Deleting my dating apps because I want to meet someone the old fashioned way, via memes

Nothing says ‘old fashioned’ romance like the pizza parlour on Club Penguin

Yes, the devil works hard but people on Twitter who create new meme formats work harder. Recently we have had Matt LeBlanc embodying everyone’s Irish uncle and those weird “the scene the camera man” memes. But this week we have something a little bit different, everyone seems to be sharing what they consider to be “old fashioned” dating.

Dating apps are boring, especially in lockdown. People are wanting to spice up their lives, so they’re going back to basics. From being locked in a tower until you’re rescued by an ogre and his donkey, to reenacting the lyrics to Mr Brightside by The Killers – people are so romantic xxx

Now grab your tissues and cry over these 16 weird, old fashioned romance memes:
