There’s a new dating trend in town, and it’s got the experts buzzing. Say hello to ‘dexting,’ the word that’s about to revolutionize your love life or, dare we say, the lack thereof!

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern romance, it seems like there’s a unique label for every situation. Take, for example, that all-too-familiar scenario: you’re out on a date with your special someone, but your phone has a gravitational pull you just can’t resist. Congratulations, you’re officially a ‘phubber’—a person who’s so glued to their phone that even quality time with your partner can’t tear you away from the screen.

But wait, there’s more! Have you ever experienced the spine-tingling return of a ghost from your dating past? If so, you’ve been ‘zombied.’ It’s like a creepy sequel in the world of dating!

Now, brace yourselves because ‘dexting’ is making waves in the dating world. You might be wondering, “What in the world is dexting?” Well…Dexting is when two people engage in an endless back-and-forth texting, but they never quite manage to take the plunge into the world of face-to-face meetings. It’s like a texting marathon that never quite crosses the finish line.

The term ‘dexting’ was cleverly coined by Amanda Bradford, a dating expert and the brains behind the dating app, The League. In an enlightening chat with Glamour Magazine, Bradford spilled the beans on dexting, saying, “It can make you feel like you’re in a relationship without having to do the real work or invest the time needed to form a genuine connection.”

Bradford explains that it can be seen as a safer option because you’re less likely to face rejection if you keep things in the virtual realm. As a result, these text-only relationships can sometimes outlast their real-life counterparts.

Dexting can lead you down a treacherous path of creating an idealized version of the person on the other end of those messages, rather than truly getting to know them in person. Bradford wisely warns, “Accepting and engaging in this dexting behavior can cause you to form an unhealthy attachment to the idea of someone, rather than the person themselves.”

Fear not, for Bradford has a solution up her sleeve! Texting is all well and good for building and nurturing a relationship, but it should never be the entire foundation. If you feel like dexting is taking over your love life, she suggests you put those screens on timeout.

Don’t let technology overshadow the magic of in-person interaction. And when you do text, make it count, so that you and your digital paramour are on the same page.
