Dating used to be so straight forward, but today there are new rules, and with technology it makes it easier for people to ‘ghost’ each other. Ghosting is when you are texting with someone and it seems you are into each other, and then the person vanishes without an explanation.

But according to New York writer and editor Jason Chen, there is a new dating trend that is worse than ghosting and it’s called benching. This is when you are texting with someone and being flirty, but they don’t always respond, and they never follow through with meeting up or getting together. You might not hear from them for a while and think it’s done, and then they randomly message you saying something nice, and it reels you back in.

Jason explains that the reason why the person appears and disappears in your life is because they don’t actually want to date you, but for selfish reasons they want to keep you around.
