The 10 new dating terms you need to know about in 2022


Experts reveal the singles personalities you'll meet in 2022, ranging from 'time travellers' looking for a fast-tracked romance to 'anti adults' looking for a wild time post-lockdown.


Ipek Kucuk, who works for the international dating app happn, shared her predictions for 2022 dating trends, including how people will'move faster' post-Covid. 


Celebrity relationship expert James Preece agreed that 'fast dating' will be a trend.


Here, they tell FEMAIL about the trends that will emerge in 2022, such as increased travel and embracing childishness.


Most of us have heard of the dating terms 'ghosting' and 'catfishing.'


However, with a new year comes new trends, and the world of love is no exception.


Dating expert Ipek Kucuk, who works with international dating app happn, and celebrity relationship expert James Preece, who told FEMAIL what to expect in 2022, are making predictions for what's to come this year.



'Singles have had a difficult time recently,' Ipek explained.


'Our love lives have been put on hold for much longer than expected, giving us more than enough time to assess our successes and failures, and hopefully learn a few lessons along the way,'


They tell FEMAIL about the trends that will emerge in 2022, from 'Time Travel' to 'WanderLove.'


One of the trends for 2022 is 'time travel,' which is the act of fast-forwarding romances. The act of hastening dating or relationship milestones as a result of societal pressures, especially after singles 'lost time' during the pandemic.



WHAT IS IT : Fast-forwarded romances. The act of hastening dating or relationship milestones as a result of societal pressures, especially after singles 'lost time' during the pandemic.


'Of course, we don't mean literal time travel,' says IpekKucuk. Many singles, particularly those who are feeling the time pressures that society places on them, will be concerned about whether their time has passed to find "the one."


'After years of restrictions on social gatherings and, in particular, dating, some singles may be feeling more pressure than ever to achieve their relationship life goals.'


We will see a lot of quick couples, people who jump into new relationships and make some big commitments in those early days to make up for 'lost' time over the past two pandemic-ridden years.


'A less traditional order of things will also become more common.' For example, many singles aren't as concerned as they once were about getting married and buying a home before starting a family.'




WHAT IS IT : A dating monicker for singles who aren't afraid to show their wild side. Individuals who enjoy letting their hair down and being the centre of attention in all social situations, particularly when it comes to dating.


'There is certainly no shame in grabbing onto the fun things, or people, in life,' says Ipek Kucuk. This year will see a lot of loose cannons all around us.


'Now, being an Anti-Adult does not imply that you have no responsibilities. We believe that singles will embrace freedom (when it comes) and have fun while doing no harm.

'These singles are simply ready to have fun again after what can only be described as a difficult few years in which they discovered that life is simply too short.'




WHAT IS IT : The act of romantically travelling with someone new and experiencing the addictive chemical reaction that comes with meeting an exciting new connection.


WanderLove means being open to meeting new people and embracing your romantic journey, wherever it may take you.


'We predict that singles will use 2022 as an opportunity to explore - not only new countries but also new people,' says Ipek Kucuk.


'So, if international travel is still somewhat apprehensive, there are still ways for singles to satisfy their wanderlust, even if it doesn't involve boarding a plane!'


Singles are more likely to find someone on their wavelength on a similar journey if they embrace new experiences and step outside of their comfort zone.


'Take that risk and try that art class you've always wanted to try, or learn a new language – you never know who you'll meet while taking this step into the unknown.'


'Whether these encounters lead to long-term romances or a year-long summer love, these places and people are good for the soul.'


'WanderLove is the act of romantically travelling and experiencing new things, whether it is an act of self-love or with another person, and the only way to achieve this is to take a chance. It's time to get your 'WanderLove' on in 2022!'




WHAT IS ITA play-on-words. In a dating context, to reincarnate yourself.


Singles who are venturing into the dating scene and beginning 2022 as a new person, both internally and externally, after much thought about what they want in life and love.


'The New Year brings a chance for singles to take a step back, reset, and be honest with what they're looking for,' says IpekKucuk.


'There will be a new influx of daters who will take the time to'reincar-date' themselves!


'Whether they are new to the dating scene after ending a relationship or simply ready to get back out there with a fresh perspective, these singles are manifesting only the best for themselves in 2022.


'They will have taken a moment to reconnect with themselves, and with a positive mental attitude (PMA) on their side, these daters will not be single for long.'




WHAT IS IT: Singles who live in the present moment. These people are unconcerned about the pressure to do things the 'right way,' preferring to embrace whatever the universe sends their way.


'While it's important to have targets and set goals, it's just as important to focus on how we're feeling in the moment,' says Ipek Kucuk. I know it's easier said than done!


'This year, we'll see an influx of free-spirited daters who want to live in the moment.'


'When it comes to their love lives, these people embrace the word YES and let the universe decide. There is no 'life guide' that we must all follow.


'There are no boxes that we must check by certain ages. The Here&Now-ers will burn that fictitious rule book!'


James Preece, one of Britain’s top love coaches, reveals the trends he expects to see in 2022

Celebrity relationship expert James Preece shared his thoughts on the trends we can expect to see if 2022.


• Quality over Quantity

People have been thinking a lot more about what they want in a relationship as a result of the pandemic.


Many singles are no longer willing to date just for the sake of dating, so dating apps are no longer a quick hit.


They are looking for long-term options, and it is critical that they find someone who shares their values, emotional compatibility, and life goals.


They aren't concerned with superficial factors such as height and appearance.


Instead, they are willing to put in more effort to give people a chance and give them time to figure out what they truly want.


• Multi-Dating

Rather than pinning all of their dating hopes on a single person, singles are now more willing to keep several options on hand.


That way, if the person they like isn't responding quickly enough, they have other options.


It's a more efficient way to date because you can take things slowly and without feeling rushed.


If you were to apply for a job, you would go through several interviews until you got the job.

You wouldn't just go for one and hope for the best.


Being proactive is the key to finding the best partner because it puts YOU in control.



• Fast Dating

This is where one or both of you discuss your future plans together very early on.


They might, for example, invite you to a wedding in six months or want you to meet their family right away.


They can be a precursor to 'love bombing' and serve as a warning sign.


On the other hand, it could simply be a sign that they want to learn more about you.


This is something that will happen a lot more this year because everyone has things they want to do that have been put on hold for far too long.


• Self-Sabotaging

This has become increasingly common in recent years, and I expect it to skyrocket in 2022. 


It's where singles do and say stupid things that can derail a good relationship.


They do it because they are afraid of what will happen if they get into one, or because they do not believe they are worthy.


Cheating, arguing on purpose, or constantly looking for red flags that aren't really there are all common signs.
