In the age of online dating apps and social media stalking, a whole new, confusing love language has developed. Relationship expert and author of “How to Be Irresistible to Men” Michael Banovac is defining a few new dating terms that are hot this summer. 

1. Freckling 

Freckling means summer love. But the problem with summer love is you never know when it’s going to end. Once it gets cool and you don’t necessarily hear from the person again, you’re left with the, “what happened?” Well, it was a summer fling and that’s freckling.  Just remember – freckles are harmless if you don’t let them get under your skin. 

2. Situationship 

A situationship smells like a relationship, it looks like a relationship, but technically you’re not in a relationship. You’re not officially boyfriend and girlfriend. Michael says if you do everything together, besides attend family functions or important events, you’re probably in a situationship. 

3. Daterview 

A daterview, as you might’ve probably guessed, is a combination between a date and an interview. If you’re on a date being barraged with questions about your career and you feel like you should have brought your resumé, it’s a daterview. 

4. Matrimania 

This last term describes your friends, guys and girls, that you talk to and all they talk about is getting married. It sounds like their number one goal in life is to get married. Michael says most people who have matrimania bring up marriage on the first date. 

5. Nonversation 

And finally, we bring you a nonversation. This happens when you’re on dating apps and it goes nowhere. “It’s the pen pal of this century,” Michael explains, “where all they do is talk to you online and they’re hidden behind their profile because they’re too afraid to actually take action and ask you on a date.” If no plans are made after a few text threads, you might be wasting your time. 

So, there you have it. Next time your friends tell you all about that awkward first date or that summer fling, you’ll be all caught up in today’s dating lingo.
