In other words, the trend’s basically saying that someone can be as good looking as they want, but if there’s even just one lame red flag to go with it, it’s a big fat no.

Elsewhere, some people got very creative with the concept, like this incredible Twilight version by @ladyefron: “He’s a 10 but he’s impossible fast and strong. His skin is pale white and ice cold. His eyes change colour, and sometimes he speaks like he’s from a different time. He never eats or drinks anything. He doesn’t go out in the sunlight.” Edward Cullen was truly  a walking red flag.

Others got meta, referencing previous iconic internet jokes: “She’s a 10 but she asks you if you’d still love her if she was a worm.” Just incredible.


still a 10
