What You Need To Know About Breadcrumbing

What in the world is breadcrumbing? Apparently, it is an online dating term that’s similar to ghosting. If you haven’t heard of those expressions yet, the main point you need to know is you should avoid doing both.

Breadcrumbing Explained

Before we get into what breadcrumbing is, let’s talk about ghosting so we have all bases covered.

Ghosting means that you go off the radar without any warning or explanation. For example, you’ve been talking to this beautiful European girl for a while. You, then, decide that you don’t like her as much, so you stop all communication with her without telling her anything – not even a goodbye.

Now, we can move on to breadcrumbing. It is a term used to describe an online dater who contacts you on and off, not really making his or her intentions clear. This dater leaves enough “crumbs” for you to be interested but then disappears without a trace. After a few weeks or months, the dater resurfaces, starting the cycle of leaving crumbs all over again.

How to Avoid It

Now, do you see why both ghosting and breadcrumbing have negative connotations? You have to avoid doing both at all costs because you don’t want to lead someone on only to break their heart in the end. Here are some tips on how to avoid ghosting and breadcrumbing:

Be clear with your intentions

If you don’t like a person or if you just want to remain friends with a person, tell them.

Don’t go for the easy way out

Telling someone the truth. It can sting a little, but it’s better than to leave them hanging.

Be aware of your actions

Flirting with someone online is not a bad thing, but make sure that you don’t flirt too much to the point where a person mistakes it for you wanting to have a relationship.

Communicate

Aside from being honest about the type of relationship you want, you should also be honest if you won’t be able to go online for a few days or weeks. For example, if you’re going on a business trip, or if you’re busy. This way, they won’t feel like you ditched them.

All your decisions should be final

Before saying anything to the person you may be interested in online, make sure that what you’re feeling is not fleeting. If you tell her that you’d rather be friends, you cannot take it back.

If You’re Doing This, Your Dating Approach Is Completely Wrong

Granted, there are so many different tips when it comes to dating that it’s easy to get confused and disoriented. However, despite the fact that different people react differently to different things, there is one dating approach that is just completely wrong.

The One Dating Approach To Never Try

The worst piece of advice one can follow concerns the fallacy that women are actually intrigued by guys who treat them in a mean manner. We have all heard the old adage “treat them mean, keep them keen”, but why is it completely wrong and outdated?

First and foremost, this is wrong because you are not in school anymore. High School girls may have such low self-esteem that they think they actually deserve to be treated badly, but grown-up women know better. If a woman is mistreated, she will most likely think that she doesn’t deserve it and walk away.

Second, with the technological advances today giving us the opportunity to communicate in a thousand different ways from wherever we are, there is simply no excuse to delay replying to a text message anymore. If you purposely delay a reply too much, chances are she will think you are not interested enough and write you off completely. It is less likely that she will get hooked on you for ignoring her like this.

The technological advances mentioned above also mean that the “relationship pool” is a lot bigger nowadays, meaning there’s a lot more potential “fish” out there for her to look for. And with the hectic pace of our lives these days, it is highly unlikely that any sane woman will stick by someone who is playing it too cool to reply to a message or to pick up the phone.

Sound Advice

In a nutshell, unless you are a high school student, it is unacceptable to treat a woman with anything less than respect and honesty. With the opportunity of International Women’s Day being close, we would like to remind men to never get carried away by advice that urges them to pretend to be something they are not and mistreat women in any way. Remember that meaningful and fulfilling relationships can only be built on mutual trust and sincerity.
