'Stashing' is the newest way to get screwed over in love

I found this interesting article on Yahoo news today that is both funny, full of truths and amusing.  Dating, for me, has always been a love-hate thing.  I enjoy getting out and meeting new people, but it can be exhausting.  Between trying to find someone that you have chemistry with, similar interest and life goals...is often a tall order.
Because I am a busy mommy, work full time and try to have a regular workout routine - finding time to get out and meet someone new is often difficult. Although I am very open to meeting someone when I do get out, I have and do use online dating. 
The article below, hits on a lot of things that I have experienced will online dating - dating fishing, breadcrumbing, stashing (girl... move on, ha ha), kittenfishing, catfising and ghosting! These terms are all explained below or linked to an explanation.  So if I have been through all of this, why o why do I continue to do the online dating thing. I ask myself this question all the time.  I have often deleted online my dating app... and then get back on out of sheer boredom. But who knows, maybe if I keep my heart open, one day I will meet my match.  
Read this great article below, on what to look out for when dating -
'Stashing' is the newest way to get screwed over in love
By Cassie Murdoch
Feel like your new romance features a little bit too much alone time? You might have been stashed.
What now? Meet “stashing,” the newest relationship term to strike fear into our hearts. We’ve already been victims of “kittenfishing,” “breadcrumbing,” “gatsybying,” “haunting,” and, of course, the ubiquitous “ghosting.” And now we’ve got this to worry about.
Stashing, as the Metro reports, is that thing where you’re in a new relationship and everything seems great, except for one thing — you’ve never met any of your new love’s friends or family.   You’ve let this person fully into your life, but they haven’t even so much as acknowledged your existence on social media or introduced you to one of their pals. Uh oh, you’ve been stashed.  Basically you're being kept a secret for one reason or another, like a little treasure stashed away in an underwear drawer. Ugh. 
When you press your partner about it, they’ll try to wriggle out of having to explain. Sorry to say, but they’re probably already in a relationship with someone else or have some other dark secret to hide.
The good news is that “stashing” is just a new name for something that people have been doing since the beginning of time. So this isn’t some new horror brought on by dating apps or Instagram. Still, it’s no fun. But don’t take it personally. It doesn’t mean they find you too embarrassing to share with their nearest and dearest; it means they’re a liar. And the sooner you can un-stash yourself the better.
