Just when you thought we were done with weird dating trends (looking at you bread-crumbing, ghosting, etc) a new one comes out of the woodwork!
SNEATING (verb): When someone goes on a date with someone else JUST for the free food.
YUP! They don't plan on continuing the relationship past the point where the other person foots the bill...plus they assume that the other person will automatically pay for them! YIKES!
I'm ALLLL for free food but this is basically a dine and dash that the other person isn't in on and then you ghost them right after!
The New York Times spoke to a woman named Sarah who apparently is a serial sneater. She said the following:
"I started being more strategic about the guys that I matched with on Tinder. Guys who said they were old fashioned or knew how to treat a lady were in. They were the ones who were likely to pay on a first date. Guys who said they were modern or into equality were out – they were clearly Dutch daters all the way. I started lining up one or two dates a week. Whenever the bill came, I did that lame thing where I offer to pay half but then don’t argue when he says he’ll take care of it."
