The term “Mastur-dating” cropped-up in 2015 but recently, it’s becoming a lot trendier.
I didn’t find any one to go out with, so I opted to ‘take myself on a date’ (mastur-date)
It’s not like you are gonna ask yourself the question “will you go on a date with me?” NO
No one hardly ever wants to be alone, but there are times we are left with no choice.
“Mastur-dating” may appear like a word we all know, but as similar as the two words may seem, they mean two different things entirely.
With the advent of online dating apps, new dating and relationship trends are constantly springin-up. From sologamy (when people marry themselves), fishing (sending messages “baits” to many attractive ‘fishes’, wait for the one that bites, then start the chase), to ghosting. We’ve also had breadcrumbing, benching, and orbiting in the past. And now “mastur-dating”.
You’ve planned a special Valentine treat for you and your partner, rented a convertible SUV, booked a room at a very expensive hotel, and purchased tickets for the best movie showing at the theatre. However, on the D-day, they tell you it’s over. They go the extra mile to update pictures of themselves having a nice time with someone who used to be their ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend.
Such an experience can be mind-shattering. You feel like your world is on the verge of ending. However, you cannot let those tickets go to waste, neither will you decline to steam-up the Convertible engine. In the end, You decide to pick yourself up and have fun anyway. You opt to “mastur-date” i.e take yourself on a date, and have a nice time with yourself and no one else.
Mastur-dating can sometimes mean going to a restaurant alone, sitting at a table, and enjoying a special five-star meal alone, all the while knowing that other couples in your vicinity are looking at you, feeling sorry for you, or wondering the kind of a loser, loner, or self-centered person you are.
They hardly ever understand the hassles you’ve been through and why you opted for “self-love”
The term mastur-dating first cropped-up in 2015, but recently it has become a lot more trendy.
A recent survey has found that ‘mastur-dating’ is becoming increasingly popular by the day. With the rising number of breakups, we should all carve out time to mastur-date, meditate, and reconnect with our true selves.
