'Freckling' Is The Newest Dating Trend--And We're Already Rolling Our Eyes

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

A new term is hitting the dating waves. It's called "freckling' and basically it means having a summer fling or romance with someone who may not be around come fall.

The website Ask Men describes "freckling" as:

Someone who, rather than coming out of nowhere and then disappearing forever, is happy to come from and then return to the periphery of your life, not staying, but not exactly leaving, either, just going dark for the colder months, potentially 'cuffed' with someone else entirely. 

Freckles appear in the summer and disappear with the sun. So there you have it. 

 Somehow when Danny and Sandy sung about Summer Nights, it felt a bit more romantic, at least from her side.
