This might be called benching considering that the teenager is actually maintaining one other on a “bench” while checking out alternate potential interests that are romantic. It is the exact carbon copy of keeping them within the waiting room that is proverbial. This might be additionally whenever teens have LOR (left on read), which can be the moment that is heart-crushing the teen’s message is read but there is however no answer. Getting LOR leaves the teen second-guessing just exactly what occurred. Is the love interest angry at them? Or no further interested in them and have now relocated onto a love interest that is new? Or perhaps is this the enthusiast’s method of regaining control that is emotional of conversation/relationship?
