Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

Benching

Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

I think that all these trends have cool names and these names describe the situation %100. Let's start with "benching". Your imagination will help you to understand what this trend is about. The perpetrators of this trend put people on the back burner. Remember the high school days, there were some girls and guys who made their own "might call roster". Benching is exactly twin version of it. The "bench" metaphor comes from this kind sports action. Briefly, if somebody is benching you, this relationship will not go beyond texting.

Breadcrumbing

Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

Bad news! These breadcrumbs are not the cute kind of leading you into the forest. Actually, it is the exact opposite way. The aim of breadcrumbs is the same, but the person who breadcrumbs you is not in a good faith. This person wants you to take you somewhere you don't know and make you lost there, because this person has deep ego problems inside that you couldn't see in the first place. To say it clearly and shortly, This person gives you enough attention to keep you on hope, but never actually take a step to have a true relationship.

Ghosting

Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

I think this is the most common and popular one currently. So, everybody knows how ghosting feels like. As everything is going perfect, your imaginary lover turns to a ghost. You assume that this is an incidence, but second, third and further days pass alone without any call or text. Congrats, you have just been ghosted.

I saw a great myTake about anti-ghosting 1-2 days ago on GAG. Please have a look on it to prevent ghosting:

Anti-Ghosting Protocol

Love Bombing

Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

When you tell yourself "It is too good to be true", you may be under love bombing. The key words are too fast, too good. You may feel like you fell in love, but the person you have just fell in love is not feeling the same thing as you. This person acts like a perfect lover for a reason. This reason may have a psychopathic or experimental level, but you would never know what it is. Naturally, this kind of relationships end like ghosting and love-bombed side goes into a depressive time for a while.

Zombieing

Most Popular Dating Trends of 2017

In my opinion, the worst trend that I have ever heard about is zombieing. This name has a sense of humor, but the situation is very serious. This trend has two stages. The first stage is just same as ghosting. At the second stage, the ghost turns into a zombie who convinces you again to eat your heart.

Please, please, please be awake and don't be a victim of these.

Waiting for your opinions with experiences. Help us and share your past situation!

  • Worst one i've heard is 'Pulling a pig' basically pretending to a unattractive girl you're into her then sleeping with her and then telling her they've just been pigged.

    • If I were a girl and a guy did that to me... I'll tell everyone he has a tiny dick. lol I ain't playing with that crap.
      But you are right. It will mess up a person's self esteem.

    • I've done a similar version of that. I've boned some ugly bitches because I was horny. Unfortunately, they
      quickly caught the feels and yet I was embarrassed to even be seen in public with them.

  • Being completely honest with myself, I do love bomb all the time. But I have an excuse, I suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder and all of our BPD sufferer's relationships are like exploding supernova stars - they burn very brightly for a short period of time, and end tragically. The star that burns ten times as bright only lasts one tenth as long.

  • White women dating black men (penis size) is really trendy this year heck even social media and and the media in general contributed to this trend with what I call the "black man agenda" whereby every tv show, commercial, etc features black men with pretty white women like the picture you posted under "love bombing".

    • lol that's not a trend, black guys dating white women has been going on for a long time now.

    • Mudsharking is disgusting. I agree that the media has turned the dial up to 11 to influence young White girls to sully themselves with some jungle fever BS. Remember ladies, once you go black, no decent man will want you back.

  • Uhhhggg I may be guilty of the zombieing one with a breadcrumbing twist.
    I hate that these things have names now. Makes me feel even worse about having done them in the past. 😣

  • Had a bunch of bad experience with men. At this point I am not even sure anymore what one is doing - is it benching, ghosting, breadcrumbing or just being a typical guy with a bad day.

    Everything put together made me a bit paranoid and constantly waiting for some bad shit to happen. :( Dont know how to pull myself out of it...
