‘Breezing’ Is The Latest Dating Trend, So Forget ‘Ghosting’

Unlike ghosting, everyone should try this.

For the past few years, people have been obsessed with trends they find amongst Millennials in the world of dating. For a while now, that trend has been ghosting. Ghosting, if you don’t know, is “the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication.”

It’s basically the most f*cked up thing you can do to someone if you let them fall for you – completely drop them on their face.

While most dating trends have negative connotations to them – like ghosting – there’s a brand new one that’s come about and it’s not as horrible as you’d think.

Breezing.

You may have absolutely no idea what breezing is – you’ve probably never even heard it before – don’t worry, I’ll help you out. Breezing is a new dating trend that’s focused around the art of not giving a f*ck. While you think that sounds bad, it’s actually the best way to go into the dating scene for an individual. It’s not about someone not giving a f*ck about you – it’s about you living a carefree, drama free and easy going life.

Breezing means that you’re going into a relationship with an open-mind and a carefree heart. That you’re not caught up in the drama of “what is this,” and instead, you enjoy exactly what you have, while you have it.

Breezing means you don’t even think about the “awkwardness” of texting first – or sending a double text. You do what you want without worrying what the other person will think of you – you’re putting your wants and needs first – doing what you think is right in your gut.

Breezing means you aren’t playing games. You aren’t running around playing hard to get or taking “a step back,” to see if they notice – you go after them when you want to and go your own way when you want to. It puts dating on you turf and the ball is always in your court.

Breezing means you’re way less stressed. You’re not holding back how you feel and instead, you’re putting all your cards on the table. They can take it, or leave it – but you’re never worried about what if.

Breezing means no one else tells you what to do. Forget relationship advice and asking your friends what’s the next move – you make the exact move you want to make, when you want to make it. You call when you decide you want to call, you see them as often or as little as you’d like.

While I’m not usually one for societal “trends” and following the norm – this could be a movement I could 100% get behind. Being carefree and open-minded is important and imperative to a successful relationship. You can’t be always worried about what the other person thinks and biting your tongue in order to come off “cool,” or “indifferent.”

Instead, you should remain true to who you are. Maybe you’re the kind of person who likes every social media post they put out – own that sh*t. Maybe you’re the kind of person who texts more than twice in a row – own that sh*t. Maybe you’re the kind of person who calls first – own that sh*t.

If breezing means you’re remaining true to yourself – you’ll always end up with a person who loves you for exactly who you are.

And, that’s something I can always support.
