'Benching' Emerges As The Most Obnoxious Dating Trend Of 2023 - Everything You Need To Know

If you’re into the dating game, you’ve probably heard of all the lingo from being ‘ghosted’ to being ‘zombie’ to ‘breadcrumbed’, but have you ever heard of being ‘on the bench’?

As if the world of dating isn’t hard enough, there seems to be an entire language associated with it that you have to learn if you want to understand it all. Obviously, most of us have heard of “ghosting” and “silent quits” in the dating or work world.

Being ‘zombie’ is similar to ghosting, but in some ways it’s worse. Banking, on the other hand, is a little different, although it’s still a very bad way to treat someone.

Obviously, ghosting is when you abruptly stop talking to someone or start ignoring them (the result is essentially the same) without informing them. You basically become a ghost.

Benching is a bit different in that it seems to imply that while you still like this person enough to spend time with them when it suits you, you’re not eager to start a relationship with them if someone better or more attractive becomes available. .

Consider the world of professional sports, for example. In soccer, you may have a first team that you call up during the season and trust to get most of the goals, the strength of the defense, and generally your trusted people. However, in case of injury or poor form, you have the substitutes to turn to if something happens to one of the best options.

Where do the replacements sit? At the bank, you guessed it. So if he gets texts asking if he’s ‘awake’ or if he just hears from someone once in a while, you might get benched.

The trend has been considered the worst dating trend of 2023.

According to Steph Koyfman of Babbel language-learning software, it’s essentially the same as “hooking someone up” but with a horrifying and decidedly dystopian chill of “2023.”

The bench simply leaves someone hanging by a thread before pulling them back when useful.

So maybe it’s time to acknowledge what’s going on and get off the bench. Is it time to go after the banker? Maybe it’s time to chalk it all up to a bad job and learn to love yourself.
