Orbiting is the new dating trend to watch out for
Orbiting occurs when you cut off all direct, meaningful communication but continue to engage with someone on social media: liking Instagram posts, favoriting Tweets, that kind of thing. This means you’re keeping someone in orbit, close enough to see each other, but far enough to never directly reach out. You can read more via Huffington Post here.
