The pandemic has led to a whole new list of terms to describe unique dating situations.  They include things like COVID-worthy, which is “a quality a potential match should have before you consider risking an in-person date.”

 

Modern dating has so many ridiculous nuances that it requires its own vocabulary . . . I mean, there WAS a time when none of us had heard of “ghosting” or “catfishing” or “swiping.”

And now the pandemic has led to a whole NEW list of terms to describe unique dating situations.  Here are some of the best ones . . .

2.  sexually distancing, “when you heroically pause your sex life so as to not spread coronavirus.”

5.  antibody-boy and antibody-girl, “a person who brags about having antibodies on a dating app, hoping it will lead to more matches.”  (Huffington Post
