Tinder has launched its first Dating Dictionary to help decode the current “love language” of young singles. More than 60% of 18-25 year old Namibians speak a completely different language than their parents when it comes to dating, according to a recent survey. The dating verbiage used today is quite different from that of the past, where phrases like “slide into DMs” and “Netflix and chill” have become commonplace. The dictionary aims to help make today’s dating conversations more universal and ensure that everyone can share their experiences with family and friends.

Tinder has also worked with local dating and sex experts to collate tips on dating in this modern age that every Namibian needs to know. The experts advise self-reflection before dating, considering intentions, aspirations, and desires, as well as sexual health practices. In addition, they suggest reflecting on what is needed to feel safe and discussing barriers, contraception, and consent.

Dating has seen radical shifts in the way people are dating, relating, and having sex over the past few years, according to dating expert Jana Hocking. The rise in dating technology, a global pandemic, new research on sex & bodies, and a sexual revolution have all had a significant and ongoing impact on the way people connect with each other. It’s a wild world out there, and the Dating Dictionary could be the key to saving your love life.
