WHEN it comes to dating, we’re all familiar with ghosting, and even breadcrumbing and benching have entered our vocabulary.

But there is a whole new set of dating terms for singletons to get their heads around in time for the New Year.

Forget ghosting, these are the new dating terms Tinder users need to get their heads around

Dating app Plenty of Fish has revealed the seven new dating terms to emerge in 2020 to the MailOnline.

So get ready to be glamboozled – and to yellow card them when you are.

CASPERING

Ghosting is what puts a lot of singletons off entering the dating pool with the fear of being given the silent treatment from a date.

If you're dressed up, but have been stood up then you have been glamboozled

But just like the animated ghoul Caspering implies a friendly form of ghosting by giving your match some warning before doing a disappearing act.

FLEABAGGING

Fans of the BBC show will be well aware of Phoebe Waller Bridge’s many (many) dating disasters.

And this dating term is for anyone suffering the same fate, with Fleabagging referring to those who consistently pick the wrong men.

GLAMBOOZLING

Most of us will dial up the glamour when it comes to a first date, whether that’s a fresh haircut or perhaps a whole new outfit.

But if you’re stood up, or bamboozled, having pulled out all the stops, well you have just been glamboozled my friend.

OTHER DATING TERMS TO GET YOUR HEAD AROUND

  • BREADCRUMBING: Sending out flirty but non-committal messages to keep a potential lover just interested enough. Imagine leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for someone to follow.
  • CUFFING: Serial singles pairing up for the colder months, when opportunities to get some are fewer and further between.
  • DEEPLIKING: Showing you like somebody by scrolling back through their social media pictures and posts and liking them from months or even years before.
  • E-FIT: When your social media posts and pictures are carefully curated so they serve as an online dating profile.
  • FBO: Acronym for making a relationship “Facebook official”.
  • GHOSTING: When all communication from the person you are dating suddenly ceases, with no explanation as to why you have been dumped. Savage.
  • HAUNTING: When a ghoster starts liking your posts or even resumes following you on social media from beyond the grave. See also “zombieing”.
  • LAYBY: When you date somebody who is just about OK while flirting with better options in the fast lane.
  • MONKEYING: When you move from one relationship to the next without any time in between, like a monkey swinging from the branches of a tree.
  • PEACOCKING: Dressing up for Instagram, or even IRL, to gain attention, like how peacocks use their tail feathers to lure a mate.
  • SLOW-FADING: A supposedly kinder version of ghosting, where you slowly wind down contact with the person you have been dating, leaving longer and longer between your replies.
  • UNCUFFING: Winter is over! Ditch your “cuff” in time for a summer of love.
  • ZOMBIEING: When a ghoster suddenly resumes communication out of the blue, as if back from the dead.

FLASHPANNING

The first few months of dating are normally referred to as the Honeymoon period, with nothing to muddy the waters.

However, inevitably all couples will eventually run in to disagreements and while most will muddle through a flashpanner will jump ship as soon as things get tough.

YELLOW CARDING

Like in football producing a yellow card in a relationship is a way of giving your partner a warning.

While it’s not quite dumping territory, you’re letting them know that if the behaviour continues a red card may come in to play and the match will be over.

EXOSKELETON-ING

If you are approached by a partner’s ex over social media then you have been a victim of an exoskeleton.

The term refers to your partner’s skeletons coming out of the cupboard.

CAUSE-PLAYING

For many of us, once a partner becomes an ex they disappear for good, however a cause-player refers to one who messages you out of the blue.

But rather than confessing pent up feelings, this ex is looking for a favour from you.

In other relationship news, a polyamourous couple claim that yoga stops them from becoming jealous.

And millions of Brits hide their jealousy admitting not even their partner knows the “real them” according to a study.

Plus this bloke tried to get a date by setting up a Twitter account dedicated to his cooking.

‘Teen Mom 2’: Kailyn Lowry Says She Has to Move and Change Her Phone Number After Fans Cross the Line

Published

By

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry told fans on Twitter she has to move and change her phone number because some fans “can’t respect privacy” and boundaries. Although some fans have been nice to her, she asked her followers to stop sending letters to her home. Lowry’s comments came moments after she shared a screenshot of a text conversation she had with someone she did not know.

On Friday, Lowry shared a screenshot of a a text she received from someone named Lori, who asked how her children were. Lori claimed she got her number from a Chris, possibly referencing Chris Lopez, the father of Lowry’s youngest son Lux, 2. “Y’all are f— crazy. Good luck,” Lowry texted the person, whose number was not obscured in Lowry’s tweet.

Moments later, Lowry said she planned to move again because of overzealous fans.

“I’m moving AGAIN and changing my number because y’all crazy f— can’t respect privacy & boundaries… and don’t try to tell me it comes with the territory because it certainly f— doesnt,” she wrote.

“I love those that have been so good to me and sweet to my kids. I really do. But please do not come to my home. Please do not send letters to my address. I have email. I have DM. Please,” Lowry added in a second tweet.

Fans later pointed out that while Lowry is asking for privacy, she does have a history of sharing the phone numbers of others when trying to make fun of text conversations she has with strangers.

“LMAO didn’t you just harass another woman by releasing her phone number like, last week. What goes around, comes around honey,” one person wrote.

“But you just posted someone’s number so [shrug],” another wrote.

“Your tweet before this was posting someone’s phone number to your 1.4 million followers. You reap what you sow,” another wrote.

“Wait, it’s okay for you to share someone’s number though! No ones personal info should ever be shared or posted on social media, you’re no exception,” another chimed in.

While the Coffee Convos podcast host is in the middle of moving again, MTV aired the latest Teen Mom 2 reunion special. In one segment, Lowry told hosts Dr. Drew and Nessa Diab there is “no co-parenting right now” with Lopez.

