Roaching is the new dating trend...

It sounds gross.. like the bug ..but the 20-something dating scene now coined the term "roaching" ..refers to someone that is sleeping around with many. (a new term for a old pattern; it is like the 20-somethings think they are the first generation to experience life).

Even if you hit it off after an initial date and begin to see each other "frequently and intimately" you may be a victim of roaching ..and RAID can't spray your problems away

Signs that you may be "roached"..
1. They don't make or keep plans - someone who is "roaching" will wait for "better" plans to come along with someone else they are sleeping with.

2They aren't looking to get serious - they avoid the "talk" about exclusivity.

3. They keep you at "arm's length ... except when sleeping with you, of course... they may like you a lot, but they like lots of others, too.

4. They tell you they want it to be casual - a clear sign that there may be others the situation of being roached is more like a "friend with benefits".

So it is important to figure out what you want and deserve. You can't entirely avoid roaching, it is something that comes along with the beginning stages of dating be smart, know your boundaries, and get out when things don't seem right.

Regarding an online, cyber sexually intimate connection (like are found on Heated Affairs), the same guidelines apply...but the likelihood of being roached is higher ..I suspect...Heated Affairs seems to be filled with bugs ~~~

Dating is more and more have bed bugs and roaches to protect well as STD's, STI's. and COVID-19~ Yikes! I think I will just have a candlelit Grub Hub dinner with the hope to get lucky with myself afterward~.....

A new term for longstanding behavior....players...loose women...lothario...frequent flyers and now roaching. etc. The behavior will always be around and so will the monikers for it.

yes, it is a new term for an old behavior .. 20-somethings are so clever ~ but hey, it's their generation, their time, to make a difference ~

I just read an article about roaching this morning. It's just a new term for an old activity ... aka Tom Catting.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

now I haven't heard the term Tom Catting in a very long time ...
