We’re not even two full weeks into 2019, but we’re already developing our new dictionary of dating terms floating around this year. Hopefully, by the time we’ve gotten a complete set of dating trends and terms, we’ll understand how to navigate our love lives a little better. Here are the newest in dating trends:
Pocketing – This is when you’re hiding the person you’re dating from the public…for better or worse.
Cookie jarring– If you’re keeping someone around just in case it doesn’t work out with plan A, that’s cookie jarring.
Prowling – This is essentially someone who ghosts you for a while and then comes back around like nothing ever happened.
Orbiting– We’ve all experienced this one. Your relationship dies out, but they still poke around on your social media and throw you likes every now and then.
Got those? Good. There are sure to be more by this time next week, and who KNOWS how many wacky dating trends will come to light by the end of the year. All we can do is keep track of the faux-pas and hope we’ll recognize them from the start next time around.
