There’s a new dating term to be aware of and it’s called “mosting.”
According to Fox News, comparable to “ghosting,” “mosting” is when “someone goes overboard on the fluff job and then vanishes. It’s not just someone being complimentary and flattering; it’s someone faking being totally smitten when they aren’t. … It’s the worst of the love crimes in many ways, because a lot of people can act charming just for sex, but only a certain breed of total phony will cry love.”
According to Huffington Post writer Tracy Moore, “mosting” is basically “ghosting.”
“Mosting is ghosting, but where before you ghost, you completely love bomb the person with praise, compliments and faux perfect soulmate-type stuff,” she further explained.
So why do people go about “mosting”?
According to Next Level Matchmaking founder Joshua Pompey, the person may initially like the person, but then get over it.
“In many cases the man may truly feel the passion that he is showing up front, only to realize later on that he just isn’t feeling it anymore,” he told the Toronto Sun. “Rather than confront the woman, he takes the cowardly way out and just disappears altogether,” Pompey said. “This is the mark of an immature and inconsiderate man that shows no regard for the emotions of the person is involved in. These types of men need to learn how to deal with their own issues before they can ever be committed in a happy and giving relationship.”
