We Are Not The Same Memes hit Twitter running in fall 2019, and consist of self-aggrandizing comparisons between people competing for romantic partners—though they’ve devolved into self-roasts of the highest caliber.
The script of this meme goes something like, “you’re in their DM’s, I’m ______. We are not the same,” with the understanding that while the first person is merely talking to them on social media, the one making the statement is the true object of their affection.

The We Are Not The Same snowclone—which knowyourmeme.com defines as “phrasal templates in which certain words may be replaced with another to produce new variations with altered meanings, similar to the “fill-in-the-blank” game of Mad Libs,” and the funniest of them end in a self-deprecating punchline.
