Every woman in a straight relationship has been here. You’re in front of a beautiful backdrop full of good vibes that you want to capture on film. The only problem? Your male partner is the only one to take the picture.
Translation: You get what you get.
Look, they’re trying. Hard? Maybe not.
But there is still an effort to capture a picture. A good one? There’s a possibility you could like the shot, but that possibility is — to quote Flo Rida — “low low low low low low low low.”
The bad-pictures-by-boyfriend phenomenon is so universal that a years-long meme has emerged as a result. Most of these meme entries are on Twitter, where it’s easy to compare photos side-by-side.
Over the past few years, women (and a few men here and there) share the pictures they take of their male partners and compare them to the images their male partners take of them.
And the contrast is incredible.
We’ve rounded up 20 great examples of this meme.
Ladies, if you have a man that takes influencer-esque photos on the ready, KEEP HIM.
