Dating is not easy these days in Amarillo. It looks like it is getting harder.

It seems that dating is like mostly mind games. You don't know that the other person is after. If you like them you have to be real careful with what you say or ask. The wrong move could mean you just end the relationship without warning. This normally results in ghosting.

According to Urban Dictionary "Ghosting" is "The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date. This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just "get the hint" and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested. Ghosting is not specific to a certain gender and is closely related to the subject's maturity and communication skills. Many attempt to justify ghosting as a way to cease dating the ghostee without hurting their feelings, but it in fact proves the subject is thinking more of themselves, as ghosting often creates more confusion for the ghostee than if the subject kindly stated how he/she feels."

But the newest trend in the dating word is the "several-night stand". Basically you hang out with someone a few times a week with the goal of hooking up with them. But you never define your relationship status.

Are you dating? A couple? Just friends with benefits? No one knows. But if someone makes the mistake of asking, you break it off for good.

The crazy thing about this new craze. It is mostly woman doing this to guys!

So if you are single, good luck! It's rough out there.
