Dating Vocabulary Increases
It seems that modern dating has evolved a new vocabulary. This new jargon has not been of use to me for more than 30 years. But, in the interest of popular culture education, the following dating terminology is offered. For example, “bread-crumbing” does not refer to Hansel and Gretel but to “when… someone sends a consistent stream of really complimentary texts including sentiments such as ‘missing you’, , but does not follow up with plans for a meeting.” We used to call this ‘teasing’ or ‘leading someone on.’ A more serious term is “stealthing.” This term defines the act of males removing a condom during sex without obtaining a partner’s permission.” A Yale University law student invented this term through research and found the practice to be widespread .
