out with friends. Benching is when you keep someone "on the bench" or on the "sidelines" or the "back burner." You're not that into them, but you're not ready to completely cut all ties, either - they like you, and you want to keep them as an option. Continued attempts at communication won't help.

They're just not making time to hang out with you specifically. Three of the biggest trends likely to be experienced (and complained about) today are ghosting, benching and zombieing.

Ghosting, it's easy to get riled up when you spot someone toying with you but how can we keep ourselves from doing the same?
