With social media having taken over our lives, real-life relationships are becoming harder to maintain. Romantic relationships are no exception.
It needs no saying that there’s a long way from ‘it’s a match’ to a match made in heaven, and whether you’re dating, have broken up or found someone you’re head over heels for, you probably know that very well. Ask your grandparents, if they are in their happily ever after, how much of a hard job that relationship really is.
Luckily, the internet knows that too. And to ease our broken, tired, and lovesick hearts, there’s a safe place to talk about hard things known as the Relationship Memes Facebook page. According to its description, “it’s a community page offering relationship memes and advice from many perspectives around the world,” so whatever your relationship status is right now, you’re not alone. Scroll down through the funniest memes we selected from this page!#1
RYAN REYNOLDS REACTION TO HIS WIFE
Relationships are tough, there’s no doubt about it. I mean, being in a relationship is probably as hard as being single, and there are equal challenges that come with each relationship status. So if there was one conclusion we could draw, it would be that love is a tricky game.
So imagine a scenario we all know too well: you meet someone you’re into, the person turns into your love interest, and you make the first move. How do you know if you’re doing everything right? Well, James Preece, a leading Dating Expert in the UK who has helped 1000s of single people, shared a couple of tips with Bored Panda in a previous interview.#4
“If you’ve tried being subtle and it didn’t get noticed, then it’s time to change tact,” the dating expert said. “It’s worth noting that they might already be aware of your interest, but they aren’t sure how to react. If they aren’t keen, then they will pretend they’ve not noticed to avoid embarrassment.”
Moreover, James explained that “if they like you then they need it spelled out clearly just in case they’ve got it wrong. Rather than an over-the-top romantic gesture, just ask them if they’d like to go out on a date one evening.” According to James, it doesn’t need to be more complicated than that and they might be curious about just one meeting.#7
At some point, it may become evident that, unfortunately, your love interest is not romantically interested in you. The dating coach warns that if you’ve already tried a few different techniques, then it’s probably a good idea to accept it’s not going to work. “This can often be because you’ve already established a friendship or working relationship. Once you get categorized, then it’s very difficult to get them to change that,” he said.#10
On the other hand, although it is hard initially, this will be healthier for both of you. “If they are constantly talking about the dates they are going on or asking your opinion on partners then that’s a clear sign you aren’t their target. In this case, it’s best to just carry on enjoying their company the way it is and look to date other people instead,” James said.#13
