Truth in online dating
And because you met online, there’s probably no common connections to begin with.
Hate to be the one to break it to you, but there’s bound to be secrets behind this stashing too…
When the honeymoon-phase is over, and you start to realise that you’re not right for each other, the emotional blackmail begins…While shocking to some, ghosting is actually incredibly common, and has come to be even acceptable in early stages of dating. As bad as it is while dating, people even ghost someone they’re in relationships with. Then there’s "stashing", which has become more prevalent with the rise of online dating.It’s when you’re actively involved in your partner’s social life, have met all the significant people in their life, but you have been kept a secret, stashed away somewhere.But if you ask me, submarining is better than cushioning, because with submarining there’s at least a possibility of confrontation and closure. It’s where people date you, but at the same time, keep flirting with other people, just to have their options open in case they get dumped.
