Dating someone new is like starting a new TV show: Whether you're totally into it or kind of ambivalent, you probably wish you could just skip ahead to season three, when you understand the characters and actually know what the heck is going on. And IMO, even the best TV shows sometimes get off to an iffy start in season one. (I'm looking at you, Parks and Recreation.) But have no fear, awkward daters. If your romantic life feels as tense as Parks and Rec's first season, then these memes about the awkwardness of dating will assure you that you're definitely not alone.
From terrible dating app messages to unspoken texting rules, it seems like the pitfalls of modern dating are exponentially increasing. You might send a confessional text intended for your BFF to your crush instead. You might unintentionally like a date's Instagram post from 2015. You might come across an ex's profile on a dating app and accidentally swipe right. No matter what dating faux pas you've committed, I can pretty much guarantee that someone's done something even more embarrassing... and if not, then hopefully you can turn your experience into a viral meme someday.
