Dating terms and rules

Does the thought of having a no-strings-attached relationship excite you?

With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.

This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.

Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries.

I only recently learned about this one, but haven’t we all experienced this? This happens when someone is gone from our lives for a long time, but then suddenly pops back into it to “check on us.” However, we know it’s because that “something new” they went chasing didn’t work out after all.

Then there’s the newest term I learned, known as “benching.” We know we’ve been benched when we’re dating someone who only calls us when something better isn’t on offer.
