Summer. Perfect time to start new. Maybe, get rid of your current “human” baggage and find a new love or just find it to start with. Have you noticed we as a society seem to make up words for every recent trend? The dating world has given us a few treasures, like “friend-zoning”, “ghosting,” “benching,” “cuffing,” “R-bombing” — the list goes on.
This summer, there’s a new addition to the ever-growing lexicon of dating lingo: “freckling.” Basically, freckling is describes as a summer fling: love that lasts only a summer. Like freckles, these sorts of lovers appear for the summer, only to disappear again as the days get colder.
So if you meet someone this summer who mysteriously disappears in autumn and cuts off contact, you’ve probably found yourself a “freckler.”
