'Delicate Dumping' Is Trending
The Daily Mail says Delicate Dumping is the newest dating trend. It is the equivalent of Quiet Quitting a job and defined as ... 'a person, who stops investing the time, energy and emotion into the future of the relationship like they once did. Therefore, they will start doing the bare minimum - in the hopes their other half might break things off first.'
Relationship expert Emma Hathorn says, "It's the cowardly approach to ending a relationship, slowly retreating to avoid difficult conversations, or even ghosting. Like quiet quitting, essentially you are technically still "committed" but have stopped trying. A person who chooses to delicately dump someone rather than being honest and straightforward 'can't handle confrontation. It is the lazy way to break up with someone without looking like the guilty party. It’s the easy way out, but ultimately it isn’t the kindest way to end a relationship; it’s childish.''

Today is National Teachers Appreciation Day and I'm proud to say I'm an award-winning teacher at one of our area's largest high schools. I am also torn about what to do with my love life. I'm 26 years old. I recently reconnected with a former student. She is 19 and graduated last year. The chemistry between us is off the charts. I'm torn about whether or not to date her. Some would say it's unprofessional and taboo to date a former student, but I can't deny what my heart wants. She's legal so it's not against the law. Put yourself in my shoes. What would you do?
