You’re sitting at home scrolling through your Instagram feed and you see one of these.
These kind of relationship memes are constantly popping up all over social media, plaguing millennials and brainwashing the minds of young women with shitty relationship advice. Here are just a few of the relationship memes circulating that you should not believe. WARNING! BS and stupidity overload ahead.
“What’s understood doesn’t need to be explained.”
Because what’s understood should have already been DISCUSSED. Too many young women are too afraid to sit down and converse with their man. They fear discovering something they don’t want to know. This is especially the case when just dating or keeping it casual. Not all ignorance is bliss, ladies.
“I’d rather be a side chick to a loyal man, than a main chick to a cheater.”
Okay, so you’d rather be a side piece to a loyal cheater versus the main chick to a sloppy one? One of the issues with this mentality is that being a side chick is made to be the norm. The more you look at a relationship like it’s a two-piece combo from Popeyes, the more your relationship will resemble chicken shit.
“Deposit your check into his account and wait for your cut.”
Our female ancestors fought for financial freedom for decades, and women are still being underpaid and overworked compared to men. Yet we get this meme. This relationship quote sets us back 50 years. Sorry, the last time I was on an allowance I was in middle school. No thanks.
“Let your man cheat in peace if you aren’t gonna leave.”
Because if you allow your man to cheat you clearly respect them more than you respect yourself.
“A girl that remains loyal without a relationship is the girl you should marry.”
Umm, no. A girl who remains loyal without a relationship is STUPID. It’s unlikely that the guy you are remaining so “loyal” to without commitment will actually commit. Don’t wait around for a man to choose you. If you’re loyal and faithful, it better be reciprocated!
Memes that left me scratching my head…
I can smell the low self-esteem from here. Because “no cheating, no thank you” is how we should measure our self-worth and the sanctity of our relationship.
No, a real woman would beat that ass.
Absolutely! His new home would be with the woman he cheated with – obviously! Goes to change locks.
Any man who is comfortable sitting at home doing nothing while his woman works and holds it down for them both isn’t a man. He needs to go back home to his momma and grow up.
A real woman would leave.
So, what did we learn today? That just because it’s written in calligraphy on cute stock photo does not make it good relationship advice. Besides, if you are taking relationship advice from a meme on IG, you’ve got more work to do than you thought.
