As dating apps and social media ever increasingly shape our relationships, viral terms to describe modern dating behaviours are becoming more common. From ghosting to breadcrumbing and even gas-lighting.
The latest dating term to enter popular vernacular is "sneating" aka sneaking eating. A term coined to describe who strategically goes on date because they want to eat at a nice restaurant without having to foot the bill.
More subtly, sneaking also applies to daters who order up and purposely opt for more expensive dishes.
While Urban Dictionary dates "sneating" back to 2011 the term gained momentum when a woman named Sarah explained that she has no regrets about sneating with her Tinder dates.
