Because dating is hard and people are cheaters, there's a new term going around for you to worry about. If you loved ghosting and couldn't get enough mooning, boy oh boy will your ice cold heart enjoy cushioning.
From Urban Dictionary, the most concise definer of your dating anxiety:
Cushioning: "A dating technique where along with your main piece you also have several 'cushions,' other people you'll chat and flirt with to cushion the potential blow of your main break-up and not leave you alone.
'Yeah, I don't think it's going that well with Dave. Luckily I've been cushioning him with Pablo and Gary.'
That's good news for Pablo/Gary, and terrible news for Dave! Sorry, Dave.
