Dating Trends expert, Eugénie Legendre from the dating app happn has the scoop on the new dating trends of 2019 that you need to know about for the year ahead.
So you and that one special someone ended things because “it’s not you, it’s me” or maybe you didn’t, it might have been left a bit unclear and you aren’t sure if it’s on or off. Either way, you have noticed that while you are enjoying the night life and posting on your social media they continuously like all your photos, just so you know that they’re still around and thinking about you. Leaving you wondering, are we – aren’t we? If someone is not quite in your life and not quite entirely removed, then it is likely you are being orbited.
The horrid trend of pocketing is on the rise and you don’t want to be the one whose been stuffed in a pocket by someone you really thought a relationship was growing with. If you aren’t being introduced to his or her friends and family within months of spending time together, then it might be time to open your eyes because you have been pocketed. A pocket-er is only ever available when they want to hang out or whenever their schedules are clear of any public encounters. Make sure you are always with someone who is excited to show off you as new arm candy!
So you have been seeing someone for quite some time and want to have a little extra security, just in case. You start getting a little friendlier with that cutie you spotted in your lecture last week, so you have something to fall back on if it all goes wrong. If you are guilty of this then you are cookie jarring! Give yourself time to get to know someone without the influence of anyone else and if things just don’t work out, then that’s okay – try to understand why and learn from it could give you valuable insight into what you are looking for in the next potential candidate for your affection.
Finally, you got that date you have been dreaming about and it’s going well! You hang out a little more and really start to get to know each other. But wait – all of a sudden they’ve gone?! You haven’t heard from them in days or seen them in quite some time. They disappeared with no explanation and you’re left shattered and confused about what went wrong. Thankfully, your friends finally pull you off the couch and clean that chocolate ice cream off your face and get you to enjoy a night out. But then it all goes full circle when that person you thought you finally didn’t care about anymore appears and acts as if nothing ever happened?! This right here is what we call a prowler, toying around with people’s emotions, so keen to hunt you down one minute but then there’s no trace of them the next. The prowler is always more hassle and hurt than they are worth.
