Dating is a normal part of life, but in some instances, it can be an eye opener. While people are searching for love, sometimes, they neglect what they already have around them. In some instances, friends and families get neglected while two people grow fonder with each other.
There's a term for that. It's called 'hiberdating.' Urban Dictionary describes it as:
Hiberdating is very common around the holiday season, aka cuffing season.
Everyone out here looking for someone special to see Christmas lights with and I’m just at home hiberdating 😂— Ethan Wickstrom (@ewickst) December 20, 2017
The idea the someone would choose their girlfriend/boyfriend over friends and family pisses some people off. Some people believe there should be a balance between friends and your significant other; similar to a work/life balance.
It just goes to prove, that your significant other may not be changing your life, but the life others around you as well.
