There is a new term that has been added to the dating realm. It is called R-Bombing and it has been around for years (although it rarely happens on AsianDate). Only recently has it taken on a new meaning. Most of us are probably not aware of what the negative dating term means. It’s not nice to experience, yet it is a situation that commonly happens in today’s dating scene.
Everything About R-Bombing That We Should Inform Ourselves With
Basically, R-bombing means that the person you like ignores your message. They read it and you are aware that they did, but they do not respond. Before, it was a term used mainly by Blackberry users since it was in their device that the “R” came from. “R” means Read. The “Read” sign shows up on a Blackberry device when a user has already read the message. Today, however, the term is used widely because the same feature is now available on popular smartphone brands, and even social media.
Commonly In Britain
Two-thirds of British singletons were subjected to a study and they are quite troubled about this. A total of 62% of them admit that they have been victims of R-Bombing. And they think this is one of the worst dating practices they have encountered.
The worst thing is, 13% of these single adults have also been victims of “cuffing” after being R-bombed. If you don’t know yet, cuffing is when the other party tries to get back with you during the winter months. They want a partner they can cuddle with during the cold months.
How To Survive R-Bombing
On the average, a single person has been let down as many as five times in the last year by a date that looked very promising. So much so that the generation of today feel that it is impossible to find the “right one” for them. But, being a victim of R-Bombing is not the end of the world. Here are some tips to survive the experience:
- Don’t put your heart and soul into one person after a single date. He or she may look promising, but if it doesn’t lead to the second date, don’t fret. Save yourself the trouble. Get back up and move on.
- Maintain a high level of self-esteem. If you have a high level of self-esteem, you will not feel bad about R-bombing. At most, you will just say that the other person is rude, but you will not be hindered with continuing your life.
- Keep healthy friendships with both sexes. Maintaining friendships with both sexes will give you a healthier social life and you won’t fall down so hard if you were R-bombed.
We all experience pitfalls in dating, including R-bombing. The most important thing is not to dwell on it and move on. For more tips, check out the rest of the blog.
