When it comes to dating, there’s never-ending fodder about what to do, how to act and what’s actually appropriate. Add in the likes of Tinder’s “swipe right” culture, online dating and the new trend of “ghosting” (just disappearing without telling the person you’re dating why or where you’ve gone), and it seems like a whole heck of a lot more unnecessary complication, doesn’t it?

Well some women are taking a stance against the crappy behaviour that can often go hand-in-hand with dating, with a new Twitter campaign called #WasteHisTime2016. Basically, women are posting crappy things to do to their partners online (in jest, people!), all in response to what they put up with in 2015.

Unfortunately, things took a dark twist when some began to view the campaign as anything but a joke. While the majority of those who are participating clearly meant to joke around but never actually follow through on any of these horrible things, people have taken offence. In fact, it’s spurred a whole alternative campaign, #WasteHERTime2016.

The good news is that not everyone has responded that way, with some dudes even jumping online to defend the entire movement.

Okay, so obviously we could probably all stand to treat each other a little nicer in life, could we not? But at the end of the day, the campaign seems to have done what it originally intended to do: provoke a conversation about all the shitty behaviours that come with dating. In our opinion, if you are lucky enough to be with someone you love, hug them tight. And maybe bring them some flowers or an extra special hug tonight.
