It’s 2017 and dating terms have changed. BIG TIME. We’ve all heard of ‘Ghosting’ and a million others but this next one is probably the MOST disturbing. Say hello to ‘Cushioning’ a term used to describe people you keep on standby just in case things don’t work with the interest you’re working on now.
Hmmmm, how messed up is that? Apparently while ‘Cushioning’ the love interest will hit you up with a random ‘What’s Up?’ here and there to keep you around while he or she decides if they need you once things go sour with the main person they are loving on.
