cuffing season is a wonderful, if not slightly superficial, way to get through the winter. Come summer you’ll be ready to cast off the shackles and get back into the thick of the dating world.
Much like not being picked for the football team, benchers are relegated to the reserves list.
A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man whobrags about his money. The kind of man you wantto be with knows that actions speak louder than words.
And thankfully, thereare plenty of those types out there!
They’re probably benching you until someone better comes along. It’s the act of suddenly ceasing all communication with the person you’re dating, but no longer wish to date.
This includes ignoring all messages, calls and other forms of communication.
One of the more recent terms to emerge from the quagmire of internet dating might just be the most horrendous one yet.
The term doesn’t describe a fetish for rolling your potential partner in food, but more the act of leading a date on by contacting them intermittently in order to keep them interested.The incredibly romantic idea is that if the you’re waiting as the back-up option should the dater’s first choice pull out for some reason.If you’re the one being benched, look out for a dater who is reluctant to be exclusive.(In fact, he and I are quite content with a little breathing room to figure out if we want to pursue things more seriously, thank you very much.) It’s because, once again, the internet has given a cutesy name to a relationship behaviour people are unhappy with.Think about it: There’s a litany of one-liners that we give certain relationship behaviours.They don’t want to look like the bad guy, and yet they are quite obviously not interested in taking things further.
