The “y tu novio?” season is here, but it’s always nice to know other people understand your struggle.
Some people have been prepping since October.
If things work out, this might be the first year I'm prepared for #YTuNovio season.

And some are actively seeking support from friends, family, neighbors, desconocidos, ANYBODY.

Will be awarding $1000 to the first Hispanic family who doesn't ask me where my boyfriend is when I go to their house. #ytunovioseason

In what world does an abuelita care more about you not having a boyfriend than about all the slayage you’re doing in every area of your life?!

I haven't even fully woken up and I've already been asked if "the boyfriend" was coming over tonight #yelnovioseason

The only thing worse than mom waking you up TO CLEAN is mom asking you about your bf first thing in the morning.
So be smart like these wise guys and prepare with some handy clapbacks.
