Dating site lingo
If you can't find the acronym you are looking for please contact us as we will gladly add your acronym to the list. When we’re not worried about getting ghosted or benched by people who we actually like, we’re having to field off people sliding into our DMs asking if we’re DTF.This type of short form slang was used initially to help reduce the time typing.
The dating world has changed, and you’ll need to get yourself up to speed.
A no-strings-attached situation, which can be found on sites like Be Naughty or Zoosk, is when two people want to hook up, either once or on a regular basis, without the “strings” of commitment tying them down.

Ghosting The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.
This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just “get the hint” and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested.
