All you need to know about the new re­la­tion­ship term: Stashed

The lat­est slang in the ever-ex­pand­ing dic­tionary of dat­ing terms, be­ing stashed is when your part­ner de­lib­er­ately hides your re­la­tion­ship from friends and fam­ily

Read­ing the lines above, if you’ve al­ready started fret­ting about whether you’re be­ing stashed in that oh-so ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship of yours, then stop! It’s im­por­tant to first un­der­stand this lat­est dat­ing term that’s do­ing the rounds online, and the rea­sons behind some­one stash­ing their part­ner.

The term was first coined by the Bri­tish pub­li­ca­tion Metro UK, and can be de­fined as a sit­u­a­tion where one’s part­ner de­cides to hide the re­la­tion­ship from their friends, fam­ily and so­cial me­dia. This doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean your part­ner isn’t into you. We ask psy­chol­o­gists and coun­selors Shivani Misri Sad­hoo and Anil Sethi to shed light on this phe­nom­e­non.
