Twitter meme 'knows a spot' for some absolutely terrible dates
With the coronavirus pandemic keeping us home for the past few months, going on dates and visiting new places have become but distant, fond memories. A new Twitter meme is now softening the sting of social distancing, reminding restless singles that, even if we could go out, trusting your date to bring you somewhere spectacular usually isn't as romantic as it sounds.
In the meme, Twitter users jokingly call people out for claiming to "know a spot," the phrase suggesting they're taking their date to an exciting surprise location for some private time together. However, instead of an intimate restaurant, secluded beach, or shady park, the inept Romeo takes their partner to a markedly less conventional date spot.
While some are still sweet or merely unexpected, most locales in the meme are more upsetting, underwhelming, or abstract. Taking your date to the barn in Midsommar or "for granted" is a great way to make sure they never call you back.
Some Twitter users have put an astrological twist on the meme, calling out various star signs' alleged attitudes toward dating.
The meme has also spread beyond fumbling attempts at courtship, with Twitter users applying it to music, fandoms, and the harsh realities of life in a racially unjust society.
We're all eager to escape the cabin fever, but staying at home as much as you can is still the most sensible option while the coronavirus continues to spread. Going out often doesn't live up to the hype anyway.
