Oystering Is the New Dating Trend

What is Oystering?

Oystering is the term used to empower people who recently ended their relationships. It is derived from the saying, “The world is your oyster. You can achieve anything and go wherever you want to because you can.”

How Does It Impact the Community?

Sophie tells us that “Dating is daunting after a relationship, but it doesn’t need to be.” She also goes on to say that dating is fun, and what better way to get over your ex than having fun?

The Possible Backlash?

Like any trend, there might be a possible backlash from the hype. I hope that most of these singles looking to date again won’t put too much pressure on the rookies on the online dating scene.

  • There might also be cases of trauma dumping. It’s when a person unloads all of their emotional burden on a person to keep them from leaving because of guilt or fear of being lashed out.
  • What I’m truly afraid of is when those who came out of a relationship have intentions to abuse another unsuspecting victim. Most people just want to do it out of curiosity and to feel the control they lost when it happened to them.

No Need to Worry

In any case, there are both pros and cons to this new dating trend. After all, Oystering is meant to empower those who came from breakups. It’s their chance to have fun and enjoy the thrill of dating again.
