Modern love has never been this ever changing. What was once chivalry, courtship evolved to the closest of relationships, wherein the notion of romance could spring from the closest of friends. When two souls find themselves in the same spark, they go along with the course of modern love. That goes with being knowledgeable on how to “define the relationship” or if you are “committed” as a couple.

Along with assuring that you have settled to each other is being familiar with contemporary dating terms to guide you on the course of the courtship season. Here are just some that one must know to catch up with the dating scene:

1. Benching

It is hard to find the right pick to be your lifelong partner. So, you would consider option A and option B on settling potential relationships. When that person has his or her top pick, he or she would consider them as option A, therefore “benching” option B (and/or option C et al if they are too picky).

When the status plan A fails, then push for option B. Basically, those who are “benched” are benchwarmers for the moment. So, they better aim for a more deserving option for a partner to wait to show up on their doorstep.
