Modern romance can be a bit hard to navigate, especially the older you get. Youngsters are changing the rules of the game and coming up with new terminology that fits with changes in societal norms and dating norms. There’s a good chance you’ve heard a couple of them, so here is a quick refresher in modern dating terminology:

Ghosting :
When someone you are dating suddenly stops all communication, without warning.

Orbiting :
When someone you are dating stops all communication but still finds the time to like your social media posts.

Submarining :
When they ghost you, then come back after a long silence.

Curving :
Turning down a suitor in a direct way.

Someone who feels entitled to date.

Love bombing:
