Everyone is busy these days so it stands to reason that sometimes work gets in the way of dating. But these days, if you are single, there are countless ways to meet someone special. This only translates to the modern dating world being tricky to navigate. Dating has never been easy and now making things even more complex, a new word or phrase seems to emerge on an almost daily basis to describe all manner of unique romantic arrangements. But if you are in a relationship, these lingos could mean danger for your love life.

1. Roaching

When the person you have been seeing is hiding the fact that they have been dating other people, it is roaching. It can be extremely disheartening to realise that the person you have been seeing is not as much into you as you are into them. They are also usually the ones who act and say they are super available every time. If your partner is guilty of roaching, move out of the monogamous relationship. Dating App Anxiety: Ways to Survive a Conversation and Beat Nervousness While Texting.

2. Caspering

You have been dating for quite some time now, and totally into them. Unlike the days when you started off, they take time to reply to your texts. If this happens, they are simply giving you a hint to move on. Caspering is referred to as a friendly ghost conversation instead of disappearing completely.

3. Benching

Benching is when someone keeps a potential partner on the romantic back burner. They do not make any serious moves to deepen the connection, but they don't extinguish the hope of a future relationship either. Be very wary of such people if you are looking for a serious relationship. Dating a Younger Man: Everything Women Should Know Before Committing To Someone Younger.

4. Orbiting

If your ex replies to all your Instagram stories and interact on social media, letting you know that they are around, it is orbiting. This is their way of trying to sabotage you from being able to get over them. If you truly want to move on and date other people, the no-contact rule can be the best defense against such orbiters.

5. Submarining

When an old flame suddenly pops back into your life and acts like nothing happened while they were out of contact, it is submarining. This is basically gaslighting you into digging into their sudden absence as anything suspicious. Looking for Dating App to Have a Partner Older or Younger to You?

6. Phubbing

Have you ever gotten the feeling that your partner is more committed to their phone than they are to you? Welcome to phubbing, which if you break down, would mean phone and snubbing. If your date would rather check their Instagram stories instead of listening to what you are saying, you exactly know what it is.

But the question remains: Do you give these kinds of people a shot again? If you feel that you are perfectly happy in your relationship despite their shortcomings, stick to it. Else, move on!
