By now, it’s highly likely that every single person in the dating game has been ghosted. It’s not a fun feeling – one day you’re giggling over cocktails and discussing plans for two months from now, and the next day, POOF – it’s as if he evaporated into thin air, leaving you to *seriously* ask yourself “did he even exist in the first place?”
Breadcrumbing, a whole new kind of dating torture, involves someone slowly stringing you along for months or YEARS without ever committing. This might include bi-weekly hookups, sporadic texts or a quarterly expensive dinner date. The main point is, it never actually develops into a real relationship.
The newest term to describe the sh*tshow of the current dating scene is zombieing, which essentially means someone “coming back from the dead”. Chances are, you’ve been zombied, and you might not even realize it. If someone seems to have fallen off the radar, but randomly hits you with a “hey, how have you been” text, you’ve been zombied. If you thought you got ghosted, but realize said ghoster has started watching all your Instagram Stories, you’ve been zombied. If your ex boyfriend from high school starts asking your mom about your current love life, you’ve DEFINITELY been zombied. You get the picture. Stay safe out there.
