If you spend a lot of time with this infamous bird app, you know that despite its flaws, you can count for a good laugh on Twitter. I remember crying and laughing when Black Twitter made fun of the idea that the COVID vaccine would prevent black people from developing superpowers.

Likewise, Book Twitter has its share of true gems. Earlier this summer, literal users explained why they would delete their dating apps. The trend was to say you’d rather meet someone the old-fashioned way (insert a hilarious romance anecdote). (My personal favorite was “he loves me dearly, I could never be persuaded to marry him.”)

Well, friends, Twitter is back. This time around, users share what they learned from romance novels. Have fun laughing at this compilation of the top tweets, while you may also get some great book recommendations.

If romance books taught me anything

Most of these tweets are quoting others so you can get a 2 for 1 laugh! For example, you know what happens when you start dating a man AND how that man will smell.

And if we could only go back to Regency England, we would surely be well married.

If romance has taught me anything, it is that there were thousands of good-looking young nobles in Regency England, and 75% of them were without a woman for too long when they met the heroine. (The other 25% are in bed with a woman who is not the heroine on page 1.)

When you look them in the eye, when they put your hair behind your ear, watch out!

If romance taught me anything, it is that if you notice the color of the spots in someone’s eyes and you take out a breath you didn’t know you were holding, hold on to your damn hat.

Be careful though. These lovers don’t need close proximity to woo you.
