If you’ve been hanging out for the warmer weather to hurry up and arrive, you might want to rethink your enthusiasm.
The name ‘Freckling’ was dreamed up by website AskMen, and they’ve already branded it, “the latest disappointing dating trend”, so get excited.
According to AskMen, ‘Freckling’ is basically a summer fling, except one person is left feeling disappointed when the other person disappears, usually when the weather starts to cool down.
Apparently it’s often someone you know who is doing the ‘Freckling’, too.
“Someone who, rather than coming out of nowhere and then disappearing forever, is happy to come from and then return to the periphery of your life, not staying, but not exactly leaving, either, just going dark for the colder months,” explained AskMen.
Kind of like the freckles on your skin…
