The hardest part about dating today isn't finding someone to go out with, it's keeping up with all the new vocabulary terms used to describe dating today. Even though Orlando was recently named on the the best cities for singles, it doesn't mean dating is all that easy. Well, PR Newswire shared a story that the dating app Plenty of Fish just put together sharing their predictions for dating trends in 2020.


1.  Cause-playing- This is when a casual relationship ends, but the person eventually circles back to ask for a favor, like going to a show they have tickets to or supporting their Kickstarter.  61% of people say this has happened to them.


2.  Eclipsing- This happens when you adopt the interests and hobbies of the person you're dating and pretend you've always liked them too.  45% of people have done this.


3.  White clawing- Where you stay with someone you find boring, only because you find them super hot.  27% of people have done this.


4.  Yellow carding- When you call out someone for their bad dating etiquette.  27% of people have done this.


5.  Dial toning- This is kind of like pre-emptive ghosting, where someone gives you their number, then ignores every call and text you ever send.  60% of people have had this happen to them and 35% have done it to someone else.
