Dating crumbs

They may be talking to many people online, just for the buzz.

But they never want to meet in real life.” The New York Times calls it “a cousin of the ‘friend zone,’” said Rachel Simmons, an author and leadership coach at Smith College.

” Just as who people are is self-evident, where a person’s priorities lie and what they make time for is self-evident too.

I don’t dispute that we’re busy people living in a busy world.

But, just when you think you've found them, you get "breadcrumbed". A breadcrumber will send countless messages on dating apps, whetting their match's appetite and creating a hunger for more. She thinks breadcrumbing is "pretty normal" these days.

Just like the name suggests, breadcrumbing is akin to leaving a trail of tiny morsels of bread, except the breadcrumbs are actually flirtatious messages. But when it comes to moving online matches offline, she's not fussed.

“It’s about relegating a person to a particular dead end, but one that still keeps them hanging on in some way,” in the article The Agony of the Digital Tease. Unless you are getting a little serotonin hit when those messages come through (hey, we don’t judge), just stop responding!

A breadcrumber will move on to frustrate someone else.

It’s when you get a flirty conversation going…and it goes nowhere.If you’ve ever been in the dating game you’ll probably have at least one disastrous tale to tell.The whole process can be exhausting and confusing: the constant ‘are we/aren’t we?That said, if you’re someone who is doing the whole “I don’t have time for dating / a relationship” but saying that you do want one, or are expecting somebody who deserves better (and will probably keep giving you more of their time in the hopes that you’ll change your mind), to basically put up with you throwing them a bone from time to time, and are even justifying inconsiderate or even shady behaviour on your ‘busyness’, it’s time for you to go on a BS Diet.If you genuinely believe that you don’t have the time to date, then don’t date or certainly don’t give potential partners the impression that you’re up for and are offering more than what you are.’; the ‘I like them but I don’t know if they like me’; the ‘I don’t know what they want’…it goes on.
