It’s a real testament to the strength of our desire to pair off that we all continue to deal with the dating world despite kind of hating every minute of it. The hope, of course, is that the ends will justify the means but that in no way detracts from the fact that the struggle is real. At least we get some funny and bittersweet internet jokes about it, though. Maybe that’s the silver lining to this grey, panic-inducing cloud.
Here are 12 tweets about dating and relationships in the modern day that you can laugh/cry along to!

7. Just eat it
Why you gotta be so food?
I cooked dinner for my gf last night and thought I did a good job, until we were watching videos on her phone and a text from her mum popped up that said “I’m sure he tried his best, just eat it”…

Honestly, there’s something to be said for feeling better about the entire ordeal of relationships through vicarious laughter at the Tweets of others. We’re all in this together. Alone. Separately?
