When it comes to dating, as if things weren't already complicated enough, there's now a whole dictionary of relationship lingo you need to know.

Recently we learnt all about 'Grande-ing', which was a term inspired by Ariana Grande and her hit song Thank U, Next.

Now we're being bombarded with a range of brand new dating terms, which are sweeping the nation thanks to the experts over at Plenty of Fish.

These include the likes of 'Kondo-ing' which is taken from Netflix 's Queen of Clean Maire Kondo, as well as 'Brexit-ing', which needs no guesses as to its origins.

Shannon Smith, resident dating and relationship expert at Plenty of Fish, said: "Brits are no longer just sweeping their love lives under the carpet. This Spring, singles are taking action to spruce up their dates and relationships.

"Following the trends we have seen in the dating world at this time of year, we've pulled together a list of terms to help prepare you for dating this month."

There are six trends on their list, with the first being 'Kondo-ing'.

Kondo-ing

Plenty of Fish took inspiration from Marie Kondo, 34, a Japanese organising consultant and author.

They describe 'Kondo-ing' as the practice of re-organsiing your love life to set free the people who doesn't "spark joy" for you.

You then go out and instead find a new special someone, who does make you feel that way.

Hinch-ing

There's not just one cleaning queen that's made the dating trend cut, Essex-based Mrs Hinch has also inspired a trend.

'Hinch-ing' is where a person "seeks inspiration from Mrs Hinch" to turn their messy partner into a cleaning guru.

Brexit-ing

As well as cleaning-inspired trends, there's also 'Brexit-ing', inspired by the current chaos that is British Politics.

This one is said to occur when a partner threatens to leave the relationship, then you manage to renegotiate the terms and stay together at the last minute.

Easter Ex-Hunting, Daffa-dilling and Blossoming

The final three trends are all inspired by Spring and Easter – Easter Ex-Hunting, Daffa-dilling and Blossoming.

The first is pretty self-explanatory and involves messaging an ex partner so that you have someone to spend the Easter/Bank Holiday with.

Meanwhile daffa-dilling is said to be when an old flame pops into your life at the same time every year for a short period of time.

And then there's blossoming, which might be the nicest one of the bunch and it sees a couple staying together at the end of 'cuffing season' and blossoming into the next stage of a relationship.
