A Guide to make life easier when you are in the dating zone

In the age of Tinder and cyber-stalking, relationships are as complex as the next smartphone – the moment you figure out all the functions the model is outdated. To be up to date on the relationship scene, it is essential to be up to date with respect to the complex terminologies used in relationships. We have made a list of such complex terms and arranged them alphabetically so that you don’t have to bang your head while looking for them all over the Internet.

1. 143

Meaning

I Love You!

Application

When you are too shy or not certain of the response then can say 143. It’s a win-win situation. Either the love of your life will get to know what’s in your heart and reciprocate or would say “Oh sorry, but I just see you as a good friend.” In the latter case you can always reply, “What are you saying? I was trying to guess a self number, a concept from advanced mathematics. You may have not heard of it.”
It will save you from being embarrassed and give a backhanded burn.
