In the past, I have famously (read: not-so-famously) been a little harsh on the entire concept of relationship goals. This, if you are somehow unfamiliar, is the idea popularized by certain Pinterest and Instagram accounts that a relationship must look a certain way to be successful–you know, like, attractive. Well-dressed. Probably heterosexual. Almost always white.

couples, cute, cute couples, goals
But there is at least one thing that Pinterest is not terribly useful for, and that thing is relationship goals photos. Or, rather, it’s not useful for finding relationship goals photos that should, like, actually be your “goals.”

If there is one thing on this earth that I feel passionately enough about to spend the rest of my life thinking, talking, and writing about, it is the concept of Relationship Goals. You know, those pictures and illustrations of conventionally attractive, heterosexual cis couples that one is supposed to see, take note of their apparent attractiveness, heterosexuality, and cis-gender privilege and decide that all of this is worth enough to become a legitimate goal.
