Irish People Are 'Sneating' As Part Of A New Disgusting Dating Trend

We have a word to describe any sort of action that might happen between a couple on a date or while they're texting.

But we think this one is the most unfair trend yet.

It's being said that people are now 'Sneating' on dates as part of a disgusting new dating trend.

Basically, Sneating is when you agree to go on a date with someone, not because you like them or feel like you could build something magical together, oh no.

You 'Sneat' because you solely just want to get a free meal from your date.

This all comes from when a girl named Sarah told The New York Post that she had become a serial sneater and that she felt no shame in sneating a good few of her Tinder dates.

"Dan and I had been talking for a couple of weeks when he suggested we head out to a tapas bar in the city. He seemed great and I was keen, so I checked my bank account and headed out, determined to share a couple of plates and maybe have one glass of wine.

"When I got there, Dan looked about 10 years older than his pictures. And he was shorter than he said he was – and shorter than me.

"He was a nice enough guy but that kind of false advertising bums me out, so I ended up having five glasses of rosè and heaps of food. I even ordered dessert. When the bill came, Dan insisted on paying, and for the first time, I thought 'fuck it, let him'.

"I didn’t even feel the tiniest bit of guilt about letting Dan pay when I had no intention of seeing him again. He had a good job, he could afford it, and we had had a great chat and a few laughs."

And as Sarah explains herself, that's when the lightbulb went off in her head and she found out that she could eat for free at least once if not more times a week.

Would you be up for sneating? Or how would you feel if you were a sneatee and left footing a bill for someone who dated you for free food?
