Are you still trying to keep up with the situation or the ghost? Here are five new dating terms you should add to your relationship guide.
Dating and love have evolved over time, but the saying, ‘Falling in love is easy, but staying in love is hard’ still holds true. We fall in love with someone quite easily without even realizing it, however, when it comes to staying in that love, it takes heartbreaking efforts. But love really is the most beautiful feeling in the world.
As trends change, dating also evolves and brings new terms and styles of love and relationships. We all need to be familiar with terms like situations, texting, ghosting, and many others that are called modern dating terms. Here is a list of some new dating terms in 2023 to refresh your vocabulary.
1. Delicate discharge
Speaking on social media, this new dating trend called ‘soft goodbye’ is known as a cowardly way to leave your partner. It’s about being in a relationship, but not investing in it. A person falls in love with their partner but is unable to express it. In such situations, instead of confessing the truth, they stop trying in the relationship and leave it like that without investing energy and emotions.
