Twitter is often full of some serious foolishness, but every once in a while, the Twitterverse is surprisingly on-point with its wisdom. One of the things Twitter always gets right? Dating. I'm so glad I never have to date again because the struggle is real, stalkers, the struggle is so very real. If you want a summary of what dating is really like, don't ask your friends or read a Cosmo article, oh no. just take a look at these tweet, which are hilarious but so, so honest, too. (A/N: Full disclosure, there are some Tumblr dating posts slipped in here, too. #sorrynotsorry)
1 Friend-zone? Nope!
The relationship zone is the flip-side to the friend zone, and man, I think you gotta be bold to pull off a move like this. Why don't you try it with your crush?
2 Ice Water, Please!
The true progression of a relationship. When you're really comfortable with somebody, you jump right to pizza with everything on the first date.
But seriously, Pakalu is the funniest.
4 Netflix & Dating?
This is actually genius, right? Netflix should get on this and make it happen. Maybe then they could stop raising our streaming rates.
5 Want a Dog?
This is my idea of a perfect date, actually.
6 Yep, Me All over
Always be explicit. Leave no room for misunderstanding.
7 Always Say You're Not a Creep
Except not really because if you have to say you're not a creep, I have some bad news. You're probably a creep.
8 All the Butterflies
DIGEST THEM. SWALLOW THE BUTTERFLIES. POWER PAST THE FLUTTERING.
9 No Talking, Just Creepy Staring
*Braver. But other than that … yep. I remember that.
10 The Lesbian Dating Struggle
This legitimately happens. That's usually a sign for us to pick up our game and back away slowly.
11 Best Dating Profile Ever
I don't know about you, but I totally want to date Jess. Jess is my kind of girl
12 Happens All the Time
What a difference a semicolon makes...
The problem is that it's way too easy to accidentally let out a little poot when you're laughing.
14 Attempting to Flirt
Personally, I prefer Eddie Izzard's flirting technique. Just hit your wannabe boo with a loaf of bread.
16 The Confusion of Flirting
Been there, felt that. Pro tip: if you have to wonder, it usually means you're screaming, not flirting.
