6 Dating Trends for 2024 That Will Make You Want to Be Celibate
Plenty of Fish released its annual list of new dating trends they expect to see next year.
They also have some new terms to help singles understand the dating pool. Which we will get to in a moment.
But before we get there, let’s talk dating in the new millennium. These dating trends have emerged in the last decade, and boy, are they infuriating.
Ghosting: This trend is like a magic act, but instead of a rabbit in a hat, you find your date disappearing into thin air! Seriously, can’t people just say, “I’m not interested”?
Zombieing: Just when you thought they were buried in the dating graveyard, they rise from the dead with a “Hey, stranger.” Please, spare me!
Breadcrumbing: They leave a trail of breadcrumbs, making you believe there’s hope, but it’s just a trail of deceit. It’s like dating Hansel and Gretel’s wicked witch!
Catfishing: Ever met someone online who turns out to be a completely different person in real life? It’s like buying a burger in the picture and getting a sad, deflated patty.
Slow-fading: You’re on the Titanic of love, and your date is slowly sinking without telling you. Come on, just admit you’re not into it instead of pretending to be too busy to reply.
Orbiting: They’re not texting you, but they’re lurking on your social media like an alien spacecraft in your orbit. What’s the point?
Benching: You’re like the substitute player on their bench, waiting for your chance. It’s like they have a whole dating roster and you’re just a backup plan.
Love bombing: They shower you with affection, and you’re thinking, “This is amazing!” Until it’s not, and you realize they’re emotionally unstable.
DTR (Define The Relationship): The moment you bring up DTR, they vanish into thin air, avoiding the conversation like it’s the plague. Can we get some closure, please?
But now, there are MORE terms to understand. And they will make you want to be a nun.
