But what does it mean when all of a sudden early in the new year that person who you’ve just started dating calls it off?

Did they get cold feet or have second thoughts? Or, have you fallen victim to a new dating trend?

You May Have Been “Snow-Globed”

The latest dating trend that’s sweeping the nation is called “snow-globing.”

This is something different than ghosting or cuffing, or some of the other dating terms that you may have heard of before.

Applies To The Holidays

What makes snow-globing’ unique is that it only applies to the time leading up to the holidays.

Other dating terms or fads can happen at other times of the year, but not snow-globing!

Involves Being Led On

One of the traits of snow-globing is that someone in the relationship has led the other person on.

They have made you believe that during the month of December you were in a meaningful relationship.

They have done all of the things that couples do together leading up to the holidays and New Year’s.

Things have seemed so good that you might have felt that you were in your own wintery snow globe fairy tale.

But sadly, snow-globing involves you being kicked to the curb as soon as the calendar flipped over into January.

It can be pretty abrupt, too, which, for the person inside the “snow globe,” can feel like their world is shattering around them.

If this new term sounds a little immature to you, you’re not alone.

Learning about the term gave this person flashbacks to their high school days. Have you ever been snow-globed?
