Dating apps and social media are increasingly shaping our relationships, viral terms to describe modern dating behaviors are becoming more common. The latest dating term to enter popular vernacular is “sneating” aka sneaking eating. A term coined to describe someone who strategically goes on date because they want to eat at a nice restaurant without having to foot the bill.
More subtly, sneaking also applies to daters who order up and purposely opt for more expensive dishes. Although Urban Dictionary dates “sneating” back to 2011 the term became popular when a woman named Sarah explained that she has no regrets about sneating with her Tinder dates.
