According to Beta Male, there’s a new way to describe potential suitors being horrible to their potential dates.
This new dating term applies to people who date a lot of people at the same time and “bench” them because they don’t want to commit but don’t want the possibility of dating you to disappear forever. Similar to the sports term, “bench”.
So he or she puts you on the bench while they make up their mind.
They’ll continue to WhatsApp you, like your IG and Facebook posts, but won’t commit to making an effort to actually see you.
