A new meme is poking fun at society’s relationship expectations using baseball for inspiration.

The first base meme involves users sharing their ideal “bases” in a relationship. Every single tweet begins with sex as the first base, making a point that it is nothing to be ashamed of.

However, what follows the first base is changed by each user, creating some pretty odd scenarios.

Some people’s idea of bases were relationship goals.

Others, not so much.

As usual on Twitter, song lyrics entered the fray…

… including the classic Rick Roll.

So there you have it, a load of new model future relationships. Some are more preferable than others.
