What Is Pocketing In A Relationship?
By AMANDA CHATEL
There are many terms in dating to describe your current relationship, so think about your partner and how you’ve started bringing them around to parties and meeting your friends, but the same isn’t reciprocated. It’s possible that you’re being “pocketed,” in other words, your partner is keeping your relationship under wraps.
The signs that you’re being pocketed are pretty obvious, for instance, a big sign would be if they’re active on social media and they haven’t posted anything about you. Other red flags include not meeting any of their friends or family, or if you haven’t been invited to events on their side.
You shouldn’t jump to conclusions right away. However, if you believe you are being pocketed the best thing to do is open the lines of communication regarding one another’s expectations and relationship timetables.
