Have You Been “Cookie Jarring”?
Have you heard some of the new dating terms? According to the New York Post, they are:
1. Pocketing. That’s when someone is dating you but knows it’s never really going to get serious . . . so they keep you away from meeting their friends or family. In other words, they put you in their “pocket.”
2. Cookie Jarring. That’s when someone treats you as a backup option while they date other people. Every once in a while they’ll metaphorically pull you out of the cookie jar . . . but only if they don’t have any better options.
3. You-Turning. That’s when you start dating someone and you really like them . . . but then you find out some detail about them that means you have to abruptly end things. Like a criminal record or a secret family or whatever.
