Pick Me Girl
Pick me girl refers to women, especially young girls, who are desperately trying to appease everyone, especially members of the male gender.
They are often described as “female simps”, going out of their way for the approval of anyone and everyone.
Paradoxically, this sort of behavior usually results in everyone disliking the girl in question.
“Pick me girl” behavior and characteristics wouldn’t be highlighted and spoken about online until late 2019, when the phenomenon would appear in Tweets, Tik Toks and social media posts.
It started emerging hand in hand with its male counterpart; simp, both expressions used to categorize avid seekers of approval in both men and women.

“Pick me girls” are the central theme of many of the contemporary online content, ranging from YouTube parodies, Reddit discussions, Tik Toks as well as memes all over the web.
