My high school self can relate to pretty much all of the actions found in this Girl Next Door meme. After all, who didn’t preplan conversations with a crush or act dumbfounded when a cute girl spoke to you for the first time? This emerging image macro pretty much documents the lives of guys during puberty and its proliferation is no doubt imminent when you consider how many socially awkward men are on the Internet.

The Girl Next Door meme features actress Zooey Deschanel, which is totally appropriate as she is most men’s dream girl and she induced the strange actions found in this image macro in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character in (500) Days of Summer. Heck, I’m sure women everywhere would turn into bumbling fools if they encountered the stunning movie star. Stats for Intimidated Suitor Image Macros Trending: Older & Average
