If there's one thing that the Netflix adaptation of To All The Boys I've Loved Before taught fans, it's that some dating experiences really are universal. And the 11 best To All The Boys... memes on Twitter definitely prove that. Since the film's premiere on August 17, memes have poured in on Twitter, and even two weeks later there are no signs of it slowing down. The format is simple: It plays on the title of the movie, tacking on a specific dating experience from which the poster learned. The best part is, as increasingly niche or hilarious or uncomfortable as the memes get, it only makes them more relatable.
Everyone on the Internet that's dated a guy has totally encountered one of these dudes before — be it the dorm room poster guy, or the "You have to try It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!" type, or the "If you finally read Watchmen, then you'd know" man. The meme isn't limited to aggravating dating experiences either. As popular internet-isms are wont to do, it's since taken on a life of its own. The To All The Boys I've Loved Before meme can be used for gripes, but also puns, surrealist jokes, and as a generally healthy outlet for all the growing pains that come with learning how to date.
And, after scouring the Internet, here are some of the best To All The Boys... memes from Twitter:
1. This Move That Defies Description
The pre-wedding DM slide is enough to make you think the internet was a mistake.

9. Therapy Would Save Everyone A Lot Of Time

Rest assured that no matter who you are, or where you're from, someone else has had the same frustrating, illuminating, delightful, and thoroughly ridiculous dating experience as you.
