Some­times they have far more con­cise words to sum up com­pli­cated ide­olo­gies

GHOST­ING When a ro­man­tic mate dis­ap­pears, usu­ally with­out warn­ing. Then reap­pears months later, prob­a­bly af­ter a bet­ter op­tion fell through. GATSBYING Post­ing your fab­u­lous life on In­sta­gram in or­der to at­tract the at­ten­tion of some­one you fancy. A 21st-cen­tury homage to F Scott Fitzger­ald’s Jay Gatsby. SLID­ING INTO MY DMS When some­one you fancy sends you a di­rect mes­sage, usu­ally through In­sta­gram. #GRIDGOALS An im­age you’d like to post on your In­sta­gram (grid refers to the plat­form’s de­sign). They’re big on goals. #Life­goals, ref­er­enc­ing an am­bi­tion usu­ally demon­strated by some­one else, is also pop­u­lar. GIRL CRUSH Ev­ery­one has one. It is pla­tonic and as­pi­ra­tional. In other words: the woman you want to be.