“Right now, he is just working and going to therapy as far as I know. Working on himself,” Lowry, 27, said. “And I know he will see Lux when the time is right.”

Lowry has two other children – Isaac, 9, from her relationship with Jo Rivera; and Lincoln, 6, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.

Lowry also discussed her close relationship with co-star Leah Messer.

“I think that helps because we not only became young moms together, but we are sharing this unique experience that a lot of people can’t really relate to, and it comes with a lot of ups and downs,” she told Dr. Drew and Diab. “So I think it intensifies the bond that we already share as young moms.”

Kylie Jenner Revives Her ‘Rise and Shine’ Song for Live Performance at Justin Bieber’s Charity Event

Published

Kylie Jenner revived the “rise and shine” meme with a surprise performance. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians billionaire made a memorable appearance at Justin and Hailey Bieber’s charity event, “The Biebers x LIFT LA x Inner-City Arts,” and walked to the mike to sing the hilarious moment the Internet was obsessed with earlier this year.

In the clip published Friday night, which has already been viewed 2.6 million times, Jenner surprised the crowd when she walked to the mike and sang the two words.

Before she could finish the audience cheered loudly, and Justin and friend Jaden Smith were spotted freaking out at the hilarious moment.

Fans of the celebrities were ecstatic to see Jenner revive the Internet moment, as well as cheer for Justin looking happy.

“Justin looks so happy omg my babyyy,” One fan wrote on Twitter.

“The way justin and jaden started jumping tho [four crying laughing emoji] protect him at all cost [hearts emoji],” another user commented.

“at an art gallery, she was the real art,” another user said, referring to Jenner.

The viral moment arrived back in the fall, when Jenner posted a video touring her Kylie Cosmetics offices. At the end of the video, she went to wake up daughter Stormi and sang “Rise and Shine” as she turned the lights on where she was sleeping.

The moment went viral and caught the attention of fans and celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande. The reality television star even sold merchandise inspired by the meme and rumors swirled she was looking to trademark the phrase. While those rumors were never confirmed, Jenner did have fun online with the popular meme, even reenacting it while visiting her brother Rob Kardashian. He posted the hilarious moment on his Instagram in a rare photo since he has been staying off the spotlight.

She had to clear up rumors weeks after the viral moment when report surfaced she was sending “cease and desist” letters to a small business using the phrase.

“Guys, please don’t believe everything you read,” Jenner tweeted in November. “I have not sent any Rise and Shine cease and desist letters. Rise and Shine was an unexpected moment.. I had a lot of fun with it, and I have laughed so hard seeing everyone’s memes since the video came out a few weeks ago.”

“There are no lawsuits, no cease and desist letters,” she added. “Happy Sunday.”

Hallmark Channel Viewers Petition for Network to ‘Reject’ LGBTQ Movies and Commercials

Published

By

The conservative advocacy group One Million Moms launched a petition to keep the Hallmark Channel from airing commercials and movies featuring LGBTQ characters and themes. The group launched the petition after hearing from viewers that the network aired a commercial for Zola.com, which shows two women kissing after being married. In the petition, One Million Moms asked the network to “stay true to its family friendly roots” and ignore pressures to include same-sex couples in their content.

“The Hallmark Channel has always been known for its family friendly movies. Even its commercials are usually safe for family viewing. But unfortunately, that is not the case anymore,” the One Million Moms petition reads. “Recently, One Million Moms received concerns about Hallmark airing a commercial from Zola.com in which two lesbians are shown kissing at the end of their wedding ceremony. Similar concerns from regular viewers are posted on an online complaint board for the Hallmark Channel.”

The petition cites comments from two viewers, including one who complained that the commercial “ruined” the network’s reputation.

At the end of the petition, the group notes that there is no concrete evidence of Hallmark including LGBTQ characters in its movies yet. However, the group wrote, “Please sign our petition asking Hallmark to do what is right and reject airing movies and commercials with LGBT content!”

After more than 2,500 people signed petition, One Million Moms claimed its representatives spoke with Crown Media Family Networks CEO Bill Abbott who said the commercial “aired in error” and it will not air again.

“The call to our office gave us the opportunity to also confirm the Hallmark Channel will continue to be a safe and family friendly network,” the group said. “Praise the Lord!”

Zola later told Yahoo Lifestyle it has pulled all of its advertising from Hallmark. The company’s chief marketing officer, Mike Chi, defended the commercial and said they have no plans to change their marketing campaign.

“The negative feedback is an outlier,” Chi said. “We want to make sure that Zola is a place where everyone feels welcome and feels like they can be supported.”

One Million Moms isn’t the only group to call on Hallmark to not include LGBT families in their content. More than 40,000 people signed a Life Site News petition titled “Tell Hallmark No LGBT Christmas movies!”

These petitions have come as Hallmark has been criticized for a lack of diversity and inclusion in their made-for-TV movies. In November, Michelle Vicary, executive vice president of programming for Crown Media Family Networks, told The Wrap they are “continuing to expand our diversity.”

“We are looking at pitches for LGBTQ movies … and we are looking to expand and represent the United States as a whole,” Vicary explained.

Abbott also told The Hollywood Reporter they were “open” to doing any movie, including ones with LGBTQ lead characters.

“The reality is when you produce as much content as we do — which is 100 movies a year, five original primetime series, a daytime lifestyle show that’s two hours a day, 52 weeks a year basically live to tape … and countless specials — there’s only so much time in the day,” Abbott explained in November. “And while we want to put on and we believe that we do create content that is beloved really throughout the country it’s not always the easiest process to make every situation fit the mold for every individual who even wants to work with us or wants to watch a certain segment of the audience on our channel.”
