Here’s the 5 New Dating Terms You Need To Know In 2018

February 2, 2018

Ghosting. Stashing. Breadcrumbing. Every year we’re inundated with weird terms that describe how wonderful (or miserable) dating can be. Well we’ve got a bunch of new words for you to start using here in 2018!
 

Flexting
Bragging to impress someone before you meet them online. I know it’s shocking to hear, but men do this the most...63% of women say they’ve received messages like this.
 

Cricketing
This is when you leave someone “on read” for too long. Just search “message left on read” and know everyone pretty much does it to everyone!
 

Ghostbusting
It’s known as the counter to “ghosting.” When someone tries to disappear on you, you keep texting them regardless. The dating website Plenty Of Fish says that 78% of millennials have been ghosted by someone they’ve dated.
 

Serendipidating
If you always obsessed with the idea that something better comes along, serendipidating is your thing. It’s when you put off a date just in case you meet someone you like better. It sounds like a pretty good way to make sure you’re forever alone!


Faxubae’ing
The creepiest of them all, it’s when you pretend on social media to be in a relationship, but you’re actually single in real life. The most common reasons are to make someone else jealous, or to appease nosey family members
