Millennials are not known for our flirting abilities. I mean, we’re the generation with Tinder, which let’s face it, is deciding whether you like somebody or not based solely on a picture of somebody. And believe me, they almost never look like they did in the picture. I’m probably guilty of subconsciously catfishing myself at times, I’ve always known I’m an ugly dude but it’s difficult to measure the extent of it.
But if there’s one thing that we millennials are very good at, it’s making fun of ourselves. Check out these tweets.
I don't flirt. Flirting is a social construct created by the patriarchy to oppress and enslave women. #MillennialFlirting

Hipster-hating is a common pastime of the cynical millennial.
Why don't we go for cold brew coffee and you can show me your unicycle's Instagram and I'll talk about my huge beard. #MillennialFlirting

These apps are no good for you.
#MillennialFlirting I swept right on Tinder when I first took notice of you. We were meant to be.

Student loan is the epitome of Millennial existentialism.
You look like the kind of person that I would want to spend the rest of my life paying off my student loan debt with. #MillennialFlirting
