Here are Three New Dating Terms for You to Know: Pocketing . . . Cookie Jarring . . . and You-Turning

If your New Year’s resolution was to start dating more, why not take a minute to learn about all the ways those people are going to screw you over?

Here are THREE new terms that are floating around to sum up the modern dating climate . . .

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.

There’s an officer with the Avon and Summerset police department in England who was interviewed about budget cuts on the news, and someone noticed his name was . . . Rob Banks.

So now, of course, he’s going viral on Twitter for his name.

There’s a New Phone Case with a Built-in Fork and Spoon

Do you want to eat your cereal or pasta without having to take your eyes off your phone?  There’s a new invention for you.  Although I’m not sure it’s going to change the world.

There’s a Kickstarter right now for the “sphoon_phork” . . . which is a smart phone case with a removable fork and spoon.  And it’ll run you $29 if you want one.

The people behind the Kickstarter almost sound like they’re making FUN of the whole idea though, so it might be a joke.  And it’s getting a lot of press . . . but it’s only gotten $178 toward its $11,000 goal.
