The first time you watch the video, pay special attention to the correct pronunciation of the following words:

Sure, you’ve probably heard of “ghosting,” but what about the dating crazes zombieing, benching, or breadcrumbing?
It’s the name that the dating world gave to potential partners who stopped replying to any of your attempts at communication.
It just feels like you like them enough and you care about them too much to cut things off entirely, so you keep them around as a little backup option.
So, have you been zombied, benched, or breadcrumbed… or are there other slang terms that I’m unaware of?
