Why The Hilarious "He's Not Your Man" Dating Meme Is Going Ultra-Viral

"He's not your man!"

When you first start dating someone, it's important to look our for red flags. Does he take forever to answer your text messages? Then he's not your man. Does he cancel plans at the last minute? Then he's not your man. Is he nice to you but mean to everyone else? Not your man.

Recently, Twitter user @KylePlantEmoji lampooned this all-too-common (though solid) Internet dating advice via a tweet that's gone massively viral. It starts out reasonably enough, telling the ladies that "he's not your man" if he "only responds when you double text," but then gets progressively weirder, until you realize he's describing 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes.

The meme really took off, and soon, people were sharing other "red flags" you should watch out for.

After all, you don't want to end up dating a Hawaiian bobtail squid.

Or a virtual paperclip.

Or a dubious recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers.

Or a raccoon.

St. Michael the Archangel seems all right, but, unfortunately he's dead, and in all likelihood, has a bit of a martyr complex.

And while Lord Byron may seem like a great catch, he's got a lot of red flags.

In fact, the meme has proven to be particularly popular among those who have long waited for the opportunity to reveal obscure information about historical figures in a comical way.

Turns out Ramesses II wasn't so great, after all.

It's always a bummer when you realize the person you're dating is actually a dog.

Or…is it?

And for more great dating advice, don't miss these red flags that people in happy relationships say they're glad they ignored.
