Forget Ghosting, The Newest Dating Trend Is Mosting
March 22, 2018
Another day, another dating trend that sounds just plain awful. These days it’s pretty apparent that singles just can’t be straightforward with each other, so they come up with sneaky ways to deal with relationships.
Ghosting, in which a potential partner completely drops out of your life, has been around for a while, but now some daters are taking it one step further, practicing something called “mosting.” This latest dating strategy has a potential mate saying all the things, pretty much convincing you that you’re the person they’re looking for, and then proceeds to ghost you.
“Mosting is ghosting, but where before you ghost, you completely love bomb the person with praise, compliments and faux perfect soulmate-type stuff,” Tracy Moore, who coined the phrase, tells the Huffington Post. “The ghosting is much more confusing and painful, because this wasn’t just a ‘meh’ date that you could take or leave. This person reallymade you feel like you had a rare connection in a sea of duds.”
So, why would any man put in all that effort just to disappear from a gal’s life? Well, dating and confidence coach Nick Notas says it all boils down to sex. “These men know flattery is an easy way to build interest,” he says. “They’re usually thinking about having a casual hookup and don’t have the guts to be upfront. Because if they do, they think some women won’t sleep with them.”

American Families Lack Quality Time Together
March 22, 2018
These days kids and parents are so overscheduled they rarely spend that much quality time with each other, but it’s actually way worse than you probably thought.
A new survey finds that the average American family spends just 37 minutes of quality time together each day, although that number goes up to two hours and 40 minutes on the weekend. As for why they’re spending such limited time together, 67% blame long hours at work, while weekend chores and kids’ crazy school schedules are also factors.
With these numbers it’s not really shocking to find that 60% of parents describe their lives as “hectic,” while 25% say lack of quality family time is a real problem.
- And it’s not just family time that’s an issue, with parents also not getting enough time alone with each other. The survey finds that 54% of parents say they get at most only 12 date nights per year, while 31% get less than one a month. And when they do have time together it’s rarely romantic, with 65% saying their dates usually involve running errands or doing chores together.

The Best Airports In The United States
March 22, 2018
For a lot of people the worst thing about traveling these days is the airport, but it seems not all airports are created equal, and some are actually doing a pretty good job at, well, doing their job.
“Money” magazine has just come out with their list of the 15 Best Airports in the U.S., looking at 80 of the nation’s airports, and comparing them on customer experience scores, on-time arrival rates, security delays, amenities and restaurants and more.
Topping the list as the best airport in the country is John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California, which has an 84.98% on-time arrivals rate, and gets high marks for airport parking and access, the TSA process, as well as amenities, like 24 restaurants and free Wi-Fi.
Top 15 Best Airports in the U.S.
- John Wayne Airport, Santa Ana, CA
- Portland International Airport, Portland, OR
- Indianapolis International Airport, Indianapolis, IN
- Sacramento International Airport, Sacramento, CA
- Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, Bozeman, MT
- T.F. Green Airport, Warwick, RI
- Tampa International Airport, Tampa, FL

- Now if these are the best airports, you’re probably wondering which are the worst, and it turns out folks in New York have it bad. All three New York-area airports landed at the bottom of the list, with LaGuardia Airport landing dead last at 80, Newark-Liberty Airport (in New Jersey) at 79 and John F. Kennedy Airport at 78. Of course, all these airports are much busier than most. For example, the trio saw over 132 million passengers last year, while John Wayne Airport, the mag’s best airport, had only 10 million.
