The 10 Most Relatable “Distracted Boyfriend” Memes Ever

Rarely does a stock photo become a ubiquitous meme, but that’s exactly what happened with the Distracted Boyfriend, also known as the Man Looking at Other Woman. Either way, the way that guy is walking with his girlfriend but clearly ogling another woman is not cool.

This meme exploded in popularity in 2017, first on a Turkish Facebook group, then on Instagram, and then finally, in its most well-known form, on Twitter (the man labeled “The Youth,” his girlfriend, “Capitalism,” and the other woman, “Socialism”). Soon, people everywhere started labeling the photo in highly relatable ways.

Here are the best 10 Distracted Boyfriend memes that we can’t get enough of.

If you’ve ever had a cat...or been around a cat...or heard of cats, you know this meme is so true. Also true for small children and brand-new toys.

When we were in middle school, this was the preferred method of writing your “esses” and if you didn’t know how to do it, you weren’t cool. Plain and simple.

There is no song that’s more perfectly summed up by a meme than this. Period.

Sometimes you’re not even finished with the first when you start inhaling the second. Ice cream sandwiches are just that good.

This about sums it up. Being a self-doubting artist is hard, no matter how outwardly successful you are.
