Then there are more modern labels to keep up with like 'ghosting': When someone does the disappearing act because they want to avoid you.
In other words, they are keeping you on their "bench" while they play out their other options.
We get it, meeting parents is a pretty big deal, but they haven’t even introduced you to their friends at a casj setting like drinks.
Soz, girl, but it sounds like you’re being “stashed.” First coined by Ellen Scott of , “stashing” occurs when the person you’re dating doesn’t really acknowledge your relationship in a public way.
(Heads up, delete this bloke and never look back.)This is when someone who previously ghosted you comes back from the ~abyss~ and does something completely random, like following you on Instagram or 'liking' a picture from two years ago, just to remind you that they exist.
If you slide into someone's DMs, it means you're ready to take your social media flirting somewhere a little more private: their direct messages, instead of on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram where everyone can see.
