes are pretty damn relatable, focusing on situations such as looking for ones barfing cat, or looking for your mom in the grocery store as a child. The intense relatability has made many of these memes go viral. We've gone through them and picked out the best, so you can enjoy 'em all at once.
