8 dating trends that need to die in 2019 — and one you should try

INSIDER Logo By Lindsay Dodgson of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 10: 
  
    There are many dating trends to keep up with.
  
  
    These are the eight that absolutely have to die next
    year.
  
  
    They're immature, outdated, and borderline
    offensive.
  
  
    But there's also a new healthy one you might want to
    try.
  

  It seems like a new modern dating term is spread around every few
  weeks.

  The names are catchy, and generally they describe pretty poor
  behaviour from one or both parties involved - but there are a lot of trends to
  keep up with.

  To save time, INSIDER has come up with a list of the ones that
  absolutely have to die next year.

  Most of the terms describe dating habits that are immature,
  outdated, or even just cruel.

  So if you want to enter 2019 with a healthy attitude to finding
  love, take note - and maybe try "Grande-ing" instead.

A special message from MSN: 

While Christmas is a time of joy for most of us, that's not the case for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. We've partnered with giving platform Benevity to raise funds for two charities - the NSPCC and The Children's Society – to try to help change that. You can help make a difference - please donate now.
