Each generation brings us new slang, but perhaps the most confusing and important words are the dating terms.

You can survive without knowing what "lit" or "hunty" mean, but not understanding basic relationship terminology can seriously damage your social life!

For example, texting "DTR" versus "DTF"can be the deciding factor of whether or not the guy you like is destined to be your boyfriend or a simple hookup.

Lucky for you, independent.co.uk has defined all the most relevant current dating terms for you!

1. Ghosting

While this term is relatively new, the act of ghosting existed long before the dawn of online dating.

But what does it mean?

Ghosting occurs when someone you’re dating suddenly stops making any contact, giving no signs at all that they’re no longer interested.2

It’s usually a result of them being too afraid to tell you they don’t want to take things any further.2

β€œOne moment you are flirting back and forth after a handful of dates, the next you are checking your phone incessantly, bewildered at why this person you had a connection with has so abruptly dropped off the face of the earth.”
