WATCH: "It's Complicated" when hiberdating jeopardizes both friendships and relationships



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:

"Someone who ignores all their other friends when they are dating a boyfriend/girlfriend.

ex: I haven't seen or heard from Jennifer since she started hiberdating Teddy four months ago."

Hiberdating is very common around the holiday season, aka cuffing season.

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.
