Generation Z is currently revealing the embarrassing things they’ve done to get the attention of someone they like – and it’s leaving Millennials feeling pretty smug.

Social media is currently awash with videos shared by young people in their twenties participating in a new online dating trend.

The “I Remember When I Lost My Mind” trend involves young people sharing the embarrassing things they did to “get their crush’s attention.” Unfortunately, most of these things were unsuccessful.

Although almost everyone has done something stupid on the complicated road to love, there is one big difference between Generation Z and all generations before it: technology.

Yes, there is actual footage of these failed romantic gestures, and as you can imagine, they are all cringe-worthy and highly entertaining.

But while Gen Z’s tragic dating confessions capitalize on TikTok views, Millennials watch from afar, many thanking their lucky stars that “social media didn’t exist” when they were angst-ridden, hormone-fueled teenagers.

The videos, all of which are tailored to the 2006 hit ‘Crazy’ by Gnarls Barkley have understandably attracted a lot of attention – largely due to their hilarious and desperate nature.

In a throwback to her teenage years that has garnered nearly 40 million views, a woman shared a clip of herself dancing erratically to impress a boy.

“I remember when I liked a guy who had a thing for dancers, I created a private story just for him and posted this,” she wrote under the hilarious clip.

Thousands of comments quickly poured in. Many called the video “shocking” and said they would never share it.

“This has been haunting me all night,” one person remarked.

“In my day, we would log in and out of MSN, hoping to get their attention,” said another.

Another said: “I would take that with me to the grave.”

Another woman admitted that her crush never spoke to her again after she sent his mother a video of herself singing his “favorite song.”

“He told me I ruined Bruno Mars for him and that I should never talk to him again. I thought I did a pretty good job,” she captioned the clip.

Many were quick to laugh at her misfortune and said she had “definitely lost her mind” when she sent the message.

“Stop, the FBI couldn’t get that out of me,” one commented.

“This is the most painful thing I have ever seen,” claimed another.

Another claimed they were arrested after her crush said he “liked girls who had been in trouble with the police.”

In an attempt to convince him that she was a “bad girl,” she wore a face mask and gave him the middle finger in an entirely monochromatic outfit.

The clip, which has been viewed over 12 million times, provoked a similar reaction from others, with some declaring: “You are very brave to post that.”

Judgmental millennials have also left a flood of comments on the videos, mostly expressing their relief at not having had a phone as a teenager.

“My biggest criticism is that there was no social media when I was a teenager,” one noted.

“I’m 37 and did some stupid things when I was younger but luckily none of it was caught on film,” mused another.
