With the advent of online dating, there is new lingo. Dating expert and founder of LastFirstDate.com Sandy Weiner defines some of the new terms you may encounter while exploring online dating. Ghosting is when someone suddenly ceases contact with no warning. Benching is intermittent dating with no commitment. Breadcrumbing is giving someone just enough attention to keep them hanging on but really keeping them in relationship limbo. Love bombing is giving someone excessive attention. This often is done by manipulative or needy people.
