New Dating Term Alert: "Scrooging" Is Dumping Someone Right Before the Holidays

We live in a time where we have to keep inventing new words to describe all the nasty, cruel, psychologically torturous aspects of a modern dating life. Here's the latest.

The new dating term is "SCROOGING." That's when you dump someone before the holidays . . . mainly to avoid having to buy them a gift.

eHarmony came up with the term . . . and they say that based on their research, one out of 10 people have scrooged someone, and men are more likely to do it than women.

Oh . . . and since we're just a week out from Christmas, you might THINK you're safe from being scrooged, but you're not.

If you feel like the person you're dating has been pulling away from you a little bit lately, it could be because they're planning to scrooge you at the last minute this week.
