NEW YORK - MAY 28: Single New Yorkers chat during a HurryDate speed dating event May 28, 2003 in New York City. Speed dating is a trend in New York, pitting dozens of singles together for dozens of short "dates" in an evening. Participants fill out cards if they're interested, and event organizers e-mail any resulting matches. (Photo by Chris Hondros/Getty Images)

We all like to think we’re ‘hip’ to the latest dating terms…but are you? Here’s a collection of the latest for those “in the know.” See how many you can guess by the name:

  • Caspering: Ghosting is what puts a lot of singletons off entering the dating pool with the fear of being given the silent treatment from a date. Caspering implies a friendly form of ghosting by giving your match some warning before doing a disappearing act.
  • Fleabagging: Fleabagging referring to those who consistently pick the wrong men.
  • Glamboozling: If you’re stood up, or bamboozled, having pulled out all the stops of getting the fresh outfit, haircut or spa treatment – you have just been glamboozled.
  • Flashpanning: Those who bail out after the first argument or two.
  • Yellow-carding: Just like warnings during sporting events…the “players” let each other know that if the behavior continues a red card may come in to play and the match will be over.
  • Cause-playing: Once a partner becomes an ex they disappear for good…until they suddenly message you out of the blue. And now, they’re not asking you back…they’re looking for a favor from you.

Having you already been a victim of once of these, if so which one? Let us know @themrlshow and tell us how bad it was and how weird it is now you can give it a name.
