People keep inventing new words to describe the infinite number of nuances to dating in this era . . . Here’s the latest.

“Whelming” is a term for when you match with someone on a dating app and start chatting with them . . . but instead of flirting with you, they complain about how they’re overwhelmed by how many matches they’re getting.
