Love is the universal language that draws us all together. Everyone understands love, but sometimes it can be tough to express it in the exact right way. That's where the useful shorthand of love memes come into the picture. If you're looking for a great love meme, we have a whole list of them to check out.

What Do Love Memes Mean?

There are two main types of love memes. The most straightforward type simply expresses love, and the other category takes a more sarcastic look at the subject matter.

The meaning of love memes can be complicated even further when other memes are included in the mix, since an understanding of the original meme may be required in order to fully understand the love meme.

How Are Love Memes Used?

Straightforward love memes are used to express love. Depending on the specific meme, it may be appropriate to share one on social media and tag your significant other, or send one via a messaging app.

Other love memes can be used to get a laugh or to make a commentary on the subject of love, the user's distaste for public displays off affection, or other similar purposes.

Examples of Love Memes:

Example #1
Image: A dog staring wide-eyed at a cupcake.
Text line one: I love you
Text line two: More than cupcakes
Meaning: This is a straightforward love meme that could be used to tell someone how much you love them.

Example #2
Image: Grumpy cat
Text line one:  I may be grumpy
Text line two: But I still love you
Meaning: This turns the popular grumpy cat meme into a love meme. Someone could post this as an apology for being grumpy, standoffish, or rude to the person they love, or just to get a laugh.

Example #3:
Image: A small dog struggling in the water.
Text line one: I just popped up
Text line two: To say I love you
Meaning: This is a humorous love meme that could be used in a straightforward manner or as a joke.
