Huge T-shirt ponytail gf
The present gf du jour is one with a ponytail who wears an enormous T-shirt.

Maybe probably the most well-known of all of the gfs is the goth gf, who can even come within the type of a ‘large titty goth gf’ or ‘small titty goth gf’.
It’s thought to have come about on Tumblr in 2014 when a person posted about his gf, saying ‘bb ur fingers r so chilly’, to which his goth girlfriend replies ‘that me soul.’
It actually took off, nonetheless, when a pet hen referred to as Kiwi obtained a goth gf referred to as Siouxsie, and the web flipped out, seeing simply how fantastic the love of an excellent goth lady could possibly be.
Since then, you’ll see many an account with the ‘goth gf’ moniker.

Let’s step into the surreal with this one, because the aborted gf meme began life as a real and earnest image posted to the prolife subreddit.
The thought was that an ideal gf might have existed on this planet, and would cook dinner you sizzling meals and – weirdly – be ‘like twins’ with you.
Nonetheless, there isn’t a gf, as a result of she was cruelly aborted by her plan-having mum. Naturally, it blew up and the aborted gf took on a brand new, a lot funnier, existence. It’s a reasonably great way for unhappy dudes responsible girls (even people who don’t exist) for the very fact they don’t have any buddies and might’t eat a vegetable, although.

Shopping for gf
Probably the most profitable romancers within the standard MMPORG (massively multiplayer on-line role-playing recreation), Runescape, have been those that had some huge cash and will purchase companions.

Membership Penguin/Minecraft gf
On the subject of digital companions, many individuals have additionally been speaking about their gfs from Minecraft, Membership Penguin, and different on-line video games.
They taught us love (or presumably being flippantly groomed), loss, and most significantly, materialism.
Whoever had extra objects and extra availability of being on-line was the most well liked property. These of us whose dad and mom wouldn’t fork out for upgrades misplaced out… And that damage nonetheless lingers.

It’s no secret that psychological sickness is fetishised in girls, with males throughout Tinder in search of women with ‘daddy points’ or another horrifying factor they discover attractive as a result of they watched a Tarantino movie as soon as.
Fortunately, the depressed gf trope is one that ladies don’t want males to prescribe to them.
As an alternative, we will all lay in mattress being unhappy infants and doing sheet masks as self care and now not really feel dangerous about it. In reality, ‘depressed gf’ is now our complete character – even when single – and there’s nothing anybody can do about it. Additionally don’t ever hit on us once more.
what they don’t inform u about having a depressed gf is that at any given level she might have bangs and that’s simply how it’s now

TFW no gf
Ouch, proper within the feels.
Popularised by guys on boards unhappy that they have been going to be ‘ceaselessly alone’, it means ‘that really feel[ing] when [I have] no girlfriend’ and is now stated in a largely ironic method.
It’s usually accompanied this an image of the ‘know that really feel’ man, and adopted by an oddly particular method they’d like their best gf to be.
Those that TFW no gf unironically are usually dragged, which is sensible given no one owes you something. You probably have no gf, go on the market and hang around on the ponytail and massive T-shirt retailer till somebody takes a shine to you, as a substitute of crying about it on-line.
