Orbiting: A New Dating Term For A Strange Age
The dating scene can be a fun and adventurous ride but at times the journey can be an emotional rollercoaster. And by the definition of this new dating term, one is sure to experience the steep stomach aching dip of dating.
The no-holds-barred writer digs deep and showers his readers with his blunt opinions on the topic.
So instead of wondering if a “like” or a “watch” is a sign of affection, if the man won’t text you back, unfollow and block his ass. I was foolish, making Billy’s Instagram likes into more than what they were.
It’s best to understand what he means by orbiting to get the full grasp of why he is so coarse about the subject matter.
Back then, I thought of this as “ghosting,” when someone you’re seeing just falls off the face of the planet. But while he wasn’t responding to my texts, he was interacting with my social media. There’s a new word for this type of behavior, that may actually be more common than I thought. It’s called “orbiting.”
So there you have it! “Orbiting” is when someone you were talking to no longer speaks to you in person but still follows and likes, possibly even comments on, your social media posts.
If a man can’t give you love in real life, don’t accept his likes online. Until you see him in the produce section of your local grocers to confront him, stop wasting your time worrying about the shady online behavior and, instead, start sliding into the DMs of the next man on your feed.
