"Mosting" is another Dating Trend to Look Out For

It can be hard to keep up with all the terms for dating trends and what they mean these days. Just when we think we understand the list of everything from catfishing to benching to breadcrumbing, “mosting” arrives on the scene. So what does this one mean? Think of it as ghosting 2.0.

“It describes when someone speaks in hyperbole about how perfect you are for them, then disappears shortly after,” explains Bumble’s sexologist Chantelle Otten. ”Mosters like to operate at fast speed.” So mosting is nothing new, people have been doing it as long as dating has been a thing, but it’s just getting a lot of attention on social media, especially TikTok.

If someone starts showering you with over-the-top affection and compliments soon after meeting them, trying to form a deep emotional connection with you and then they seem to vanish just as quickly, that’s mosting. It happens to the best of us and the thing to remember if it happens to you is that it really has NOTHING to do with you. Otten stresses that mosting is often intense and short and may be done by someone who’s emotionally immature, but it’s “no reflection on you.”
