Apparently it’s International Shoot Your Shot Day, and if you don’t know what ‘shooting your shot’ is, these memes will explain it perfectly! See the hilarious tweets about asking your crush on a date — and the tragedy that sometimes comes with it — here!
We’ve all been there: palms sweating, knees weak, on the brink of FINALLY asking your crush out. Then, you finally bring yourself to do it! AKA “shoot your shot.” On April 3, Twitter decided it was National Shoot Your Shot Day, and users lovingly encouraged all of their followers to finally suck it up and ask their object of affection on a date!
Of course, you have to expect the Twitterverse to twist things around a little, so we didn’t see many heartwarming stories about users finally talking to their crush and falling in love! Nope, we got a series of hilarious memes about what it feels like to try and fail at sliding into someone’s DMs — AKA getting “curved.”
#ShootYourShot day. Good luck ladies and gentlemen May you find love or continue to build your confidence by getting curved,” said one encouraging tweeter. Another disappointed lovebird said “when #ShootYourShot is trending and your DMs like your fridge, EMPTY.” Aww!
Here are some of the best #ShootYourShot tweets:

It's national #ShootYourShot day, but I'm ugly so I won't be sliding in anyone's dms, nor will they be sliding in mine ..

Another fan pointed out that everyone online seemed to be waiting for someone to shoot their shot with them, but no one was actually doing the asking: “if everyone is waiting for somebody to shoot their shot, who’s doing the shooting?
#ShootYourShot.” Good point! We’ve found that it’s always better to be brave and just go for it. At least if you get curved, you know it’s time to move on. And hey, you just might make the basket!
HollywoodLifers, did you shoot your shot today, or do you think that’s a stupid idea? Let us know!
