If you or any of your friends, family, or coworkers are currently trying to find the one and dating around, they've likely encountered this new dating trend. 

Is it really new? No. People have been doing these things forever. It's just now that someone has come up with a catchy name for it. 

Fireworking is the latest dating trend you should know. The term was created by Grazia. 

What are the signs someone may be fireworking you? The person you are dating is putting up a ton of photos of you two together. Some of these may be at cool locations like the big Panthers Game or some fancy restaurant. Essentially, fireworking is just when someone is using you and your dates as a way to show off to others. It could be friends, coworkers, family, and the worst an ex. 

The key here is that the person is using you. That's not cool at all. A person who is fireworking you, cares the most about what other people think of them and how many likes their photos will get on social media. You will know if you are being fireworked if the person is only showing you attention or affection for photos or videos they post on social media. If they act like a different person when the camera is away, you should run!

Here's hoping there are some good dating trends in 2020!
