For Valentine’s Day, here’s some new terms for Covid-19 Pandemic Dating

Are you Dar-WIN-ing and hesitant because you gamble and do not want to end up wasting your time and applying Piers Pressure on all your dates? If your answer is “heck, yes”, then you may be up to your Covid-19 dating terms just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you have no idea what that question means, then there is still some time left to, so to speak, bone up for your Valentine’s Day date and learn some of the latest love lexicon that has emerged as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Consider this a follow-up to what I wrote in February last year for Forbes. It was a Rosetta stone of some sort of different pandemic-related terms that had already emerged in early 2021. There was, of course, the F-word. No, not that F-word. Do not fry fries or ink. The big new dating-related F-word in 2021 was Fauci, as in “to Fauci” someone. This was named after Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who was one of the very few voices (sometimes the only voice) of science during the 2020 White House Press Briefings. When you “Fauci” someone, you avoid dating that person because he or she does not take the precautions for Covid-19 or Covid-19 seriously enough. This term remains relevant today in 2022 because, unfortunately, things have not progressed as much as they could have or should have done from a year ago.

As Fauci continues to apply, it’s also a crazy counterattack: masquerade. That’s when you pretend to worry about and adhere to Covid-19 precautions just to charm a potential date. This, of course, contradicts the “just be yourself so you find your real match” advice for dating. It’s a bit like saying you like long walks on the beach when you hate walking and hate the beach. Apart from, this is worse because you are not only deceptive, you can also put others in danger.

Other terms from 2020 and early 2021 also apply. People still use video platforms to meet and have fun vates (virtual or video dates), Zoomlander (being more interested in checking yourself out on camera during a Zoom date than looking at the other person), and zump (the combination of Zoom and dump) each other. With uncertainty around us, turbo conditions (conditions that go extra fast due to the stress of the pandemic) occur without a doubt. At the same time, others may have FODA“The fear of dating again.”

In contrast, lockdown and quarantine-related terms such as locking block and quarantine bae ‘ is perhaps not so German today. The United States has not really had anything like a lockdown since the spring of 2020. Still, some people keep throwing around the term “lockdown” arbitrarily, as if it were phrases like “no drama,” “I love to laugh,” ” my life is already amazing “,” I am super relaxed “, and” I am an open book, just ask “on the dating profile.

Nevertheless, there are new terms that replace those that may have passed. Carly Johannson, who is on the Brand Team for the dating app Lots of fishcovered lots of these terms in another post The latest catch blog for lots of fish. Two of these terms reflect the fact that recent years have brought new criteria for determining who has been so far. The years 2020 through 2022 have been like a gigantic ongoing science test for everyone in society. And if you do not want to date someone who believes that keys stick to your forehead after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, you probably are Dar-WIN-ing (/ dahr-win-ing) or skip potential suitors who do not follow real science. If you use Covid-19 vaccination status as a dating criterion, you may be in the process of practicing Modern love (/ mod-ern-uh luhv), provided you do not go to people who are unvaccinated. Presumably, the term “Modern Love” originated because it is a game about “Modern Love” can be used if you favor those who were fully vaccinated and boosted with one of the three available Covid-19 vaccines. “Pfizer Love” does not have exactly the same pun, and “Johnson Love” can mean something completely different when it comes to dating.

The pandemic may have changed the way you approach dating. If you find that the pandemic has led to a need for more “strategy” when you date, you are probably gambling (/ gam-bit-ing), which comes from the concept of chess to make a calculated move. After all, who knows what tomorrow will bring and you need to be considerate about how you spend your time. Alternatively, you may have become less conscious, more willing to do anything because you know who knows what tomorrow brings. It may include baecationing (/ bey-key-shuhn-ing), go on vacation with a blind date or someone you really do not know very well.

Such divergent approaches can make you feel like you are in limbo. Not limbo, the dance that involves bending under a pole, but limbo, as in a period of uncertainty that matches the uncertainty in society right now. Hesidering (/ hez-i-deit-ing) is when you are in doubt about what to do when dating. Should you take a Seal Team approach to dating, and list yourself on all the available dating apps and sites out there so you can have 7,128 conversations with strangers at once? Or do you just need to relax?

Of course, going full on dating can seem like a big effort with a little return. Participates in messaging app conversations like “what’s going on”, “fat”, “yes, it’s my picture”, “yes, it’s a fish in my hand”, “it’s snowing here too, lol”, and “what means it with giant ax, “can make you feel like you’re throwing valuable time into the wind. One option is communicates (/ kuh-myoo-nuh-dayt-ting) when using “dating apps not only for dating and intimate relationships, but to make friends and connections,” in Johannson’s words.

Even when you get to the main stage and go on a real date, the pandemic may have changed personal dynamics. Whereas before you may have hugged each other more freely, there may be handcipation (/ hand-tis-uh-pey-shuhn), which is the oh-my-godness-what-do-I-feel. Do you actually go through with the pressing bodies for each other things? Do you shake hands? Or do you wave to each other, do the blinking and the gun movement, or do you let go of the semaphores?

It also seems that people are a little (or much) more willing to express their true opinions these days and do not waste so much time pretending to be someone they are not, which in many ways is good. You or your date can go pretty abruptly over each other if you find a difference in meaning, which would be relevant Piers Press (/ peers-presh-ur).

Yes, the pandemic has been like a giant vacuum cleaner. While the pandemic has sucked in many ways, it has also removed things that had covered up and hidden long-standing problems. This may have led to some resignation (/ ri-zahyn-ing), which is when you finally realize that your serious relationship is not going where you want to go, and take a step to end it. As they say, it is to settle for sand in your swimsuit. Or maybe you found yourself in a real-life rom-com where you’re doing something residence cationing (/ stay-cay-shun-ing) and finally romantic connection with the person who has been around you all along.

Ultimately, dating is about finding your match instead of striving for what or who everyone else seems to want. It is not a one size fits all situation. It may help to gamble a little. But do not hesitate if you find yourself hesitant. After all, you never know what’s around the corner. Happy Valentines Day.
