Ah, here goes another trend on our very beloved Tiktok: Beige Flags!
The number of colors in our dating flags exceeded two. Back then it was just red and green, but now we’ve got so many of them it’s hard to keep up.
But there’s something special about the beige though! It seems way more memorable, fun – and frankly – adorable than the rest of the dating flags.
A Beige Flag will mark a fun, quirky, and interesting territory in a relationship.
That being said,
What is a Beige Flag exactly, and how did it all start?
Well, it began about a year ago – on TikTok. A TikTok influencer started using Beige Flags to mark boring behaviors or even personalities.
It evolved quite a lot since then.
Today, Beige Flags seem to mark a behavior that doesn’t belong in the green nor red flag area.
It’s something that makes you feel ‘shook’ for a split second or more, yet, it’s not shocking enough to end the connection.
Here’s a detailed explanation from a fellow TikToker!
Besides having gentle jazz music in the background, the videos joining this trend include quirks, funny things, or simply ‘human’ things that people’s partners do.
Here’s our editor’s favorite!
Being afraid that your alarm won’t go off if you let your phone on silent mode, according to TikTok, is a Beige Flag!
Confusing the meaning of emoji? BEIGE FLAG!
Oh, how about being so impatient to wait for your food that you help the waiters at the restaurant bring it to your table? Yes, a Beige Flag!
Sucking the tears out of your partner’s face when they’re sad to cheer them up is yet another Beige Flag. Yes, sucking the tears like a human vacuum.
The misconception of the Beige Flags?
They seem to be more like cute, adorable, and lovable flags. Some of the so-called Beige Flags represent normal human things.
Some just seem to be completely judgemental views towards quirks that aren’t necessarily accepted by the social standards of behavior, beauty, or quirks.
So far, the Beige Flags have been used to mark super cute habits or quirks, or just used by influencers to make fun of their partners while showing ‘superiority’.
Individuality and autonomy are beautiful things to have.
Especially if one couldn’t care any less about how their habits could be called Beige by the majority of influencers!
It kind of reminded us of Ed Sheraan’s Beautiful People video. Are we really becoming beautiful people?
Give me your worst one, what’s your Beige Flag?!
