9 terms that define modern dating

Natalia Lusinski reports for Business Insider ” When it comes to dating, it seems as though new terminology is constantly being introduced. For instance, talk of ghosts used to be limited to Halloween or reality shows, and now “ghosting” is popular year-round — at least when it comes to dating. To help clarify “ghosting” and other modern dating terms, Business Insider reached out to Antonia Hall, a psychologist, relationship expert, and author. From an etiquette standpoint, Hall filled us in on what’s OK and what’s not in terms of new dating trends.”

How to use dating apps after 40

Julie Brown reports for NBC News “Digital dating is a lot like driving a car. Or so says Joanna Coles, the Chief Content Officer of Hearst Magazines and author of the new book “Love Rules: How to Find a Real Relationship in the Digital World.” Just like one cannot get behind the wheel without learning the rules of the road, you can’t successfully navigate online dating without understanding the terrain. “If you get in a car and you don’t know how to drive, and you don’t know how to signal to other cars what you want to do, then you’re going to end up in [the] hospital,” says Coles.”

The Pros and Cons of Dating Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Heidi Priebe writes for The Observer “Look, I’m not here to tell you who to date. Attraction is an incredibly subjective matter. What entices one person bores another. What repulses you might get the next average Joe all hot and bothered. What you’re looking for as an ENFJ might be entirely different from what your hippy ENFJ coworker wants in a life partner. The goal of type compatibility isn’t to figure out which type you’re destined to be with; it’s to figure out which traits you’re looking for in a partner, and then find someone who exhibits them. But hey, you came here to nerd out. And I’m not here to deny you the simple pleasure of analyzing what each Myers-Briggs personality type brings to a relationship. What you do with this information is up to you.”

What is orbiting? And all the other wacky dating terms you need to know

Rheana Murray reports for The Today Show “If you’re starting to think there are more dating trends than you can keep track of, you’re not alone. From breadcrumbing to zombie-ing, everyone is confused at this point. And now there’s a “new” one: orbiting. What the heck is that, you ask? Well, it’s sort of like ghosting — which, if you’ve been keeping track, is when someone you’ve been seeing suddenly disappears, and stops responding to calls or texts, for example. Orbiting is just like that, except the person continues to follow you on social media. He or she likes your photos on Facebook or views your Instagram stories, but doesn’t say anything. Weird, right?”

‘Orbiting’ is the newest dating trend that will ruin your life

Charlotte Willis reports for the New York Post “Anybody who has been single in the last five or six years knows that it’s a jungle out there when it comes to dating — the apps, the do’s and don’t’s, the creepy new trends. It’s exhausting. In the last 12 months alone, we’ve been introduced to “ghosting,” “stashing,” “haunting,” “Tinstagramming,” “breadcrumbing,” and even the “several night stand.” But just when you thought the madness might finally stop, along comes “orbiting,” the latest trend in dating that’s likely to take a run at your self-confidence. And it has nothing to do with astronomy.”

The best way to find love in the modern world may be to approach dating like dieting

Shana Lebowitz writes for Business Insider “About midway through Joanna Coles’ new guide to modern dating, ” Love Rules,” she offers an analogy between food and sex that will hit awfully close to home for many readers: “In the same way you pick idly at chips promising this is literally your last one, you may be in a relationship that you know isn’t going anywhere, but you’re hungry for love, and it feels less frightening than nothing.” Yikes. Coles is the former editor of Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire magazines; she’s currently the chief content officer of Hearst Magazines.”

Navigating the online dating scene with a strong sense of value

Renee Morad reports for NBC “Know Your Value’s Mika Brzezinski recently explained, “Part of knowing your value is getting value back in the relationship.” But it’s not just about negotiating a salary, it also applies to life and relationships – particularly, when you’re looking for love. In today’s online dating landscape, however, it’s easy for “your value” to get lost in the shuffle of swipes, matches and texts. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Brzezinski recently sat down with Joanna Coles, chief content officer at Hearst magazines and author of the new book, “Love Rules: How to Find a Real Relationship in a Digital World.” They discussed the complex online dating landscape and how women can navigate this area with mindfulness and self-respect.”
