The term “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” is used to describe a female character who is “quirky” and “unusual” but basically just exists only for the development of the male lead. Recently, the MPDG term resurfaced when TikToker Amy Lovatt admitted to bringing a trifle to every party she attends so she came off as “quirky”. She asked Netizens to share their own “most Manic Pixie Dream Girl thing” that they do and the responses are both hilarious and painfully relatable.

What didn’t I do? I used to take my shoes off and splash in every fountain I saw because I was ‘living in the moment’
I wore fairy wings to class a lot and wore vintage ball gowns to punk shows (those poor dresses)
I drew on my converse to show that I was artistic and quirky I also stood pigeon toed so that you could recognize I wasn’t like other girls hehe
My best friend would bring a lemon to every party and very casually eat it.
Bubbles in my purse when I would try to stop smoking, so I would take bubble breaks.
Use something overly utilitarian as purse: lunch box, old camera case, thermos, basket.
Wore coloured contacts everywhere and stared at people like this until they noticed.
I remember laying in the grass while drunk to feel wild and free and it was just in a weird spot to do so and my friend was like “uh can you get up?”
… I only dated people for a month, and in that month I would make sure I changed their life by enrolling them in school or getting them a job…

l used to take books to parties and read while drinking wine while my friends were normal college kids and partied accordingly.
I used to carry 5+ apples in my bag at all times so I could give them out to people. I also had a month in 2006 where I wore roller skates everywhere.

Wore an Elvis Presley T-shirt with an Aladdin looking vest and drank rain water out of mason jars.
I would wear a mini skirt and knee high leather boots, and carry a hiking backpack to parties. What was in the backpack? That was the mystery
I would wear 2-3 cereal box watches at once and put flowers in my docs and tell people I knew how to palm read when I couldnt I’d just make it up.
Used to research unknown bands with terrible music and know just enough about them to seem indie and mysterious.
I would doodle on my backpack and write song lyrics on everything and when people asked what they’re from I’d be like ‘you haven’t heard of them…’

Does reading while walking down the halls at school and running a library out of my locker count?
I would wear thrift store clothes and tell people it was because “I like wearing other people’s stories on me.” *HEAVES*
