Forever Alone Guy (Also known as F.A.G.) is the only rage-meme that accurately and eternally represents you. This meme is one of many, many hilarious and inventive variations of rage-comics, created somewhere around April 2010. The stories are usually focused around main character with abnormally swollen face, which expresses loneliness and disappointment with his life (in which he is alone). Some of them also includes wannabe-funny word games with main line, which has nothing to do with actual plot. Next to highly overused RAGE, FA also draws its humor from such phenomenons like Trollface, FUCK YEA or Poker Face, and can be easily replaced by almost any of them.
Origin and evolution
Forever Alone first appeared in 2010, posted on unFunnyJunk by a user named Azuul. Eventually the meme outgrew its rage comic origins and became a generalized meme used to describe fedora wearing neckbeards and other assorted losers who would never get laid. It's often used with no visual context at all or added onto an existing image as a caption.
Meme theft and copyright (or, How I Learned to Stop Caring and Commit Fraud)
In 2012, cp connoisseur and shitposting /v/ tripfag Manlytears began claiming that he created the meme, going so far as to file a "legal" copyright for it, using an obviously forged screenshot, and began issuing take down notices to those who use the meme. In addition to receiving credit in Payday: The Heist he managed to force EA to change a dogtag in Battlefield 3 that was showing the FA face. Everything would have probably gone completely as planned if itty bitty Manlettears hadn't bragged to an internet girlfriend about how he didn't really create the meme and if Know Your Meme hadn't called him out on his false claims.
KYM Strikes Back
—Manlytears trying to juggle the roles of both e-lawyer and internet tough guy
Kip was then contacted by an administrator of KYM who confirmed that not only was Manly's copyright not valid, but that he actually attempted to enter a legal battle with Cheezburger, another similar site.
—Manlytears gets BTFO by KYM
Because Manlytears suffers from autism and antisocial personality disorder, he could not take no for an answer.
—Manlet crying and stamping is feet because he didn't get his way
