It is a season of love and big weddings, which depend on what you want and the way you want it to go. Eventually, our choices redefine us.
Finding love comes differently to everyone.

Dating streets are so saturated with many Gen Z terms that you will have to google the meaning of new words and catch phrases just so you are on the same page with the person.

According to Hinge, a popular dating app, which is used for online dating and making connections.

Launched in February 2013, the online dating application uses an algorithm. The app displays potential matches, which allow users to dismiss or attempt to match by responding to a specific piece of content on their profile.

The service emphasizes uploading user-generated content in a variety of formats, such as photos, videos, and “prompts” as a way to express personality and appearance.

The app is fully owned by Match Group as of February 2019. Hinge’s team of Ph.D. researchers and dating experts conducted surveys in August 2023 to more than 15,000 Hinge users across the world.

The report features data from Hinge Labs, a team of Ph.D. researchers and dating experts, along with expert advice from Hinge’s Director of Relationship Science, Logan Ury, Love and Connection Expert, Moe Ari Brown, LMFT. The report also includes testimonials from Gen Z daters.

According to hinge, there is something called DBL (digital body language. It helps to determine if they want to commit to go out on a date with someone.

This will lead us users to either embrace a “cringe mode”, which means to bare out their feelings from the get go without fear of rejection.

The next is initiating the WAW question (what are we?), which helps to define the relationship and often comes with commitments.

Words like “ghosting” which means to go poof and literally disappear out of someone’s life without a word or explanation, “bread-crumbing is the act of sending out green signals in a lukewarm attitude to hook you in without any commitment and never follows through.

It’s like leading someone on just for nothing. “Benching” is when you are used as a second fiddle with no intention of any serious plan just as in the case of basketball benching.

Being there as a second thought in case plan A fails, which rarely happens because you may not necessarily be the plan B even, “relationship” is an easy definition, which depends on the parameters.

Where the present situation at hand permits for it, just somewhere in-between friendship and relationship, usually undefined. This leaves one or both parties in total mayhem.
