“Microship (n) : an emotional but more often sexual association between two people lasting between 1 to 48 hours”
Ok, let’s face the facts: dating is hard. From the confusion of how to DTR (“define the relationship”) to the simple task of keeping someone from “ghosting” you, millennials are rarely on the same page when it comes to “dating”. It seems like most of us are facing relationships similar to the way we entered high school: completely lost, but pretending like we know what’s up.
Enter the “microship” - Yes, another confusing dating term to add to your list of guy meets girl. Elite Daily posted this hilarious video (watch above) yesterday about this new dating phenomenon, and if you’re anything like me, you can totally relate. Though I have had a few whirlwind flings that could constitute as a microship, I can definitely relate to this experience regardless of the time constraint. Whether you’re “talking”, “hooking up”, “hanging out”, or “bumbling”, getting rejected is never fun - but the reality of getting dumped by someone you aren’t even dating is an even bigger burn to the ego. Hello, awkward.
